When asking the founder and CEO, Ryan Chan, why. Chan responded by saying, “it is because of impact.” He says that, “their mission has always been to empower the technician, their manager, and the entire maintenance team to improve and be better.” Chan said that they noticed by having a pay wall on UpKeep, it prevented too many of their end users from driving change in their organization even though they strived for it. There was red tape in their organization that made it difficult to improve processes if you didn’t control a title. And too often, their end users were forced to use a system that was handed down from upper managers that actually made their daily work routine more difficult.
UpKeep and their team recognized a cycle and wanted to offer UpKeep for free to break the loop. With UpKeep’s free version, anyone will now be able to implement UpKeep and provide value to their business whether they controlled the budget or not.
Bundled in with today’s announcement of their free plan of UpKeep, they are also rolling out an additional product line geared towards larger businesses called, “UpKeep for Enterprise.” This new product tier allows enterprises to connect multiple facilities into a single UpKeep dashboard to give directors a high level overview of multiple facilities at once.
UpKeep is a mobile-first solution for maintenance management built for technicians and managers. It allows workers to snap a picture of a broken piece of equipment, create a work order, and send it off to the maintenance department for repair–all from their mobile device. They have over 50,000 users, who have realized the power of UpKeep.
