When is the best time to start using facility management software?

You're managing multiple buildings

Keeping track of all the moving parts and documentation for just one building can be daunting. Consider all the equipment you may have on a single factory floor, not to mention maintenance and inspection records for everything from chillers and boilers to elevators. Now multiple that across several buildings, and your job becomes a lot more complex. Without facility management software to keep it all organized, you'll be buried in paperwork before you know it.

You need to track facility management KPIs

Do you know how much your company spent on maintenance costs last year? How much equipment downtime did you have? Are those numbers trending up or down? Without facility management software that keeps track of these key performance indicators, it's impossible to know for sure. The best facility management software solutions will allow you to create reports and dashboards, giving you complete visibility into the metrics that matter.

You need better recordkeeping for compliance

New FASB accounting regulations require facilities managers to keep detailed records of every leased asset, including buildings. A good facility management software system allows you to store all that information in one place, along with building inspection records and other critical documentation.

KPIs for a facilities manager

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) help facilities managers measure how well their current processes stack up over time. But to make better facilities decisions, they need better data.

With ManagerPlus's facility management software, get at-a-glance performance metrics on the dashboard, so you don’t waste time tracking down the numbers you care about most. Strategic process improvements are that much closer with readily available KPIs at your fingertips:

  • Backlog Work Orders: detailed tracking gives insights into outstanding, noncritical items by helping to identify gaps in machine utilization, staffing, and more.
  • Reactive Maintenance Rate: what portion of your maintenance is a reaction to emergencies or requests? Knowing where to make improvements is the first step to strategic planning.
  • Preventive Maintenance Compliance: how many preventive maintenance work orders are being completed on time? Set a benchmark and prevent work orders from falling through the cracks. Maintaining high compliance means things are running smoothly.
