Mobile Maintenance Solution | SchoolDude

Facilities often require maintenance at the most inopportune times: during budget cuts and layoffs, when other (more pressing) issues arise, or while your facilities manager is on vacation. No matter the circumstances, however, maintenance work often cannot wait. To run safely and efficiently, that leaky roof needs patching. That malfunctioning boiler needs repairing. And those fluorescent tubes need replacing. Most of all, they need it now.

Up until now, mobile maintenance referred mainly to auto, public transit, and construction equipment. Since the onset of the digital age, however, mobile maintenance has evolved into something much different.

SchoolDude, an industry leader in education asset management, saw an opportunity in 1999 to help improve the way schools operate with an evolved vision of mobile maintenance. Since then, SchoolDude has developed a comprehensive suite of solutions to help streamline the maintenance process of educational institutions of all sizes and types. As schools all over the country are facing the challenge of higher expectations and lower budgets, it is becoming harder for them to support student learning without the help of maintenance technology.

When you think about school expenses, what comes to mind? School lunches? Classroom supplies? Teachers’ salaries? One expense that is often overlooked is maintenance costs. The median U.S. school district spends 9.19% of total district expenditures on maintenance and operations each year. While many schools are interested in improving operation efficiency, most schools need help to do so. If you are looking to adjust the efficiency in which your school completes maintenance tasks, SchoolDude’s mobile maintenance software is just the help you need.
