Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)

  • On May 15, 2003, the Facilities Services Department implemented FacilityCenter, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS). FacilityCenter allows Facilities Services to automate work requests from campus customers. More specifically, FacilityCenter enables corrective maintenance workflows to be streamlined and managed from a single point. University Stores uses FacilityCenter for maintenance supply purchases and associated tracking within work orders. In the future Get.Facilities will be introduced, a true web-based customer interface for submitting and tracking work requests. You can check out FacilityCenter on the web at this link www.tririga.com.
  • On January 22, 2007, Get.Facilities was implemented in the University’s residence halls to allow the Hall Directors to enter maintenance work requests electronically. This program will soon be introduced to Building Managers in academic, administrative and athletic buildings.
