Equipment gets damaged and needs to be repaired. Unexpected breakdowns must be addressed quickly, and they need to be tracked financially in order to forecast future spend and grant allocations. These expenses are often financed through grants, reimbursement funding, or allocated budgets.
All repairs cost money or time, and somebody’s budget has got to pay for it. Maintaining specialized equipment is complex, and keeping it safe to use and in a constant state of readiness can be made easier using good equipment management software.
Tracking all funding sources for equipment repairs is not an easy task for logistics managers or team management. Traditionally burdensome paperwork and form-based administration have to be done to keep track of these expenses, especially at the end of a funding year when all spending reports must be reviewed. Having it all in one place is not easy.
