Use Case: Facility Management

Your facilities get used, a lot. Your assets wear down. Things break, and when it happens, you need a reporting system that makes it easier to manage and complete those reports.

The issues used to be reported by the facility users to the management company through phone calls. After receiving the call, the management company goes to the site to check the issue, and creates a file by using Excel when they get back to the office.

With the success of mobile devices and mobile internet, lots of (productivity) apps exist for navigation, calendars and management of tasks. But still organisations plan and optimize their staff’s (daily/weekly) schedules manually, with spreadsheets and based on experience. Optimizing a single person’s tasks is already difficult, a team’s schedule is even harder. There is a lot of potential to improve productivity and save costs. And at the same time this will improve service quality and simplify everyone’s work.

Enable teams to be more efficient and productive

Facility teams often spend too much of their work hours searching for information, waiting for instruction or documenting their work. LOBSTA provides easy access to actual work to be done on the field.

No facility technician or manager works alone; the most successful facilities teams are those that communicate and collaborate effectively. LOBSTA offers facility teams a single place to collaborate on their maintenance activities.

Say goodbye to extra phone calls, emails, and text messages

LOBSTA allows you to not only collaborate internally, but also send and receive reports from the external parties like customers, visitors, contractors or citizens. Share updates if a problem worsens, ask clarifying questions, or just provide a direct update on progress for a more personable experience.

With LOBSTA, our facility users take photos whenever they find defects and create an issue out of them. It’s as simple as that. Also, they no longer need to make phone calls to ask for the status of their reports.

LOBSTA is your facility’s Service Request Portal, a dedicated site to send in requests, with ability to provide personalized updates to requestors. LOBSTA allows anyone to easily report issues and keep track of the progress.
