We can support businesses in office-based commercial developments through to those in heavy industry. Even if you are operating in a rural, difficult-to-access environment, our local workforce contacts enable us to provide a high-quality, reliable service across Eastern and Southern Africa.

Our Sunbird Facilities Management business unit has established an international call centre and helpdesk operating 24/7, which will support clients 365 days a year, providing a single point of contact to report problems or service issues. The helpdesk is an integral part of our Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system, which provides our helpdesk operators with full set of data for each client asset. For each call, the helpdesk will provide clients with real-time performance and progress information, through to completion.

Technology

Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM)

We have invested in a world-leading CAFM system called Infor EAM. Essentially, it's a tool that helps manage the whole facilities management cycle of activities.

We also operate an internationa, African-based call centre with a self-service facility where the client queries can be logged and managed through a preloaded set of client asset information, priorities and KPI's. Our on-the-ground team are connected to the system, even when working remotely, via a Mobile App.

The system helps with managing assets and/or service type of interventions, from a pro-active item to a reactive call to planned preventative maintenance items. There's a major focus on safety throughout the process, with an active work permit system.

SLA Management with both our clients and suppliers/contractors is active throughout the process. Client staff participate in client satisfaction surveys on each client logged.

The data captured enables us to report on all activities, from calls logged, to KPIs, cost and performance. These in turn help you to keep track of the condition of active assets and plan for the future.

FREESPACE

FREESPACE is designed with the vision to help office users have their best day at work every day. The solution also provides managers with valuable information.

FREESPACE offers a full solution to three key stakeholders of a business office - the office user; the real estate manager; and the FM manager.

It is based on modern technology that uses the existing IT infrastructure of the office while being extremely easy to install and operate. FREESPACE features a powerful hardware platform with MULTISENSE technology and a data rich secure cloud-based analytics platform. In addition, FREESPACE has published open APIs for third-party integration and piping into Corporate Enterprise solutions and Mobile Apps.

Feedbackr

Feedbackr uses SmartTag technology, which enables users of a space our building to give immediate feedback via their mobile device at the point of service.

This could be feedback on cleanliness of an area, meeting room satisfaction or catering requirements (any metric can be set).

We will then be able to track response by geographic spead and time of day, obtain detailed comments about specific experiences, and be alerted on any negative feedback.

All data is recorded on a real-time system and fed through to a live dashboard, allowing for an immediate response. The immediate advantages for clients are as follows:

+ Unique identifiable code that tracks each location seperately

+ View who is giving feedback and from which location

+ Get specific comments about personal experience

+ Get live alerts sent when negative feedback is registered

+ Comments offer genuine insight into customer experience

+ Set up custom alerts to trigger on one or more negative comment
