Learning Communities with Ryan Chan
It is my pleasure to welcome Ryan Chan who is the founder of Upkeep. Ryan has done a lot of work in building online maintenance communities..
He went to University of California Berkeley and graduated as a chemical engineer. His first job was at a manufacturing company where he noticed several opportunities for improvement in the technology that was being utilized at the time.
These gaps gave me the idea to build a software that could:
- Assist maintenance engineers and facility managers
- Improve workforce collaboration
- Improve parts inventory management
- And improve overall asset management
