University of Pennsylvania Health System
“As a hospital, it is vital that we pass our tri-annual inspection. Thanks to MAPCON, we were able to stay on track with our preventive maintenance and to report on equipment history without subjecting the inspectors to… mounds of paperwork.
These two factors were key to our department passing inspection which contributed to the entire hospital achieving accredidation with honors for the first time in the hospital's history.”

“We use MAPCON because it is easy to use. It is ideal for keeping track of our equipment maintenance and records. We use MAPCON to generate all of our work orders for maintenance at our complex. We then can easily retrieve the data and use it for billing our various departments.
It was easy to implement. I feel its greatest advantage is that it is User Friendly.”

“We've been using MAPCON for 12 years. I am constantly instructed to evaluate different maintenance software packages because a school district/government agency uses it. I have only seen 1 or 2 maintenance packages that come close to MAPCON in design, quality, and flexibility. But their cost was 6 and 8 times the cost of MAPCON. Why would we change?
iMapcon (Internet Module) saves us 30 man-hours per week. The process begins in the schools. All 150 schools/sites are inter-connected by a WAN. And thru this WAN, the office manager, principal, or anyone else that is trained, will log into iMapcon and request a work order. This work order is then reviewed by our staff personnel. If it meets our criteria, then a work order is created by pressing a single button, otherwise an e-mail is sent back to the site explaining what is wrong.
The sites can also see what work order or work request is still open for just their location.
Our high school engineers also use it (iMapcon) to find certain inventory items within our 70 stockrooms.
Customizations to MAPCON include Employee Time Accountability, Freon tracking, Warranty tracking, Budget tracking via 15,000 different state funding codes, and many other small adjustments to match our special needs.
MAPCON provides us tighter management of limited state funds, the ability to instantly comply with new Preventive Maintenance Requirements, and the ability to track every work order, every man-hour, every inventory item, and every piece of equipment within the school district.”

“We now have the capability of assisting the front-line supervisor in managing his maintnence needs. (MAPCON's) features enables us to fill (our) needs accurately, quickly, and now without having to keypunch it all over again.
Having been a client for 10 years now, I am pleased with the progress you have made - both as a company and with the software we continue to rely on daily.
Congratulations on your continued growth and development of the most productive tool we've ever used!

West Des Moines Community School District
Manager Bob Young is tracking labor and maintenance for 18 school buildings, stadiums, and other facilities located throughout West Des Moines, Iowa (which makes him MTI's closest neighbor!)
To help track labor costs per location and stay on top of the preventive maintenance work, Bob has modified Mapcon to allow Principal's to sign-off on work requests created over iMapcon (optional Internet Module).
A typical scenario is for head custodians to create work requests, and the building administrator signs-off on them. One individual in Operations converts the requests to work orders, which the Maintenance Supervisor then approves and dispatches to a maintenance employee.
Bob explains further: "We have 3 maintenance employees that are using PocketMaint (optional handheld PDA Module). Two of these employees work at all of our facilities and the other one is stationed at one building all of the time. The employees download their work orders, enter notes and time cards as they complete the work, and then enter completion dates and their names and upload this information back to Mapcon."
"We're using less paper now because of PocketMaint. Fewer phoned-in work requests because of iMapcon. Facility administrators are more aware of the maintenance work that is being performed at their building because of signing-off on the work requests."
"We have really appreciated the friendly, knowledgeable, and timely help we have gotten from the folks in Customer Service! The training sessions are also very helpful."
"I like the 'can do' attitude that everyone at MAPCON (MTI) has."
