summer camp maintenance

Established in 1981, Camp Tejas is a Christian Camp and Retreat Center located on a 160-acre campus in central Texas.

Including special events, the camp and retreat center hosts over 25,000 people a year. From maintaining bunkhouses, buildings, equipment, and acres of property filled with outdoor adventure activities and programs, there is a lot to maintain and keep track of to ensure the safety of campers and guests. Keeping things running smoothly, ensuring that areas and equipment are safe, being able to manage work orders, ensuring that work orders are all being taken care of and responded to quickly is extremely important. Having a system that is reliable, easy to use, and accessible from anywhere and is reasonably priced is a must. Based on research and recommendations from other camps, Camp Tejas implemented the eWorkOrders CMMS solution.

Business Challenge

Mike is the Facilities Director at Camp Tejas, who faces challenges every day in keeping up with everything that needs to be maintained or repaired throughout the campus. Before he implemented the eWorkOrders CMMS solution, he managed everything through note-taking, frequently writing on the palm of his hand or whatever was convenient to write the message on.

Important Tips To Create A Successful SaaS Product

April 2021

SaaS eWorkOrders

“Once you have decided that you are going to build a SaaS, it is important that you include the following in your planning.

  1. A good understanding of the customers\business requirements.
  2. Define data security specifications.
  3. Design the disaster recovery process.
  4. Identify the appropriate team members, and their capabilities, that will be implementing the software.
  5. Design the data structure necessary to implement.
  6. Select the appropriate software for your back end and front end.
  7. Design the user interface with the customer’s needs in mind. Ensure if it is really easy to utilize.
  8. Customer support preparation.
  9. Determine Service Level Agreement (SLA) including turnaround time, etc.
  10. Documentation for the entire infrastructure.
  11. Customer training.
  12. Determine the best places to market your product and market it as much as possible.
  13. Listen to user feedback and use this to improve your offering.
  14. I feel the most ideal way to build a SaaS product is to incorporate it into a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS). The main reasons for using a CMMS SaaS are accessibility from anywhere using a computer, Smartphone, or mobile device, data security, and low total cost of ownership.

What are the goals of successful implementation?

Clearly defined and agreed to objectives.

Complete dedication and focus on the project plan.

Strategic flexibility.

Alignment of best practices.

A good understanding of the team’s capabilities and availability.

Continuous assessment.”

Work Orders: Managing Maintenance Backlog

March 2021

Maintenance Management

During the COVID-19 pandemic, maintenance teams had the responsibility to help their companies operate through this major disaster. As businesses return into operation, maintenance teams are now facing the biggest challenges of our time.

Facing those maintenance backlogs from preventive maintenance routines, predictive maintenance tasks, to corrective maintenance work – where do you start? To get these tasks under control you need effective Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software to help you in your planning, scheduling, and organization of resources and tasks to keep your business operating.

Neyer property management uses eWorkOrders CMMS solution.

They could get it up and running the same day.  Very full-featured. Excellent support that understood not only the product, but also my real need for it. In other words, they took the time to understand my business, not just sell their solution. Responsive, easy to understand and easy to reach. Exceptionally good value. We have tried both the Timberline and MRI service management modules and we find this product 100x easier to use. We have been very pleased since we first started using it. Not only is the product very good, but the service is over the top good. I was trying to develop a custom solution with a programmer and wasted dozens of hours and thousands of dollars to get way, way less functionality that is delivered by this product.

parkview baptist church-CMMS

After years of struggling with an out-of-date paperwork order system, we decided to go with eWorkOrders. Since going online with eWorkOrders church members and school staff are able to open work-orders and get timely feedback almost instantly. Our maintenance staff is able to easily inform the originators of the progress on their work order. It is nice to have the best of both worlds.
