Care home maintenance checklist: new digital tool allows care providers to manage repairs, maintenance requests and assets all in one place

Do you still manage and track your care home maintenance operations on paper? Are you searching for effective, simple, and easy-to-use maintenance management software? 

Care providers spend endless hours managing maintenance operations on paper, including document filing, printing and filling in order forms. When care providers manage maintenance operations on paper, they can become lost or misplaced, which makes managing and tracking tasks difficult. Furthermore, conducting an audit can be a nightmare; sifting through reams of paper to find all the maintenance and cleaning records can take time and effort.  

Preventing deterioration in your organisation and keeping premises safe and presentable requires an effective maintenance strategy, plan and process. All construction and maintenance work on premises must be conducted safely and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
