Effective Facility Maintenance

Future-Proof Your Business: The Value of Planned, Preventative, and Responsive Maintenance for Facility Management

If there’s anything that seems to be in resounding agreement between managers of large businesses, it’s the initial investment of planned and preventative maintenance. Hiring a team of people to carry out this maintenance naturally comes at a cost and businesses do not see the immediate benefit of this.

Where only a reactive strategy is taken, a business might pay out for responsive repairs and instantly see the improvements. However, where money is spent on planned and preventative maintenance, all you really see is inspections and minor repairs being carried out and the continued running of your equipment.

It’s for this very reason that a lot of large businesses are still reluctant to get on board with the proactive approach. But the best business managers can easily see the bigger picture and the advantages of investing in a planned maintenance program.

Over the course of time, you’ll see how there are fewer unexpected incidents of equipment failure which mean fewer unexpected repair costs. More often than not, it will cost a lot more to call out an engineer to fix an issue immediately because of things like call-out charges. When you compare this to the ongoing cost of planned maintenance, you’ll see how it works out to be more cost-effective over time.

What’s more, it’s far easier to include the cost of planned and preventative maintenance in your budget than it is to factor in the cost of unexpected repairs because, let’s face it, you cannot estimate how much this is going to cost. Yes, I would strongly advise coupling your planned and preventive program with a responsive maintenance plan but with ongoing maintenance, you’ll find that you need to revert to your reactive approach much less often.

So, how does this benefit the future of your business? Well, it’s all about making money and being successful, isn’t it? By lowering your maintenance costs, your company will have fewer overheads which is a driving force for most people when it comes to implementing a proactive maintenance program. You’ll notice just some of the following benefits:

  • Reduced costs of immediate and unexpected repairs.
  • Optimal efficiency of your maintenance teams.
  • Fewer incurred penalties for non-compliance.
  • General reductions in the cost of day-to-day maintenance.
  • Improved ROI on longer-lasting equipment.

But much more than this, the overall value of your business will increase since you’ll have fully functional, well-maintained equipment that drives the workflow and ensures maximum efficiency. Knowing this, business managers like yourself will be able to focus their energy on other strategies to bring the company to new heights in the future.
