The right CMMS can help you reduce operational and equipment downtime.

Since your maintenance department is the foundation for your property, viewing it as a cost center is no longer an option.

Lackluster employees, incomplete procedures, and overall low efficiency can lead to more time spent working on the equipment than it is working.

What’s the effect of this?

The scariest result of all is lost dollars – lots of them!

We’ve realized downtime is a disastrous consequence for managers.

Introducing preventative maintenance software to your maintenance team allows for your well-thought-out plans to be put into action.

11 different incident types…

That require personnel from four different specialties just so happened to occur at the same time.

This situation is unheard of for your property – especially a low activity day like this one.

It doesn’t get better either.

You’re short staffed.

How do you manage this?

Don’t fray.

We’ve got you covered.

Let’s set the scene for you.

It’s now the busiest time of year at your property.

The stress level is up, and the projects don’t seem to end.

Even when you get caught up, the next day you feel behind all over again.

Today you walk in the office already prepared for a hectic day.

Then, to fuel the fire you notice a voicemail from your property’s legal counsel.

They’re notifying you that a slip-and-fall case has been filed against your property.

And the incident occurred three years ago.

You’re at a loss for words.

You’re not sure what to do at this point and start running through a series of questions in your head.

Who documented the incident?

Do you remember?

Do they work here anymore?

Where's it filed?

Is it filed?

Is it legible?

You may or may not even have the answers.

Take some pressure off you and your team.

CMMS can help identify and fix equipment defects.

You can do it – even before the manufacturer finds out.

Don’t believe us?

Ask your colleagues.

Industry experts like yourself tell us how they leverage CMMS software inclusive of preventive maintenance to do just that.

You can efficiently manage and track equipment.

You can keep a good schedule and focus on your facility.

That results in identifying a defect before the equipment’s manufacturer.

It also leads to fixing the flaw much sooner and before it cripples your facility’s operation.

We’re talking about a real reduction in downtime and substantial money savings.

Automation of your maintenance activities becomes easy with your CMMS up and running too.

Scheduled events allow you to focus on running a smooth operation while keeping your equipment up to date.

Preventive maintenance (PM) measures let you quickly identify faulty equipment, reduce downtime, and cut costs.

Keep reading; we’re going to dive into all of this in the following sections.

Your maintenance operation is the core of your property.

It shapes how your customers perceive your effectiveness.

Do they see broken furniture?

Does the power always go out in areas of your property?

Are the property’s employees always contacting your team because defective equipment is hindering their workday?

Or, is everything running smoothly and looking good?

Your ability to achieve the latter is necessary.

But, how is it affecting your bottom line?

Are you spending so much money to fix and maintain equipment that you’re losing money?

You need to employ preventive maintenance software if that’s the case.

A strategy that includes a CMMS with a preventive aspect helps you maximize where your resources are going.

Today, we’re going to explain what you need to do, because it doesn’t stop at implementing the system.

There’s more work to do.

Are you ready?

CMMS software is a unique solution that can help any facility manager move toward a profitable maintenance operation.

The challenge, however, is knowing which systems are going to help you reduce operational waste and cut hindering costs.

Many of the so-called maintenance solutions we see have flaws.

They claim to be a “paperless” system but only limit the amount of paperwork used by your staff.

One piece of paper leads to another, and then another, and then you discover after all your system isn’t paperless at all.

Your paperwork orders turn into files that turn into stacks of files, that’s when matters get worse.

Or, we should say that’s when matters get missed.

Vital activities and tasks that are important to running a stable and humming operation start slipping through the cracks.

These missed maintenance objectives cost you money.

You’re back to asking yourself, “What do we do?”

Does this sound familiar?

Are you tired of only focusing on saving your you-know-what?

Wouldn’t you rather be able to easily cut your maintenance costs and focus on increasing the profitability of your property?

We’re going to show you how.

We’re going to show you how the right CMMS software can help eradicate hefty costs, that way you can focus your efforts on increasing profits.
