Stop the Hidden Profit Killer: Expert Tips for Optimizing Heavy Construction Equipment Maintenance

START DATE:10/22/2019

Start Time:2:00 PM EDT

Duration:60 minutes

Abstract:

"When the yellow iron runs, we make money” is a known adage in heavy construction, but complex equipment maintenance, uptime and utilization challenges are a constant threat to profitability. In this webcast, leading contractors share strategies and technologies they have adopted to cut costs and downtime through a more automated, proactive approach to preventive maintenance.

These experts will also discuss how they link maintenance, scheduling/dispatching and field management workflows to optimize how they deploy, track, move and maintain their fleets.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to more accurately assess the impact of equipment downtime on profitability
  • How to take equipment uptime rates from the industry average of 60-80% to 95% or better
  • How to automate preventive maintenance, and the clear ROI argument for doing it
  • How to connect operational workflows to drive more profitable equipment maintenance and scheduling
