The ongoing maintenance of buildings is time-consuming and a hassle for most property managers, owners and facilities managers. For this reason, Bidvest Facilities Management, one of the largest Facilities Management solutions companies, has expanded its end-to-end integrated Facilities Management services to offer Mobile Maintenance to the broader market.
The success of any business relies heavily on its smooth operation, which is in part contributed to well-maintained premises. “It’s important that businesses place building maintenance as a priority and ensure that it’s done regularly in order to avoid incurring hefty costs at a later stage.
“Ideally maintenance issues should remain ‘invisible’ and be dealt with quickly and efficiently with the least disturbance to daily operations. To meet these needs, we’ve introduced our Mobile Maintenance service, which offers companies one flexible, consolidated and customised contract to deal with all maintenance issues. This means that property owners and companies can focus on the daily running of their business while we take care of all maintenance tasks,” says Derek Jack, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Bidvest Facilities Management.
The range of
Mobile Maintenance services include corrective and planned maintenance with end-to-end management of electrical, mechanical and general building support services by multi-skilled staff.
Corrective maintenance services for general buildings include minor electrical, air conditioning and plumbing maintenance, replacement of globes or lamp, furniture repair, and hanging of pictures and white boards among others. Proactive maintenance on a scheduled basis is equally important as general repairs, and can be scheduled to prevent unexpected failure, which could affect the smooth running of a business.
“Depending on the size of a business, it’s very important to strategically plan maintenance bearing in mind how many jobs need to be done. The service is offered on a project basis with flexible contracts structured according to a company’s requirements. The scale of involvement can be upsized, downsized, and adapted,” says Jack.
Planned maintenance also includes health and safety compliance checks for buildings, towers, streetlights, mobile infrastructure such as containers, as well as standby power systems and major plant equipment. “With our Mobile Maintenance service, our teams can be scheduled on a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis according to a customer’s needs, with the back-up of a 24/7 365 days per year call centre,” concludes Jack.Click here for more information on Bidvest Facilities Management
“Integrated outsourcing is at the forefront of purchasing patterns, both locally and internationally,” says Derek Jack, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Bidvest Facilities Management. “It’s about buying multiple services from one service provider with the objective of driving down costs, and simplifying processes.”

Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) are, by their very nature, products that are designed to be sold quickly at a relatively low cost. Unlike luxury items that often need to sit on the shelf for an extended period of time in order to build up some exclusivity, FMCG products need to be sold as quickly as they’re advertised. With speed being the key ingredient in the FMCG industry, any weak links in the chain can harm a manufacturer's bottom-line.
