What do I use a Preventive Maintenance order for?
Let's take the example that you want to schedule service every six months for a client.
Rather than manually creating a new service workorder for every six month period from now until the end of time, or rather than having to remind yourself to schedule that every six months and some times accidentally forgetting and losing out on that revenue, or the non-service resulting in a catastrophe - just create a single Preventive Maintenance order and let AyaNova automatically generate the service workorders from it as needed!
The primary goal of preventive (a.k.a. "preventative") maintenance is to prevent the failure of equipment before it actually occurs.
With AyaNova, you create a Preventive Maintenance order once, and then use it to automatically or manually generate service work orders from it.
Think of the Preventive Maintenance order as a "template" for your service workorder that has the additional bonus of automatically generating service workorders from it on specific dates that you have told it to do.
You create one Preventive Maintenance order, and from that PM generate the reoccurring service workorders where the work is actually scheduled and where details about the service performed are entered.

While the term preventive maintenance is used, technically speaking you can use AyaNova's Preventive Maintenance feature for any type of recurring service workorder.
By pre-planning service, you make sure that:
•Provide service that prevents issues rather than being called in to perform service after an issue has occurred. Result is happy customers.
•Your customers are serviced without them having to call you and remind you. Result is happy customers.
•A steady booking of service and revenue rather than being swamped at once with emergencies.
For example, you might provide photocopier service for rental machines. By using the PM feature of AyaNova, you can automatically have AyaNova create service workorders on a regular basis (i.e. every six months) identifying what service to perform, to identify meter usage, etc.
You will note that the same fields and workorder items appear in service work order, the quote and the preventive maintenance order entry screens. The service work order, the quote and the preventive maintenance order use portions of the same screens/fields for ease of transfer between the three.
