From managing maintenance and service requests at a medium-sized enterprise to keeping track of ongoing equipment maintenance at a large construction site, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is an extremely useful tool for your business’ needs.
When choosing a CMMS system, businesses look for preventive maintenance, seamless equipment management, solid asset assignments, and insightful maintenance reports, which should lead to reduced maintenance costs.
School systems deal with a large volume of equipment and supplies. These include IT equipment, classroom furniture, text books, school supplies and much more. With such a diverse range of items to manage, it is important to devise a standardized school inventory system to stay organized and cost effective.
Employee productivity in an organization impacts most, if not all, key business metrics, including revenue, operational cost, customer satisfaction and more. Improving your organization’s employee productivity is one of the most effective ways to improve the bottom line without depleting resources.
Assets owned by organizations are often transferred across multiple locations such as warehouses or job sites per business requirements. For example, in the construction industry, tools and equipment are continuously being checked out to the field site for multiple projects. Without efficient tracking, companies lose and misplace their expensive equipment which has a serious impact on their bottom line.
Every business invests in fixed assets and these can range in cost from expensive equipment to disposable items bought in bulk. Whatever equipment you are using, it is important to maximize its usage. You can do this by setting up asset management goals to optimize output and extend the lifespan of your assets. Businesses need to set up these goals in alignment with their workflows and needs to achieve the best possible ROI.
While emergencies and disasters may be inevitable, the extent of devastation they cause can be greatly reduced by effective management. This can be done through the proper allocation of resources and responsibilities that involve all humanitarian aspects of emergencies and crises.
Companies using their own equipment for projects need to order, store and ship a wide range of items from their warehouses. An efficient warehouse management system can help optimize your storage space, track the complete lifecycle of inventory, and save you a lot of time and money.
Disaster restoration companies offer crucial services to help both residential and commercial customers in the aftermath of emergencies. These can include anything from water or fire damage, sewage, animal waste, crime scenes, deaths, biohazards and more.
The industry has seen rapid growth over the past five years to 2021 due to many contributing factors. Some key ones include a trend of increased spending on these services, aging homes and infrastructure that are more at risk for water damage, mold, and fire damage. Properties are also more vulnerable to damage from environmental factors such as severe storms, wildfires and more.
Despite tremendous progress in safety equipment and training as well as secure job sites, construction workers remain at a higher risk of injury. According to OSHA, about 20% of worker fatalities in the private industry in 2019 were in construction.
Accidents on construction sites occur due to a variety of reasons— most of which can be prevented. Understanding the root causes of site accidents is the first step to eliminating hazardous injuries to workers.
Struggling to take complete charge of your construction equipment? A construction equipment manager deals with procurement, usage, management, and maintenance of equipment ranging from expensive heavy-duty machines such as cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, and excavators, to smaller tools and accessories. Tracking such a large and diverse inventory of equipment can be challenging, especially if you are using manual methods.
