Is It Time To Invest in a CMMS?
April 26, 2013 (Marlton, NJ) – The introduction of new technology system-wide can seem daunting when staffing is tight and budgets are even slimmer. However, in the case of a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS), the cost of not investing often is far greater. A May 2 session at the Airport Council Spring Conference in Seattle will explain why.
Leading the workshop, titled “Is It Time To Invest in a CMMS?”, will be David Galante, Account Executive for the GSH Group, and Gene Pargas, Vice President for Strategic Accounts for eMaint Enterprises. GSH supports a variety of companies, including airports, with facilities management and energy-control services. Since it made the switch to eMaint’s X3 in 2008, GSH has experienced a 25 percent boost in productivity.
“When GSH came to eMaint, its mechanics and engineers reported spending significant amounts of time away from their real work, creating a ‘paper trail’ to track work orders and putting out fires that could have been avoided with more systematic preventive maintenance,” says Pargas. “GSH isn’t unique. The before-and-after success story it achieved for its clients can be a model for airports — and other businesses — everywhere.”
Pargas and Galante particularly credit the “mobile” features of the CMMS — allowing data to be entered or tracked anytime, anywhere via portable tablets or smartphones — for the business transformation at GSH.
In their 9:30 a.m. May 2 workshop, Pargas and Galante will offer a step-by-step guide to help airport maintenance managers decide when and how they should convert to a CMMS. The conference, sponsored by the International Facility Management Assn. (IFMA), is designed to address the challenges of managing airports in a global economy.
