3 Retail Facility Management Challenges and How We Can Help

When you work in retail facility management there are a lot of different things that you have to maintain. The role presents a whole slew of challenges in an individual location. Knowing this reality, a lot of facilities managers also manage multiple locations, making a challenging role even more difficult. We have identified some of the biggest problems facing facilities managers as well as ways Homesteady Solutions can help to solve them.


Outdated infrastructure

A huge problem in United States is our outdated infrastructure – roads ridges electrical grids etc. It seems as though a lot of our major cities are falling apart. Outdated infrastructure creates several challenges for facilities managers. Wear and tear on your parking lot from customers and delivery trucks, a lack of adequate parking for customers and employees, problems with electricity in your building, plumbing issues and so many more. When you work in retail facility management all of these problems are YOUR problems. Things outside of your control like crumbling roads and aging power lines can cause even more problems at your location. Our goal is to help reduce the stress associated with these types of issues. We offer pressure washing and cleaning services, we can help to repave your parking lot and more. Another example of infrastructure problems can occur when you power goes out. For some business owners this can create a huge loss of revenue. Adding a generator to back up your computers, registers, HVAC system, etc. can help keep you up and running if the local infrastructure fails you.

Vendor Relationships

Vendor relationships are another area that retail facility management experts must tend to. How do you pay vendors? How do you make sure that the contractors hours are verified? When will the workers be paid and how? All of these questions or something facilities managers need to be able to answer.
