Chicago — Jones Lang LaSalle has unveiled a new scalable integrated facility and property management model that can save up to 20% in operating costs for real estate portfolios of all sizes.
Chicago — Jones Lang LaSalle has unveiled a new program designed to benefit companies of all sizes that outsource the management of real estate they occupy. Jones Lang LaSalle’s new integrated facilities management (IFM) program, dubbed “IFM On Demand,” is a fully scalable integrated facilities management model designed to drive cost and time savings through the use of a mix of dedicated and variable resources.
The service is delivered through a cross-functional team of facility specialists that provide the benefits of a dedicated management team but through a more flexible model. Services include facility management, workflow management, vendor management, finance and accounting, reporting, office services, lease administration, variable project management, space and occupancy planning, and energy and sustainability initiatives.
Fossil, a global wholesale retail company that specializes in the design, development, marketing and distribution of consumer products, is implementing IFM on Demand this year across its 471,000-square-foot United States retail portfolio to enhance its overall real estate strategy.
“The IFM on Demand service will enable our company to tap into Jones Lang LaSalle’s expansive suite of global real estate solutions through a tailored facilities management program scaled perfectly to our portfolio,” says Michael Passmore, retail facilities manager at Fossil.
The service provides companies access to services while eliminating administrative burden through a centralized workflow, call center resources, on-demand engineering services, cost and contract management and access to Jones Lang LaSalle’s real estate experts.
“Leveraging IFM On Demand has been shown to reduce operating costs as much as 20 percent in some cases,” says Josh Cohen, senior vice president, Integrated Facility Management. “The service allows businesses to outsource with confidence with the knowledge that every facility will operate with maximum efficiency, safety, and employee comfort — keeping costs down and workplaces and people as productive as possible.”
Jones Lang LaSalle is an industry leader in property and corporate facility management services, with a portfolio of approximately 1.8 billion square feet worldwide. LaSalle Investment Management, the company’s investment management business, is one of the world’s largest and most diverse in real estate with $45.3 billion of assets under management.
