Why Should You Outsource Your Food Equipment Repair and Maintenance?

Efficiency, productivity, downtime reduction, and cost savings are prime objectives for many businesses in today’s competitive landscape. Outsourcing your equipment repair and maintenance is an excellent way to realize these goals while ensuring your equipment is both properly maintained and running efficiently.

1. Reduce Costs

In-house staff wages and benefits (such as training, medical, vacation, and workers compensation) are costly. With Smart Care, you’ll only pay for the repair and maintenance services you need and receive – saving from 10-15% per year.

2. Ensure Expertise

While employees expectedly understand your business and its objectives, they may not possess the qualifications for all of your repair and maintenance needs. Smart Care’s skilled technicians are trained on an array of commercial food equipment through a combination of in-person and virtual training, along with onsite training at our national tranining center – totaling to 13,500+ hours per year in training.

3. Minimize Downtime

When your team size is fixed and equipment problems pop up, it can be tricky for in-house staff to juggle the stress of added repairs. Partnering with Smart Care allows you to free up your in-house staff to focus on your core business. We offer scalable solutions customized to fit your needs.

4. Manage Less

In-house maintenance and repair requires that you stock certain parts and manage relationships with vendors or suppliers, which can be both pricey and time-consuming. Our partnerships with OEM manufacturers provide us with discounts on parts and support in providing our customers with top-notch service to get you back up and running faster.

5. Scale Effortlessly

If you have multiple locations or buildings, it can be difficult and costly to employ qualified, in-house maintenance staff across your facilities. When you work with our expert technicians nationwide, you can expect to receive the same professional and reliable service across all sites with no additional effort.
