We noticed last week that the Tomorrow’s FM Awards are back underway and the line of finalists have been selected. It got us thinking about when we were nominated as finalists back in 2018, a very prestigious nomination indeed. Coinadrink is proud to deliver cutting edge vending products and services to the Facilities Management industry and whilst we chose not to enter this year, we’re always willing to show our support to everything that’s great about the industry.
What are the Tomorrow’s FM Awards?
It’s probably best to explain what the Facilities Management industry is first and foremost. FM is a professional management discipline focused upon the efficient and effective delivery of support services for the organisations that it serves. This may include services to enhance a workplace, such as workplace refreshments or better equipment to help employees get on with their role.
The Tomorrow’s FM Awards is a collection of everything that is great about the Facilities Management Industry. Now in its eighth year, the FM industry has once again had no trouble picking a few standout candidates for the FM Awards 2019. The industry hasn’t been without its challenges over the past 12 months, most notably thanks to the Carillion collapse in January 2018, but it’s came through even stronger than before.
48 finalists will now battle it out to be crowned the winner.
We were finalists in 2018!
Or, rather, our branch division Express Refreshments was, for the FM Awards 2018. The foundations of our Micro Market stem around the wellbeing and productivity of the workforce so we saw a golden opportunity to put it forward as an entry. And as it turned out, we were very successful.
The judges saw the appeal of a self-service convenience store for the workplace, laden with extensive refreshments, including healthier items, for the working day and beyond. The fact that we can tie the Micro Market into a break out area was particularly favourable, as it promotes a genuine break time and staff engagement.
Although we didn’t win in the FM Awards 2018, it was a fantastic honour to be nominated as a finalist.
2019’s standout entries.
Personally, I was quite interested to read about Levitate Aerial, a drone deploy application that utilises artificial intelligence to identify and measure different roof and edge types, including surface areas, valleys, and ridges. This enables the user to quickly deliver the data that is essential to things such as roof repairs, assessments and insurance claims. Could this be of interest to you?
Elsewhere, Renoo, responsible for infrared pothole repair services, is quite an interesting service, as is ERA Lockdown, who are home security specialists. I’ll attach the virtual magazine, so you can get an idea yourself as to some of the standouts. Voting will be carried out by you, the reader, so it’s a good opportunity to know exactly what you are voting for.
On behalf of everyone at Coinadrink Limited, we wish the finalists the very best of luck!
