Educational facilities have a wide variety of assets that need to be managed and maintained in order for the facility to operate efficiently. From classrooms and cafeterias to playgrounds, gyms, and libraries, keeping these assets up-to-date is essential for providing a safe learning environment and delivering quality education. A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) can help streamline this asset management process, helping educational facilities save time and money.
A CMMS is a software system that helps facility managers track their assets and their maintenance needs. It stores data on each asset such as its location, condition, age, and usage history. This information can be used to plan preventive maintenance tasks, prioritize repairs and replacements, monitor inventory levels of spare parts, and track labor costs. A CMMS also helps automate the maintenance process by sending automated notifications when it’s time for scheduled maintenance tasks or repairs.
In addition to helping educational facilities manage their assets more effectively, a CMMS can also save them money. By tracking usage histories and condition data, facility managers can better schedule preventive maintenance tasks that will help extend the life of their assets before they have to be replaced. This reduces overall repair and replacement costs as well as downtime caused by unexpected asset failures. A CMMS can also help decrease labor costs by automating certain aspects of the maintenance process, such as scheduling and notifying staff members when tasks are due.
Overall, a CMMS can be an invaluable tool for educational facilities. It helps streamline asset management processes, saves money by reducing repair and replacement costs, and decreases labor costs through automation. With all these benefits, it’s easy to see why a CMMS is such a valuable asset in the educational facility environment.

Cost savings in education can be achieved through the use of a Computerised Maintenance Management System (CMMS). A CMMS helps schools and universities to better manage their facilities, equipment, maintenance needs and budgets.
Schools and universities are responsible for managing a large number of assets, from computers to furniture to buildings. Keeping track of these assets manually can be tedious and time-consuming.
Schools and other educational institutions are responsible for the safety of their students, teachers, and staff. In order to ensure that everyone remains safe in an emergency situation, schools must have a comprehensive plan in place.
