HFC and our partners were at this year’s HefmA Conference in Blackpool. This year’s theme was “Better, Brighter, Together” and featured a wide-range of speakers covering a diverse range topics tackling the many and varied challenges faced by Estates and Facilities Management professionals in healthcare today.

HFC was well-represented this year with several of our new and long-standing partner organisations sharing our stand. There was interest across the range of products we were showcasing at the event:

Apollo-FM – Preferential rate for HFC Members

With delegates visiting our stand specifically to speak to Premier Software and view Apollo-FM it is clear that its competitive pricing policy, licence-free mobile solution and inclusive support, development and updates are gaining the attention of Trust representatives.

There are many more features and reasons why Apollo-FM users prefer the software to other systems on the market - read the case study to find out why here. More information is available here where you can also download the Apollo-FM product information sheet.

Premises Assurance Consultancy – Preferential rate for HFC Members

We were joined at this conference by the Birch Foundation who, in association with academics at University of Warwick, has developed a 5 day overview of the Premises Assurance for NHS Trusts. Consisting of an overview day and 8 half day workshops looking at each domain in detail, Birch will provide you with all the knowledge you need to complete the process, helping you along the way and leaving you with a review of where you are and what you need to do next. The HefmA Conference enabled us to introduce Birch to many NHS Trust representatives and to make connections with other healthcare organisations who play a part in the process, including DH.

Client Managed Fire Risk Assessment – Preferential rate for HFC Members

Developed by Nulogic Fire and brought into the healthcare sector by HFC, our Client Managed Fire Risk Assessment product received a lot of interest from delegates. Having delivered several software demos and made several more valuable contacts it is clear that there is demand for reliable and proven a product of this type amongst our NHS colleagues.
