I am not a computer person, but your system is so user friendly, that even for a computer illiterate like my self, it was fairly easy to create rows and cells with spaces for initials, signatures and dates to comply with such strict requirements (referring to FDA requirements).Don Peterson (Maintenance Manager)
I had the program up and running in minutes. Issuing work orders couldn’t be any easier, and the program’s other features are just as intuitive.Peter Silverstein, Plant Manager, Koster Keunen

Benefits at a glance
Certainly maintenance departments will like the ability to manage maintenance of facilities & equipment. It is easy to make & manage schedules for corrective and preventive maintenance. Industrial & commercial facilities like manufacturing plants, warehouses, office complexes, hotels, resorts and more will find it very helpful. Track parts used for maintenance and inventory availability. Reduce out of stock situations that delay maintenance work. Manage purchase orders and more.
Create relationships between assets
For instance, you can define a hierarchy of locations or equipment. Then use this to manage them, create roll-up reports, etc. For example, expand an equipment and find all sub-equipment that are part of it.
You can use this hierarchy to get roll-up reports. For instance, work orders done on an equipment and all its sub-equipment in a period.
Effective work scheduling capability
Plan & track all types of maintenance jobs with the same interface. Schedule & manage preventive maintenance by alarms, meter readings on the equipment (say every 3,000 miles) or by time (say every three weeks) and so on. Moreover, manage & track corrective jobs due to equipment breakdowns.
Get setup faster with Excel imports
Have a lot of equipment & location data in Excel files? You can import equipment, locations, job templates, spare parts & supplies and so on. Therefore, you can quickly setup your system and get going.
The Import function comes with a a step-by-step wizard to help you. With this it is easier to load your information to the correct fields.
In addition, export data to Excel files. For example, you can export last quarter’s work orders. This will allow for import into other systems or further analysis.
Track your pending work
Use work orders to plan & manage work being done by technicians or outside sub-contractors. Work orders can printed or emailed with reminders sent out when they are overdue. Additionally print detailed instructions as well as pictures on work orders to guide technicians and make sure they perform maintenance work correctly. This will reduce rework and equipment downtime.
Analysis & reports
You can get many different reports that can printed or emailed. With this get an idea of equipment downtime, parts & supplies usage, work order costs and more. Best of all, you can use the one-page Statistics report to get an idea of your current situation at a glance!

1. CMMS System Selection – What To Look For?
Since regular maintenance is required for a variety of assets maintenance management embraces a wide area. A maintenance software program is not only useful for industrial maintenance (e.g. manufacturing plants, mining operations, etc.) but useful where you have a lot of facilities needing maintenance (hotel, resorts, restaurants) as well as those with other equipment (e.g. utilities, vehicle fleets).
2. 4 Reasons Why Your CMMS Implementation Will Fail
Many maintenance departments struggle with ongoing maintenance. There is so much to do and so much that never gets done. Therefore a computerized maintenance management software system aka CMMS is often seen as a solution. But even with CMMS software, you may find maintenance takes longer than planned and costing more than budgeted. Why does this happen?
3. How To Fix Maintenance Workflow Problems
A well organized maintenance management program will have some distinct workflows (see workflow diagram). For instance, external users or customers send in maintenance work requests. We schedule this maintenance work as well as preventive maintenance and create work orders. Subsequently technicians receive these work orders and complete them. We generate maintenance reports and so on.
Failures in these maintenance workflow processes will have a variety of consequences. We can have problems during each flow shown in the maintenance workflow diagram (see article).
Asset maintenance is critical in industries with large numbers of expensive equipment & machinery. These assets often are a large portion of the capital investment. Hence, proper maintenance is crucial to get maximum useful life and reduce unexpected failures of equipment.
Computerized maintenance management software, aka CMMS software, is an important tool for such asset maintenance management. We can use it to manage both preventative as well as unplanned maintenance of such equipment.
But that’s just part of the story…
When your organization buys a CMMS/ maintenance software program one of your first challenges will be how to set up & use your new system. Your IT department or consultants can install and do some initial set up the system for you. However, the maintenance planner or maintenance manager have to decide how to setup and use the system!
Have you ever had this happen to you?😒
You will need to find some way to start using the system without bogging down or slowing maintenance operations. After all the critical job here is ongoing equipment & facility maintenance.
Just think about it…
