The data centers managed by Schneider Electric can include multiple buildings per site, with a conservative estimate of 1,400 assets to track and manage for each. With the 18 live data centers managed by Schneider Electric Facilities Operations Team and an estimated total of 25,000 assets, asset management would be nearly impossible without the right system.
Prior to eMaint, the Schneider Electric maintenance department had an inflexible CMMS system, lacking a user-friendly interface and the ability to customize screens. Their new CMMS system would need to be a web-based solution with flexibility to change and customize fields, robust reporting and mobile capabilities with barcode scanning. Because data centers require 100 percent uptime, keeping track of past and upcoming maintenance is vital. After gathering information on ten different systems, the Facilities Operations department chose eMaint as their CMMS solutions provider.
