About this session:

Selecting a computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) system became a priority for Grand Prairie Independent School District (GPISD). GPISD employs 4,198 people and serves 29,000 students on 38 campuses. With more than 40 buildings, a high number of maintenance and repair tasks were requested including: irrigation, plumbing, refrigeration, heating and ventilation, grounds issues, locks and keys, and moving requests.nAfter adding the eMaint CMMS, GPISD saved time, decreased work requests from 700 per year to 584, and reduced inventory items from 10,000 inventory line items (with multiple SKUs for the same part) to 2,987 items.

1. Clarify how important buy-in from all stakeholders is when selecting software that may be used by many people.
2. Discuss how planning and personnel training is key for a smooth implementation.
3. Review system capabilities that are important for a CMMS, such as system customization and on-site training.
4. Verify how automated inventor y control and work order management simplifies labor scheduling and decreases labor costs.
