Our award-winning corrective maintenance solution allows work order requests to be submitted from anywhere, reducing the number of emails, phone calls and hallway requests that bog down your team. Over the years, we’ve found that the schools with the most successful maintenance operations allow anyone to submit work requests, helping to reduce the double-entry by maintenance staff and resulting in 30 minutes saved per work order.
You can send productivity into overdrive by automatically routing, prioritizing and ranking work order requests, in real-time, by project, location, and budget. With insight and reporting features at your fingertips, you can protect your staff from burnout by balancing trouble ticket allocation amongst technicians.
By streamlining your request process and improving time-to-completion also fortifies your department’s relationship with teachers and other stakeholders. With increased confidence in your staff, there are more eyes on maintenance issues, allowing your department to catch and address problems earlier.
Proper preventive maintenance is vital to the health, safety, and financial future of your institution, as emergency work costs eight times more than performing proper PM. In addition, it provides capital budget relief by extending the life of your equipment by 25% and saving 2-3% on your annual energy bills.
We work with schools across the globe, and those with the most stellar operations have this in common: PM makes up more than 30% of their work load. Our preventive maintenance solution allows you to schedule recurring maintenance and PM tasks, with detailed steps and attached equipment manuals, ensuring you identify problems before they become emergencies.
