As governments begin to ease stay-at-home orders and social distancing restrictions are lessened, the return to work is on the horizon. This will be also be a critical transition period for many organisations throughout the world. Employers would like nothing more than to return to a ‘business as usual’ mentality, but unfortunately, that just is not possible.

The building operational readiness process is extensive, and no detail is too small to consider. Enhancing safety standards and implementing clear sterilisation protocols are just part of ensuring your facilities are ready for the return of employees. It also entails conducting a comprehensive assessment of the physical building and taking steps to understand what re-opening really entails after a building has been offline or in limited use.

Organisations with a global footprint will face significantly higher challenges. Whether they own property or have outsourced facility management, business leaders will need to heavily consider compliance and controls within their business continuity plans where they adhere to both national and regional recommendations. One of the best ways to do this is to include building readiness assessments in your business continuity plan.

Technology can play a significant role in helping organisations prepare for the return to the workplace. When conducting your comprehensive building readiness assessments, a manual approach may expose your organisation to a higher degree of risk (e.g., data inconsistency resulting in misguiding reporting to management).

Whereas an automated surveying inspection tool will ensure consistent data is collected across your facilities.

How Kykloud Addresses Building Readiness

Kykloud surveys are designed to elevate  a building’s operational readiness after full or partial building shutdowns. With Kykloud, your organisation can create a standardised audit to establish the operational readiness of key building systems for one or multiple sites, and it can all be done from an iPad.

A non-technical auditor can go onsite to capture inspection data through easy-to-follow, guided workflows. Data and photos are collected, tagged, annotated and automatically associated with assets. Then, at the touch of a button, the collected survey data generate a standardised report.

Kykloud is scalable and able to handle complex real estate portfolios along with large data sets. Using a Kykloud survey to collect data requires little training. It increases inspection delivery time by 50% compared to spreadsheets and facilitates visibility across key stakeholders.

With Kykloud, you can:

  • Increase speed, accuracy and quality of audit data collection and reporting
  • Ensure photos are accurately collected, recorded and associated with assets
  • Enable offline data capture for far-off or remote locations
  • Gain visibility into the creation, issuing and competition status of assessments
