eSSETS, a leader in cloud-based asset, facilities, and maintenance management solutions, announced today the addition of a new client; Ozarks Technical Community College (OTC). Headquartered in Springfield, MO, OTC is in the middle of rapid growth and expansion with 5 locations, 2 new buildings, and a host of facility maintenance challenges. After extensive evaluation, eSSETS’ enterprise asset management (EAM) system was chosen over traditional CMMS to overhaul OTC’s maintenance needs.

Triggered by rapid growth and a reliance on outdated systems and methods, facilities management at OTC recognized the need for a professional solution. According to Rick Taylor, Director of Facilities and Grounds, “The day-to-day operation of plumbing, electrical, HVAC, and fleet assets were being tracked in an antiquated system with a heavy dependence on spreadsheets and manual work orders.” He adds: “We felt that we had to improve our planning and preventative maintenance process in order to save cost.”

As a state funded entity, OTC is required to comprehensively review all capital expenditures. After a long evaluation process, the benefits of eSSETS’ EAM system were compelling. The OTC solution incorporates an integrated approach to asset and maintenance management compared to other systems. Paul Roberts, CEO at eSSETS notes, “We are thrilled to be working with OTC, and look forward to helping them reach their goals. Our EAM system will allow OTC to capture vital information on equipment in a seamless, cloud-based, mobile, all-in-one approach to asset management.” He adds, “The EAM design maximizes preventative maintenance planning by controlling multiple tasks collectively, instead of responding to issues when it’s too late.”

For the customer, it’s about prevention vs. reaction. OTC is now able to take advantage of warranty coverages, cut down on paper and drive times, route technicians more effectively, and ultimately optimize everyone’s time and money. eSSETS and OTC have reached the ultimate goal of more efficient use of tight resources on a limited budget.
