"The i-FM website is the best site in the FM industry for providing up-to-date information, news and views on our fast moving market. Not only does it appeal to individuals but, as a corporate, the site provides fantastic value. As a sponsor, ISS has received great exposure that no other site could provide in the FM marketplace - at an extremely low cost. I would recommend i-FM to all businesses within our industry that understand the need for quality marketing and exposure."
CEO, ISS UK
"I've been using i-FM since the day it launched in 1999. Over the years it has proven itself to be a reliable and independent source of FM news and market information. The regular Trends & Opportunities surveys and i-FM's periodic Audit of the UK FM Sector alone make it one of the best value for money sources of FM information available on the web."
Business Development Manager, Interserve
"We work in a highly competitive marketplace, but i-FM provides a significant business advantage that can - and does - make the difference.
Having worked at a senior level with a couple of the biggest corporate service providers over the years, all members of the BIFM and receiving their free news service. But each one recognised the value in paying for multi user licences to i-FM - quality information is worth paying for; its an investment that brings dividends."
Director, ICM Ltd
""How did you know that…you must have been in FM for years!”, one new member said to me, genuinely impressed with my in-depth knowledge and understanding of his organisation. “No," I replied. "I've only been in the job a few months - but I use i-FM."
Understanding the FM market and our members has been made simple by the i-FM site. All the industry information is easily available - reports, surveys, listings and detailed news on our members and many potential members - all just a site search away.
The FMA has a strong presence on the site, too, as the advertising raises our profile in the sector and helps bring in members. In fact, the information is so good, we bought a licence for all our members. It’s simply too great a commercial benefit for them not to have. I know there are other sites out there, but none is on a par with i-FM."
Chief Executive, Facilities Management Association
"Over the past 10 years I have watched i-FM grow into the most comprehensive, immediately accessible information site for all matters regarding the FM Industry.
I know that FMA members really utilise and appreciate their user licence which is part of the membership benefit package. Many members say the daily news shot is the first thing they access every morning."
Founder Secretary, Facilities Management Association
"I have used the i-FM job site for many years and I am always pleasantly surprised by the quality, volume and relevance of the response. Anyone looking for FM professionals should be advertising here. Almost every candidate that responds to my adverts is a potential placement, so this job board represents exceptional value for money for us and we will continue to advertise here in preference to other generalist job sites."
Director, Talent – FM
"I have been a regular user of the i-FM site for many years but, given the difficult economic conditions, I decided not to renew my subscription and to use FM World instead. However, the content is simply not as good. The news is not as comprehensive and I missed the editorial content and articles. In my business, I have to know what is happening in the FM market and I have realised that it's worth paying to get high quality, timely information."
Director, GF – Associates
"I find it increasingly difficult to keep up with developments, particularly with frequent international travel. i-FM keeps me in touch with events as they happen, with clear email headline alerts and instant connections via the internet to the important news stories of the day."
