So many maintenance management software tools out there are built with the sole purpose of having one place to capture information. This is great! But, what are you going to do with that data once you have it?In this post, we continue to talk about automation, a core tool in FM Dashboard to help you free your time so you can focus on advancing your maintenance program and your career.parking lot lightsLet's look at an example.Your facility maintenance software can show the repair history for RTU # 3 for the last 5 years. You go take a look at the history and see it has been repaired 4 times in the last six months. This is incredible information to have. The only problem is your internal standards say dictate you should have looked into the need for replacing the components after the third repair. You missed this because you hadn't gotten around to reviewing your reports.This is a problem.What if your maintenance management software did this for you? What if, instead of going to search for the location history, you received an automatic notification after the third repair. What if you could set a custom repair notice for every single asset you choose to track?Tracking is not enough, and you should demand more from your maintenance technology tools.We build everything feature for usability. This means when a customer asks us, "can your software track X?" we ask, "What are you going to do with that data?"We choose not to build features that create more work for our customers. It's one part of our company values.[button size="large" url="http://fmdashboard.com/free-demo" content="See a demo now"]
