Software for Preventive Maintenance May be Your Best Investment Yet

Software for preventive maintenance is one of the most critical investments you can make for the future of your organization. Your equipment represents an enormous outlay of money, and it stands to reason that you want to maximize the lifespan of every one of those items. Software for preventive maintenance enables you to track and manage the service schedules for each piece of equipment. Instead of waiting until an item breaks down, which results in decreased productivity and high repair or even replacement costs, you can avoid such a scenario by sticking to a regular inspection schedule. The software also enables you to analyze and report on the costs of both of those scenarios – breakdown, repair or replacement; or periodic maintenance.
Consider a typical company with numerous pieces of equipment, each of them attached to an insurance policy, maintenance history, lease/purchase information and other unique data. Now imagine trying to keep up with that equipment using manual processes. Some companies are still relying on such outdated processes. Unfortunately, an Excel spreadsheet is a recipe for error. A missed keystroke, a forgotten number, employee oversight or duplication of effort could result in incorrect data. Relying on manual processes increases the risk of equipment loss or theft, premature replacement, incorrect data reporting, fines at tax time, and frustration when your employees have to spin their wheels trying to hunt down items. Your costs go up and your efficiency goes down. And as we get ready for 2017, this is a time when schedules are packed and companies are trying to close out the year, making it that much harder to stay organized and keep a close eye on the details.

With software for preventive maintenance, you can anticipate and respond to your equipment needs before minor issues become major repairs or worse. Your operational costs decrease when you protect and preserve your vital assets.
