Bringing Ease to Managing Facilities

A computerized maintenance management program may be the solution.
University Business, Feb 2008

In facilities management, there are several assets, requests, and tasks to track and manage every day. To stay on task, connect with management, and get things done efficiently and effectively across multiple locations, consider looking into a computerized maintenance management program. A computerized maintenance management program is a comprehensive system for total facility, property, maintenance, and grounds management where you can link every person, place, and thing together in one centralized network for real-time collaboration.

There are many mission-critical tasks to complete in order to manage the many assets (air conditioners, boilers, HVAC systems, computers, etc.) at each campus or location. Some of these tasks include completing impulsive work orders and inspections. Keeping up with this extensive workload, in addition to general facilities maintenance of grounds, classrooms, libraries, student housing, etc., requires scheduling, planning, and communication for effective and efficient tasks completion.

To help manage facilities, perhaps you should look into a web-based maintenance management solution to increase your efficiency. A computerized maintenance management program allows the link together all of the school locations, buildings, managers, employees, faculty, students (if applicable), vendors, and suppliers into one centralized network for workflow collaboration.

<em>Some of the tasks that can be completed include:</em>

Tracking maintenance costs and performance

Increasing productivity

Stopping costly revenue leaks caused by asset failure

Protecting assets with automatic PM items

Streamlining inventory

Lowering the total cost of maintenance

By using a web-based software, you can link together and manage administrative buildings, libraries, classrooms, student housing (dormitories), modular buildings, grounds, athletic departments/gymnasiums, auditoriums, fleets (busses, vans, etc.), campus medical facilities, faculty centers, and much more. Some of the advantages of a computerized maintenance management program include:

100 percent web-based (no software installation required)

Access any time and any where you have internet access

Electronic work order notifications (via email)

Complete history (critical data through multiple views)

Preventive maintenance autopilots

Total Rules-Based Permission Levels.
