NSHC selects MCS IWMS for facility, maintenance, and space management
August 6, 2018 – MCS Solutions announced today that Norton Sound Health Corporation (NSHC) selected its IWMS software for the management and optimization of its healthcare facilities in northwestern Alaska. NSHC will deploy the solution across its hospital and village clinics along the Bering Sea coast and on islands of the region.
The solution will support NSHC to improve the end-to-end handling of service tickets and efficiency of (maintenance) work execution. As well as enabling them to stay in control of service quality and costs. Moreover, it will help the not-for-profit organization to effectively plan preventative maintenance and maximize asset performance across multiple locations. In addition, the capability to upload CAD plans and convert the drawings into spatial data will enhance the organization’s space management.
NSHC opted for a worry-free Software as a Service (SaaS) agreement. The software and cloud subscription not only include reporting tools but also a user-friendly, self-service web portal for end users. Technical agents will also have access to a specialized mobile work order app to manage their tasks on the go.
Mike Kruse, PMP, Director of Engineering & OEH at NSHC, said: “We are excited to deploy the new MCS platform to take advantage of its powerful integration between work order / periodic maintenance planning, asset management, and space planning. This integration will allow us to identify and readily respond to issues and resolve them in the most efficient manner possible.”
“We’re looking forward to realizing this project together with our delivery partner Sage Method”, commented Steve Morren, Sales Director at MCS Americas, based in New York. “With its excellent project management skills, Sage Method will support NSHC to get the most out of our state-of-the-art software. As a result, our client will be able to make better-informed decisions and optimize its FM and maintenance operations. Furthermore, the solution will boost the performance of the technical agents who can benefit from specialized mobile apps. These apps are very useful, for instance, for in-field work order management and inspections. Whilst connecting workers to asset information 24/7, our mobile apps also offer offline capabilities. This is indeed crucial in the very remote landscape NSHC is working in.”
Norton Sound Health Corporation (NSHC) is a tribally owned and operated, independent, not-for-profit healthcare organization. It was founded in 1970 to meet the healthcare needs of the Inupiat, Siberian Yup’ik and Yu’pik people of the Bering Strait region. NSHC is governed by a 24-member board of directors who represent all communities and areas of the Bering Strait region, a 44,000 square-mile section of northwestern Alaska. NSHC provides health and medical services to 15 village clinics and a hospital in Alaska, which was voted the 6th most beautiful hospital in the USA in 2016:
