Whats Included

With our CREST solution you will give you access to the following


Live KPI Dashboard

Our live KPI dashboard gives you live updates on how we are performing as a company with our first-time fix rate, time attendance for engineers, parts required updates and completed jobs over the last 7 to 30 days.

Budget Management

We understand that each business has different budget restraints. With the support of your account manager along with expert advice from our engineers, we can achieve a plan to maintain your operations, whilst keeping within your budget.

Our cloud technology tracks expenditure for each piece of equipment you own, and thorough inspections are carried out with each engineer’s visit, meaning that we can foresee the life expectancy of your equipment. By doing this you can be assured that we will know in advance when your equipment is coming towards the end of its life expectancy, allowing you to budget for it accordingly with no nasty surprises.

Lifecycle Planning

Regular Servicing

Your commercial kitchen is an investment, so providing proper care and maintenance is essential and will extend the lifespan of your equipment. With Midlands you can schedule your maintenance and servicing visits around your schedule and as regularly as you need them, leaving you in complete control.

Equipment Diagnostic Report

We can provide detailed diagnostic reports of your equipment’s health, allowing you to track its performance and know when it will need parts replacing or maintenance booking in. These reports give total transparency to our customers and are easily accessed via our cloud portal whenever you need to view them.

Replacement Schedule

Knowing the life cycle of your equipment allows you to plan for the future, and make the necessary changes to your budget when your equipment reaches the end of its life. Having access to this information allow businesses to budget around such expenditures, leaving you in control of your assets with no nasty surprises.
