Cloudfm operates a national network of skilled tradespeople covering everything from HVAC to roofing, electricians, builders and plumbers. The Marketplace of trusted local partners helps customers reduce environmental impact and increase efficiency through shorter journey times.
Cloudfm is rolling out a new AI-powered monitoring platform. The technology, called Mindsett, monitors energy waste and suggests ways to reduce consumption to reduce costs and environmental impacts.
The company pioneered the use of technology in facilities management with its Freedom platform, which created real-time visibility of every element of the maintenance process. The data-led approach increased efficiency and was deployed for high street brands ranging from Azzurri Group to Tui.
When combined, Freedom and Mindsett give Cloudfm’s clients complete visibility across their estates and enable supply chain partners to share in that visibility. The approach means tradespeople arrive at jobs better prepared for a first-time fix, with full stock and appropriate skills. Apps are used to record progress, compliance and reduce the burden of paperwork.
