If you run a building or estate you’ll likely have users. You probably won’t refer to them as users - depending on your particular type of building you may call them residents, occupiers, staff, customers or tenants.
Some of your users might be very short term: if you run a shopping centre, a performing arts venue or something similar you may have users who hire some or all of your space and these users may only be there a couple of weeks, a few days or even just a single morning, afternoon or evening.
And if you are a hotel you may have overnight guests, but you may also have event spaces that you rent out for meetings, conferences, weddings and parties etc.
Whoever is using your space the chances are they are going to have operational questions
These questions will vary depending on the type of building you are, but some examples may include:
- What time is the building open?
- How do I report an issue I'm having?
- When is the rubbish collected?
- How do I get a security pass?
- What policies do I need to follow for my event?
- What are the dimensions of your event space?
- What technical facilities are available for playing back music?
- Can my suppliers park on site?
- How are deliveries to the site managed?
You may need to collect certain information from your users too. For example:
- Their names and contact details
- Billing information
- Details of things they want to order or arrange (and optionally pay for) eg a building key, catering requests, further details of their event or special instructions
- Health & Safety information
- Proof of insurance details and confirmation they will comply with your policies
- Details of third party contractors working on their events
- Maintenance requests
- Lost property reports
- Post visit/event survey information
