What are the benefits of lifecycle planning?

Regular servicing

Commercial kitchen equipment is a huge investment, so you want to ensure it’s performing efficiently to reduce the risk of emergency repairs. Lifecycle planning allows you to track when appliances have been serviced and book regular check-ups.

Equipment diagnostic reporting

Detailed diagnostic reports keep you up to date with your equipment’s health, helping you stay one step ahead if any repairs or replacements are needed. It also monitors its energy efficiency, highlighting areas where you can reduce costs.

Stress-free planning

With easy access to service reports, you have daily insights into how your kitchen is running without disturbing your staff or customers. You can use this data to forecast your outgoings and adjust your budget ahead of time, rather than in emergency situations.

Lifecycle plan reports

Our engineer’s reports identify equipment reaching its life expectancy. These downloadable reports highlight the time of year equipment needs to be replaced and the cost involved, allowing you to stay ahead by implementing a lifecycle plan that suits your budget. With our existing customer base, we generally work on lifecycle plans between 1-10 years depending on the age of the estate.
