As the year comes to an end you want to relax over the holidays, but, as a facilities manager, there’s a good chance you’ll spend some of your time off creating a mental to-do list of all the work orders that are going to carry over into 2017. It would be nice to start the year off with a clean slate, but facilities are complex machines that need constant attention, meaning the work orders are always coming in.
Why can’t you start with a clean slate? Why wasn’t your team able to address all of the work orders before the year ended? Your answer is most likely resources. You didn’t have the time and/or manpower to be able to address every issue. You may be under-staffed, or just swamped with work, and that’s normalized the never ending list of work orders. This is something that we deal with often – the normalization of an endless list, and people saying things such as “it’s always going to be that way”. It doesn’t have to be like this. If you had 91 extra days to address work orders, with zero new work orders coming in, could your team finish the list?
This is exactly what eFacility was created to do. We have consistently proven with our customers that we can eliminate 25% of time spent on each work order. How? On average you spend a third of work order time looking for information. We cut this down from hours to seconds, allowing you to complete more word orders in a day. For example, if you’re like most facilities, you spend 6 hours (on average) per work order. 2 hours of this is spent searching for information. With eFacility we cut the work order time from 6 hours to about 4 hours. So instead of completing one work order a day, you’re completing two!
Sound too good to be true? Don’t worry, we ready to prove this to you! Start by watching this 90-second video on how eFacility works. After that, contact us and we’ll discuss exactly how eFacility will work for your facility.
Too direct? If you’re ending the year with an “endless” list that you think is normal, then we want to be direct in telling you that we are here to help!
