How do you think your 2018 went?

Do you feel good about the year?

We bet you’re ready to take on 2019 – that’s how proactive leaders are.

But, you might be struggling to achieve a certain level of performance.

Something doesn’t feel right.

Since you’re reading this article, it might have something to do with how many tools you’re using to manage your operation.

Are we close?

You know, you’re using a texting system from one provider and a CMMS from another.

Everything “works,” but not without many communication breakdowns.

No one is on the same page across personnel.

Your operational functions are limited in their success – everyone is getting by.

But, we believe you can achieve maximum performance.

We know you want to employ Proactive Operations correctly.

That’s why you’ve got to read this article.

It’s time to bring your operation together and reinforce your pursuit of perfection.

Welcome to the first week of 2019.

You want to capitalize on this fresh start.

Your operation is still running, and your team is still performing.

Everything is OK.

But what are you going to do to make it even better?

Do you have any New Year’s resolutions for your operation?

Do you have any plans to take your operation to the next level?

We’ve got something you can do.

How about making 2019 the year you maximize the performance of your property’s operation?

We mean, really maximize your performance.

You’ve got 12 twelve months ahead of you, let’s make them productive.

What do you say?

Let’s do this.

Keep reading; we’re going to show you how to employ the #1 methodology operations are transitioning to in 2019.

It’s called Proactive Operations, and it’s how you maximize your performance this year.

2019 is fast approaching.

You need to find out how ‘fast’ your team performed this year.

That way, you can figure out what improvements or changes are needed for the upcoming year.

So, what does your operation look like?

Are you responding to incidents efficiently? Do you have the right amount of resources available? How are your staffing levels? Is it time to invest in a unified solution?

You need to answer these questions, but how?

We’ll save you the guesswork.

You need to use analytics, which means you need the ability to capture data that results in purposeful analytics.

Do you have Proactive Operations in place? Are you in a position to rely on your data? Can you trust it?

You need to close out 2018 and get ready for 2019. Today is a great day to start.

But, the only way to do it successfully is by looking at your numbers.

You must take a close look at how your operation performed this year, so you can be proactive in making the best adjustments for the New Year.

Now is the time to resolve any issues.

Address whether the integrity of your data is at the level it needs to be before you’re already in the first quarter of 2019.

Keep reading; here’s what you’ll need to do.

It’s Christmas morning.

And we’re thinking about the year ahead.

Most importantly, we’re thinking about what we’d like to see you achieve in 2019.

You’re a great leader.

You’re always working hard to run your property the best you can.

But you always feel like you hit too many bottlenecks when trying to get work done.

Since you run the entire operation, you have a lot of moving parts to keep your eyes on day to day.

This responsibility makes it difficult to ensure nothing slips through the cracks.

Your security team uses software for their guard tours.

Public safety uses another system.

You can’t remember the name.

Not to mention, your maintenance team requires your team to write up a work order and then forward it to them.

Then, they enter the work order into their CMMS.

Nothing in your operation is unified.


We counted three different systems right there.

Each different system sends you a separate report, formatted a different way, and each has their faults that you must overcome each week to assess the information.

How is this efficient in any way? It’s not.

You’re using too many tools to run your property.

This strategy is dangerous because it leads to significant inefficiencies that affect your customers, bottom line, and your job.

But the good news is you can change the course in 2019.

You can control the effectiveness of your operation.

You no longer need multiple tools.

You need a unified solution.

That’s what we want YOU to have this Christmas morning…

“A crew of engineers in the middle of the ocean will try to fix a device that was intended to clean the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where an estimated 1.8 trillion pieces of plastic have coalesced into a field of debris twice the size of Texas.,” writes Francesca Paris in their recent NPR article entitled “Creator Of Floating Garbage Collector Struggling To Capture Plastic In Pacific.”

According to the article, “The garbage catcher has been floating in the Pacific since its highly anticipated launch out of San Francisco in September, but it has yet to produce the results anticipated.”

“Its inventor, 24-year-old Boyan Slat, told The Associated Press the solar-powered barrier hasn't collected any loads of trash because it's moving more slowly than the plastic it's trying to capture,” explains Paris.

"Which of course you don't want, because then you have a chance of losing the plastic again,’ the Dutch innovator said in a video. ‘[We're] trying to speed up the system just enough so that it will always constantly go faster than the plastic, which is what we need."

Paris shares that “Slat and his team said they had anticipated running into issues like this one.”

"What we're trying to do has never been done before. So, of course we were expecting to still need to fix a few things before it becomes fully operational," Slat said in the piece.

We could not relate to Slat and his team anymore.

This experience something we regularly face as we help proactive leaders (like you) strive towards maximum performance.

Are you struggling to achieve maximum performance throughout your property operation?

Don’t fret; we’ve got you covered.

This situation reads Proactive Operations all over it.

And we can help!

Preventive maintenance software eliminates the need for technicians to spend their days waiting around for equipment to stop working.

Your maintenance department is the core of your organization.

Your property can crumble without it.

Most organizations continue to view their property maintenance department as a cost center.

Low efficiency, unmanaged resource allocation, and defective equipment can lead to money lost.

We’ve noticed many leaders are missing what it means to take control of their property maintenance.

Are you?

Using preventive maintenance software can move a maintenance department from a cost center to a profit center.

Implementing a CMMS with preventative maintenance functionality allows for disciplined planning and scheduling practices.
