Outsourcing FM&O Lets Companies Focus on Core Business

Dallas – July 22, 2009 – TAC by Schneider Electric, the building management and energy services business of Schneider Electric, offers complete facility maintenance and operations (FM&O) support that allows companies to concentrate on their core business functions. TAC provides its FM&O customers with a maintenance specialist on-site or on-call, creates a detailed inspection and maintenance schedule for each facility, and develops and deploys comprehensive energy management strategies. TAC also offers contract flexibility based on client needs.

“A variety of companies rely on TAC’s FM&O group to outsource the maintenance of their property, so we work in facilities of all types, such as manufacturing, commercial office, government, healthcare, aerospace, pharmaceutical and financial Institutions,” said Lonnie Laue, vice president, TAC Strategic Accounts. “We can do as much or as little as the customer wants. For example, TAC can manage just a few aspects, such as equipment parts or heating ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) repairs. Or, TAC can take care over everything, from janitorial services to lawn/grounds maintenance.”

TAC’s flexible program allows TAC to assume management of existing vendors who are already providing services (such as the lawn maintenance company) or TAC will bring in subcontractors to perform the tasks needed. In most cases, TAC places dedicated staff on-site at the client's facility so they can proactively manage everything in real-time. If the customer chooses, however, the FM&O specialists can merely be on call.

TAC’s program also supports sustained performance through operation and maintenance procedures and extended services. These can reduce the incidence and costs of equipment failures and crises and ensure peak performance over time. TAC’s experienced facility managers can adjust operations as the facility evolves and can assist owners in planning and budgeting for energy and capital expenses. TAC can even devise programs for energy savings and equipment upgrades that provide tangible results with fast payback, often with a return on investment that can be realized between two and five years.

“Our parent company, Schneider Electric, is the world leader in management of electricity and automation,” notes Laue. “Together, our complete building solutions allow our FM&O managers to provide a single approach for controlling all of a facility's systems, from power to building controls and security.”

Facility maintenance and operations functions that TAC typically handles for its customers include HVAC maintenance, control system maintenance, electrical service, general maintenance, computerized maintenance system management, project management, subcontract management, security system maintenance, energy conservation, and budgeting and expense management.
