Asset management isn’t just knowing where your assets are, it’s about knowing how they are performing. For maintenance of assets, sending the right technician to the right job at the right time with the right tools and information is critical. A significant amount of asset maintenance time is spent reacting to issues rather than proactively resolving them. However, sometimes, organizations are bombarded with so many service request or work orders. The dispatcher needs to respond to the service requests and ensure maintenance technicians are utilized efficiently.

Today’s ever-changing market conditions and challenges such as generating more revenue, improving customer satisfaction and reducing costs drive c-level executives to find ways to optimize their maintenance processes. To deal with such challenges, organizations need a solution for asset maintenance that not only increases the productivity and efficiency of the maintenance crew but also helps in completing maintenance work faster. A solution, which has the latest features such as GIS mapping or route based-tracking of assets. It can result in reduced maintenance costs, proper utilization of maintenance crew and extended asset life -- all of which contribute to a lower total cost of ownership.

  1. Save money
  2. Save time (which can be used for other important activities, other than route planning)
