"The cry from the executive suite should become 'Prove it cannot be
subcontracted'." Tom Peters, noted business management guru, gave this counsel
to large corporations as part of a general recommendation that institutions and
companies concentrate resources and personnel on core business competencies while
hiring "Best in Class" service providers for necessary, but supporting tasks.
Peters' advice is reflected in the outsourcing of the facilities management process
of over 500 million square feet of commercial real estate to third party providers in
the past five years.
When does a company or tenant need a facilities management firm?
If you and your staff are responsible for the air conditioning and heating problems,
roof leaks, plumbing emergencies, landscape contractors, ADA retrofits, etc.,
let Halo Realty handle these facility management duties.
Whatever your industry - biotech, hightech, communications, marketing, insurance,
banking, manufacturing, etc., we will handle your emergencies, provide solutions to
maintenance concerns, and manage any problems with the lease and/or landlord.
You can now concentrate on what you do best ---- managing your business.
Are your occupancy costs higher than industry standards? Halo Realty's management team will
do an "operational audit" of your facilities and costs thereof. We are confident that this audit will
benefit your bottom line.
Acting in the capacity of owner's agent, Halo Realty provides these services in an individual
or integrated program. Our clients manage one provider and pay one monthly invoice for
all or any combination of the above services. A single point of contact and responsibility for all
service requests and work orders across a multi-site portfolio is attractive in a time when
corporate support is often overwhelmed and understaffed.
In addition to reducing corporate headcount, the typical adjacent savings resulting
from outsourcing are estimated by the Outsourcing Institute (a worldwide professional
association and industry resource) to be as much as 50% of the cost of a project
performed in-house. While expense reduction is the primary reason for facilities
management partnerships, most clients report that improved service to user/occupants
and a quantum leap in available portfolio information are often even more valuable.
Initially, a client may want to explore only the service options available for managing
a small real estate portfolio, then expand as service is warranted. Typically, Halo Realty's
findings, information and recommendations are delivered in a formal, written report,
which then enables the client to make informed decisions regarding their real estate.
We identify and quantify saving opportunities in these studies, many times offering
opportunities for immediate action. Regardless of where a potential client is in the
evaluation of its real estate assets, Halo Realty's Facility Management team provides the
expertise and resources to assist in the process.
