Whilst you may have an understanding of the ins and outs of planned maintenance, to really get to the heart of the benefits of this maintenance approach it’s best to look at the ways that planned maintenance can save your business money.
- Extended Life
Planned maintenance means that your facility is constantly checked, and any issues, even small ones, are fixed quickly. This means that the lifespan of your systems (such as security or air conditioning) are maximized as there is less chance of a problem, thus saving you money on expensive replacements and ensuring you get the most out of your investment.
- Reduced Downtime
When a problem occurs, your whole business can grind to a halt as the issue is being resolved. This not only means that you are paying your employees for downtime, but the work they would usually be undertaking will most likely be disrupted too. Planned maintenance reduces the likelihood of this happening, as many issues are resolved before a disaster occurs.
- Decreased Energy Bills
A facility that is regularly maintained will run efficiently using less energy. This, in turn, will reduce your energy bills (as well as your carbon footprint on the world!).
- Less Expensive Breakdown Call Outs
When there is an unexpected problem, the cost of an emergency call out can be incredibly expensive, not only for the time spent fixing the issue, but also the cost of materials. Planned maintenance can vastly reduce the need for these call outs as your facility is maintained regularly and any issues can often be fixed before they turn into huge problems.
- Happy, Returning Customers
Customers want a company that can deliver, on time and with minimal issues. Difficulties mean delays will occur whilst being dealt with, leading to annoyed customers who may possibly not return. Planned maintenance ensures that these issues are reduced and your customers stay happy, continuing to spend money with your company.
At MSL, our planned maintenance services include creating a bespoke maintenance schedule to cover all aspects of the facility that you want managed, as well as compiling an assets register, with the aim to minimise disasters and reduce the need for expensive call outs.
