CMMS software is a prized solution for properties.

It can help any proactive leader move toward a profitable maintenance operation.

But, knowing which systems are going to help you reduce operational waste and cut hindering costs can be tricky.

Agree?

Many maintenance “solutions” have flaws.

Yes, they’re software and tout their ability to improve efficiency for your operation.

But, it seems their perspective comes only from their understanding of maintenance operations.

These systems are antiquated and cumbersome and do not take into account the real needs of the customer.

One issue leads to another with their use – and the cumbersomeness catches up to your bottom line.

Vital activities and tasks that are essential to running a fluid operation start slipping through the cracks.

These missed maintenance initiatives cost you money, often lots of it too.

“What do we do,” is the question you’re back to asking yourself and your team.

You’d rather be able to quickly cut your maintenance costs and focus on increasing the profitability of your business.

Are we right?

Yes, we are!

We’re going to show you how a proactive CMMS can help you turn your maintenance operation and keep it a profit center.

Are you ready for Proactive Operations?

“Nowadays, if you're a teenager who's good at video games there's a lot more to be had than just a pot of virtual gold,” writes Aubri Juhasz in their recent NPR article entitled “As Esports Take Off, High School Leagues Get In The Game.”

“There's college scholarships, tournament money and high salary jobs,” Juhasz shares.

According to the article, “Today, more than 170 colleges and universities participate. And there's money on the table — more than $16 million in college scholarships. Naturally, high schools have followed suit.”

“This year, 17 states and the District of Columbia are offering formal esports teams,” the NPR piece continues.

Juhasz explains, “Kids perfect their skills alongside teammates with the help of a high school coach. They run drills, develop strategy, review game footage and compete against other teams across their state.”

“But most high schools don't house their esports teams under athletics. In Virginia, the league is considered an academic activity,” the article continues.

“Scooter Norton is a senior and captain of Washington-Liberty's Rocket League Team. He and his teammates Calvin Forinash and Matthew Goodwin have known one another since they were in kindergarten and have been playing Rocket League together for three years,” says Juhasz.

"When this opportunity came around, I don't think there was any hesitation from us about whether we would do it. It was just a matter of whether our parents would let us," Forinash says in the article.

“All three said their parents have at times resisted their desire to play video games,” explains Juhasz.

That sounds like a case of the status quo for properties.

Do you see it?

We’ve experienced this for years, with properties moving away from reactive operations to Proactive Operations.

They resist.

Have you resisted the undeniable value of employing Proactive Operations?

Stop resisting – let’s “get in the game!”

Proactive Operations has plenty of value to offer your organization, starting with the power to evolve and maximize performance.

You gain a superpower.

How long have you been running your operation?

Years?

Decades?

Would you say you’ve seen it all?

We bet you’ve seen a lot.

But, what about the issues or incidents you haven’t seen?

You’re probably saying to yourself: “What are they talking about?”

We’re talking about the things that have occurred under your watch – that you didn’t even know were happening.

The things that “slip through the cracks” without any warning or heads up.

The unfortunate news is that you couldn’t know what your team is missing.

Why?

You don’t know what you don’t know! And, we bet you’d agree with that.

Have you acknowledged this deficiency in your operation? What have you done to counter this big problem?

It’s got to be overwhelming – we can feel your anxiety and the ongoing stress. It has got to be crippling your ability to be a proactive leader.

You need a change, fast.

It’s time for you to step up your situational awareness, so nothing gets past you and your team.

Are you ready?

How are you managing the incidents on your property?

Incident management is critical when you have tens, hundreds, or thousands of people on your property at any given time.

Stuff happens.

And, you need to be able to manage it.

Do you have an incident management system (IMS) in place?

If so, how efficient and effective has it made your operation throughout its implementation period?

It’s essential to deploy a proactive software solution on your property, so we want to be sure you've got the best solution in place.

Today, we’re going to show you the many benefits of doing so.

But, we don't want you ever to forget that the most important reason is to keep your customers and staff safe at all times.

We’re confident you agree with that statement.

Agree?

So, are you ready to learn about the 18 benefits we want you to reap?

Let’s get started!

It takes time to train your staff.

But, time also poses a challenge – and inefficient processes bite into it.

You have staff that comes and goes, which makes training and staying on top of everyone’s responsibilities a struggle.

Everything changes daily.

Some of this headache comes from constant turnover.

Much of what you believe to be due to low performing employees.

The other time destroyer is seasonal and part-time staff training.

All of this leaves you overwhelmed.

You feel stuck and behind the eight ball.

Agree?

The effects eventually build, your property’s operation gets the brunt of it, and this all trickles down to customer service.

Do you see the long-term problem here?

You need a way to ensure that the staff walking your property – hired to keep it safe – are on top of their game.

They must know what they’re doing and be proactive in doing so.

But, you need the confidence that this is true. How do you get it?

That’s where a proactive guard tour system comes to the rescue.

Yes, modern features of a software solution help your team each day. Many of these features are fancy and reduce the time it takes to get the job done.

We get it, but you have to approach your software evaluation in a way that supports long-term value.

It’s more than simple features and benefits!

“Drivers who went to DMV offices Monday morning were likely hoping for a quick end to what can be a painfully slow process — but in offices around the U.S., that process ground to a halt for roughly four hours, due to a widespread network problem,” writes Bill Chappell in their recent NPR article entitled “U.S. Driver's License Network Goes Down, Slowing DMV Offices Across The Nation.”

"The network that connects motor vehicle agencies across the United States to each other and to various verification service’ began experiencing an outage at 10 a.m. ET,” says Claire Jeffrey, communications manager for the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, according to Chappell.

“The issue wasn't resolved until 2 p.m., Jeffrey says. In the meantime, many driver's license and vehicle registration offices were unable to use a key database search tool that lets them verify information,” writes Chappell.

The article continues, “Crucially, the states were blocked from using the PDPS, which ‘contains information on individuals whose privilege to operate a motor vehicle has been revoked, suspended, canceled or denied or who have been convicted of serious traffic-related offenses,’ according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, or NHTSA.”

“In addition to those services, the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles said the network outage left it unable to verify U.S. passports,” according to the NPR piece.

Patience is a virtue that would be tested in this case.

Agree?

We cannot imagine your operation having to react to a situation like this.

You know, one that slows down your property.

Can you?

You might already be experiencing slowdowns throughout your operation.

But is it fixable?

Do you think you’re running a reactive operation?

That might be your slowdown.

Proactive Operations is your solution.
