Read on to see how we’re revolutionizing multisite property management through the eyes of our Affiliates.
When it comes to business expenses, many companies overlook the importance of preventative maintenance and don’t concern themselves with repairs until there are visible signs of damage. While you'll spend less money in the short run, ignoring preventative maintenance and waiting until issues become problematic to address them is costlier in the long run.
For example, you might be tempted to ignore a roof that's in poor condition, but if you wait until you notice a leak it'll be more expensive to repair. A leak can rot wooden beam or even leak into your facility and damage equipment, leading to even more repairs.
