Update – All places of work are furnished with desks, computers, pens, chairs and securty guards, if you work in a bigger organization it’s possible you’ll maybe have 2. For these security guards to work effeciently inexpensive communications is vital, so this article we found highlights the best communications for the office world.


Spanning both the private and public sectors, the Facilities Management industry is notoriously difficult to define, but in essence, it is all about taking control of ‘non-core’ services, allowing organisations to concentrate on what they do best.


Secure communication

The industry, is a large and dynamic with estimates of its size 

Facilities Management performs a vital function in the smooth running of offices, retail centres, industrial buildings, schools and hospitals. It has grown to become a strategic business discipline and today offers a wider range of choice in how specific functions and services are be anywhere between £10bn to £173bn depending on definitions being used and the range of in-house and outsourced services employed.

The extent to which services offered will vary and flex around a client’s need, the site being managed and the resources available but would typically include:



  • Health and Safety
  • Fire Safety
  • Security
  • Maintenance and Repair
  • Cleaning
  • Landscaping
  • Statutory Testing and Inspections
  • Operational Services
  • Commercial Property Management
  • Business Continuity Planning


The use of two-way radio communication to coordinate services within facilities is widespread with the ability to deliver clear voice and data transmissions to different teams located around a site to prioritise work, respond to situations, manage emergency procedures, maximise the efficient use of resources and ultimately to speed up and improve the quality of service delivered.


However as sites and user groups have become larger and buildings more complex in construction, existing analogue two-way radio networks are stretched beyond their economical capability and result in less than ideal reception dead spots. But now, with the extended coverage, programmable features and security offered by Kenwood NEXEDGE® Digital Two Way radios and their unique analogue/digital Mixed Mode (which allows them to communicate automatically with any existing analogue radios whatever the make) and turn-key trunked capability, facilities managers have a predictable and economical path to migrate to the benefits of digital at an affordable cost.
