The summertime heat is in full effect. At MicroMain’s Headquarters in Texas, 100° plus days are the norm. It’s not just the people who need a attention to avoid injury, the equipment and buildings themselves need a little extra TLC. Here are some common issues during the summer, and how a CMMS or CAFM could help.
Air Conditioner Overload
When the AC goes out in your house or car, you’re not happy. When it goes out in a facility you manage, it could mean a lot of sweaty complaints and frustration.
According to Around the Clock, “over 70% of all air conditioning and compressor outages could be avoided if the equipment was regularly checked, adjusted, calibrated, and maintained by qualified technicians.”
To know when to service your equipment, replace parts, and inspect critical components, you need a system. A CMMS is designed to keep track of these things.
Keep track of related parts inventories and you will never be wondering where that filter went, or have to make a rush trip to buy some coolants.
Where’d Everyone Go?
Summertime means vacation and fun in the sun. Your facility could be a little more empty this time of year. This is especially true if you manage a school or in other seasonal industries.
Nearly 59% of people in the US took vacation last year during summer. Having space that unused or missused is a sign your operations aren’t optimized.
Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM) Software tackles these problems.
MicroMain Facility Management software uses interactive drawings to access comprehensive records about people, spaces, and assets. You can determine if a space is occupied, square footage, plan moves, and more.
Using our CMMS offering, holidays and vacation hours can be tracked and reported on, so no lost hours will slip through the cracks.
Entertainment and Recreation
MLB stadiums sell 24,300,000 hotdogs each year! What could help maintain such a massive operation?
MicroMain’s software has supported zoos, amusement parks, stadiums and other fun-filled places.
Using our software, operators can clean up spills, keep track of maintenance, manage assets, and in the end, save money. Maintenance can be accomplished and visitors will have fun!
