How to Calculate Asset Downtime

With UpKeep, you can track the downtime of your equipment. On our Business Plus Plan, we have the ability to change the Status of our Assets between operational and not operational (we can also create custom off-line statuses as well).

When the status changes to not operational, our system will begin adding that downtime to give you an uptime percentage so your team can evaluate the health of your asset.
