Go Green, Go Paperless: Eco-friendly CMMS Solutions with iWorQ

Hailey BrimhalliWorQ News

Earth Day serves as an annual reminder to reflect on how we can preserve, protect, and care for our planet, while minimizing our environmental impact. One way that local governments can reduce their carbon footprints is by having their public works and community development departments transition from paper-based management systems to CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) solutions. This not only accelerates efficiency and productivity but also represents a significant step towards environmental sustainability. Here’s how CMMS technology can help municipalities modernize their processes and “go green.” 

Reduce Energy Consumption 

When your assets are well-maintained and run smoothly, they consume less energy. Consuming excess energy can have detrimental effects on the planet. Regular assessment of asset health and performance is critical to decreasing unnecessary energy consumption and extra costs. Consistent preventative maintenance extends the life of your assets, reducing the need to purchase new equipment and parts. Keeping track of maintenance work and schedules with a paper-based management system can be challenging. Managing your assets with a CMMS solution saves time, money, and the environment. Schedule optimized preventative maintenance and organize your inventory iWorQ’s management software.  

iWorQ’s software is cloud-based, keeping your data secure in one location. Whether you are on your phone, tablet, or computer, you can access your information anytime, anywhere. Your public works and community development teams can make real-time updates to information remotely, reducing travel between work sites and cutting down on carbon emissions. 

Mitigate Waste 

Paper-based management systems can sometimes lead to ineffective resource allocation. Misplaced documents, incomplete records, and manual data entry can result in miscommunication between teams, excess or insufficient inventory, and wasted time and resources. iWorQ’s cloud-based management software helps enhance your workflows and maintain sustainability efforts. View your assets and inventory all at once, either from the main dashboard or on a digital map. Conduct inspections and maintenance work in advance to ensure your assets are operating at peak efficiency. With iWorQ Systems, you can guarantee that your resources will not go to waste. 

Save the Trees

Paper production often leaves negative ramifications on the environment, such as deforestation. Forests are vital to absorbing carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. Deforestation disrupts ecosystems and threatens biodiversity. Traditional paper-based management systems also involve a lot of manual and mental labor. Paper work orders, invoices, and citizen complaints can quickly pile up and get cluttered. This can result in lost information, confusion, and headaches. By converting to a cloud-based CMMS solution like iWorQ, you use less paper, meaning fewer trees. This streamlines your operations and benefits the environment – it’s a win-win!
