A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) software solution stores critical information that is accessible from anywhere there’s internet service. CMMS software eliminates data gaps and silos, enabling maintenance and reliability professionals to make data-driven decisions about asset health and maintenance priorities.

CMMS software solutions should offer end-to-end connectivity and functionality. After assets are setup in the system, operators can enter work orders that are automatically assigned to available technicians. Maintenance teams can use condition-based monitoring metrics to determine the best time to conduct maintenance, rather than relying on calendars. Criticality rankings and asset hierarchies ensure that important assets are prioritized, and critical work is done first. Work requests and work orders can be monitored and managed easily, and the need for reactive work orders is reduced.

eMaint CMMS software is a robust solution that offers accessibility via mobile devices, tablets, or PC/Mac computers. While mobile-only CMMS solutions can hinder the usability of software, eMaint CMMS eliminates barriers to ensure that all users can access the information they need, when they need it. eMaint CMMS software is highly scalable and customizable, so it can be tailored to the precise needs of an organization’s business and budget—and adapted over time as needs and priorities change.

Maintenance teams using a CMMS can monitor work, schedule tasks, track resources, and even create reports. By continuously monitoring and tracking assets, organizations can extend asset life, optimize their processes, and maximize their productivity. Though CMMS solutions come in software-as-a-service (SaaS) or on-prem models, it is SaaS solutions—like eMaint CMMS—that present a lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and a higher return on investment (ROI).

eMaint CMMS software provides actionable insights so maintenance and reliability professionals can increase uptime and productivity, extend asset life, reduce maintenance and labor costs, and even shift to a more sustainable business model.
