Hippo CMMS has served hundreds of clients belonging to a wide range of industries, from education to manufacturing healthcare to non-profit. The following case study showcases one such client success story within the education sector. Learn how MITT solved their maintenance challenges with Hippo CMMS!

I. COMPANY: The Manitoba Institute of Trades and Technology (MITT), formerly known as Winnipeg Technical College, offers students from across the globe a diverse range of full and part time vocational programs. This fully equipped campus consists of multiple downtown facilities and eleven satellite sites. An internal team of twelve custodial and maintenance staff primarily maintain these buildings while the college also relies on outside contractors for major repair work, materials and supplies.

II. CHALLENGE: MITT experienced two main challenges that lead them to seek out a CMMS software:

  1. Lack of a centralized system: MITT was interested in housing all maintenance documents and records in one centralized system as well as tracking inventory levels and parts management.
  2. Lack of tracking various aspects of maintenance operations: Tracking and reporting was an essential requirement from any CMMS that they chose- basic features that they weren’t receiving from their current system.The college also needed to track labor hours and monitor staff performance to ensure that priority tasks were being completed and workflow properly distributed.

III. DECISION: Hippo quickly rose to the top among other providers by featuring user-friendly functionality and modules that matched with what the college was looking for. This process has been especially important in increasing the efficiency of MITT’s vendor management.

IV. SOLUTION: With plans of rolling out Hippo to additional MITT buildings, the college is satisfied with both the qualitative and quantitative benefits that their CMMS system has provided. They are so enthusiastic about the product, that they recommend Hippo to any college looking for a streamlined approach to their maintenance management.
