To request a Facilities Management Work Order please dial extension 4-2900 (dial all five numbers). This is set up as a local number on the Morris Campus (no long distance charge). You do not need to dial “9” for an outside line as it’s set up as an extension.

What is the COMPASS System?

COMPASS is a software product specifically designed to manage customer requests and maintenance activities.

Why the COMPASS System?

COMPASS allows us to better serve our customers by improved tracking and scheduling of work orders as well as saving money through improved decision-making based on useful, easily accessible information. Some specific examples include:

  • Establishing systematic work flow processes for improved consistency and reporting.
  • Implementing a preventive maintenance program to reduce equipment breakdown.
  • Tracking labor hours to understand and address “high maintenance” equipment.
  • An enterprise wide platform allows for leveraging IT and business support resources (both internal and contractors) across all University of Minnesota campuses to apply where most effective.
  • An enterprise wide platform allows for leveraging computing resources (servers, licenses, networking, etc.) across all University of Minnesota campuses.
  • Opportunity to automate additional business processes in the future.
