This article will explain why Mintek’s Transcendent makes a good Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) for Property Management.

Why a Hosted Preventive Maintenance Solution Can Benefit Property Management

In the Spring, oak and other trees are just beginning to pollinate leaving a fine coat of dust on top of cars, tree trimming services are in full service trimming branches off trees and away from buildings. Within a month, pollen will be so prevalent roofs will change color and residents will be compelled to dust more frequently. For property management this is the ideal time to ensure preventive maintenance is being performed.

“Building systems are the lifeblood of any facility. Without lighting, water, or heating and cooling, a building would be uninhabitable. That is why a strong preventive and predictive HVAC maintenance program isn’t an option; it’s a must.”

The Need For Preventive Maintenance

Utilizing a preventive maintenance solution will ensure that all property managements assets whether they are recreational facilities, storm drains, roofs, HVAC or trees are cleaned, trimmed, inspected or otherwise maintained at regularly scheduled intervals. This enables property management to avoid unnecessary repairs due to clogged drains, corrosion, discoloration, inefficient HVAC airflow, debris buildup or insect infestation from trees touching buildings.

Why an Hosted Enterprise Asset Management System (EAM)

hosted EAM enables property management to set automated preventive maintenance schedules without expensive IT investment in computers. Hosting is done at facilities that provide 24/7/365 access to data via the web along with security and built in redundancy to avoid asset data loss. When combined with handheld technology, property management can virtually eliminate paper flow as work orders, inspections and repairs can all be recorded at the touch of a button. In addition, Reserve Study data can be used to identify assets and integrated into Transcendent. This combination provides for far greater asset lifecycle management particularly for determining a more accurate time frame for asset retirement/replacement.
