Etisalat Facilities Management (eFM), a subsidiary of Etisalat Service Holdings, has signed an agreement with eSolutions, which is a regional platinum partner of IBM, to jointly offer smart integrated FM solutions. eFM says it hopes to achieve cost savings, operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. The MoU was signed between Ali Hassan Harmoodi, general manager, Etisalat Facilities Management; and Gaby Matar, group managing partner, eSolutions, on the sidelines of the FM Expo held from 23rd to 25th September at the Dubai World Trade Center. Through this partnership eSolutions will be able to enhance its operations by utilising IBM cloud-based solutions in areas of FM, space management and workforce management while optimising related operational expenses. Harmoodi said: “The FM industry is going through a major transformation, which is reshaping its requirements and priorities, mainly driven by the technology advancement and the tendency to outsource the FM functions to an integrated facility management provider. eFM was established in 2007 as an independent company offering integrated, state-ofthe-art and sustainable services to the market in the UAE and across the region.
