Asset Tracking List
Maintenance Connection’s asset tracking system allows you to view all relevant asset details on one centralized location, including asset make, model, serial number, purchase date and related documentation like maintenance history and warranty information.
Work Order Management Tool
Providing a tool that helps you manage work orders will allow your team to proactively create, check, track, prioritize and assign work requests across locations and devices. Your maintenance teams can also see key information – like past work orders, related images or documents, warranty information, and maintenance history – directly within the work order. This can ultimately improve maintenance tracking processes and increase employee efficiency.
Mobile Device Capabilities
Allowing operators and technicians to input information and view critical documentation on-site using the MC Express mobile app can increase efficiency, streamline processes, decrease delays and help ensure that documents are up-to-date and always complete.
MRO Inventory and Spare Parts Management
Overstock, hard-to-find parts and missing inventory can skyrocket costs and negatively impact efficiency and the execution of work orders. Maintenance Connection can simplify inventory parts management by helping users track inventory parts, access supplier and vendor information and automate inventory ordering. This can ultimately save time, reduce inventory costs and avoid costly mistakes.
Maintenance Reporting and Dashboards
Actionable data and insights into key metrics – like asset performance, labor productivity, maintenance activities and inventory costs – can help you identify weaknesses, improve your processes and ultimately create effective preventive maintenance schedules and plans.
If your tools cannot effectively integrate with one another, your business will deal with incomplete information, missing information, delays and more. Maintenance Connection integrates with your mission-critical tools to sidestep these concerns, including electronic document management systems (EDMS), remote monitoring systems and your ERP.
Enterprise Asset Management
Maintenance Connection has robust enterprise asset management features so you can not only manage maintenance during the operational part of the asset lifecycle but also increase asset health throughout the asset lifecycle.
Ensure compliance, protect yourself against cyber threats and manage your permissions effectively with Maintenance Connection’s fully customizable security features.
Detailed Asset Repair History
Comprehensive insight into the repair history of each asset can help you understand asset costs, predict when an asset will need maintenance and make informed decisions about an asset’s value.
The right maintenance scheduling software can help your organization automate and streamline your maintenance scheduling using calendars, usage-based triggers, mobile apps, notifications and streamlined workflows. This can not only maximize efficiency but also save time and improve your overall asset health.
