What is Work Order Software?

Work order software enables maintenance managers and technicians to create, update, and manage service requests. So, you get the highest priority work done, while making sure lower priority work doesn’t slip through the cracks.

With MPulse, you can easily receive work orders from an unlimited number of requesters, enter requests manually, or automate tasks via your preventive maintenance program. Then, simply approve, assign, schedule, and manage maintenance requests for your staff members or vendors. You can also automate the approval and assignment of work order requests.

Additionally, automated confirmations can be customized and sent to requesters, managers, and technicians. Reporting functions also help you keep a close eye on the key indicators you choose.
