Preventive Maintenance Software Can Get Your House in Order

Preventive maintenance software can help you start the New Year off on a fiscally responsible note. At this point in the year, you’re probably establishing budgets and priorities for 2017. Preventive maintenance software is designed to help you detect and ultimately prevent equipment breakdown. Routine servicing keeps equipment in good working order, so that minor issues don’t become major overhauls or replacements. Equipment failure can, of course, also bring productivity to a screeching halt – another reason to invest in software that stays on top of the critical details you can’t afford to miss.

Within any organization, you have responsibility for the oversight of equipment and tools necessary to keep your business running smoothly; or perhaps you service equipment for clients. Keeping track of the respective maintenance schedules of each of these pieces of equipment is an enormous task. Relying on an Excel spreadsheet is unreliable at best because there are simply too many moving parts to track, from an item’s insurance policy, lease or purchase information, maintenance history, check-in/check-out status, depreciation information, location and condition, and so much more. Whether you’re monitoring your equipment internally or both for yourself and for clients, a manual system is a sure-fire way to make costly mistakes. A missed or duplicated number, lost or stolen items that go unreported, or changing staff assignments all can lead to confusion, error and unnecessary expense.

Preventive maintenance software should make your life easier while you save time and money. And that’s the idea behind Asset Panda, the most powerful mobile asset tracking platform in the world. All that’s required to use Asset Panda is the smartphone or tablet you already carry – or use the web app, if you wish. Our free mobile iOS and Android apps sync with the cloud and include a mobile barcode scanner for easy uploading. Then add such vital details to asset records as photos, documents, voice notes and videos. From the palm of your hand, you can access within seconds such information as an item’s exact location and condition, its expected return date, insurance expiration, depreciation or inflation figures, GPS coordinates, complete maintenance history and more. You’re not limited to a specific number of users; you can add as many as you’d like at no additional charge. Bringing everyone into the communication loop increases accountability and accuracy throughout your entire organization.

From a preventive maintenance standpoint, you can use Asset Panda to schedule automated notifications and alerts based on various triggers. You can also use the tool to send email reminders, create work orders and issue reports. You can view high-level data and make better informed decisions about equipment and parts allocation, service scheduling and more. Asset Panda can help you eliminate the occurrence of idle equipment while it’s needed elsewhere; downtime when equipment breaks down prematurely; and the steep costs of replacing equipment all too soon.

Perhaps most important, Asset Panda is incredibly simple to use and requires no special training to master. From its dashboard to its completely customizable features, it’s an app that even the most technologically challenged employee can understand and use with ease. Because it’s so flexible, you can display your data in the way it makes sense for your business. Asset listing views, the dashboard, fields, columns, actions, security settings and other features are based on your preferences. And Asset Panda’s powerful platform is flexible enough to incorporate other technologies as they become prevalent. As you adapt, so do we.
