A lot has changed over the past few years; workplace occupants and their customers now expect a higher standard of service, safety, comfort, health, and experience from their office spaces. It’s safe to say that the world is advancing with new technologies and advancing in ways we didn’t imagine. This means that the maintenance done to your facility also needs to make the same types of advancements.
Technology and Maintenance
Just like in all aspects of our lives the implantation of new technology in office spaces continue reshaping our workspaces and how they need to be taken care of. As technology expands so does the maintenance needed to keep everything running smoothly. We have seen great advances in technology and the impact those advancements have had on facility maintenance improvements, including cutting costs! The best way to prepare for the year is property inspections.
Technology and The Evolution of Maintenance
While technology has improved office spaces broadly, it has done wonders for the field of facility maintenance and its reliability. Maintenance has undergone a huge transformation as a field of work. Before, reactive maintenance was used to response to something that had already broken. Now, preventative maintenance has come into play as the more cost-effective method. Rather than waiting for something to go wrong, preventative maintenance has evolved allowing facility owners and managers to inspect the property and equipment in advance to make sure everything is running smooth.
Maintenance systems vary depending on the facility, but some common types that can be put in place include, periodic inspections, cleanings, and even part replacement if needed. We have seen and will continue to see these systems evolve as communication, internet, and processing technology grows.
Example of Useful Technological Advancement
Sensors are one example of technological advancement that can be placed to provide automatic monitoring on equipment so that regular maintenance can be scheduled timely which helps prevent imminent failure. Sensors can also help with ordering parts as needed before a major breakdown. Sensor data that is collected can also help reduce costs maintenance costs in your facility. Sensors are only one example, there are other types of technologies that help the user analyze data effectively such as mobile solutions.
