Outsourcing of security printing and other facilities
Facility management for a large or small office are standard requirements, but investing in separate manpower or personnel for looking after such tasks can increase operational costs for any business. On the other hand, automated systems can be handled by facility management services that handle systems and premises of more than one client. When a facility management service is appointed by a company in Singapore, the vendor company will send across a representative or more to look into necessary operations of a business as agreed upon in a work contract.
Functions conducted by a facility management service provider are as follows:
- Operate as well as maintain different office equipment such as computers, scanners and printers.
- Operate copiers, telecommunication systems, fax machines.
Look into office infrastructure setup and troubleshoot problems as and when they arise. Many vendors have tie ups with different office equipment companies. As a result, they also work as channels for printer promotion and other office equipment models. Businesses in Singapore can look at different facility management service providers who are listed in online directories for the city.
