As much as multifamily has become data-driven, there are a few major areas of operation that still operate in the dark from a data perspective.

 

Multifamily Maintenance Operations is one of them.

 

The reasons why vary, but the primary one seems to be centered around the fact that maintenance is a hands-on operation, performed in the field, and capturing good field data is hard. This is fueled by a common industry misconception that maintenance personnel are not capable of using technology to enable more accurate capture of repair data.

This year's NHMC OPTECH conference was the biggest ever...ok, well it's pretty much that way every year! And it's no wonder - the technology push in multifamily has been rolling for the last few years and it's not slowing down.
