Client Background

Our client is a leading senior living service provider, operating multiple assisted living and retirement homes across the country. With a commitment to delivering top-quality care and an expanding portfolio of facilities, the client faced several challenges in managing its maintenance operations effectively.

Maintenance Challenges

As the number of residents and facilities grew, they faced a significant challenge in managing maintenance operations efficiently. The company relied on a traditional paper-based system to track and manage maintenance requests, work orders, and asset management. This manual approach resulted in several critical issues:

Inefficient Work Order Management: Handling maintenance requests and work orders manually led to delays, miscommunication, and a lack of transparency in the maintenance process.

Asset Tracking and Maintenance: The absence of a centralized asset tracking system made it difficult to manage equipment maintenance, track service history, and ensure timely repairs.

Unplanned Downtime: The lack of preventive maintenance practices resulted in frequent breakdowns, causing unplanned downtime and negatively impacting residents’ experience.

Resource Allocation: Without detailed insights into maintenance trends and performance, the facility struggled to allocate resources optimally, leading to higher operational costs.

Lack of Reporting and Analytics: The absence of comprehensive reporting and data analytics prevented the management from gaining insights into maintenance trends, costs, and performance, hindering strategic decision-making.

Seeking to overcome these challenges and enhance the overall efficiency of its maintenance operations, the senior living facility decided to explore a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) solution.
