The new platform also lets you store and view previous transactions, making the process for requesting new equipment parts simple. Operations manager for Pulse Fitness, Joe Riley, says: “Moving our maintenance service online has also meant that staff can log direct requests and orders at a time that suits them, not just during the nine-tofive day.”
