About the client
The client was facing issues with its overall maintenance management strategy. It had a reactive approach rather than a proactive one. In fact, the number of reactive work orders was almost three times more than the scheduled preventive maintenance ones.
Addressing the maintenance requirements of such a vast educational facility required cutting-edge asset management software that could help the university to timely respond to requests.
Being a partner of TMA Systems for more than 25 years, the university was more than willing to adopt its latest solutions. While WebTMA had always helped the university achieve its targets, an update would take its operations to the next level. To this effect, the new WebTMA7 solution provided the university with a revolutionary work order management system. It allowed facility managers to easily create both reactive work orders and preventive maintenance work orders that could be seamlessly assigned to the appropriate personnel and teams.
WebTMA7 also provided real-time visibility and tracking of the status and progress of work orders. This gave facility managers more scope to make data-driven decisions. The simple and easy-to-use interface of the software minimized the learning curve for new users. They could use WebTMA7 on various devices (both desktop and mobile) as per their respective roles and requirements across the sprawling campus space.
Finally, the comprehensive reporting and analytics capabilities helped track KPIs such as costs, work order histories, and completion times – all of which further optimized maintenance processes and ensured the move towards a more proactive facility management program.
When it comes to TMA Systems, you can talk to them about your particular needs and they’re always willing to listen to your suggestions, which oftentimes make it into the product.

The integration of WebTMA7 into WMU’s infrastructure had a marked benefit on the previously oversized number of reactive work orders. Following the software implementation, there was nearly a three-fold reduction in reactive work orders compared to the pre-WebTMA7 environment. Besides, WebTMA7 also provided several other marked benefits that were critical to establishing a truly proactive maintenance management program for the university:
