$2 million saved

APS saved $2 million in PM work led by an automation of PM work order system

In effectively utilizing Maintenance Essentials Pro, a helpful feature of the SchoolDude facilities management software system, the District realized a savings of $2 million over the last five years in its preventive maintenance program. Maintenance Essentials Pro helps M&O manage more than 70,000 yearly (86,000+ in 2015-16) work order requests and recurring tasks on one platform, increasing productivity while saving at least 30 minutes per WO and supporting efforts to reduce energy expenditures. In working closely with SchoolDude, APS has enhanced its energy initiatives by tracking energy costs and usage for all of its facilities. The District has applied these saved monies to paint classrooms, add new playgrounds, modernize schools with new technology, and more. M&O will continue to work with SchoolDude to improve efficiencies within the evolving WO software program.
