Granlund Manager is widely used within the hospital and healthcare sector in the Nordic countries, where over 50 hospitals are using it.
Uninterrupted operation in focus Maintenance in hospitals is critical. Smooth and working maintenance is a prerequisite for supporting the 24/7 operation of a hospital. The more automated the maintenance process is, the better and faster response is achieved, thus supporting the critical tasks to be carried out. The vast documentation options of the Granlund Manager facility management solution help maintenance staff to quickly locate and ﬁx faults. Scheduled preventive maintenance is necessary to ensure the uninterrupted operation of the technical systems and equipment of hospitals, such as mechanical and electrical systems. Granlund Manager allows preventive maintenance tasks to be automatically scheduled and assigned to different people or service providers. The system ensures that the tasks are carried out and that all technical systems and equipment are maintained accordingly. This minimises the amount of faults and lengthens the lifecycle of building assets.
Considerable energy savings Energy consumption in hospitals is one of the key factors in guaranteeing the efficient use of the premises. This is done without compromising patient safety. Granlund Manager helps maintenance and hospital management to improve energy efficiency by consolidating
data from different energy sources into easily understandable information. This information can then be used for monitoring and further developing energy-saving measures in hospitals, as well as for allocating costs by department in order to monitor actual costs and energy consumption in different departments. Granlund Manager has a proven track record of savings in energy consumption in the hospital and healthcare sector.

Creating ideal indoor conditions The conditions inside the hospital building must be as good as possible – whether we are talking about air quality or hospital hygiene. Therefore, constant monitoring is key. With Granlund Manager, hospitals can translate building automation data into property performance indicators. This enables one to reach ideal indoor conditions with optimised energy usage. The information can be easily viewed on lobby screens, the Internet or mobile devices. Granlund Manager is a great tool for showing people the impact they have on a building’s energy consumption and indoor conditions.
