The Benefits of MainBoss for Presidents and CEOs

From the perspective of a CEO, here's how MainBoss addresses your maintenance pains:

More reliable operations
Well-maintained equipment keeps running. Poorly-maintained equipment can break down. In a manufacturing context, breakdowns cause production delays and lost revenue; in a facility, they interfere with smooth operations and annoy everybody who's affected. MainBoss makes it easier to maintain equipment proactively, finding potential problems before they turn into real headaches.
Wouldn't it be nice if you never had to worry about missing a production deadline or irritating a client because of equipment breakdown?
Increased efficiency and profitability
Better-running equipment also means your people are more productive. Workers don't sit around waiting for machinery to get repaired.
Wouldn't it be nice if your workers could simply do what they were paid to do, because all their equipment was working properly?
Reduced and reliable maintenance costs
Preventive maintenance is cheaper to do than trying to fix something after it's broken. Moreover, preventive maintenance costs are predictable; they stay on budget. Repair costs are always wild cards: maybe you'll be lucky, maybe you won't. The less you depend on luck, the better.
Wouldn't it be nice if you knew what maintenance would cost...and it was less than you're paying now?

Compliance with regulations and standards
Standards (like ISO 9000) and the laws of various jurisdictions may require your organization to document its maintenance activities. MainBoss can record all the information you need for complying with such rules.
Wouldn't it be nice if a tool for complying with regulations and standards was actually good for your business?
Reduced liability risk
Better maintenance means greater safety for everyone who comes onto your premises. Furthermore, if you do find your company involved in a liability action, the information stored in MainBoss provides strong evidence to prove that you've done everything you were supposed to. Your MainBoss records can establish that you haven't been negligent in performing required maintenance. In fact, some insurance companies charge lower premiums to organizations that have a CMMS, because liability pay-outs are less likely.
It's important to note that many jurisdictions have toughened up laws imposing criminal penalties for certain types of negligence. An accident due to poor maintenance might send people to jail...and that includes upper echelons of management if they aren't sufficiently diligent in making sure maintenance gets done correctly.
Wouldn't it be nice to have an extra layer of protection against being sued...or going to prison?
Satisfied customers
This one is for companies whose livelihood depends on providing maintenance to customers (e.g. property management companies). MainBoss makes sure that customer complaints don't fall between the cracks, and that problems are dealt with in a timely manner.
Wouldn't it be nice if no one ever called you to complain, and customers were happy to renew their contracts with your company?
By the way, remember that you're a customer of your own maintenance department. Don't you want a safe hassle-free work environment for yourself?
Manage by knowledge: reduce surprises
The bottom line is that MainBoss offers greater knowledge to you and your people. Greater knowledge means better information for making decisions. Those directly involved with maintenance can do their jobs better. Everybody else can do their jobs better too, because everything works the way it's supposed to. You can allocate personnel and resources with confidence, because you'll have fewer nasty surprises.
Wouldn't it be nice if you never had to worry about maintenance again?
