Built Using Best Practice Insights from Leading Educational Institutions, MaintenanceEssentials Pro and EventEssentials Pro Help Streamline School Facilities Operations


Our new platform model creates more collaboration opportunities so institutions can take full advantage of operations expertise and big data insights and analysis from schools across the country.

Setting a new standard for educational operations management, SchoolDude, a leading provider of operations management solutions, today launched two Collaborative Operations Management platforms, MaintenanceEssentials Pro and EventEssentials Pro. For the first time, SchoolDude’s solutions are available in two comprehensive platforms, helping educational institutions collaborate with their peers, boost efficiency and increase responsiveness, communication and transparency.

Leveraging educational data and collective best practice insights from SchoolDude’s 6,000 educational institution clients, MaintenanceEssentials Pro, a Facilities Management platform, and EventEssentials Pro, a Facilities Event and Community Use Management platform, will enable institutions to communicate, collaborate and complete operational work more efficiently.

“Our new platform model creates more collaboration opportunities so institutions can take full advantage of operations expertise and big data insights and analysis from schools across the country,” said Nick Mirisis, director of marketing and business development of SchoolDude. “We understand that operations professionals don’t have time to recreate the wheel and want to implement the proven best practices strategies for their operations. The new platforms allow educational leaders to use the power of big data to identify and predict operational gaps and emergencies, implement continuous improvement strategies to achieve greater success, and adopt a proactive management model.”

MaintenanceEssentials Pro Offers New Mobile Work Management App

At the core of the new platform is SchoolDude’s award-winning corrective and preventive maintenance solution. MaintenanceEssentials Pro now offers a mobile work management app integrated with SchoolDude’s maintenance management solution. Simple mobile interfaces and voice-activated note taking makes it easy for staff to capture work order information on-site which will help save staff work time.

EventEssentials Pro Streamlines Facility Scheduling With Calendar Integration and Online Payments

With a Calendar Integration feature, EventEssentials Pro simplifies and automates the facility scheduling, invoicing, risk assessment and communication and processes associated with the publication of calendar events. An Online Payment capability streamlines billing and payment collection for external events helping institutions save valuable time and money.

Both platforms offer a number of new features that increase clients’ ability to continuously improve, communicate, collaborate and utilize SchoolDude’s client success coaches. This includes:
·     Key Performance Indicators which make it easier for schools to evaluate their progress and where they can improve.
·     Executive Facilities Reports that help justify staff and budgets with detailed reports for leadership teams.
