Concerto takes to the road for the 2017 User Group Networking Events this month.
Following on from last year’s success, Concerto, along with staff from parent company Bellrock FM, will be running 3 events across the UK in London, Manchester and Scotland.
Guest speakers will include Lesley McKaskie and Eamon Kavanagh from SFG20, who will be discussing the SFG20 library of maintenance specifications for building engineering services.
Developed and maintained by the BESA – Building Engineering Services Association and originally launched in 1990, the web based SFG20 Library of maintenance specifications for the building services sector is now recognised as the industry standard for maintenance specifications and has a growing Library of over 800 schedules. Delegates will also have the opportunity to view a demonstration of how the library works via the Concerto CAFM / Asset Management Solution which is in the process of becoming fully SFG20 compliant.
“As a technology company that always stays 2 steps ahead, we have ensured our product becomes SFG20 compliant to enable our FM clients to stay compliant with the industry standard for maintenance in the most efficient way possible – saving time, energy and money.”
James Heysmond, Business Development Director, Concerto
Delegates at the 3 events, which are now full, will have the opportunity to discuss latest projects and exchange case studies. Other areas for discussion include major new features, technology updates and future technology road maps.
“We are really looking forward to hosting these events, It is always a pleasure to meet up with our values customers and share the latest of what is happening in Concerto and within the industry”.
Managing Director, Concerto
On August 29th 2016 Concerto Support Services Limited became part of the Bellrock Group. Bellrock is one of the UKs leading Facilities Management (FM) and Property Management (PM) businesses. Established in 2000 (as SGP) and backed by Lyceum Capital since 2013 their vision is to continue to provide their clients with market leading, technology driven, FM and Property Management services.
Bellrock has sought to differentiate from their competitors by offering a technology driven range of FM and PM services. Increasing market interest and client demand led to the need for a genuinely integrated suite of software solutions that clients could use across their estate.
Concerto have developed their offering to provide the exact fit for this requirement and the potential for clients and prospects of each business to access a broader range of services.
Concerto Support services will continue to trade in its own name and use its existing office in Frodsham.
Concerto Scottish Networking Day
Our Scottish networking day yesterday marked the end of our User Group meetings for 2016.
Everyone enjoyed a relaxed but productive day at the Golden Lion Hotel in Stirling, spent looking at current and future developments in the Concerto solution along with sharing experiences and valuable ideas for future projects and developments.
My assessment of our networking day is that Concerto via on-line software have
demonstrated improved module functionality and software performance for Asset, Estates
Maintenance and Project Management software modules that are efficient, lean and flexible
Senior Project Manager, Renfrewshire Council
We are looking forward to another round of Networking days in 2017.
The Concerto User Group Networking events took in London and Manchester last week. The response to the events was fantastic with some excellent feedback from our clients.
These events have provided users with the opportunity to discuss new projects, features and recent updates and receive a step through the latest release notes and advanced setting in the system.
In collaboration with some clients, we also presented informative case studies based on recent projects. This allowed our users to share insight into how the Concerto system in being used in other organisations.
The day was finished off with a discussion about future plans for the system with the chance for us to listen to our client’s ideas and feedback. This valuable input is always considered and incorporated into the future development of the software.
We are looking forward to our final 2016 national networking event in Stirling, Scotland on Tuesday!
