If you've already heard of CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software), you're already aware of the value it can bring to your maintenance department. From work orders and preventative maintenance capabilities to document storage and asset tracking, there's no doubt CMMS can dramatically improve facility maintenance.
The ability to access and oversee documents via smartphone is essential for a maintenance department. This is because the age-old practice of managing your documents strictly by PC is no longer efficient - it's time-consuming, expensive and downright frustrating. Gone are the days of being anchored to your computer - constantly logging, filing and searching through thousands of files containing everything from work orders to training guides. Instead, most departments are trading in their desktop computers in favour of managing their documents through mobile Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS).
Happy New Year to all our great customers! To celebrate the arrival of 2019, we wanted to stop by with an update…and a little gift! Scroll down to take advantage of any (or all!) of the free safety awareness posters we made just for you, and see what you can expect from Maintenance Care in the months ahead.
U.S. national parks including the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park and the Great Smoky Mountains (among several hundreds of others), are in a state of gross deterioration. Also in dire need of maintenance are several of the nation's most famed monuments; the seawall protecting the Statue of Liberty is crumbling and a net hangs from the ceiling of the Jefferson Memorial (to keep visitors from getting hit on the head by pieces of crumbling limestone), for instance. In fact, all of these landmarks are so neglected it will cost the American government nearly 12 billion dollars to complete all the outstanding repairs! Why? A maintenance backlog!
The team at Maintenance Care is proud to announce the addition of Virtual Reality (VR) 3D Spaces to our maintenance management system. With this new technology, we can help our clients to revolutionize the way they manage their assets, their maintenance, and their entire facility. With three unique packages (plus one add-on) to offer, we can help with everything from asset tracking, to facility management, to marketing, and more.
Assets are the lifeblood of your facility maintenance department and they’re also one of, if not the, largest expense you have. So when your assets break or quit working, you’re faced with the decision of whether to repair them or replace them. It’s important to make the right decision because it can have a large impact on your costs. Knowing how to decide which is best for your operations will help control downtime and unexpected costs.
You’ve been asking for inventory management software – and we listened! At Maintenance Care, we’re dedicated to bringing our CMMS users the best possible value. We’re always listening to our users to understand exactly what they want and need their maintenance software to do. Lately, we’ve seen a lot of users looking for best practices for spare parts inventory management so we decided to create one of our largest add-ons to our maintenance software ever: Parts and Inventory Management.
If there's one piece of equipment we can pretty much guarantee your facility hasn't used since last winter it's your snowblower. With November here, the snow could start falling at any time (if it hasn't already in some areas), which means your snowblower's time to shine could be coming soon.
