Equipment is the biggest investment for many companies. It’s a powerful incentive to engage in regular preventive maintenance to extend the useful life of that equipment, and it helps save money and improve the financial position of the company. Tracking maintenance may also help prevent potential liability for incidents related to inadequately maintained equipment and regulatory compliance. Setting a regular maintenance schedule can help companies identify potential misuse of equipment, or equipment that is faulty and prone to breakdowns.
Consistent maintenance also helps organizations better identify when it is time for equipment to be replaced. But keeping track of maintenance for every piece of equipment in your organization can be labor intensive, particularly if you rely on paper records.
With today’s technology at hand, companies can keep costs down for implementing a state-of-the-art equipment tracking and management system with no special equipment by using scan tags and smartphones.
