With limited resources and older, out-of-date facilities, educational institutions are frequently being asked to do more with less. Money for repairs often falls down the budget priority list, causing conditions to deteriorate even further, which leads to safety issues, unplanned downtime and emergency repairs.
In such a lean environment, schools and universities must be fully transparent and accountable in how they address their maintenance issues. Institutions are challenged to prove spending requirements and fiscal responsibility to the boards and/or taxpayers who hold the purse strings, while showing that work is being properly tracked, completed and billed. In addition, they are striving to take care of maintenance needs in a proactive rather than reactive fashion in order to save money, improve efficiency and meet compliance and regulatory requirements.
As higher education institutions move toward proactive risk management, facilities managers are searching for better controls over the many systems, processes and procedures currently in place. A quality CMMS solution provides the tools educational institutions need to streamline maintenance operations and maximize equipment life.
CMMS software unifies maintenance data into one centralized, scalable, easy-to-use system with robust reporting and work order management to help schools and universities gain visibility into the asset lifecycle, meet compliance and safety goals, justify investment in staff and better demonstrate costs to key budget stakeholders – thereby ultimately benefitting the students they serve.
