Our purpose is to provide integrated facility service solutions that allow our partners to focus on the development of their core business.
EFI understands how a successful business operates. A well-functioning facility greatly impacts the bottom-line. A failure of backup power generation systems can lead to costly operational downtime. Lack of attention to basic cleaning
requirements can lead to employee sick days. Both scenarios lead to lost productivity for your business. Our approach is simple: we are an extension of your enterprise.
Our sole purpose is to provide integrated facility service solutions that allow our partners to focus on the development of their core business. EFI follows a process-driven approach to service delivery that is paired with strict adherence to budget and operational cost containment. We partner to create a work environment that is operationally, structurally, and financially sound.
Learning centers of all types must be maintained in the same demanding way as healthcare environments. The safety and well being of students, faculty, and support staff is closely tied to the deployment of proper cleaning, sanitation, and maintenance techniques. Due to the constant influx of foreign agents via human transmission, the need for process-based maintenance programs is paramount.
EFI understands that the creation of a functional learning environment is closely tied to the overall operation of the facility. From well-lit classrooms to clean cafeterias, integrated facility services ensure that the most fundamental needs of learners are met. An equally important objective of facility directors and school administrators is to ensure efficient execution of facility budgets. Learning centers demand high value for goods and services received. Therefore, EFI specializes in process-driven facility management programs that maximize every dollar.
Patrons view worship centers with symbolic meaning. This meaning is far-reaching, certainly beyond the facility itself. However, the look and feel of the worship space can enhance the patrons' overall experience.
EFI delivers the attention to detail needed to maintain finely crafted woodwork, fixtures, monuments, and polished metals that often adorn these spaces.
Additionally, religious organizations operate on constrained budgets as the bulk of their resources tend to be redirected to the communities they serve. Working under this premise, EFI maximizes the value of facility spending to ensure the long-lasting preservation of physical assets.
Because members of religious organizations often share space, service delivery schedules frequently change to accomodate patron needs. This demand for flexibility is the cornerstone of EFI's approach to partnering with these institutions.
Homeowners share common goals when it comes to community and property management. They want to maintain, and in most cases, increase property value while controlling facility maintenance spending. This balance can only be achieved through tactical and strategic planning related to maintenance and major systems replacement. All too often, homeowners are asked to pay increased dues or fund special assessments because a clear picture of property needs was not accurately determined. Knowing the predictive maintenance requirements of a facility is essential. However, this understanding is of little value without the regimented execution of day-to-day facility services. The lifespan of major systems decreases exponentially when applicable maintenance routines are not followed. This type of neglect costs homeowners significantly more over time.
Quantifying facility requirements and long-term needs is a specialty of EFI. We are a service company with a clear focus on delivering value to our partners. We provide board members and homeowners a clear picture of funding requirements built on a framework of cost-effective facility maintenance. Additionally, EFI takes a systemic approach to analyzing community needs such as improving communication and increasing property value. We create a detailed plan to address the root causes of community concerns. Through this approach, EFI is able to strengthen the interpersonal fabric and overall functioning of the communities we serve.
Facilities with heavy product and material flow have demanding maintenance requirements. From preventive and predictive maintenance programs to groundskeeping, EFI delivers integrated services to meet client needs.
For example, because industrial complexes are often divided between the production or manufacturing areas and the common office space, EFI routinely constructs service programs based on this type of functional duality.
Although these facilities are unique, the extent to which these facilities efficiently operate still depends on solid planning and resource scheduling. This results in increased wrench time and better utilization of labor. Through the implementation of leading-edge maintenance programs, EFI increases operational efficiencies, thereby generating quantifiable cost savings.
The dynamic nature of today's retail environment introduces challenges that go beyond traditional product offerings. The retailer is confronted with the task of balancing product and presentation while operating under diminishing budgets.
This is coupled with the pressures of a globally competitive retail market place.
EFI's integrated facility service approach benefits our retail partners by freeing them to focus on their core business. For example, our bulb and ballast service keeps our partners' products in the best light and our expertise in floor care accentuates the visual presentation.
Additionally, EFI recognizes that location can mean the difference between a 24-hour product turn cycle versus that of a 30-day product turn cycle; our transition specialists offer our clients a low-cost means of enhancing their element of presentation resulting in a reduction in inventory carrying costs.
Companies in this unique market require an adaptable service company for several reasons. First, arenas and entertainment facilities require flexible service delivery cycles due to fluctuating event schedules. This exerts significant
pressure on human resources, event planners, and event management. Second, the pre-event phase requires coordination of service delivery personnel with event staff and other vendors, such as security, parking, and concession operators.
This integration ensures the success of each event.
In addition, entertainment complexes have basic needs concerning day-to-day maintenance. This component is often underemphasized because of the focus on special event services. For example, vertical lift systems, flooring, and lighting systems must be included in a preventative maintenance program.
Coupled with preventative maintenance, post-event restoration is key to the long-term functionality and value of the facility. Increased labor cycles must be utilized to offset the impact of event wear and tear.
EFI employs a project managment approach as an effective framework to construct high-quality maintenance programs for this market.
Public sector work demands top performance balanced with cost containment. When executing public sector budgets, the need to demonstrate significant value is high. Taxpayers expect their dollars to be used efficiently, delivering cost-effective
programs that benefit their day-to-day lives. Therefore, unlike other entities, government agencies are not chartered with building shareholder value but instead, with building community infrastructure.
Because of cost constraints, services must be delivered right the first time. This requires a level of trust between the government agency and vendors. EFI has proven itself to be a highly trusted partner by delivering quality services within the constraints of conservative budgets.
Finally, EFI understands the importance of maintaining facility security at all times. This includes security of information as well as the security of the facility itself. To support this requirement, EFI performs extensive background and reference checks on our prospective employees. EFI also administers behavioral and psychological tests as part of our comprehensive hiring and placement strategy.
EFI is fully compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). We adhere to the regulations governing the secure storage, maintenance, and transmission of private health information (PHI).
Healthcare organizations are also heavily regulated with regard to sanitation and disease control. EFI is in tune with the need to tightly manage hazardous materials and with aggressive techniques to control foreign agents.
Another hallmark of healthcare organizations is the coordination of varied and specialized employee skillsets to offer services. Similarly, EFI matches skilled labor with specific facility needs. These skills are garnered through specialized training and certification, acquired through EFI University and accredited technical institutions. Once the right people are in place, EFI utilizes a process-driven approach to consistently deliver cost-effective services.
