Managing your facilities management supply chain just got easier.
As a Constructionline buyer, you already know how simple and stress-free it is to manage and source your suppliers through a dedicated compliance partner. But for your facilities management colleagues, supply chain management hasn’t been quite so easy – until now.
Facilitiesline is the UK’s only dedicated facilities management-focused supply chain compliance partner, which means it’s designed to overcome the unique challenges your FM team faces when it comes to managing suppliers. Our team has years of experience in the dynamic world of facilities management, so they understand how complex it can be to ensure that suppliers are compliant at all times, particularly when you’re handling a diverse set of sites, skill sets and requirements. With our support, your FM team can rest assured that they’re completely compliant, and simply concentrate on getting the job done.
Facilitiesline is a bespoke scheme that uses the same platform as Constructionline – so it couldn’t be easier to get started.
Facilitiesline includes many of the features that make Constructionline so useful, such as:
A tailored question set
With Facilitiesline, we give you the ability to create a completely bespoke question set, so that you get all the answers you and your client need. Whether you have specialist compliance criteria or prefer to use industry standards, we’ll cater for all needs.
An easy way to find new suppliers
If you find that you need to source a new supplier for any facilities management project, you can post your project on our Opportunities Noticeboard, and our suppliers will connect with you if they have the capabilities to do the work.
Proactive compliance approach
We go the extra mile to ensure your suppliers are always compliant, with features like Issues Tab, which highlights any potential compliance issues to your suppliers before they disrupt your project.
Pre-qualification for all suppliers
We verify all of our supplier members, so you can simply ask your existing suppliers to sign up, and we’ll do the rest. Once they’re verified by Facilitiesline, you can rest assured that they meet your high standards.
A trusted team
As a member of the Constructionline group, and with decades of FM experience within our Facilitiesline team, you know that you can trust us with all of your facilities management supply chain needs.
Onboard existing suppliers
Because Facilitiesline and Constructionline are linked, it’s easy for you to onboard any FM suppliers to your existing projects and segments. They don’t need to re-upload details and policies as we’ve already checked them, and we’ll ensure that any verification gaps are filled.
When you’re working with suppliers to deliver services for your sites or your clients, it’s vital that you’re aware of any changes that might expose your business to risk. We have access to unique data sets that allow us to assess financial, market and reputational risk, and can alert you if a change has occurred that might impact you. This early warning means you can take decisive action.
By partnering with Facilitiesline, your FM team will find it easier to:
You need to know that the suppliers you’re working with have all the relevant policies and processes in place, to ensure that they can deliver to your high standards. We proactively manage verifications for all suppliers, enabling you to constantly monitor compliance by exception, without having to manually check all of their credentials.
We know that every facilities management site is different, and your client and supplier requirements may vary, so we give you the capability to create bespoke requirements for each of your projects. This way, you can get all of the information you need – from HSE event history, risk of financial distress and modern slavery policies – and protect your organisation and reputation against even the most specific risks.
It’s vital to stay on top of your suppliers’ compliance throughout your working relationship to make sure that they aren’t exposing your business to any additional risk. Our platform enables you to check that your suppliers are continually meeting regulatory, ethical or corporate responsibility requirements. We’ll flag up when deadlines are approaching or certificates are expiring, so that any potential compliance issues can be resolved before they disrupt your project.
