The new Facilities Management System allows for the scheduling and assignment of all manner of tasks, from the repair and servicing of air conditioning units, mobile and static equipment, and road vehicles to replacing airport runway lighting. Work orders are produced within the system allowing for multiple tasks to be performed on each asset item. Each work order has cost associations calculating labour hours (both standard and overtime) and the material costs. Furthermore, a full history of tasks carried out is maintained for each asset allowing for year on year analysis of the costs and materials used.

Paul Parkinson, Ideal's Director in the Caribbean, was the facilitator of the staff training exercise. Paul explained that the purpose of the Facilities Management System is to assist with the management and maintenance of all functional assets within SLASPA, including heavy equipment, building maintenance and company vehicles. Paul added "Anything from painting a wall to periodic checks on company vehicles and equipment would also be managed on the system."

Participants were given an opportunity to receive hands on training which will assist them with the effective utilisation of the system. Commenting on the training, Mr. Victorin Ghirawoo, Technical Supervisor - E & A/C, said "The training was very instructive and I look forward to making the maximum use of the system".

The bespoke Facilities Management System implemented for SLASPA is another computer software solution from Ideal Business Services Ltd, who have over 20 years experience as an international developer of software solutions for shipping ports, container storage & repair depots, airports, warehousing, cold storage and related logistics industries, as well as bespoke stock control software solutions developed to each client's requirements.
