“I’ve had it!”

Your senior engineer marches into your office. “We need a new system, yesterday,” Mike asserts.

You look at him for a moment and begin responding, “Do you know…”

“Yes, I know how much time it’ll take to extract the current data and move all the equipment, materials, and vendors to a new system,” he interrupts.

Mike has been advocating for a new CMMS for several months now. You’ve been holding out because you know the demands of a project of this magnitude.

But, today you’re going to get behind it. It’s time for an upgrade.

You’re going to move to a new CMMS.

Discussing CMMS software is a sensitive subject for facility managers. We know this because we built one and talk about it to a lot of facility managers.

How cumbersome these systems are is indeed terrifying to most. From the amount of time it takes to learn the system to the uploading of vendor, equipment, and material information – many legacy systems could take months to become operational.

You do not have time for that, do you? Yes, your solution needs to robust, but it also needs to be simple.

We get it; there is a lot of time that goes into turning on your first system or moving to a new one. However, once that transition is over, using and maintaining the software must be a breeze for you, your engineers and technicians.

A CMMS is one of the most underutilized tools used by facilities.

To us, that’s shocking data. Facility maintenance is a necessity, yet many facilities find their software to be cumbersome and extremely difficult to get off the ground. Nevertheless, these solutions are powerful.

Maintenance software has many benefits to offer…and we don’t want you to miss out.

Today, we’re going to show you how to successfully squeeze the most value from your software. We want you to fully utilize it and reap all the benefits.Keep reading, because we’ll show how to streamline your facility maintenance for good, which allows you to execute in a way that’s expected by your guests – and your boss.

You might already know this, stress causes almost half of all employee workplace related issues.

From low productivity to performance related incidents, and continuous absences to employee turnover, these all lead back to stress.

There’s no question, stress is the infamous part of facility management that facility managers like yourself want to avoid.

Why do you think stress is prevalent at facilities? We’d argue that it’s due to inefficiency.

We’ve been talking about stress more so lately because we’ve realized that inefficiency and stress are correlated to one another. In fact, we’d go as far to say stress is a strong symptom of inefficiency.

Your facility depends on you.

We get it.  It’s a complex responsibility and there are so many moving parts. A CMMS can help.

You and your staff don’t have to experience workplace stress. Believe it or not, stress is NOT a prerequisite for running a facility.

So, why do so many facility managers suffer every day? Well, we’d say they don’t have five crucial areas of maintenance mastered quite yet.

If you’re struggling with your maintenance, don’t worry because we’ve got your back.

Keep reading, because in today’s article we’re going to share how a maintenance solution can help you tackle these five areas.

A large majority of issues facility managers deal with are the result of workplace stress.

From lack-of-productivity issues, issues caused by lack-of-performance, to staff absences and turnover…it all leads back to stress in the workplace.

Stress is a symptom of inefficiency. Remove it and you’re on track to an effective and efficient operation.

But, how do facility managers get rid of workplace stress?
