Working with a single service provider means that you outsource parts of your businesses to independent subcontractors. This could among others be a catering provider, a technical service provider or another single service expert.
While choosing a single service expert may provide a good way to start an outsourcing process, , it will still over time leave you with the task of managing a multitude of sub-suppliers, integrate the delivery platforms and deal with the risks involved.
Conversely, working with an Integrated Facility Service provider, such as ISS, gives you the opportunity hand over many of the service functions to one outsourcing partner. Such a partnership will then focus on manageing all service deliveries, administration, training, operational management, integration, innovation and provides strategic support to the buying organization. This means that instead of having several external service partners working with various service deliveries, everything is integrated in one solution – with one integrated service team focusing on your specific needs.
Working with Integrated Facility Services solutions will provide financial benefits and cost-efficiencies, due to the multitasking and integration of employees, integration of back-office functions, volume discounts, training volumes, and so on.
