Making it simple to schedule & manage PM jobs weeks, months or years in advance.
Anonymous User
I have roughly 40 years experience with PM. Almost 30 of these years were using computer based programs. We evaluated about 10 software packages and found FastMaint was structured very simply yet was far more powerful than we needed. In the end we will have roughly 150 pieces of equipment/facility. Some pieces of equipment will have several Tasks.

A nice easy to use package that has a host of useful features and seems to be bug free. I have looked at a few other products but Fast Maintenance seems by far to be the easiest to use and the quickest to learn. Keep up the good customer support as this is great product.
