Woodward Using MAPCON Facility Management Software

Woodward Resource Center, in Woodward, IA, recently implemented MAPCON Computerized Maintenance Management Software to help track the maintenance of all the buildings on their expansive 600 acre campus. MAPCON will not only be utilized by the Maintenance Shop, but Housekeeping will also be tracking their inventory levels in the equipment maintenance software to prevent supplies from running out. Woodward"s IT department will be tracking their numerous computers and monitors with MAPCON's Maintenance Software and Transportation will be keeping the state owned vehicles in good repair. Even the furniture will now have a history in MAPCON as it goes from its starting location to the repair shop and back out into service again.

Woodward"s goal is to go paperless. They will use iMapcon, the Internet maintenance management module, for Resident Assistants to submit electronic work requests for their customers when things need repairing. No more lost pieces of paper. Maintenance workers will begin using PocketMAINT for mobility so they can track their work as they move from building to building and close work orders upon completion of the job. Bar coded inventory parts will speed up their repair time as they quickly check them out from any of several stockrooms around campus.

With 49 electrical panels and over 400 fire bottles to keep track of, the Woodward maintenance staff will be much more efficient with MAPCON's maintenance software.

Woodward Resource Center has a mission to support individuals with disabilities in the lives and communities they choose. Children and adults with disabilities throughout the State of Iowa are eligible to receive their support.
