Simplify Audits With a CMMS

Without the proper system in place, it can become a headache to keep up with the ever-changing standards of audits, and demonstrate compliance at a moment’s notice. In a recent poll, eMaint clients weighed in on which agencies they receive audits from. This information, as well as feedback we hear from customers and others in the maintenance field illustrated that regulatory concerns are at top of mind for maintenance professionals across a variety of industries.
10 Ways To Stay Compliant Using A CMMS
As a result, more and more organizations are using their CMMS systems to help pass audit scrutiny in an organized, streamlined way. For example, one of eMaint’s clients, recently passed a TS16949 audit with eMaint CMMS. TS16949 is an ISO technical specification aimed at the development of a quality management system that provides for continual improvement, emphasizing defect prevention and the reduction of variation and waste in the supply chain. Robert McKenna, Technical Advisor at Dana Corporation had this to say:
“The auditor’s listed our maintenance program and our eMaint CMMS software as ‘Best Practice’ in the industry! They were so impressed they asked many questions about how we got started with the CMMS program. Both auditors were happy that eMaint CMMS is being utilized throughout other Dana facilities. They were also very impressed with our hyperlinks and data tracking that was implemented within this program. After the audit, one of their comments was this, ‘We are excited to see this program, it meets all of the new requirements of the ISO 9001 that will be coming in the near future.'”
