Just to preface, I am not a facility manager myself. Instead, I have been in the trenches of working right next to facility managers and technicians. Now I work with facility managers to help improve their work flow process.
As a facilities management leader, knowing the status of your assets, where they are located, and who is in charge of equipment repairs are essential to your role. Proper equipment organization at your facility can improve efficiency, maximize your bottom line, put more time in your hands, and prevent equipment breakdowns before they occur.
