Hotel and Resort Operating Challenges
One of the choices Hotels and Resorts make is how much to spend on maintenance versus property improvements. Hotel and Resorts look for a way to balance going green, controlling labor costs and maintaining a safe environment for their guests against cosmetic changes. The choice is easier now that maintenance and asset management includes tools that enable maintenance staff to accomplish more with the same amount of resources and at the same time lengthen the useful life cycle of hotel and resorts assets.
Work Management for Hotels and Resorts
The key to an effective maintenance program is the ability to automate manual processes, plan work orders and perform regularly scheduled preventive maintenance. To accomplish, Hotels and Resorts can implement a EAM-CMMS software solution. Using EAM-CMMS software, hotel and resort management can provide more effective asset and maintenance management. In addition to more organized maintenance activity, EAM-CMMS software enables better capital analysis, the setting of system wide standard operating procedures as well as the ability to know the location and condition of all assets.

Hotel and Resorts asset and maintenance managers can set up inspections, preventive maintenance, and maintenance schedules for assets and activities such as:
- Lobby Areas
- Pools and Spa Equipment
- Laundry Services
- Plumbing and Piping
- Hotel Rooms
- Rest Rooms
- Capital Budget Analysis
