Aramark to Utilize WebTMA at Chicago Public Schools

TULSA, OK, June 12, 2014 – As a result of the continued benefits being realized by Aramark, it was recently announced that Chicago Public Schools will begin implementation of WebTMA for their custodial operations. Aramark has successfully utilized WebTMA as their preferred Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) for the past four years.  

Chicago Public Schools’ decision to go with Aramark stemmed in large part from the benefits other school districts were receiving by their use of WebTMA.   Another critical factor for Chicago Public Schools was providing a solution that could be embraced by users as a positive change to their existing method of custodial operations.  WebTMA met this objective because of its ease-of-use as well as the broad set of technical specifications required by Aramark.

The new system is viewed as an important tool that will enhance workers’ productivity by allowing Aramark to more effectively manage their custodial operations.  John C. Smith, Chief Executive Officer of TMA Systems, stated, “Our successful relationship with Aramark proved that TMA could effectively perform the job for Chicago Public Schools. We appreciate their continued confidence in our organization.”
