With continued supply chain disruptions, rising commodity prices, and labor shortages, industrial manufacturers are finding it challenging to maintain their production assets and facilities. Here are 3 ways to help you meet those maintenance performance goals with these obstacles stacked against you.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted many weaknesses and inefficiencies in global supply chains. These inefficiencies have an enormous impact on the environment. The key trends driving digital supply chain transformation strategies that also drive environmental and social governance (ESG) goals focus on transportation, materials, and facilities maintenance management. 

Extreme climate is extending the current supply chain crisis, driving organizations to assess the reliability, efficiency and resiliency of their supply chain.  The ability to evidence strong Environmental and Social Governance (ESG) credentials positions retailers, manufacturers, and other multi-site facilities management (FM) organizations strongly against competitors. Top organizations are increasingly leveraging digital supply chain management strategies and emerging technology to drive environmental sustainability as a measurable performance goal.

Most people are resistant to change.  Change is uncomfortable. Imagine being not-so-tech-savvy and your organization decides to implement a huge tech solution that you will be required to learn to successfully perform your job. Cue the anxiety.

IPM Technician

I’ve spent over 40 years in the facilities trade, with experience ranging from general building construction and facilities maintenance to construction equipment operator. In the last 17 years, I’ve focused on Supply Chain Management in the Facilities Management arena. And for any multi-site facilities leader, the inefficiencies in the parts and materials supply chain and buying process results in technicians spending at least a quarter of their time searching or shopping for parts. And it’s a huge chunk of their budget as well.

One thing is for sure, Connex is growing and is determined to be the power house organization for Facilities Management. Here are my top takeaways and highlights from this year's event from a vendor perspective.
