These 10 benefits represent just part of what is possible with eMaint CMMS. Organizations can also easily access data and insights that make it possible to cut costs and boost revenue, ensure compliance, and optimize uptime and production.
By monitoring and tracking assets, organizations gain a clear picture into real-time asset health and performance. CMMS software helps organizations make data-driven maintenance decisions and reduce asset failures and maintenance costs. The ability to define a Ranking Index Maintenance Expenditure (RIME) ranking makes prioritizing assets simple and enables maintenance teams to streamline how they spend their time and efforts.
Work order management tools increase transparency and visibility, so that team members stay on the same page. Scheduling and work order signoffs become fast and simple, and on-time work completion rates increase. Work requests and work order permitting are easier to track and inventory spending is minimized when organizations have the parts they need on hand—and no longer pay expediting fees when assets go down unexpectedly.
Fully leveraging eMaint CMMS software not only improves maintenance efficiency, but also changes the image of maintenance activities from being a cost center into a business value engine of the company. With an optimized maintenance program, where unplanned downtime and costs are reduced, uptime and productivity are maximized, and asset lifecycles are extended, organizations gain a competitive edge.
How to get the most out of your CMMS
Using a CMMS enables organizations to balance cutting costs while improving productivity and customer satisfaction. However, experts estimate that up to 80% of CMMS implementations fail to meet expectations.
To ensure your CMMS implementation is a success and you get the most out of your system, follow these key steps:
Ensure data integrity
A CMMS is only as good as the data flowing through it. Building an asset hierarchy and collecting complete and accurate data are important factors in maintaining data hygiene.
Invest in training and education
On average, companies actively use only 10-20% of their system’s functionality. Effective training can drastically improve the value you get from your CMMS. Make sure your team is educated by providing core functionality CMMS training (both initial and ongoing).
Document work processes
The more you document within your CMMS, the easier it is to prepare for compliance audits and identify potential failures. Get started by establishing work control functions, defining priority based on criticality and accounting for 100% of labor and parts incurred.
Control budget and cost
Tracking costs within your CMMS enables you to make smarter budgeting decisions. Charge costs to work orders, document cost improvements, and support asset life cycle costing.
Plan and schedule work
Manage your maintenance resources more efficiently by establishing a process for planning and scheduling. Monitor the amount of proactive work and develop work schedules for planned work.
Manage MRO materials
Bridge the maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) reliability gap by designating critical and/or capital spare parts, tracking warranty information, and documenting processes for refurbishment/repair.
Track and measure KPIs
Transform your CMMS data into meaningful insights and make data-driven decisions. Easily measure key performance indicators (KPIs) such as downtime, labor performance, and wrench time.
Audit processes for continuous improvement
Treat your CMMS as your most valuable asset. Evaluate ongoing improvements each year. Conduct reviews on processes, data, and workflows in order to ensure that you are maximizing your value.
