The judges have made their final decisions for this year’s Facilities Management Awards hosted by BUILD Magazine, and we are delighted to announce that Locale has been successful for the second year in a row, winning Best FM Solutions Specialists – South England.

When asked by the judges why he believes that Locale is the best possible option for clients, Guy Windsor Lewis, CEO and Founder commented:

“We’re trusted, respected, knowledgeable, agile, cost effective and we offer first-class customer service. He went on to add: “with clients that include 4 out of 5 of the leading management agents; Locale’s cutting edge portals are used by some of the most iconic, high profile developments and management companies in Europe and are always looking to innovate and improve our offering to our clients. We are currently working on projects with a practical completion date of 2040! Locale work closely with clients to find out what their needs are and offer solutions as these evolve. For instance, having recognised that there was a need for a system that could streamline and simplify operations for multiple properties, earlier this year we launched a unique solution that allows managers to manage multiple properties in real-time. We are also launching a specific product solution for residential associations as well as an app. Other technologies and partnerships that we are excited to be working with are Artificial Intelligence, key and asset tracking, sensors and facial recognition”

Scott Craig, Head of Client Services added:

“We are a small, fun and friendly company – our staff are driven and passionate about what we do.  Management are really supportive and reward individuals with days out, attendance to key industry events as well as incentives, rewards (such as Employee of the Month/Employee of the Quarter) and frequent social events. It’s a great place to work!”
