As a Maintenance Manager, you know how important preventative maintenance is in keeping down costs. But as a Plymouth area town recently found out, it may be more costly than you think. With the repairs needed on their municipal buildings, the costs are in the millions.
Fortunately, they had a preventive maintenance software, but not before the repairs started piling up due to a lack of execution on their part.
Preventative maintenance is there for a reason as you well know. It's not just changing out an air conditioner filter or touching up some paint once in a while. These are important things as well but if you run a facility where buildings are your main concern, the things you have to have done to keep up with preventative maintenance can be overwhelming, especially if you have a lot of buildings to worry about.
Easy To Use
This type of software program allows you to input all of the maintenance tasks that need to be done so that it is scheduled out to the employee automatically. You simply put in the data that is needed and the software does the rest as far as keeping up with what needs to be done, when it needs it, who is doing it, and so on. The same thing happens after the work is done – you now have a record of who did the work, what time and date it was done, and any notes that are needed to ensure you have everything ready for running reports or showing the work to others.

That is why you need a program that helps you out and can make sure that the preventative maintenance is always kept up to date and done on a regular basis and proactive instead of having to worry about it after the fact and then catch up. Simply put, a CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) system makes your life as a Maintenance Manager much easier and allows you to not only keep up with all of your preventative maintenance but do so much more such as scheduling tasks or keeping up with your assets, and more.
