Flexible equipment cleans up for FMs

16 June 2011

Facilities Managers spend up to a day a week on equipment related issues – HSS Outsource offers an innovative cleaning equipment solution that removes cost, hassle and risk

HSS, supplier of tool and equipment hire and related services, is launching HSS Outsource, a new service that offers a long-term equipment hire solution and aims to help facilities managers save time and money when it comes to equipment management. The proposition launches first in the cleaning equipment sector - at the heart of FM’s every day problems.

A recent survey, sponsored by the company and in association with the Facilities Management Association, highlighted the excessive amount of time that facilities managers ‘waste’ tackling equipment related issues. The survey found that up to a day each week is spent dealing with the management of equipment and that more than one in five of their own service related issues are caused by equipment problems. It also found that 30% of facilities managers worry about prosecution for equipment non-compliance.

HSS Hire’s Sales and Marketing Director, Fiona Perrin said: “We listened carefully to what cleaning service providers and FM companies needed in order to compete more effectively and we created our HSS Outsource service to offer the resources and support to help resolve those issues”.

HSS Outsource is a long-term asset management and equipment hire solution that offers a new way to supply, maintain and manage equipment. It meets the customer’s equipment management needs on a permanent basis, promoting ‘usership’ rather than ‘ownership’, optimising flexibility and giving customers all the benefits of ownership without any of the hassles.

With HSS Outsource, customers have easy access to a massive ‘virtual fleet’ of kit, helping them to move away from ‘fixed size’ resource infrastructures to more flexible ‘on demand’ solutions that can be scaled up or down in response to requirements. As new contracts mobilise, HSS Outsource provides the equipment; as they demobilise there is no longer obsolete stock – all kit returns to HSS with customers only paying for what is in use.

Under the HSS Outsource plan, when equipment is due for service or maintenance or if it breaks down, HSS simply swaps-out the equipment removing any downtime issues meeting demanding SLAs via its national network.

HSS Outsource will be supported by Reintec, a new, environmentally and operator-friendly range of best in class cleaning equipment sourced and enhanced in Western Europe and the USA and available exclusively in the UK via HSS Outsource. Alongside the range is a full consumables offer with HSS Outsource recommending Lime Supply.
