With so many options available, making the decision on which technology to implement can often seem like a daunting task. We're here to help.

We’ve created a checklist of top priorities to consider when assessing if the solution is the right one for you.
  1. Is the asset maintenance technology a modern cloud based solution?

    Create a flexible work environment and grow at scale by implementing a solution that can be used on the go.

  2. Will the system make the life of technicians that much easier out in the field

    Implementing technology that has the ability to work offline and online, means technicians can be more efficient on the job.

  3. Will the system improve my presentation to clients including reports, portals, quotes and more?

    Build trust with clients by giving them access to a beautiful portal they will actually use and access reports, quotes, invoices, defects, and even visualise spend and test results.

  4. Will the system help with identifying defects, then improve the defect quote conversion to improve your bottom line?

    Choose a solution that helps you capture defects, convert them into beautiful-rich quotes, and manage the repairs process with ease.

  5. Will the system eliminate double handling and help my team grow?

    By choosing a flexible and easy-to-use system, customisable templates, fields, asset types and routines will eliminate double handling and grow your business.

  6. Will the system provide more transparency to management to allow for better, more informed decisions?

    A more transparent system will allow you to make data-driven decisions with real-time insights into job activity and business performance whenever you need it. Report on profitability across individual contracts, clients, tasks, sites and divisions.

Other key points to consider when implementing any technology solution are:
  1. Understanding the problem and what you are trying to fix

    It’s important the technology aligns with your long term goals, rather than just fixing short-term issues. By mapping out challenges and problems you’re facing, you’ll have a better understanding of what you need. Be sure to speak with your team to understand their frustrations and goals also!

  2. Do your research

    Be sure to visit review sites such as Capterra and G2 to get a clear understanding of the different technologies out there. It’s also really important to thoroughly investigate a potential technology vendors website, while exploring their resource centre in depth.

  3. Book in a discovery call with potential vendors

    Discovery calls are a great way to understand more about the technology you’re considering, and to understand how potential vendors can work with you to achieve your goals. You can book a discovery call with us here.

  4. Be open to the process

    You’ll never learn if you don’t listen. By being open to demos, conversations, and reading material, you’ll be able to find the technology that best suits your needs.

  5. Listen to your peers

    We trust our peers more than anyone. That’s why it’s so important you include them in your decision making process. Reach out to them and ask them about their personal experience, or be sure to check out organisations case studies to get an understanding of their experiences.
