What’s your maintenance process like? Are you sure you’re getting the most out of it? The answer may not be obvious. It’s not always easy to see where you’re excelling and where you might be able to improve. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to assess whether your company’s maintenance operations are as efficient as possible.
How good is our communication with residents?
Communication with your residents is vital to success in maintenance. For things to really work, residents need a way to report issues to you, you need to be able to ask follow-up questions, and everyone needs to respond in a timely manner. It’s best to have a platform like ManageGo that allows you and your residents to create tickets and replies through the website, the mobile app, or email. That way, everyone can reply quickly and stay in touch, no matter where they are.
How good is our internal communication?
Of course, the residents aren’t the only people you need to communicate with. It’s important for you and your staff to stay connected throughout the maintenance process. That’s why ManageGo allows you to easily make internal replies, visible to staff only, on the website and mobile app. It’s also simple to create and send printable work orders for any staff member who needs a paper copy of the details.
How much time do we spend on recurring work?
Maintenance isn’t just about reacting to issues reported by your residents. Sometimes, you need to be proactive and work to identify problems before they become a major issue. This might include things like move-in/move-out walkthroughs, inspections, preventive maintenance, and seasonal work. If you’re not careful, recording and managing tasks like this can result in a lot of extra, unnecessary work for you. Avoid that problem by taking advantage of ManageGo features like checklists and recurring tickets to simplify things and streamline your process.
