Sodexo’s Maximo System Leads Global Asset Management
June 30, 2016
GAITHERSBURG, Md., June 30, 2016 — From small businesses to large conglomerates with facilities across the globe, the daunting task of protecting a building’s infrastructure through quality facilities management looms large over institutions. Sodexo, world leader in Quality of Life Services, has implemented an Asset Management Framework— a set of documents, systems and processes that addresses an organization’s asset management responsibilities— to use with facilities management clients. Sodexo’s Asset Management Framework is designed to meet rigorous ISO:55000 requirements—the international standard in facilities asset management.
A hallmark of this framework is Sodexo’s exclusively configured Maximo 7.5 — a Computerized Maintenance Management System that tracks and manages all the systems inside a building such as heating, cooling and electricity. The tool, which is used by Sodexo facilities management teams in 42 countries, provides a global solution for premier facilities management service delivery.
Using Maximo helps on-site Sodexo managers maintain best practices that deliver consistent services to clients across the globe, optimizing the cost of operating a building by streamlining maintenance and managing preventive maintenance. Through Maximo, operators are finding it easier to manage maintenance needs, align service levels with business objectives, schedule and track labor, implement a cost-effective maintenance plan and measure the life cycle of systems.
