Monitoring and recording all equipment that needs regular maintenance and assigning the correct preventive maintenance program; tracking state and federal maintenance requirements for these programs; bar coding equipment to easily assign all types of work required for a certain piece; ensuring equipment meets or exceeds life expectancy.

When PM work is scheduled for specific equipment that may involve interruptions in services in a building, such as generator testing or ventilation system maintenance, a notice is sent to the Building Contact(s) in advance of the scheduled work. The notice is also posted on our Alerts feed.
