Romec Receives Commendation for Service Management Excellence at Information Management Awards 2005
Studley, England (ots/PRNewswire) - Facilities management company, Romec, has been awarded a special commendation in the 'Mobile Information Award' category for a paperless integrated mobile service business project. This was presented at the Information Management Awards which was held at The Grosvenor House Hotel in December 2005.
The Information Management Awards, now in their tenth year, recognise excellence and innovation in the management of business information across Europe. All entries are subjected to a rigorous examination by 40 independent expert judges, and winners are selected based on the demonstration of real business benefits with substantial and measurable ROI resulting from best practice information management.
Established in 1989 as Royal Mail Engineering and Construction, Romec is now jointly owned by Royal Mail and Haden Building Management Ltd (part of Balfour Beatty Group). In 2001 Romec selected Geac's BlueStream solution. The remit included the provision of a mobile service management platform to replace disparate service and paper-based systems - initially to provide ultimate efficiency for its 1000 field engineers, reduce mobile phone bills and increase customer service. Once the implementation was complete in 2002 the success spread. More divisions demanded it and customers started driving new requirements as did Romec's internal compliance team. In 2004 the board wanted to 'join up' the entire company to provide a single view of the enterprise to maximise competitiveness, profitability and compliance. Through this wide application of BlueStream Romec has become one of the most advanced users of IT and a leading player in the facilities management industry.
Paul Heron, Business Manager for BlueStream at Geac, comments: "Romec has transformed its mobile service management model dramatically in recent years and fully deserves this commendation. We are proud to have played a part in the transformation that led to the award and look forward to working with Romec in the future to support further changes and efficiency savings."
"Geac's BlueStream service management solution is designed to help increase efficiencies and profitability, plan and execute effectively, ensure compliance and gain competitive advantage. Romec is a great example of the best practice which can be gained through using the solution."
Keith Palmer, Romec's Sales and Marketing Director, concluded:
"This entire project has been revolutionary. Now we all recognise that we have a huge edge on the competition. No one can match our technological advantage and hence we're winning many bids because of the excellent service we can consistently deliver and our ability to measure our performance against exacting customer standards."
