The newest version of software created for facility personnel to plan, schedule, and track maintenance management activities, including resources materials, labor hours, and costs, is available. Used with WindowsÂ®-based pocket PCs, facility managers can use FacilityManager 3.0 to send tasks to their employees' hand-held devices, outlining the items or areas that need to be checked. Then the hand-held devices are used to scan the barcodes at specific areas, conduct and record maintenance information on the spot by performing customized tasks that are prompted by the software, and upload the information to a central PC database. A new feature of this version is the ability to associate each checkpoint with a specific department. Other new features include more flexible inspection scheduling and work orders that display how much the maintenance task will cost, based on the required labor and parts.
