This article will explain how Transcendent makes a good EAM–CMMS for Prisons and Jails.
Federal Prison Capital Budgeting
In 2010, the Federal Prison System is requesting less money for their annual budget while hiring over 1,200 more employees (Federal Prison Budget). If they are requesting less money and hiring more people, how can you save money this year without reducing employee salaries? The answer is a computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) program called Transcendent.
CMMS programs have been helping clients of all industries; including but not limited to: Hotels and Resorts, Sports Arenas, Airports, and Cities. Let’s review how a CMMS system can help your prison keep track of and help maintain valuable assets all while cutting capital expenditure. Transcendent provides easy asset tracking with assigned scheduled maintenance tasks, status updates, and on demand work order requests. Here are just a few of the ways this CMMS program can help your prison:
- Improve employee and inmate productivity and accountability with electronic work order requesting and assignable maintenance tasks.
- Keep the prisons safe and secure with scheduled preventative maintenance on all of your assets, make sure that an inmate can’t loosen the bars due to neglected maintenance.
- Get rid of a paper and pencil system by using our durable, safe, user friendly handhelds, all of which communicate with a web based interface which can be accessed from anywhere.
- Save capital expenditure by seeing inspection history and repair costs of a specific asset to see if repairs are still cost effective.
