Orchard House Nursing Home selects INVICTADesk for its Facilities Management

INVICTADesk helped the Orchard House Nursing Home, a privately run nursing home in West Midlands, United Kingdom, overcome a plethora of everyday challenges. While effectively managing their building assets, INVICTADesk ensured complete control of breakdown maintenances inside the campus.
Goals & Challenges
With a manual system of keeping a record of infrastructural issues, it was resulting in major delays for the nursing home in providing services to 31 residents with varying nursing needs. A lack of proper structure in processes, unavailability of a system to measure effectiveness and reliability of services, negatively affected organizational efficiency. With no Facilities Management in place, the workplace operations became difficult to manage.
With lack of comprehensive information, the current system lacked the capability of making smart decisions. The staff wasn’t tech-savvy either. A lack of budget and time to get their manpower trained and certified for Facilities Management also added to the existing operational inefficiencies.

After having considered various requirements and assessing the challenges, the Orchard House Nursing Home chose INVICTADesk for Facilities Management.
