Indoor location for maintenance management

The day to day is full of small maintenance works, corrective or preventive, on which the good functioning of the commercial space depends. Cleaning, repairs of electrical and plumbing installations, small masonry works, moving equipment, gardening… A multitude of tasks (often outsourced) that require an indoor location system for maintenance management through automation and process monitoring.

Indoor location system for maintenance management

Maintaining a business space and all its staff at maximum efficiency is like keeping a high precision clock on time. A network of small parts that have to fit together and work precisely.

This is well known by the Facility Managers, who are responsible for coordinating and ensuring the smooth running and maximum profitability of the facilities and many of the services provided there. A task that involves coordinating equipment, goods, spaces and infrastructure, often mobile, so that the activity does not lose pace. Optimizing all the maintenance of a business space can also be highly profitable. For example in the industrial environment, correct maintenance can result in a saving of 80% in interventions to correct a problem.

Staff indoor location and monitoring for maintenance management

Our clients include hotels, hospitals, shopping malls, corporate centres or industrial spaces. Although their activity is diverse, from all of them we have learned how important maintenance is. On this constant and methodical work depends that a place is safe, clean and ready to meet the purposes. The list is endless:

Our clients include hotels, hospitals, shopping malls, corporate centres or industrial spaces. Although their activity is diverse, from all of them we have learned how important maintenance is. On this constant and methodical work depends that a place is safe, clean and ready to meet the purposes. The list is endless:

  • Mechanical repair work.
  • Monitoring of energy systems.
  • Maintenance of elevators or escalators.
  • Checking of air conditioning and ventilation systems.
  • Maintenance of specialized equipment (hospital devices, airport machinery, forklifts, etc.)
  • Plumbing, carpentry, electricity…
  • Adaptation of decoration.
  • Cleaning tasks of different nature.

Employee indoor location allows to improve processes, to carry out an audit of works performed and to guarantee that the facilities are up to date. In this way, production or service interruptions can be prevented.

A well-planned indoor monitoring system to achieve the greatest effectiveness

A well-planned indoor monitoring system to achieve the greatest effectiveness
Indoor geopositioning allows us to have everything under control, but our experience has shown us that it is necessary to make a suitable deployment to each company. This is a priority:

  • Establish what a company needs according to its activity and sector.
  • Not only focus on the administration of the space, but also aspire to maintain the maximum profitability of all its staff.
  • Establish a clear way to measure results and guarantee service performance.
  • To have reports that allow to clarify responsibilities in case it is necessary. As an example, according to the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, some of these maintenance activities involve dangerous aspects (electricity, work at height…). Many are carried out by subcontracted companies that are not familiar with the space. Between 15% and 20% of injuries at work happen during maintenance work.

Indoor location for employees and also for sub-contractors

Maintenance, both corrective and preventive, depends in most cases on subcontracted companies. The data shows that in France, maintenance in the industry is the most outsourced function. In Spain, maintenance subcontracting is most prominent in the service sector (70%), followed by industry and construction.

Without a doubt, opting for outsourcing has great benefits (specialization, flexibility, cost reduction…), but it also requires better follow-up. The staff is usually temporary and do not know the space and, inevitably, are outside the “business culture” of the company.

Situm MRM for workforce management

In this scenario, the best tool to audit the activities carried out is an indoor positioning and monitoring system. Our solution for workforce management through geolocation, Situm MRM, saves time and costs. It requires almost no previous investment, is very fast to deploy and provides a return on investment from the first moment.

To achieve effective monitoring, it is only necessary to provide staff with a smartphone, and they will always be located and informed. The core technology behind it is an algorithm that collects pre-existing information in buildings (magnetic fields, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi) and combines it with data from the inertial sensors of mobile phones to position the user.

Situm MRM allows work teams management through the Dashboard, a single control panel for:

  • View all monitored employees on a single screen You will know where each employee is, what activities they have performed, the routes they have taken, the time spent on each of them…
  • Receive notifications of Man Down and Panic Button alerts when the system detects them In this way, the security of all personnel will be much greater since the reaction time to a contingency is reduced exponentially.
  • Consult analytics on deployed personnel, trajectories or length of stay, among others. The information can be accessed in real time, but it is also possible to obtain objective analytics. Thus, the data becomes a transparent tool to clarify responsibilities if necessary.
  • Polygonal geofence. With this tool you can control access to areas of special importance or obtain detailed analytics of the activities or occupation of specific spaces.
