Integrated facilities management

Making places more efficient and sustainable

ISS brings comprehensive, best-in-class services to buildings and assets with our Integrated Facilities Management (IFM) solution. As a strategic partner, ISS helps you achieve total operational confidence by consistently meeting and exceeding performance expectations. We earn that trust with self-delivered solutions that maximize the lifetime of your investments. Our IFM solution is driven by data insights that mitigate downtime, support preventative maintenance, and actuate unceasing improvement.


Centralized Services

Self-delivery model

An IFM solution from ISS centralizes technical services within the FM solution and minimizes the need for outside contractors. Through a self-delivery model, ISS coordinates all building operations and maintenance (O&M). Depending on our client’s scope, up to 80% of services are performed by an ISS trained professional. Dedicated to consistently increasing performance and quality, ISS supports a continuous improvement process with client satisfaction surveys and reports.

Account dedicated placemakers

Our account dedicated placemakers have the tools and resources to achieve the highest standard of quality. By self-performing the majority of services, ISS can track performance and prompt training when an employee misses the mark—increasing reliability and efficiency.

Demand driven variable support with SMEs

Capital improvement projects or major repairs that require specialized equipment or know-how are no match for our highly trained Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who work to meet unique challenges across your portfolio.


Centralized teams can collect the critical data necessary to benchmark asset lifecycle costs. With consistent key and critical performance metrics, ISS can identify cost savings overtime. Don’t get caught off-guard by costly, reactive repairs.

Data Driven Sustainability

With continuous data streams, our IFM solution provides insights that allow you to reduce building energy usage and take control of sustainability initiatives. Gain visibility with usage sensors in areas like bathrooms to pinpoint high-traffic areas and limit service to low-traffic areas.

Safety & Security

The global Covid-19 pandemic has altered what makes people feel safe in public places.

ISS utilizes sensors in high traffic areas to bring exceptional cleanliness to facilities with real-time metrics, so employees and guests never consider their health or safety to be at risk.

By self-performing services, our IFM solution reduces the amount of people that come into the facility, making employees and guests feel safe and secure.
