Incentive launches low cost factory audit for manufacturers

10 June 2008

Incentive Facilities Management is launching a low cost factory audit for manufacturers designed to save them in excess of 20 per cent on their FM costs, with a typical ROI of 500 per cent in under 12 months.

The IFM Factory Audit will enable manufacturers to receive a high level report reviewing all elements of their building services costs such as cleaning, catering, security, health and safety and non production maintenance. Incentive FM will visit the site (normally for just one day) to quantify information provided before the audit and then benchmark costs and service levels using its extensive European database, which has been developed following many years operational experience in the sector.

Recommendations of key improvements will be made, normally targeting savings in excess of 20%. Companies may then choose to implement the recommendations themselves or work with Incentive FM who will then help them through the change process to deliver the targeted results – be they financial, operational or both.

Commenting on the new service Jeremy Waud, Managing Director at Incentive FM, said: “Sectors that have embraced the benefits of cutting costs through improved FM control include retail and property management, banking and leisure. However manufacturing companies have been slow to join the party which is perhaps surprising given the economic pressure facing the sector as a whole. Our new affordable service is for manufacturing companies who are looking to increase efficiency and reduce FM /operational spend. It involves creating maximum benefit for minimum outlay and will give an excellent ROI. Our recommendations are not theoretical – they are based on operational facts that we have gathered working with some of Europe’s leading organisations.”

Incentive FM is an independently owned facilities management company that regularly helps clients save 20% from their Facilities and maintenance costs. Its unique ‘profit share’ proposition, which is based on achieved cost savings, guarantees customers a risk free solution and an ability to maximise savings opportunities. It has strong relationships with customers which include: Colgate-Palmolive, The Nottingham Building Society, Pall Europe Ltd, Cushman & Wakefield, King Sturge, and SEB Bank and Delphi Automotive.
