A Study in Savings: N. Syracuse Central School District

4.1.1

North Syracuse Central School District saved an estimated $33,000 of operating costs in its first year using ML Schedules™ Community Facility Use Software.

It’s back-to-school season in New York State and while K12 school districts are busy getting ready for new and returning students in the next few weeks, one district is already ahead of the class when it comes to improving operating efficiencies and increasing community satisfaction.

Estimated savings of $33,000 after first year of use
As an early beta user and the first subscriber of MasterLibrary™ ML Schedules™ Community Facility Use Request Software, North Syracuse Central School District (NSCSD) has realized estimated savings of more than $33,000 in the first year of continuous use based on staff labor cost alone.

Other NSCSD benefits of software use have included:

  • Improved facility staff knowledge and control of available spaces;
  • Increased community user satisfaction with secure 24/7 system access, and;
  • Improved staff satisfaction by eliminating drudgery of managing community Facility Use Requests.

We’ve been getting great response to ML Schedules™ software throughout the state. See the North Syracuse CSD Case Study to learn how they automated this time-consuming process quickly, easily and at an affordable price.

MasterLibrary™ Software extends a special note of gratitude to Jon Ward, North Syracuse CSD’s Facilities Director, for his confidence in our ability to solve his problem while providing vital guidance on ML Schedules™ features.

To all our District clients (and their architects and CMs), best of luck with the 2015/16 academic year and we hope to hear from you soon.

Founded on the needs of Construction and Facility Management professionals

MasterLibrary™ Software was built around the premise of harnessing the power of real-time, cloud-based computing to solve real-world issues facing the Construction and Facility Management industries. More specifically, we wanted to:

  • Improve collaboration among owners, architects, engineers, and contractors
  • Increase efficiency during all phases of a project
  • Provide an affordable price point for small- and mid-sized organizations


clock-roundML Projects™ Construction Administration Software was designed over 20 years around the practical and operational issues faced by a technology consulting company, Archi-Technology, with which some ML Projects™ users may be familiar. The need to sync the efforts of these professions during the Plan, Design and Construct phases of a project—whether new build or renovate—drove the collaborative features of the cloud-based application.

icon-binder-round-lgML Binders™ Facility and Systems Documentation Software extends that reach to the Manage phase by allowing architects and contractors to hand over fully-electronic As Built drawings and documentation including project history files and O&M manuals. Data can be linked to a specific device via a printed QR code for instant access by maintenance and service staff.

We are pleased to extend the power of the cloud to owners, facility managers and community users with ML Schedules software that continues to improve based on real-world District feedback.

Q. Do you have any ideas about how to improve an existing ML Schedules™ feature or a recommended new one? We’d love to hear from you via this blog or an email.

Thanks for your time and have a great August, wherever it finds you.
