Like other facilities managers, you use your computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to transmit the work order from the person requesting service to the person doing the work. But there’s so much more that a smart, powerful CMMS can do for your facilities management (FM) team.
A smart CMMS will help you and your team positively impact the company’s bottom line. How exactly? Facilities teams at three companies share their stories about how they leverage Corrigo CMMS to improve operational and financial performance and save time and money in the process.
1. Location-enabled GPS tracking improves technician productivity & invoice accuracy
A Fortune 50 company used Corrigo’s GPS functionality to track data on technician locations and time spent onsite. They were then able to not only identify the most productive techs, but also coach less productive workers to improve efficiency.
GPS also provided technicians with important location data for assets needing to be repaired, so technicians didn’t waste time, for example, guessing which building on a multi-building site housed the equipment needing attention. Armed with location data, techs now show up with the right parts, in the right location, at the right time — and response times improved by 33%.
2. Incident management reveals revenue impact of high-value facilities activities
Floyd’s 99 Barbershop utilizes the incident management in Corrigo to track the impact of any operational interruption, no matter the cause, down to the asset level. If an asset is down — if it impacts anything — they record it as an incident, create reports, and disseminate them to the operations team so they see how these issues affect operations. Floyd’s 99 now understands the operational impact of any asset that stops functioning. All revenue-impacting events are also reportable, as are the costs and time required to address the events.
3. Reduce loss prevention through increased visibility across your stores
A major west coast grocery chain’s loss prevention team leverages the Corrigo CMMS platform to report theft attempts. Theft reporting was previously sent via email and employees had to manually enter information. Without a formal, standardized reporting process in place, information was often incomplete, erroneous, and nonstandard across locations. Now they use Corrigo, which prompts users to correct and complete information so reports are accurate and complete.
The company generates automated reports and sends them to district directors as well as to loss-prevention managers in each region. Store managers use these insights to decide whether to spend more on security and which measures make financial sense.
