We assign a dedicated project manager for your implementation who will drive all the requirement gathering and keep everyone on course for a go-live by the target date. This will be run via a join execution plan and project plan gantt chart.

The implementation process consists of 4 phases
Discovery and planning: together with FMC experts, we identify the best approach to implement FMClarity across your portfolio and devise a plan for smooth transition to the new system
Portfolio upload and configuration: FMC team sets up the account for you based on the data you provide
Personnel and external parties training: we provide a full range of in person, online, and offline trainings, as well as assistance during the whole implementation project
Go Live and Hypercare: based on your preference the system can be switched on all at once or in phases. After Go Live we provide prioritized support to make sure everything runs smoothly
The FMC team will help you verify your data and will perform the initial upload for you
If it looks like a too big of a task to roll out FMClarity across your whole portfolio in one hit we support also staged roll-out.

We believe that a per user model limits the effectiveness of a system as many staff are not engaged due to restricting the licences made available. In addition, there is a need to forecast how many licences are needed which is problematic at best.
We have unlimited users in the system and base our subscription model on the size and intensity of the facilities within your portfolio. This will allow you to have the confidence of a fixed budgeted cost for the subscription and a clear understanding of any costs associated with an expansion.
Additionally it will enable much greater engagement across the organisation as everyone is able to participate in the platform, effectively building a community.
