Many companies in the Asia Pacific region are moving to or contemplating a new model for delivery of facilities management services by outsourcing to expert facilities management companies. Moving from traditional FM service structures to FM outsourcing allows companies to access value that FM outsourcing can deliver, including significant cost savings, harmonization of service levels, and implementation of best practices, tools and technology across portfolios.

This webinar will focus on the issues associated with FM outsourcing. In particular, it will focus on unique aspects relevant in the Asia Pacific Market. Major topics to be addressed include:

  • Drivers of FM Outsourcing — why companies should consider FM outsourcing and how these transactions can drive value for companies
  • Optimal Sourcing Strategies — best practices for effective sourcing, negotiation and contracting with providers to maximize value from the relationship
  • Contracting for FM Outsourcing — critical contract provisions and tools in FM outsourcing
