Facilities services organisation Incentive FM Group has secured a three-year contract with consumer financial services firm Dollar UK.
The company will provide a full range of facilities management and maintenance services across Dollar UK's corporate offices and high street stores.
Incentive FM's remit will comprise of property and estate management and building maintenance covering in excess of 250 branches of The Money Shop and Suttons & Robertsons, both Dollar UK brands, as well as two corporate offices in Nottingham and another in Bicester. Incentive FM will also provide dedicated reception services at the three premises.
Dollar UK had previously managed its large portfolio of stores and office buildings internally, however, following a strategic review of its global property management services it identified Incentive FM as an outsourcing partner, enabling Dollar UK to concentrate on its core business of providing consumer finance while benefiting from "an enhanced service and improved efficiencies through self-delivery and procurement leverage".
Stuart Howard, CEO at Dollar UK, said: "This is a strategic decision made by the board to ensure we can run our offices and estate under expert management via a client company that fits well with our ethos and values. This allows us to concentrate on our central business functions."
