“We’re honored to participate in this podcast which shares new trends and innovations that benefit the Facility Management industry. We want to help leaders in FM and maintenance achieve their best performance …” said Ledwon.

DecisionBrain helps FM and maintenance service providers to plan and schedule maintenance, service and repair activities and the employees and contractors who carry out the specific activities.

"How well you perform [bidding, staffing up, and delivering FM services] depends on the quality of your plan... For example, knowing what mix of workers with what skills you’ll need to staff over the life of the contract (strategic plan) will let you … know better what to bid," said Ledwon.

DecisionBrain has experience in providing workforce solutions for Facilities Management Service providers like JLL and Serco and industrial equipment manufacturers and distributors, assuring that they make the best use of their precious teams and equipment. This is especially critical when managing through change and uncertainty.
“Taking new data and turning it into knowledge…understanding what is happening and [then] turning that knowledge into action; that is where decision support software can help., It can recommend [good plans and schedules that balance across objectives]. and that is why more industries are becoming data-driven.”
