UAE-based AG Facilities Solutions (AGFS) has selected MRI Software’s scalable Evolution facilities management platform to assist its ongoing digital transformation.
The software is expected to boost operational efficiency, increase automation, and improve access to data, allowing the company to provide more value to its customers, in addition to greater insight into process and system performance.
AGFS, under the umbrella Al Ghurair Investment’s reputed Construction & Services sector, is one of the leading facilities management companies in the UAE, with operations spanning Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Al Dhafra and the Northern Emirates. AGFS provides innovative, efficient, and sustainable facility solutions, for a diverse portfolio of clients, managing an operational area of more than 14.9sqm, with more than 4,000 operational sites, over 700 active contracts and employing approximately 11,000 people.
As AGFS continues along the ambitious transformation journey that it embarked upon in 2020, the company is now deploying MRI Evolution, an industry-leading facilities and Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) solution, across its entire operations. The software will enable AGFS to generate operational efficiencies, save time through automation, and leverage data and advanced analytics to make informed decisions – ultimately resulting in improved service for its customers.
Tarek Nizameddin, CEO of AGFS, says: “The Facilities Management (FM) industry is evolving, and we, as FM leaders, must mirror this evolution in our own operating models and strategies as we strive to meet – and exceed – our customer demands and expectations. Incorporating world–class technology into our digital ecosystem is a demonstration of our commitment to better understand, and continuously improve for, our customers – and so I am delighted to bring industry–leading MRI Evolution CAFM software onboard. As a business, we are led by our core purpose of ‘Empowering Facilities, Enhancing Life’ every day, and investing in technologies such as these will enable us to fulfil our promise, by offering smart, predictive reliability-based maintenance whilst generating operational efficiencies.”
The team at AGFS evaluated solutions from multiple suppliers based on its current and future business requirements. MRI Software was chosen as their preferred provider because of its ability to integrate with other systems, giving AGFS the flexibility to use technologies of choice and create an open, agile facilities management environment. Additionally, MRI’s local presence, understanding of the regional challenges of the FM industry, and best practice approach to implementation and delivery played a strong role in the decision.
Rob Stringer, General Manager, MRI Software Middle East, adds: “Large scale facilities companies like AGFS understand that the industry is changing, and organizations that adopt technology will have a competitive advantage when it comes to providing reliable services for their clients and operating in a sustainable, efficient way.”
MRI Evolution will enable AGFS to gain visibility into its operations by ensuring the team has access to reliable facilities data, documentation, and plans from a centralised source. The software is typically implemented to improve processes for asset lifecycle management, warehouse management, equipment allocation, energy and utilities management and contract management.
