Is it a good idea to hire an on-call mobile mechanic? There are several reasons why this could be a great option for your facilities, especially when you want to save money. In today’s blog from Omnia360, we discuss the benefits of hiring an on-call mobile mechanic for your facilities.

On-Call Mobile Mechanics Can Save on FTE Benefits
You’ve been doing this long enough, so you understand the cost of doing business. And your number-one investment is people. This means time spent hiring and training new employees. It means offering costly benefits packages, as well as perks like paid holidays, personal days off, and office space. While these are necessary, hiring someone who isn’t considered a full-time employee can save you money while keeping your business running as efficiently as possible.
With our one-call facility management solution and mobile services, you have the convenience of having a mechanic on your property quickly, ready to assess and fix any issues. No need to wait on an independent company to call you back and make an appointment days in advance. This translates to reduced downtime and asset protection.
Complement Your Current Staff
If you have a team of mechanics on staff, chances are they are busy keeping the facilities operating through day-to-day issues, upkeep, and regular maintenance. Emergencies, major failures, and specialized repairs can overtask your regular team. Technically challenging issues in the middle of the night or on the weekend can further strain your workforce, throwing off the flow of operations and increasing overtime. These situations cost time, money, and operational resources.
There are also concerns regarding staff absences, dismissals, and vacations. As HR-related issues occur, will you have enough staff to handle not only the day-to-day operations but emergencies as well?
By contracting a mobile mechanic for facility management, you can call them when issues arise. They can be on-premise to fix the problems quickly and efficiently without the rest of your staff becoming overworked and overburdened.
On the Premises Only When Needed
How many times have you staffed a mechanic overnight or on the weekends for ‘just in case’ scenarios? Just in case a pipe freezes. Just in case the heating unit goes down.
When nothing freezes and everyone stays warm, it turns out the mechanic wasn’t needed. That’s great news, except you just spent hundreds of dollars on unneeded labor.
Labor dollars can add up quickly. The more hours, the higher the dollars. With an on-call mechanic from Omnia360, they are only on the ground or in the building when you need them. This reduces labor costs because you’re only paying for staff when they’re needed. This allows you to focus your investments on facility upgrades and higher profitability.
