with neustar means exactly that. More time to spend dealing with real
issues rather than wading through the confusion.
Facilities Information Technology. A suite of tools and
services created by neustar to make your life that much easier.
Departments have not been well served by in-house IT Departments
understandable as Business Managers perceive both Facilities and
IT departments as an overhead. Resourcing in both these areas can be
pretty spartan at times.
So how do get more out of your
already overworked Facilities Staff?
Give them the tools.
Lök8TM is like GPS for your Building or Buildings.
The purpose of Lök8TM is to enable you to quickly find people,
places and things on a CAD representation of the building, or query an
object on a drawing and find out all about it.
could be a desk, person, key, camera, fan coil, data point, risers...... The
list goes on an on..
So how might
Lök8TM be used?
Here are some all too familiar examples of how Lok8 has save time (money and man-hours):
The Company Postman
John the internal Postman is ill. The Temp Agency has very kindly send a
17 year old school leaver. He has a pile of post that is 3 feet high, and a
500 'seater' building in which to quickly find everyone and deliver their
mail. Lök8 solves that problem. He uses Lök8
to find the recipient, record the desk position on the envelope, then sorts
his post by desk number. He uses Lök8 to find the exact
location of any desk within the building. Lök8TM is
available via a WWW browser, so he can use any machine in the building to
find out what he needs to know.
The Lifts are broken
Two Otis engineers arrive on site to service the Lifts following an
incident. Where are the lift lobby keys? What are their key numbers? Nobody
I have a box of 250 keys and between 4 people all of the keys are tried. Two
hours later, the right key still cannot be found. Why? Because the lock was
so new and stiff, the correct key had in fact been tried twice already but
nobody realised. The whole operation took 8 man hours, frustrated the entire
population of the building, and cost in excess of £1,000, before the Otis
Engineers could get to work on fixing the problems. Lök8
will tell you what the key number is and who has been issued with that key.
A simple solution, saving £1,000, 8 man hours and a lot of stress.
Howard, Director of Commercial Affairs is expanding his department by 22
people, for a period of 3 months. Howard is not a reasonable man and like
all 'high power Execs' he won't rest until he gets his own way. There are
2,000 people in your building and Howard insists that his 22 temporary
recruits MUST reside in his departmental space. Your job is to accommodate
them. This will create 'Churn' and could involve reseating 50 people to
accommodate Howard's demands. Being the good Corporate citizen, you agree to
facilitate the request, but this is not a five minute job, if things are to
go smoothly. If you want to shave hours or potentially days off of this
exercise, you will need to know exactly who sits where, departmental
geographical groupings (eg: Desk 100 and 250 are five feet apart), which
services need to be moved and exactly where your spare desks are. You need Lök8, simply because it WILL save you hours. In fact,
Lök8 will tell you who is a member of which department,
where they are located and how much office space is consumed by each
department. Very useful, especially if you employ a departmental
cross-charge for accommodation.
