Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad
Imdaad, a leading provider of integrated facilities management solutions in the UAE, expects a steady rise in demand for FM services in 2012, fueled by the broadening range of offerings and the growing ability of FM providers to integrate outsourced services into existing business operations and systems. Imdaad's positive growth outlook matches the sentiments of 72 per cent of respondents in the inaugural KPMG 2011 global real estate and facilities management outsourcing pulse survey, who expect outsourcing demand to increase over the next 12 months.
The global survey, which polled both buyers of outsourced services and outsourcing providers, further revealed that reduction of operating costs has been the top growth driver of outsourcing services, followed by improvement of the performance of real estate and facilities management processes. Moreover, 50 per cent of buyers have said that they plan to increase outsourcing of services over the next one to two quarters, while 44 per cent plan to increase within the year.
Jamal Abdullah Lootah, CEO of Imdaad, said: "There has been a significant increase in the number of companies, globally and regionally, that are outsourcing the management and maintenance of their facilities, taking advantage of the strategic benefits of FM services such as additional cost savings, minimized risks, and better integration with core operations. The positive growth outlook has been confirmed by the KPMG 2011 global survey, which also notes that improving economic conditions are contributing in the higher long-term demand for outsourced services. Imdaad is strongly positioned to capitalize on the favorable business climate in the FM industry, leveraging the company's reputation as a leading provider of integrated and sustainable facilities management solutions. Moreover, Imdaad remains strongly focused on innovation, sustainability and customer satisfaction as the cornerstones of our continuing thrust to satisfy the evolving requirements of our customers in the UAE and across the region."
Imdaad has gained a strong reputation as an adopter and implementer of the latest FM technologies and practices. The company acquires eco-friendly equipment and prioritizes sustainability across all its operations.
