Trane Discusses Leading-Edge Service Solutions at  Field Service USA 2015

Palm Springs, Calif., April 16, 2015 – Global service experts from Trane, a leading global provider of indoor comfort solutions and services and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, will discuss strategies for effective technology-enabled maintenance at the Field Service USA 2015 conference on April 20-23, 2015, at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, California.

For decades, facilities teams have turned to the calendar or hour meter to determine when it was time to service their heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) and other building systems. But recent innovations give organizations the information they need to perform maintenance when it is really needed and not just because it is scheduled.

Dane Taival, vice president of building services and customer care for Trane, will discuss how to turn these innovations into effective maintenance strategies. 

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Create effective service and maintenance strategies that are proactive, holistic, technology-enabled and knowledge-based.
  • Use computer modeling, diagnostic testing, predictive technologies and other techniques to reach beyond run-to-fail and preventive maintenance concepts.
  • Move to a predictive and reliability centered maintenance approach to improve service and overall customer satisfaction.
