When you’re working to keep productivity high and inefficiencies low, you think carefully about the value of your time. Every hour of uptime is a positive contribution to your bottom line. Conversely, every moment of downtime represents a significant loss.

To maximize your workforce’s productive hours, your mission-critical equipment must be operational. When your lift truck is out of commission or being repaired, your employees have no way to move product around your facility.

To make up for the absence, you might rent another vehicle or invest in more than your facility actually needs so you have a stand-in when something goes awry. While these options work when necessary, they’re less than ideal – renting a vehicle takes time and money, and it may not operate the same way as your regular trucks. Investing in more forklifts than you need takes up space and requires all the necessary maintenance tasks as your other vehicles.

Embedded Technicians Reduce Costs and Downtime

An on-site maintenance professional can cut costs and decrease downtime in your facility. By keeping a close eye on all your material-handling equipment’s health, your embedded technician will catch problems early and execute fixes as needed. If a piece of equipment breaks down, your maintenance professional can address the issue immediately because they are already prepared with the right tools and materials necessary. There’s no need to transport items to an outside shop or wait for someone to bring the right tools to your location.

Not only does this speed up the maintenance and repair timeline, but it also ensures the money you’re allocating toward the upkeep of your equipment is used as efficiently as possible. When you rely on an original equipment manufacturer’s service plan, only some of your money goes toward direct maintenance and repair tasks. There’s also time spent driving from one location to another, waiting for parts to arrive and working with technicians who are more concerned with the brands of parts rather than which parts suit you best.

Even with other in-house service models, as much as one-quarter of your spend might fund non-maintenance activities. By having an NMS technician on your team and available whenever maintenance is needed, 95 percent of your maintenance budget goes toward relevant activities. When you can increase your efficiency, your productivity levels and work order throughput both benefit, leading to lower costs and more uptime.

However, if full time is something you think would benefit your company, NMS would be happy to provide that for you. Unlike our competitors, we are more focused on pleasing you – the customer rather than the OEM. Our loyalty is with you! Because of this, each tech is custom selected for your business and their expertise is EVERYTHING. Whatever brand of equipment you use is what they’ll focus on. There is no trying to convince you to use a certain brand which is unique to us and provides you with a better experience.
