The Loy & Hutz Group was the first CAFM manufacturer to successfully certify all 17 criteria catalogs with its CAFM software wave Facilities. In 2020, the previous 15 criteria catalogs were joined by two new areas: Workplace Management and Contract Management. The CAFM solution from Loy & Hutz was able to meet both of the new areas and their audit criteria at the first attempt during the regular certification process.
Another first came in the execution of the certification itself: to minimize contacts in the Covid 19 crisis, the number of local participants was kept to a minimum. Thus, for the first time, participants on the Loy & Hutz and GEFMA sides were connected via video conference. The largely digital certification went smoothly and can be considered a success not only in terms of content but also in terms of organization.
The GEFMA (German Facility Management Association), founded in 1989, sees itself as the German network of decision-makers in facility management. With about 850 members, GEFMA represents the most important companies in the fields of system services, property management, consulting and financial services, IT services as well as commercial, technical and infrastructural services. The aim is to increase awareness and further development of facility management.
