Whether you’re looking to make fewer trips to the gas station or you want to use less paper, Maintenance job Software helps you achieve your eco friendly targets.
The benefits of having a more Eco-Friendly Field Service Businesses
The impact a business has on the environment is becoming a key issue. Apart from the negative reputation and PR implications of being wasteful with resources and harmful to the environment, there’s some serious impacts when it comes to a businesses’ bottom line.
Use less fuel
The rising cost of energy and fuel has been a key topic in 2022. Conflict between Russia and Ukraine put a serious pressure on gas and oil prices resulting in the highest rise in petrol and diesel prices we’ve seen in a long time.
The implications this has for Field Service and Maintenance businesses is significant. Any wasted journey or repeated visit has become more expensive.
Maintenance Job Software provides route mapping to ensure the most cost effective route is taken to each job and more visibility over team member location and availability means more jobs can get completed, maximizing the capacity of your team.
Longer Asset Life Cycles
Your customers make significant investments into their assets. Whether you’re working in the HVAC service and repair industry, the Medical Device Maintenance business or even Pool and Spa cleaning services, the return on investment for equipment is a key concern for your customers.
Regular maintenance and servicing extends the lifecycle assets. A planned preventive maintenance schedule ensures potential breakdowns or faults are spotted early and fixed before they potentially damage the equipment.
Maintenance Job Software allows servicing businesses to easily set up PPM schedules, view upcoming service dates and share more useful information with their field teams to ensure the life cycle of an asset is as long as possible.
Go Paper Free
If you’re running a service business and you’re still using paper forms, it’s really time to wake up and join the 21st century. Apart from the wasted time you spend typing up notes, recovering lost paperwork or notes and the delays in raising invoices it’s wasteful and unnecessary.
The easiest step you can take towards going green with your maintenance business is replacing tatty, messy paperwork with Digital Mobile Forms. These forms help your team gather details of a job or complete inspection reports on their smartphone. When the job is complete the customer signs off the work straight from the device and it syncs with the office. No paper, no mistakes, no delays.
Gain a competitive advantage
Only 11% of businesses measure their carbon footprint or even consider it in their business plan. As NetZero becomes a more significant influence on which businesses can tender for work or attract investment, those who consider their impact on the environment will already be ahead of the game.
What does Net Zero mean?
Environmentally aware businesses are making a commitment to cut greenhouse emissions to as close to zero as possible by ensuring their business does not create excess carbon emissions and they put procedures in place to offset what they do produce. They are doing this by:
- Improving the efficiency of the equipment they operate
- Ensure the buildings they use are more energy efficient
- Switching to more eco-friendly energy sources
- The use of electric vehicles
This is a global effort and with more and more nations agreeing to net-zero pledges including China, USA and the European Union it’s expected to play a significant role in the business sector too.
