Toscana Country Club, MTech Team to Maintain True Luxury Experience
Alliance signals MTech’s deeper surge into the management company arena as an approved preventive-maintenance solution
“PMWorks provides us a cost-effective system to track the preventive maintenance of buildings, furniture, fixtures and equipment,” Levy said. “It allows us to hold ourselves up to very high standards, both our members and our own, and to manage the property well and protect our assets.
“Proving with hard evidence that our assets have been protected is very important as we convert to equity for our members,” he added.
How the alliance works. The Toscana Country Club is a community set behind private gates, home to 626 homes and estate homesites. Members of Toscana’s private equity club have walk-on access with golf membership limited to 275 members per 18 hole golf course, on the South and North golf courses architected by Nicklaus Design.
The Club at Toscana gathers seven building in a hillside to create indoor and outdoor spaces that have a flavor of a Tuscan Village. Included are the amenities of golf, tennis, fitness and spas. As a result, the community has unique preventive-maintenance demands.
“Toscana is a boutique-like, upscale property,” said Clyde Edson, a senior account executive at MTech. “It needs consistency in its luxury presentation, and as a Country Club it must maintain certain standards of life, health and safety. PMWorks is the perfect system to achieve those goals.”
PMWorks allows users to enter data into a Web-based system that is user friendly and requires only the equipment name and location.
“PMWorks uses templates, created and proven by hospitality industry experts, to build a workload balanced PM calendar in a few easy steps.” Edson added. “Life-safety and other critical reminders are included throughout the year by default. Once the schedule is in place, properties receive weekly service orders electronically by e-mail. Each service order includes step-by-step instructions on how to do the job right the first time.”
As techs on property finish the work, they can close the orders and add notes from any touch-tone phone or Web browser. PMWorks also e-mails progress reports as a safeguard against falling behind on tasks. The result is better maintained assets, better control and, best of all, peace-of-mind, Levy said.
“We use it in a variety of preventive-maintenance areas,” Levy said. “From power-washing equipment, to air-conditioning, to ice machines. We use it to make sure outdoor teak furniture is oiled on a regular basis. Really, we use it in a million different ways to maintain the luxury experience for our members, and to make sure that experience is safe and fulfilling.”
Sunrise Company is set to roll out MTech’s PMWorks portfolio-wide later in 2009.
