Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust is to benefit from Idox's facilities management solution, CAFM Explorer, which will provide better visibility, reporting and mobile capability across its numerous sites in the region.
As one of England's largest mental health and disability providers, the Trust wanted to replace its paper-based system to streamline the management of its growing, complex estate. CAFM Explorer will replace a number of different data management systems, making it significantly easier for hospital staff to coordinate all aspects of its facilities function using a single, integrated tool.
Mobile capability will provide maintenance teams, contractors and engineers working across the Trust's numerous sites with the flexibility to access information on-the-move. A more holistic view of the Trust's entire estate will be achieved via asset-tracking features, preventing spend on facilities that are still within warranty and aiding decision-making.
The Trust will also be able to respond to, and monitor, reactive tasks more efficiently with CAFM Explorer's web-based self-service help desk, as well as scheduling planned maintenance in a coordinated manner to ensure compliance.
Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust is one of a number of clients using CAFM Explorer to deliver safe, efficient and compliant facilities. The Trust's transition to the all-in-one solution comes shortly after news that East Cheshire NHS Trust will also commence use of the facilities management software from Idox.
