VIP Focus: A Win-Win Partnership: Reduce Costs and Improve Quality

DashBoard, June 29, 2016

School districts nationwide are facing budget dilemmas that are reaching crisis levels, forcing leaders to choose which much-needed programs or teacher positions to eliminate. A partnership with a building services provider can help resolve these crises without having to make those cuts. In fact, a building services provider saves its partners an average of 25% versus in-house services.

Outsourcing can be an effective way to save not just money, but time and resources. Outsourcing results in more available funds that can be put back toward your school for new programs, extracurricular activities, building renovations, etc. Outsourcing gives you more time to focus on what is most important—your students and their education.

Because many providers focus on the needs of the schools and their students and make quality the priority, outsourcing has become a go-to resource for comprehensive custodial, grounds and facility operations and maintenance services. With customized solutions tailored to each client’s specific needs, your building services provider not only reduces cost and administrative burden but improves the quality of the facilities and grounds through ongoing training, inspections and process adjustments.

GCA, America’s Premier Facilities Management Company’s 98+% client retention rate is witness to their quality and effectiveness. One satisfied client, the superintendent of a major metropolitan school district, says it perfectly, “GCA has proven to be a great partner to our school system. Not only have they saved us a significant amount of money that is funneled into the classroom, but GCA staffers are quick to answer any calls or requests for service.”
