Imdaad ‘expects rise in 2012 FM services’
Dubai, February 5, 2012
Imdaad expects a steady rise in demand for FM services in 2012, fueled by the broadening range of offerings and growing ability of FM providers to integrate outsourced services into existing business operations and systems.
The company’s positive growth outlook matches the sentiments of 72 per cent of respondents in the inaugural KPMG 2011 global real estate and facilities management outsourcing pulse survey, who expect outsourcing demand to increase over the next 12 months.
The global survey, which polled both buyers of outsourced services and outsourcing providers, further revealed that reduction of operating costs has been the top growth driver of outsourcing services, followed by improvement of the performance of real estate and facilities management processes.
Moreover, 50 per cent of buyers have said that they plan to increase outsourcing of services over the next one to two quarters, while 44 per cent plan to increase within the year.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, said: “There has been a significant increase in the number of companies, globally and regionally, that are outsourcing the management and maintenance of their facilities, taking advantage of the strategic benefits of FM services such as additional cost savings, minimised risks, and better integration with core operations.”
“The positive growth outlook has been confirmed by the KPMG 2011 global survey, which also notes that improving economic conditions are contributing in the higher long-term demand for outsourced services. Imdaad is strongly positioned to capitalise on the favourable business climate in the FM industry, leveraging the company’s reputation as a leading provider of integrated and sustainable facilities management solutions,” he added.
Imdaad acquires eco-friendly equipment and prioritises sustainability across all its operations. It also conducts recycling training for its clients and corporate partners along with free recycling bins and collection services. – TradeArabia News Service
