A key feature of the Loc8 building management platform is getting work done efficiently and effectively.
Whether it be planned, preventative or reactive maintenance, compliance, or emergency works, all can be managed seamlessly and interactively with Loc8. Making sure you get things done to the satisfaction of all stakeholders is a critical part of the asset management process, thereby maximising Net Property Income and associated valuation uplift.
As work flow is automated, jobs get notified, dispatched, and completed with minimal resources needed hence providing real P&L savings. This saving is both directly to the bottom line through the requirement for less resources, coupled with significant time saved for those resources assigned to manage the process.
Third party contractors and external service providers can now be more actively managed through the capturing of hard data relating to work flow. This in turn assists in getting the most out of your contractors both on the job and at tender time as you will have real data on which to measure and assess their performance.
"Compared with other service contracts of similar size and scope, Loc8 has empowered Programmed to consistently achieve savings of $65,000 per month in staff administration costs alone."
- BRIAN MORELAND, the GM of Programmed FM in New Zealand
Process and Content Transparency
Real Estate asset management involves a multitude of moving parts. Oversight of all components of a property is paramount for and Owner/Manager, in particular if doing so on behalf of third party capital.
The Loc8 property management platform provides a real-time view of your nominated assets configured to all aspects required to execute your operational process, strategy and reporting requirements. As the information is built from the ground up (jobs, asset reporting and asset tracking), transparency in both the process and outcomes around the assets is provided, in turn providing the ability to aggregate this information up or down your Service Supply Chain.
This transparency links all stakeholders in the service supply chain (Owners, Building Managers, Contractors, and tenants) by providing them with a detailed understating on what needs to be done, by whom, when it is to be carried out, and importantly, when it has been done so to everyone’s pre-set quality standards.
100% configurable reporting enables this oversight to be disseminated and analysed to further enhance the captured data.
Know your assets, know your customers
Location and hierarchical asset types
Create an asset structure in Loc8 that matches the physical location of the assets you maintain in the real world, that way you can easily find and maintain them when you arrive on site.
Loc8 supports a robust, hierarchical asset type mechanism so that you can standardise the types of assets you maintain, the information you put on them and the preventative schedules you run against them.
Use custom statuses for assets that correlate to the real-world states of the assets you maintain and own.
Planned and automated maintenance
Automatically generate task based work orders for assets based on location and required maintenance frequency. Reacting quickly when a customer calls is one thing, but planning ahead is a game changer.
Create condition and event based rules to automate your operations. Do you need to automatically notify someone when an asset fails, or perhaps set an asset to inactive when a parameter is updated? No worries.
Collaborate and share asset information
Leverage our next-generation customer portal to optionally provide your customers with visibility of their assets, including status, location and maintenance history.
Using our API’s, write custom integrations with any 3rd party enterprise software solutions you are using in your organisation to either push asset data into Loc8 or pull it out in real time.
Compliance and sustainability
Compliance management across your suppliers and contractors providing powerful data collection for contract review, tender preparation, and Owner focused reporting for risk management, activity supervision, and service level monitoring.
