GPISD has a workforce of more than 4,000 and is the largest employer in Grand Prairie, TX. The area’s growth continues to trend upward, and it’s projected that the present 29,000+ student population will increase substantially. In fact, the school district is slated to add another campus soon, for a total of 44 facilities. GPISD realized it would need a first-rate computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to grow with them.
Campus maintenance operations were formerly supported by Dude Solutions software. Dianna L. Drew, Director of Logistics and Documents Services for GPISD, determined the district needed an elevated CMMS. After a rigorous search, including participation in a few trial road tests, the district decided that the eMaint CMMS Enterprise level system offered them the optimum solution.
