As with all our different software products, Asset Management (AM) was built to solve a problem. This particular problem was brought to us by a school district in Texas.
The district’s problem was that after any new construction or renovation project; the plans, commissioning paperwork, manufacture warranty, contractor POC, OEM manuals and other related documents do not make it to their maintenance team easily, if at all. So, the district was unintentionally voiding both the contractor and manufacture warranties resulting in increased M&O costs and asset down time.
We resolved the issue in two areas. First, we created a new gold standard for project close outs. Second, created a way to start tracking an assets paperwork as early as during a submittal process within the Owner Insite software. Any asset and its corresponding paperwork is captured for the district’s maintenance team and accessible in 4 clicks or less. The feedback was so positive we decided to build out an entirely new software with even more capabilities. Now with the click of a button all their information can be sent from one software platform to another.
Asset Management can be a powerful stand alone maintenance management system for any maintenance team. Or with the help of Facility Insite & Owner Insite software platforms it can capture the entire facility life cycle.
