Unless you're the manager of your own maintenance department, you have to deal with the people higher up than you. For instance, if you run the maintenance facility for a Homeowner's Association then it's the board members you answer to and especially the Board President. 


Or if you run an assembly line then you most likely have a boss or the owner of the company.

While you may keep everything up to par during the rest of the year, everyone knows that when the owners are in town then things have to look a certain way. One way to make everything easier is to use work management software to plan your work orders. There are a number of reasons for this:


Fewer Employees in the Office

When you use a traditional means of setting up work orders, you have employees coming in and out of the office. With a CMMS, everything can be done remotely and your employees get their work orders immediately with the app. The communication if seamless and the owners will see a more well-run business with less downtime and fewer employees in the office.

Preventative Maintenance

By using CMMS throughout the year, preventative maintenance can be scheduled far in advance so that you are always on top of it. This ensures that when the owners do come in for a visit that everything is well-maintained and it shows off your skills as a maintenance manager who knows what you're doing.

Work Order Reports

With a Computerized Maintenance Management System in place, reports are easy to run so it only takes a moment to find what you need. This is especially helpful when you need to show data on a certain work order for management or to highlight any areas that need special attention during a meeting with the owners.

Whether you have management or owners come in on a regular basis or if you work with them daily, having a system in place that allows you more control over work orders, preventative maintenance, and all of your facility's day to day operations. Your managers will see a well-oiled machine when it comes to your facility and you'll have an easier time doing your job.
