Asset Management Single Source of Truth in Charlotte North Carolina

Reduxo’s Leanne Cluley was recently in Charlotte North Carolina to speak at the International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) Work Wokplace Conference on Asset Management Single Source of Truth.

With the assistance of our marketing guru Heather Smith from Write Approach Marketing, we came up with the idea that Asset Management or more specifically Asset Audit Data is Big Data. Let’s make that a bit more interesting and simpler to understand and call it a Big Thing. Then let’s “Australianise” it and when we think of Big Things in Australia we think of the Big Banana, the Big Pineapple, etc.

So what started as an asset audit data presentation on the importance of having an accurate asset base became a history lesson on Australia’s Big Things. Our international friends were able to relate as they also have Big Things or as they call them in America, Large Roadside Attractions!

The presentation concentrated on the importance of asset auditing but also why and how. Leanne shared many case studies of projects she has been involed in over the years and how they affect the ongoing management and lifecycle of the assets.

Leanne said “….it was a privledge to be invited to speak. The sharing of case studies ensured the particpants were able to relate to the benefits of completing an asset audit and having an accurate asset base to plan and mantain their facilities”.

The value of the FMA

Reduxo were pleased to attend the FMA Ideaction 2016 in Melbourne this week.  "To chat with your peers in the industry and learn from the speakers was very beneficial" said Leanne Cluley, Reduxo's CEO.  "To support our members and the FM industry is an obligation for all of us and I look forward to working with the FMA's Diversity Team to look at encouraging more women in FM.  The Diversity Team is not limited to gender but also focusing on age and culture.  We certainly need more young people coming through and to let them know what a great career it is."

The work of Facility Managers and associated support industries all working together to maintain our buildings and ensuring compliance affects all of us, from Schools to Hospitals, Commercial, Government and Office Buildings to Banks and Retail.  It provides a diverse portfolio and opportunity to work anywhere in Australia and the world!   

Well done Nic Burt, Kris Greenwood and the FMA team on a great event.   Looking forward to the Gold Coast next year.
