Your maintenance equipment is one of your biggest investments if not the biggest investment. This is why protecting your assets is so important whether it's theft, the elements, or simply knowing when to repair and when to replace your equipment.
Storing your equipment properly is one of the most important factors in protecting your assets. If you have a warehouse then make sure that the equipment is protected from theft by knowing who and when the warehouse is used and keep it locked otherwise. Those items that are stored indoors should be still maintained correctly even though these items are out of the elements. Being put away right and being cleaned up beforehand (along with preventative maintenance) is imperative. If your equipment is kept outdoors, be sure that it is covered properly if possible and kept out of the sun, rain, and snow. If this is not feasible at your facility, make sure that the equipment is checked out on a regular basis to ensure proper working order.
Repair vs Replacement
One thing that can put a strain on any budget is having to repair equipment or make replacements. However, it is important to know which one to choose. With the asset tracking area of the CMMS through Maintenance Care, you can keep all of your asset details in one convenient, easy to navigate location. Maintain records on all essential profile information including make, model, serial number and much more. You can profile your equipment and access each item's information using our mobile app for your convenience.
Preventative maintenance is of the utmost importance because this is what keeps your equipment running like it should. Nine times out of ten, a properly maintained piece of equipment will run much smoother and last longer than one that is ignored.
