COST SAVINGS AND BUSINESS BENEFITS ENABLED BY UPKEEP

UpKeep | An Innovative and mobile-first CMMS (computerized maintenance management system)


Challenges:

Prior to deploying UpKeep, a manufacturing company did not have a formal system in place for recording asset information and preventative maintenance. The organization relied on sticky notes posted on white boards for technicians to review and apply preventative maintenance tasks to assets. This process limited the organization’s ability to create comprehensive reports on asset health, which led to production downtime occurrences, lost records, and hours of unplanned work.

In the past, asset feedback would go from word of mouth to either emails, texts, or sticky notes. Because of that inefficiency at communication, work orders wouldn’t get done and slipped through the cracks. - National reliability manager, Manufacturer

Solution:

Since deploying UpKeep at seven of its facilities across North America, the organization has improved asset record keeping by allowing facility technicians to immediately upload asset information on their mobile devices and then find the information quickly with the application — saving hours in time spent looking for asset information on sticky notes. Improved record keeping is helping technicians to assess which assets need preventative work, reducing the number of downtime occurrences and time spent on unplanned work.
