The Power of Predictive Maintenance

INTRODUCING PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE ANALYTICS

With so many tenants and units to manage, requests, repairs, complaints, staff management, cleaning, apartment turns… It can be easy to get lost in the every day, easy to be blinded to the underlying problems and to focus on treating the symptoms.

By doing that however you’re at risk of neglecting your biggest asset – your properties.

By automating your processes through Travtus, every day you’re capturing huge amounts of data on your maintenance operations. Every time a tenant makes a request, every time your workmen check in to or out of a job you’re capturing valuable information that when analysed can reveal invaluable insight in to the health of your buildings and the performance of your staff.

With advanced analytical tools you can use that data to see patterns, patterns that help you see through the day to day noise and understand where you can invest wisely to improve the health of your properties and performance of your team.

Did you know that 12% of all maintenance requests are to resolve blocked sinks and bathtubs. $100,000’s is spent in resolving them. At 28 minutes on average to resolve each one, your supers can spend a month a year just unclogging drains.

Now use that insight and invest in drain screens for every sink shower and tub, reducing the number of clogs that you have to resolve by half? A targeted investment that saves you $000’s? Its a no brainer!

Now imagine that you are able to analyse floor by floor and line by line, you identify that you have 20% of your maintenance efforts going into resolving leaks in Apartment H on every floor. You’re able to see that you have a systemic problem putting at risk the health of your property. Allowing you time to take planned investment that can prevent much more costly consequences in the future.
