 Another new year is upon us and really, where does the time go? If you are still using a paper trail to schedule work tasks, are behind on preventative maintenance, or find it hard to keep up with repairs and new equipment – then CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) is for you.


Here are a few areas where CMMS can make your workload easier to handle and take some of the responsibility off of your shoulders.


Preventative Maintenance

One thing about preventative maintenance is that you have to do it in order for it to work. The traditional way of doing things; writing it on a calendar, you have to remember to write it down in the first place or wait until it needs to de done, which negates the whole theory of the preventative part of any maintenance. With CMMS, you can schedule all of your preventative maintenance in advance and then not have to worry about it. Once it's set up, it automatically sends out the work order when it's time to do it.


Work Tasks

Works tasks can be straightforward – you send someone out and you tell them what to do. But this way of managing work orders  can mean lost paperwork, not knowing what time something was completed, or even documenting what was done. With CMMS, there is a place for notes, date, time, location, and more. Best of all, the work order can be viewed sent via the mobile app, which lowers downtime and allows your or your staff to get work orders in real time. 



Wouldn't it be nice to have an idea of the longevity of your equipment? With CMMS there is an area that allows you to keep up with repair dates and costs and give you an idea of the lifetime of the equipment so that you can make the decision whether to replace the equipment or to schedule more repairs to be completed.

It's simple to use but brings everything you need right to your fingertips.
