Faced with red tape from executives and business owners, maintenance managers may find themselves unable to optimally perform their roles. What usually happens is that reactive maintenance becomes the modus operandi of the organisation as a matter of budget – despite heightened stress levels, expense to the enterprise, and a cessation of operations. Here are some arguments for the case of regular, outsourced maintenance to place before your business’s decision- makers.


Don’t hold thumbs that your equipment will simply keep working. If your business has conducted reactive maintenance in the past, you will know the effect this has on your operations. When it comes to office HVAC and other systems, scheduled maintenance could be viewed as a matter of
convenience. In the case of critical machinery, the uninterrupted running of your business could be on the line.


Assess the benefits. Budget often lies at the heart of maintenance decisions. However, in conducting a true assessment of benefits, one needs to look at the cost of deferred maintenance. This means looking holistically at the cost of staff and equipment in the case of in-house maintenance teams, as well as the inefficient running and reduced lifespan of unmaintained equipment. The cost of routine maintenance should also be weighed against the potential cost of extensive repairs and replacement.


Outsource for saved time and resources. Maintenance tools and equipment, the space to house them on your premises, the staff and members of management required to manage them are all added burdens on your business. In addition to this, the benefits of maintenance are difficult to assess if its not being conducted correctly. This means your management team need to keep an eye on worker productivity and the up-to- date training of technicians to achieve the maximum benefit, whereas independent maintenance companies have experts who receive training as part of their jobs – giving the added advantage of new industry trends and knowledge to their clients.
