Track COVID-19 related maintenance

Your staff is devoting many hours to cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting your facilities to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Use Asset Essentials to help calculate the total time and all COVID-19 related work together by creating a Work Type.


Allocate transactions to a COVID-19 budget and cost center

Do you have a budget set aside for all the COVID-19 related work that needs to be performed? If so, use Budgets and Cost Centers in Asset Essentials to help you manage those specific expenses and keep track of the remaining funds. You can create a COVID-19 Cost Center that will be tied to your Budget and allow you to track and group your maintenance costs on work orders.


Communicate and document all COVID-19 items

In trying times like these it is important to communicate and document everything, and Asset Essentials can help you with this. Communicate by using the Asset Essentials Messages section on the Dashboard to communicate important COVID-19 instructions and updates to your staff. Document by tracking COVID-19 related work with appropriate connections in the Type of Work and Planning sections, such as Work Type and Cost Center.


Utilize task books for new COVID-19 procedures

Use the Asset Essentials Task Books feature to document the tasks your staff should perform on a regular occurrence based on CDC guidelines to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Having these tasks listed in Task Books makes it easier when creating multiple COVID-19 related PM Schedules.
