What Is Building Maintenance Software?
Building maintenance software is the first step that will help maintenance professionals become more organized and operate more efficiently.
Building facilities maintenance managers must juggle a lot as they manage maintenance requests from employees within the building while maintaining a proactive preventive maintenance schedule to keep equipment up and running. Whether you have a multi-site organization or a small building to manage, a CMMS can help you track labor and inventory costs for each job, then run system reports to see how much you are spending on any particular area of the organization or type of job.
