Inaya Facilities Management rolled out the first stage of their new Mobile Solutions system at Ibn Battuta Mall and, in doing so, pioneered a new path for Facilities Management service delivery in Dubai. Founded in Dubai in 2010 by the Belhasa Group, Inaya continues to expand across the Gulf Region.

Facilities Management is a highly competitive market, especially here in Dubai. Companies are always looking for ways to distinguish itself from other service providers. They do this by deploying innovative solutions which are of direct benefit to the client as well as the end user.

In equipping their ground staff with the new Motorola TC55 touch computers Inaya’s Ibn Battuta team could now carry out their maintenance by arriving onsite and scanning the bar code of the equipment. Upon scanning the barcode, the technician immediately has the entire service record to hand for as well as access to current stock levels and the ability to place an order for the immediate delivery of that new part. Simultaneously, in having scanned the barcode, the technician sends a geostamp to the enterprise Computer Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) system, an irrefutable validation of the maintenance schedule and a real time update to the audit trail.
