Celebrating Maintenance Heroes:

How Maintenance Teams Defined 2023

In 2023, maintenance teams across industries saw breakthroughs in transformative tech, ushering in a new era of AI and automation. Despite numerous challenges, the year marked a pivotal shift toward technology and sustainable approaches to maintenance. But that isn’t the only thing that defined the year in maintenance.

What Limble customers achieved in 2023 is a reflection of how hard maintenance teams work, the impact they have on their organizations, and the ongoing revolution occurring across the field of maintenance. In many ways, maintenance defined 2023 and we’re excited to see how this year’s successes pave the way for an even bigger 2024. 

Maintenance teams were busy

Tens of thousands of maintenance professionals using Limble were hard at work this year. It’s incredible to look back at all they’ve accomplished. While it’s hard to communicate the full scope of what maintenance teams accomplished in 2023, here are just a few examples of the scale of it all:

  • 1,776,365 parts managed (that’s the number of days in about 5,000 years)
  • 2,392,851 assets managed (in inches, that’s about 150 times around a standard 400m track)
  • 5,710,384 tasks completed (in gallons of water, that would be enough to fill about 86 Olympic-size swimming pools) 

But it isn’t just the number of assets, parts, and tasks that is impressive.  What really matters is the impact these activities have on companies, communities, and the world around us. 

Maintenance teams made a big impact on their company’s bottom line

Maintenance teams are the unsung heroes of their companies. They keep businesses running through the persistent threat of machine breakdowns and help avoid costly downtime. When they take measures to improve their own efficiency, companies can save millions. 

Significant reductions in downtime

In 2023, Limble customers reduced equipment downtime, helping their companies increase production and revenue. Maintenance teams saved a whopping $351,430,911 in downtime costs. That is over $350M saved through better preventive maintenance, faster repair times, and better maintenance preparedness overall.

Optimized inventory management

Don’t underestimate the power of good planning. Limble customers kept critical parts in stock last year – eliminating unnecessary downtime, expedited shipping fees, and last-minute store runs. Through better inventory forecasting and spare parts management, Limble customers saved $55,089,127 for their companies.

Achieving more with less

The maintenance professionals on your team are your most valuable resource. Persistent work shortages have only reinforced this fact.  

While many organizations are investing more to attain and retain workers, maintenance teams using Limble were empowered to work more efficiently, increasing productivity and reducing the need for overtime. As a result, they have saved $798,895,434 in 2023 alone through improved maintenance practices, reduced emergency overtime, and more efficient use of their technicians’ time.
