Creating solutions

In Asset Essentials you can create solutions for a problem that is associated to a PM work order. Solutions have a set of actions that the technician would typically perform for the problem. On the work order, the technician can select the solution from the Action Taken field, which automatically populates the actions created for that solution. *Note: The feature below is only available to clients who have purchased Asset Essentials Enterprise.
