Limble brought efficiency to their operation because it is more than a work order system — it is an entire maintenance management software. They organized work orders by priority and location. With Limble’s mobile app giving his team all the information they needed, Rainwater can now let technicians know about emergencies near them in real-time, no matter where they are in the district.
They were able to catch up on their backlog in months – something Rainwater expected to take years – and have introduced a more efficient process. Now, each team member never has more than five or six work orders at a time, all prioritized and organized by location for efficiency.
The maintenance team at Hood River County School District has increased their efficiency, job satisfaction, and money saved in their first year. Today, the team’s total number of outstanding work orders hovers around 30 at any given time. As Rainwater said, looking back over this last year, “It has increased our efficiency by leaps and bounds!”
“It was a really easy shift for my maintenance techs to make,” Rainwater says about implementing Limble. “Before, we weren’t very technologically advanced with our work order system — we kind of went from the Stone Age to the modern age!”
