The Simplar Foundation is pleased to announce a free new interactive web series, “Ask the FM Doctor”, sponsored by the International Facility Management Association (IFMA). In this first-of-its-kind virtual discussion, facility experts provide practical advice in addressing today’s operations, maintenance, workplace management, and procurement challenges. Here’s how it works:
- Teaching Moment (15 minutes): the FM Doctor will kick things off with a brief presentation targeted at a specific topic
- FM Virtual Peer Group (30 minutes): next, we will split up into small groups and give attendees an opportunity to network with each other and have a discussion on a relevant topic. Learn More [links to the FM Virtual Peer group description]
- Ask the FM Doctor – Office Hours (15 minutes or until the questions run out!): we’ll come back together for an open Q&A session. Have a challenging contract renewal? Have a unique situation with O&M? Bring your questions and let’s get it figured out!
The March 21 Session is on Buying the Right FM Technology Solution for your Organization. Buying a new facilities technology solution is really frustrating for a lot of people! We will highlight the results of a new guidebook on FM Technology Procurement best practices. We will discuss strategies to conduct an effective procurement process, and review actual case studies for buying CMMS, Work Order Management, and other solutions.
