How is the MEX maintenance software used?
MEX helps us stay on top of all our regular maintenance activities by allowing us to schedule work through Preventative Maintenance and also effectively capture work that has been completed. Maintenance requests brought up by our tenants can be easily and quickly filtered according to the severity of the issue, then assigned to and carried out by our technicians on the job before the issue gets worse.
Our Asset Register is structured in a way that allows our technicians to easily identify and locate the assets that they have been asked to work on.
Within this structure, MEX holds the maintenance history of all work completed on all the facilities we manage. From a whole building down to individual rooms, the items in the rooms, fire extinguishers, alarm systems and to the vehicles stationed at each site. MEX also gives us the ability to track our assets as they are moved from site to site.
As we employ a number of contractors to carry out maintenance tasks on site, we rely on the Contractor portal in MEX to allow individual contractors to access the information of the task they are carrying out.
Why did you decide to host your data with MEX?
We operate out of three different sites, one in Sydney and two in Lisarow (Central Coast) in New South Wales, and therefore needed a way to access our MEX system from multiple locations.
Instead of taking this task on, setting up and paying for the IT infrastructure across these three sites, we turned to the MEX Data Hosting service to give our users the ability to access to our MEX database when they need to.
How long have you been hosting your data with MEX?
We have been using the MEX Data Hosting service for over six years now. In that time, the MEX Support team has been a pleasure to work with. Whenever we have had an issue, we are given prompt answers and advise from the team. Any maintenance carried out on the MEX Data Hosting service is advised of well in advance. We are very happy with the service as everything is working well and to our satisfaction.
