Today we bring you our fifth post in a six part series of key challenges identified in a nationwide facility management survey.
It’s a common theme: too much stuff, not enough staff. Your IT department has been saying it for a while now, but this problem troubles the facilities and maintenance staff as well.
In recent years, the deployment and use of technology in schools, districts, colleges and universities has increased at an astronomical rate. The greater density of technology has also impacted the facilities and maintenance department. When combined with tight budgets, it becomes critical to find ways of minimizing the costs incurred for supporting increased technology density.
A web-based Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) can help you manage the impact of this increased technology use. Survey respondents indicated that certain CMMS products can provide the tools you need, but there are often significant differences in the extent of their capabilities.
To determine whether a vendor can help you meet the demands created by increased technology density, there are specific capabilities to look for. With them, a CMMS can help you meet the challenges posed by the ever-growing amount of technology on today’s college and university campuses and in K-12 school districts. Learn about these capabilities in the articles below.
