Running decentralized maintenance systems across different countries - or across different brands has been common practice in the restaurant business. Different languages, customs, currencies and processes are often quoted as the reason. However, in today's data-driven environment, this country by country set up results in missed opportunities to make cost savings and efficiency. This presentation will explain how an international standardized maintenance platform gives FM executives the data they need to benchmark their organization, improve business performance and elevate FM's value, whilst continuing to support local operations and cultures.
Speaker: Jesse Klebba
When: Monday, March 6th from 1:45-2:15pm at RFMA 2017
