A lack of access to modern technology and real-time data analysis in the field, results in massive inefficiencies and laborious, costly processes for millions of maintenance and asset management professionals. Worldwide, an estimated $3 billion a year is spent on the software currently used industry wide. This spend is predicted to increase to $6 billion by 2022. In 2018, only 53% of manufacturing plants used a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) to monitor their equipment, while 44% still tracked maintenance needs with pencil and paper. Equipment downtime costs the U.S. $50 billion each year, and up to 30% of manufacturing deaths are related to performing maintenance functions that might be preventable with technologies like predictive analytics.
As a former process development engineer at a manufacturing facility, Ryan Chan, UpKeep’s Founder and CEO, experienced first-hand, the inadequacies that exist today in maintenance management. He understood that by reducing downtime and boosting productivity, maintenance professionals could drive true return on investment (ROI) for manufacturers and drastically decrease manufacturing accidents and deaths. UpKeep was born with the single mission to revolutionize facilities and asset management and to put the software in the hands of those maintenance professionals who could make a difference.
