If you operate a facilities management (FM) company, you will want to provide the most high-quality service at the most cost-effective price point.
This is where subcontracting (or outsourcing) some of your services may have benefits.
Why outsource your FM management?
Outsourcing gives you more flexibility
Outsourcing means that you can quickly change the number of PAT testers you need at any one time, making you more flexible and more appealing to any businesses that you work with.
Outsourcing means you can do more
We can’t be in two places at once, but with outsourced PAT testing, you can not only cover more customers but more ground too. Customers receive a quicker service and you can service more buildings in one day.
It’s a win-win!
Outsourcing can be more cost-effective
As you are only paying for the PAT testers time, you can provide a more cost-effective and competitive service to prospective customers.
Outsourcing can help you scale up your business
Having a larger scope of PAT testers available means that you can do more. Outsourcing means you can apply for larger contracts and tenders, enabling your company to grow not only in size… but in turnover too.
Wates and their need for high-quality testing solutions
Wates is a facilities management company that provides construction and maintenance services to companies across the UK.
Hawkesworth not only carries out PAT (electrical equipment) testing for Wates regional office in York, but also as a subcontractor. Our team of engineers carry out testing for various companies on behalf of Wates, including a global law firm and an international investment management company.
Our engineers are City & Guilds qualified and DBS checked, meaning that they are cleared to work in schools, hospitals, children’s homes and care homes.
As a company, we are registered with both CHAS and Safe Contractor, meaning that we are fully compliant with QHSE requirements, saving Wates valuable time.
One dedicated person in our team manages the entire process for Wates, meaning that if they need to reschedule a test or ask a question, there is just one contact point.
Tina Howe, Account Manager at Wates said: “We need to work with subcontractors that we can rely on and Hawkesworth are brilliant in that respect.
“We hope that we will be working together in the years to come.”
