Asset preventative maintenance
With the software, HVAC companies can track the cost of maintenance agreements and plan recurring preventative maintenance jobs. TSM Evolution streamlines creating multi-site maintenance agreements and monitoring the performance of customer assets. Businesses can move assets from site to site with all movement audited and history retained. Teams can initiate planned preventative maintenance schedules for recurring jobs, quotes, invoices, and purchase orders using the software’s schedule wizards or manually adjust them to suit any program configuration. Furthermore, organizations can fine-tune each schedule with expiry dates, assigned users or groups, allocated hours, planned charges, estimated costs, and consumables.
Purchasing and supplier management
TSM Evolution automatically generates and links purchases to a PO number, so users can match supplier invoices to field purchases. It also supports configurable approvals processes. Users can enter supplier invoices directly against the purchase order, updating PO, job, and inventory costs, and then the software posts them to accounting.
Field service teams can manage large projects, estimates, progress claims, variations, retention, and actual costs to deliver projects on time and on budget with TSM Evolution. Businesses can build multi-staged projects with variations, purchase materials, and schedule work for field techs. In addition, managers can check Actual Costs and Future Costs to complete vs. Expected Costs. They can also track cash flow and identify overruns as they occur, enabling them to keep customers updated every step of the way.
