Project Description

University housing office significantly expedites work order processing with CMMS

Keeping all the components of a university housing system in good health and working properly is no easy task. It requires accurate tracking of what needs to be done and what has been done, as well as forecasting future maintenance requirements.

To address those challenges, in 2014, one university housing office started a search for an efficient way to automate work order and asset management for the thousands of student housing assets spread throughout more than two dozen buildings across its campus. The goal was to implement a computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) system to streamline work order and asset management and ultimately add a robust predictive maintenance program.
