The New fm24 Director Imran Akram said: “Technology and our people will be critical in the growth of the helpdesk service and significant progress has been made in terms of establishing a global telephony solution as well as the development of the web-based computer aided facilities management (CAFM) system, which has been configured to cover multiple time-zones and language sets.”

“With our global focus, we are able to drive efficiency and strengthening business continuity. As the managed service part of the business grows so does the helpdesk and I am also keen to expand the independent helpdesk service we offer with a focus on FM, property management & construction.”

We are also very pleased to welcome Sasha Memedovic to fm24.”
