by Brianna Crandall — January 20, 2017 — UpKeep Maintenance Management, a startup in mobile-first facilities management software, has just announced a complete redesign of the company’s Web application. It is available immediately for UpKeep’s thousands of current users to help streamline their maintenance workflow process.
With the new release, current users will see a drastic new update that highlights the most important items from a day-to-day basis. The new design also comes with additional features including a new calendar for viewing and scheduling work orders, and integrations with hundreds of different business software tools through Zapier, making UpKeep Maintenance Management more capable than ever to meet businesses’ needs, says UpKeep.
“This is the first major redesign of UpKeep’s Web application, that we believe will lead to millions of maintenance people being able to easily access their work on the go,” says the founder and CEO of UpKeep, Ryan Chan.
UpKeep Maintenance Management Software – CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) is a task management tool startup for facilities maintenance teams. UpKeep is targeting the 9.9 million maintenance workers in the United States alone to make their work more productive and change the way facilities maintenance requests are made and received. The company’s primary focus is on making technology easier to use for field technicians so they can access their work on-the-go.
Charlie Kleine, coordinator of Repairs and Maintenance from Chick-fil-A, has mentioned that UpKeep’s service is “top notch from the beginning.” UpKeep is currently going through rapid expansion and is optimistic about growth in 2017.
UpKeep’s founder, Ryan Chan, was an engineer at a chemical manufacturing plant and saw the maintenance techs using pen and paper to track their tasks and record field data. The old desktop software they had been given by their upper management had a very difficult-to-use interface, so they reverted to pen/paper and manually entering the data into Excel. He decided there had to be a better way for maintenance teams to work together and communicate — so he quit his job, learned to code, and built UpKeep.
