    How to make your maintenance reports in 1 minute?

    Maintenance technicians, you often lack time and information to finish your interventions on site successfully. Not only you rush from a site to another to manage the alerts, but in addition to that, you're asked on site to manage urgently equipments you don't usually handle! To top it all off, you always lack the right instruction manual, the failure history, the maintenance log, etc. essential for a successful intervention. As a result, you lose time during every intervention on site and your diagnosis leave much to be desired.

    Facing these obstacles, don't become overwhelmed by accumulating papers or by falling behind. Indeed, a large number of you maintenance technicians spend their evenings completing unfinished maintenance reports.

    Like many others professionals who have been facing these problems, our team decided to test Facility Hero, a free and innovative solution working both on computers and smartphones (Android and Apple). Our feedback is unanimously positive; and we underline the efficiency and the rapidity of this application. In addition to its free numerous options offered, we also liked the fact that everything you need is there, with you, wherever you are. In our opinion, with Facility Hero it's simply impossible to forget or to lose anything!

    For all these reasons, we recommend testing this application without delay; it is a complete electronic maintenance log, with the facility datasheet, failure history, servicing technicians, essential instruction manuals, etc. Available for free, this app will allow you to save a lot of time for your next intervention report!

    If just like us you can't wait to make your maintenance reports in 1 minute, on site, without typing a single word on a keyboard, click here:
