Connex Helps Retailers Impacted by Coronavirus Share Information

by Katie Lee

DallasConnex, the multi-site facilities management network, formerly known as PRSM, is helping retailers protect shoppers and employees from the coronavirus by providing them resources and the ability to connect, ask questions, and share vital information, experiences and recommendations.

Protecting shoppers and employees is the Number 1 priority for retailers.  While proven methods of cleaning and sanitizing are helpful, new methods and new products are introduced almost daily.

Connex helps multi-site facilities management (FM) pros by providing leading-edge information and resources, and an easy way for them to connect and share information.

“Factual, useful information, about how to protect shoppers and employees, is the best weapon we (Connex) can provide our multi-site FM members,” says Bill Yanek, Connex CEO.

“And the best information comes from retailers and suppliers who have successfully managed programs addressing similar issues. We provide that conduit where retailers and suppliers engaged in this battle can share critical information, and ask the important questions, in our online communities.”

Connex has created two online communities: one where any Connex member can share information, ask questions and get advice. The second community is reserved for multi-site retail facilities managers only to provide them a private community to ask for recommendations from other retailers on how to best battle the virus. The association has also created a news and resources page dedicated specifically to facilities management news about the coronavirus.

More than 650 supplier companies are Connex members, along with 350 leading retail, entertainment, healthcare and financial companies. Connex also provides retailers a wide range of events and resources ranging from white papers to online tools and best practices.

Connex is the leading membership organization for multi-site facilities managers and supplier professionals. Established in 1995, and based in Irving, Texas, Connex empowers facilities management professionals with events, best practices, benchmarking, education, discussion forums and trusted partnerships.
