Running any type of facility requires keeping everything maintained and working yet profitability is another concern that is just as important. Cutting costs isn't always the answer but there are a few ways of helping ensure that you are profitable and working smarter instead of harder.
Intelligent Work Orders
Computerized Maintenance Management Software helps you work smarter by having all of the information needed to complete a work task. This includes your employees having the right parts and knowing exactly what it is that they need to do. You won't have to worry that a work order is lost or that it doesn't have the right data because the work order is always there when it is needed since it is kept in the Cloud. The work orders will have the room or equipment being services, the part or manufacturer information, scheduling, and more. Instead of a note reading, “HVAC filter in room 207” for example, the intelligent work order will have the size of the filter, when it was last changed, and any other information critical to a job done right and in a timely manner.
Expenses are Monitored
One way to always know where your expenses are going is with proper monitoring and since data is collected in real time, you are always on top of what is going on, including when equipment may need replacing or repairing.
Inventory waste is a huge expense in any facility and one way to cut down on waste is with inventory control. With a Computerized Maintenance Management Software program, you can keep up with inventory more easily and know exactly what is needed to run your maintenance facility without having extra or losing track of supplies. It even allows you to be predictive on whether a piece of machinery or large equipment should be replaced or repaired.
