In the past, warehouse inventory was performed using paperwork, a sign-out system, or some other rudimentary way to keep everything organized. However, this way of doing things allows items to become misplaced, lost, or even stolen.
With the use of technology, warehouse maintenance has never been easier.
For instance, tablets and hand held computers make it easier to track inventory and ensure that things are where they are supposed to be. These mobile tools are easily paired with a Facility Maintenance Software program from Maintenance Care. The benefits are vast such as:
Always being able to access inventory through a web browser
Keep up with make, model, year purchased, and more on all equipment and inventory
Find out when there are missing or misplaced items
Keep up with which employee has used an item and when it was used
Find out when an asset needs preventative maintenance or when it is best to replace the item due to too many repairs
Take notes on all entries of any kind
Utilize historical maintenance
It's no secret that technology is a part of doing business even if you like to do things the old fashioned way. With Maintenance Care, you will keep up with everything in your maintenance department much easier.
One of the top benefits of Facility Maintenance Software program is that you can do things remotely. Let's say you've left for the evening and you sat in traffic, still haven't had dinner, and you just want to sit back and relax with your favorite television show – but you've forgotten to schedule an important task that has to be done back at the maintenance department. As long as you have access to a web browser that is connected to the Internet, you can do everything from home. Now you don't have to worry about being tethered to the office and can take that weekend trip away and if you need to run reports or check in on what is going on at work, you can do it easily.
