Integration of activities between two departments has its benefits and the biggest one is adherence to the confines of the capital account asset replacement budget. When the accounting department is able to plan for maintenance or replacement of large operational pieces of equipment on a predefined schedule, balancing the budget also helps to solidify the integrity of having a budget at all. The wall calendar is okay, but software accessible to all departments is much better.

Software can pinpoint the activities employees need to perform on a daily basis, what systems or equipment are the focus of each day and eliminates unnecessary down time for personnel. Steady maintenance preserves operational systems and can often extend the useful life of vital pieces of equipment. Plus, advance assignments for the day help to keep an optimal level of performance in the workplace.

Compliance Is Job One

Various facilities fall within the law and the structure and equipment maintenance are subject to certain statutes dictating maintenance. These statutes ensure health and safety protection for everyone using the premises. Certain reports must generate on a timetable for inspectors emanating from government offices who check the condition of the structure, facility use and safety factors.

Those “compliance” factors as well as upkeep, preventive services and any special attention to conditions affecting smooth operation will appear in reports that our software generates on-demand and ahead of schedule. Even the level of detail to reveal is under your own control and efficient use of schedules can prevent surprises from surfacing.
