Managing Preventative Maintenance

This is our maintenance dashboard alert list. It's part of our preventative maintenance tracking feature.

Both during the busy season and outside of it, it is challenging to stay on top of preventative maintenance and repairs.

You try to collect all the latest information needed and store it by memory or an excel table, but the same communication and data collection issues still remain.

You need current hour meters and work orders.

You get frustrated when you need a piece of equipment that requires service. Worse yet, a piece gets missed in the shuffle of mobilizations and breaks down due to missed PM.

There are several preventative maintenance software programs available, but most do not truly integrate with the rest of your daily operations such as project/equipment locations, dispatching, and crew scheduling.

Keeping track of maintenance for your equipment doesn’t have to be difficult. With MaintainVO, tracking and scheduling for preventative maintenance has never been easier.

You can create automated preventative maintenance schedules and alerts, based on customizable hour meters and set dates and durations.

You can easily integrate with any GPS telematics data from multiple fleets with TelematicsVO, meaning all smart and “dumb” equipment can be aggregated into one simple platform.

Additionally, you can create work orders and set up email or text notifications to responsible parties of upcoming preventative maintenance work.

Equipment work order history is automatically saved and can be reviewed at any time. Daily and weekly maintenance reports are available for easy review (and can be emailed too).

Your mechanics have custom user dashboards that show open and closed work orders as well as equipment technical details and history. This creates a to do list with priorities and at the same time creates a complete historical record for your specific equipment.

Don’t let your mechanics time and knowledge go to waste, create detailed reports that help everybody from the parts runner to the owner have the information you need when and where you need it most.

About IVO

Getting started- What construction software is right for my company?

Our software is mobile-friendly and can be easily accessed and viewed from any device.

Complications, issues, and stress are an undeniable component to the construction industry. Your projects don’t always go as smoothly as planned. There’s an array of possible issues- such as losing track of important information, falling behind on maintenance and repair, difficulties with equipment tracking, confusing employee schedules, delays and missed deadlines. When your construction site is unorganized, nobody benefits, and time and money are wasted.

Many companies like yours employ construction software to try and mitigate these issues. Popular uses for construction software are bidding and estimating, job costing and accounting, or operations and equipment management.

Many software platforms lack equal access to information for all users, and include too much unnecessary information, which in turn creates a disorganized and misinformed workforce. They may claim to instantly solve your problems, but leave out how complex this process is with their software.

Software platforms such as HCSS and B2W are different from IVO with specialties such as bidding and cost association with each project. These platforms make a database and build a spreadsheet based on project costs- including different pay rates, projects, installations and supplier quotes. Bidding material for labor cost is a specialty of these companies. Currently, we have no plans to compete with this sort of bidding software and we recommend companies such as HCSS and B2W.

Shown below is a table comparing the products of IVO and other competing software. This data is helpful when comparing the current abilities of IVO to HCSS and B2W.

IVO is all about improving operations and controlling productions, and while we do not provide bidding software, we are easily able to work with third party systems that do, and can be customized to what your company needs.

In addition, we work with all major equipment manufacturers such as Caterpillar, John Deere, and Komatsu, as well as third party GPS telematic add on systems (Trimble, Samsara, etc.). While we don’t provide GPS hardware, we work with these systems to aggregate the information and provide it in one easy to use platform. We want companies to trust the data we provide, which is why access to immediate information is so important.

We understand these issues, and with over 25 years of combined construction experience, we are here to help. We provide a single source of truth for all employees to understand and refer to. When everyone has up to date access to the information they need from one single source, everyone is able to make informed decisions across all offices and sites.

We specialize in keeping track of project and equipment locations and aggregating data to keep up to date information on preventative maintenance schedules, dispatching, and entering hour meters. When equipment isn’t properly organized and tracked, critical project information is delayed, further complicating projects and construction management. IVO puts information into the user’s hands that will help them make the right decisions from anywhere- in an office or on a construction site.

By using IVO’s modern web-based software structure, a historical record for all past movements and locations of all equipment can be referred to at any point. This includes information on who used it. Where it was located. When it was used. This makes it easy to keep track of repairs, and double check for any errors in communication.

At IVO, we believe everyone from the lowboy driver to the owner deserves the information they need to succeed right at their fingertips, and it is our goal to work with every customer to make this a reality. Request a demo using the button below, and comment any questions you may have!
