Units - Overview


Maintenance / Equipment / Overview



The Maintenance Menu of ExpressMaintenance is where most of the day to day processing and reporting occurs.  Under the Maintenance Menu, users maintain Unit (Equipment) data, maintain Unit Services, generate and update work orders and generate reports.



ExpressMaintenance uses the term "Units" to refer to any item for which maintenance related data is maintained.  Originally, this was thought to primarily be large or expensive equipment.  However, our customers now maintain scheduled maintenance on many other items including buildings, motors, vehicles, tanks, antennas, employees and many other items.




The Maintenance Menu appears small because most of the options are combined in single screens for simple one-click switching access.  For example, within the Work Orders option, users can review maintenance issues that are due as well as create, assign, print and update work orders.  The Maintenance section of this help covers the following topics:
