Moore made the most of the training offered by eMaint by attending all of the boot camp sessions. She then trained her manager and visited each location to train other essential users. Her first task was to enter all assets into the system.
EP2 harnessed many of the eMaint system’s key features and other vital functions, including customizing form fields, dashboards and integrating purchase orders and invoicing with the CMMS.
Because the organization manages 15 facilities, the eMaint interactive maps feature was especially beneficial. Moore wanted to make it easier for technicians to identify where maintenance work needed to be performed. Using an asset ID, technicians can pull up a WO on a smartphone or via an onsite monitor. Based on the asset ID, the interactive map shows which facility and the room where they need to perform the work.
Moore also used the system to develop a workflow that would designate and auto-populate priority WO levels. Maintenance leaders and technicians can use the eMaint dashboard to view the priorities and other work orders on one screen and see the number of days they have to complete the work.
EP2 even optimized the custom fields function by adding a field that informs the hiring person if a contractors’ certification is up-to-date or expired.
