Asset maintenance planning

Regular asset maintenance is a necessity in many industries. It is enforced by legislation, mandated by the manufacturer, and helps prevent failures and downtime caused by breakdowns. Aptien makes asset maintenance planning easier by helping you plan and confirm all maintenance activities.

  • allows you to confirm the execution of maintenance activities

Setting up a maintenance plan for any asset  

You can set up a maintenance plan individually for different types of assets. When you create your maintenance plan, you set up individual maintenance activities in one of three options:

  • maintenance activities common to all assets. in the records  
  • maintenance activities common to a specific type of asset (e.g. gas boilers, electrical equipment)
  • an individual maintenance plan for a specific piece of property only

A clear annual maintenance plan

The annual maintenance activity calendar helps you to plan, giving you an overview of what maintenance activities are coming up so you can, for example, better plan for ordering them.
