If you don’t have a maintenance and repair (M&R) program at your facility, chances are you’re spending a lot of money on reactionary measures. This reactive, as opposed to proactive approach to facility maintenance, means a lot of money is lost to emergency maintenance. According to Facilities Net, the cost of emergency breakdowns annually is in the billions. How can your organization avoid this? By focusing on the cause of facility maintenance issues, not the symptoms. This type of approach will allow you to nip any potential problems in the bud instead of waiting until it’s too late to address them. Here are some ways you can shift to this type of mindset and start saving money today.
