Roof Management Best Practices

How do you manage a remote asset with ease?

Did you know that more than 4.3 million people in the USA work remotely, which is 3.2% of the workforce. We can thank COVID for these numbers, but some may not return to the office. So how do you manage an asset that you cant walk daily?

As a facility manager, you are probably used to putting your eyes on the issue. However, this is not as easy today as it was 14 months ago. Restricted access and customer/employee safety are just a few items that make walking a building more difficult. Below you will find a few tips and best practices that can help you control your building assets.

  • Migrate your documents to a digital format. It may seem like an impossible task, but your contractors are more than likely already documenting their work digitally. Find out if they have any type of client access portal to receive your information.
  • Schedule proactive inspections. Even though many companies respond to failures, inspecting the assets proactively can find the issue before it’s a problem.
  • Research innovative alert tools. Certain assets that connect to the cloud can be set up to alert users of a failure or if tolerance is exceeded.
  • Retool the facilities management playbook to include a remote review of work.
    • You can require before and after photos of the work performed on the facility.
