FF&E and OS&E are structured similarly but serve two radically different purposes.
FF&E – Stands for furniture, fixtures, and equipment. This is a schedule of the non-permanent items found inside a building.
OS&E – Stands for operating supplies, and equipment. These are all your replenishable items that don’t need installation like napkins, linens, towels, as well as other things that you need to keep track of on daily basis.
However, something that FF&E and OS&E have in common is that they both function as a schedule of items that are vital to the standard operations of those in the hospitality, healthcare, education, and restaurant industry. That’s why it’s crucial that these things be specified and procured properly and efficiently.
Fohlio makes that possible. Here’s how to efficiently specify and procure your OS&E and FF&E:
1. Fohlio as a Centralized Platform
A centralized platform means having all of the data you need in one place. You can do both specification AND procurement with Fohlio. Switch between workflows or give different levels of access to your employees depending on what part of the process they are working on.
2. Customizable Templates for Specifying your OS&E and FF&E
Access both OS&E and FF&E in one dashboard. Have a template ready for your OS&E and FF&E. Dedicate a template for them separately, that way, you won’t confuse one with the other. This way, you won’t have to consume time reorganizing your data. It also allows you to create different formats (depending on what you need) for OS&E and FF&E.
Having all of your vendors in one place makes it easy for you to know who to order particular products from. This is also a good way to build a list of alternate contacts who you can buy the same supplies in case of mishaps
