Governments strictly regulate life science businesses. Maintenance and operations professionals must comply with local, state, federal, and international laws. With so many regulations, it’s no wonder many organizations find the reporting and auditing standards confusing and cumbersome.

That’s where computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software comes in. As one of the top-rated life science solutions available, eMaint CMMS simplifies compliance by creating a digital paper trail for inspectors.

  • Secure and accurate record-keeping
  • Track maintenance activities and asset histories
  • Access procedures and processes repository

With digital documentation, you can easily share proof of compliance with auditors. Not only will life sciences organizations prove compliance easier with digital records and signatures, but they will experience increased operational reliability.

Top 5 CMMS Benefits for Life Sciences

1. Creating audit trail

Maintenance teams using eMaint CMMS create end-to-end compliance trails for 21 CFR Part 11 audits, including asset histories, work orders completions, and electronic signatures.

2.  Streamlining asset health and history

Not only does eMaint CMMS store asset work order histories, but it also includes real-time and historical condition monitoring data.

3.  Automating Calibration & PMs

Compliance and calibration preventive maintenance actions can be scheduled or automated using eMaint CMMS.

4.  Tracking labor and inventory

As work orders are completed, automatically tracking labor and inventory levels helps managers plan and schedule future PMs and restock orders.

5.  Making smarter financial decisions

With proper records, leadership can make more informed decisions about asset repair/replacements, IIoT implementations, and reliability-centered maintenance.


Companies schedule calibration work orders to verify the accuracy of condition monitoring measurements.

Companies calibrate equipment easier with eMaint. Automating calibration work orders and tracking schedules for preventive maintenance (PM) work completions simplifies compliance audits. Organizations increase accuracy by streamlining record-keeping with digitalized activities, including calibration, tests, and measurements. Reduce compliance audit headaches by eliminating bulky binders and reducing data entry errors in records.

Using eMaint CMMS, teams receive alerts when condition monitoring readings fall outside chosen tolerance ranges. Technicians can then complete automated PMs as scheduling allows. With eMaint, you’re always ready for an audit or inspection.

Assets that need calibration

  • Temperature
  • Pressure
  • Flow Metrics
  • Pipettes
  • Incubators
  • Centrifuges
  • Pressure Elements
  • Pressure Indicators
  • Scales


Organizations in pharma are under a lot of regulatory pressure to increase accountability in manufacturing. As such, the guidance in 21 CFR Part 11 is crucial to maintenance and operations professionals. Automated report and dashboard generation provides KPI tracking and documentation for inspectors.
