LOS ANGELES, CASeptember 17—The winners of the first-ever UpKeep Awards are in! First, thank you to all of the nominators who took the time to submit their friends, colleagues, and teammates for consideration. Your recognition of your nominee’s hard work continues to inspire us, and we’re so proud to support you in honoring them. Second, this group of nominees was especially impressive because of the breadth of industries in which they work. To name a few – manufacturing, food production, hospitals, facilities, hotels, are all sustained by the list of nominees below.

Today, we are ecstatic to announce the winners and the grand winners of each of our three award categories: the Biggest Impact Award, the Up-and-Comer in Maintenance and Reliability Award, and the Most Innovative Reliability Program Award. 

Biggest Impact Award:

This award is for the individual in your community who has made the biggest impact. Impact can mean many things, but this nominee should have made a difference on a business, another person, or the community surrounding them. The Biggest Impact Made Award was given to those who have created a lasting impact on the processes and people that they touch in their role.

Up-and-Comer in Maintenance and Reliability Award: 

This award is for the individual in your community who has immense potential. The Up-and-Comer in Maintenance and Reliability is someone who is at the beginning of their career or maybe someone who is on the cusp of career development. Either way, this person shows promise for advancement and success.

Most Innovative Reliability Program Award:

This award is for the team who has embarked on an innovative reliability program this year. The Most Innovative Reliability Program Award goes to a group that is challenging norms – internal and external to its company – and exemplifying the desire to improve processes. 

UpKeep was founded in 2014 by our CEO, Ryan Chan. The CMMS he used while working as a process development engineer in a manufacturing plant was clunky and inefficient, so he learned how to code and created the first version of UpKeep. UpKeep is an innovative CMMS solution that streamlines workflows and provides the data and insights needed for maintenance teams to become heroes. Today, UpKeep is a team of 100+ people from around the world who are dedicated to empowering maintenance teams to revolutionize their businesses by making a maintenance software that is easier to use and adopt than ever before.
