Introduction to Facilities Management Services
Owning your own data centre is one thing, but managing and maintaining it is quite another. Luckily we have years of experience in this regard, and in order to save you time and money, we’ll be happy to take over the management of your ICT facilities, at a fraction of what it would have cost you to employ an in-house Facilities Management team.
What are Facilities Management Services?
As the information age continues to drive the computerisation of information, many organisations are investing large amounts of capital to set up their own data centres. While this is mostly considered a necessary expenditure, many businesses neglect to factor in the concomitant cost of maintaining these centres. That’s where we come in. With no less than three Tier IV data centres, and the largest number of qualified data centre specialists in Africa,BCX has the experience and expertise to manage all your ICT facilities to world-class standards.
In a nutshell, Facilities Management involves the successful and profitable operation, management and monitoring of buildings and infrastructure. Our services include handling all aspects of administration and operations at your ICT facilities, from managing ICT floor and rack space to organising security access control, as well as any additional services you may require.
We also provide monthly reports on everything from availability to power usage and maintenance, so you’ll have a complete overview of operations in order to plan ahead and make changes where necessary.
