Understanding the UK FM market

Many buyers prefer single-service contracts because they believe this gives them greater control over cost and quality. The benefits of integrated and TFM contracts still need to be sold to much of the market.

Competitive price is buyers' top concern still. Achievement of cost savings tops satisfaction criteria. Issues over unsustainable low margins on contracts have seen some of the largest FM providers breach bank covenants, be put under strategic reveiw or indeed go into liquidation.

Quality of personnel, tailored service and 'fit' are all vitally important to buyers. In addition to cost, it is clear that performance measurement of contracts is essential. Suppliers need to facilitate the decision through clear and effective communication. No company has a dominant brand position in any one service category still.

There are huge opportunities for suppliers to develop and implement brand awareness strategies throughout the sector.

Even the best-read magazines in the sector are most often described as read only just 'sometimes', and several FM publications / journals / yearbooks have ceased trading in the past few years.

Websites are accessed far more than traditional print, magazines, guides or yearbooks with i-FM leading the field in both numbers and users' assessment of value.

Reaching a highly targeted audience of facilities & property professionals. The highest-profile FM's with boardroom and budgetary influence. Visited by users most frequently - ensuring the visibility of your campaign. www.i-fm.net is the most looked at FM website, surpassing all competitors. Cost effective and successful advertising delivered in real time.
