1. Choosing the Right Platform

Select a maintenance management platform (CMMS) that fits the specific needs of your retail business. This software should allow you to schedule maintenance tasks, assign responsibilities, track progress, and store maintenance histories.

For example, with Optima Retail's preventive maintenance plan, you don't have to worry about anything. We identify your maintenance needs and carry out an inventory to be able to schedule and notify you in advance of the date that it is time to carry out the maintenance. By having a 24/7 service you don't have to have the store stopped, we work outside of business hours so that it does not interfere with your sales.

2. Asset Inventory

Conducts a complete inventory of all assets that require maintenance, including equipment, tools, IT systems, and the physical infrastructure of the store. Record details such as the make, model, serial number, location, and any relevant maintenance history for each asset.

In our plan we take care of all these points so that you can dedicate yourself 100% to your work without wasting time performing the repport, defining the tasks, following up, scheduling dates and all this with a highly qualified and efficient team of technicians; With a useful and agile software for all the urgent notifications that may arise and solve them in less than 4 hours wherever you are and at any time. In addition to a satisfaction follow-up once each job has been carried out to ensure that the maintenance has been carried out with great satisfaction.

3. Definition of Maintenance Tasks

Develop a detailed list of all preventive and corrective maintenance tasks required for each asset. Include the recommended frequency, task-specific instructions, and any parts or tools needed.

4. Scheduling and Assignment

Use the selected software to schedule all maintenance tasks and assign them to team members or external contractors. Be sure to balance the workload and consider staff availability.

5. Team Training

Train your team in the use of the tracking system. This includes how to access and update the status of tasks, how to document work performed, and how to report unexpected problems or corrective maintenance needs.

6. Integration with Other Systems

If possible, integrate your maintenance tracking system with other management systems you use, such as inventory management or human resource management systems. This can help automate maintenance scheduling based on asset usage or staff availability.

7. Monitoring and Analysis (Quality Department)

Establish regular routines to review maintenance progress, including task completion and any issues identified during maintenance. Identify trends, such as recurring problems with certain equipment, that may indicate the need for adjustments to the maintenance schedule.

Remember that Optima Retail is more than a service company, it is a proactive, young and agile company designed to solve maintenance problems anytime and anywhere. We maintain everything your retail stores may need.

No matter what type of breakdown or service you may need, nothing is out of reach.

8. Continuous Improvement

Use the information collected through the tracking system to continuously improve your maintenance processes. This may include adjustments to maintenance frequencies, changes in work procedures, or decisions about equipment replacements.

9. Communication

Maintain open and regular communication with the team about the status of maintenance and any changes to procedures or schedules. Effective communication is key to ensuring the cooperation and commitment of all involved.

Implementing an effective tracking system requires an initial commitment to selecting the right system and training the team, but the long-term benefits, such as reduced downtime, extended asset life, and overall improvement in operational efficiency, are significant.

At Optima Retail we continue to grow so that the human factor and contact with your team is fluid and you always have someone on the other end who knows your name, who you are, listens to you and solves any type of incident.
