FacilityManager CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) can provide significant benefits to housing associations. Here are some of the top benefits:
- Better Maintenance Planning: Housing associations are responsible for maintaining a large number of properties, which can be a complex and time-consuming task. FacilityManager can help simplify maintenance planning by providing a centralized platform for scheduling and tracking maintenance tasks. This can help ensure that all properties are properly maintained and that maintenance tasks are completed on time.
- Improved Asset Management: Housing associations often have a large number of assets to manage, including buildings, appliances, and equipment. FacilityManager can help track and manage these assets, including maintenance schedules, repair histories, and warranty information. This can help extend the life of assets, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure that all assets are being used effectively.
- Increased Efficiency: FacilityManager can help housing associations improve efficiency by automating many maintenance tasks, such as work order creation, scheduling, and tracking. This can help reduce the time and resources needed to manage maintenance tasks, freeing up staff to focus on other important tasks.
- Better Record-Keeping: Housing associations need to maintain detailed records of all maintenance activities, including work orders, service histories, and warranties. FacilityManager can help ensure that all records are accurate and up-to-date, making it easier to track maintenance activities and make informed decisions about future maintenance needs.
- Improved Communication: FacilityManager can improve communication between maintenance staff, property managers, and residents. Work orders can be easily created and tracked, and residents can report issues easily via their mobile phone and can be notified about upcoming maintenance activities. This can help improve resident satisfaction and reduce the number of maintenance-related complaints.
Overall, FacilityManager can help housing associations improve maintenance planning, asset management, efficiency, record-keeping, and communication. By investing in FacilityManager, housing associations can better manage their properties and provide a high level of service to their residents.
