Many facilities know that CMMS works best for their needs but if you're still on the fence, here are a few ways to know that it is time to make a change for the better.


Preventative Maintenance

If you do not have a plan for preventive maintenance, you're losing time and money. Sure, most facilities schedule their preventive maintenance tasks, but without having automated notifications, things are often overlooked. By using a Computerized Maintenance Management Software program, there are huge benefits such as automatic notifications sent to the staff when it is time to do the PM work, the ability to set up the preventive maintenance in advance, making preventive maintenance a priority as well as something that is always implemented, and a way to track what needs to be done, when it's done, and who did it.


Work Orders

With CMMS, work orders are automatically sent to the staff member and there are no communication issues. This is because everything is entered into the system which keeps a record of the who, when, where, and how – oh and don't forget what time it was completed too. This keeps your records up to date and there is never a question about whether or not something was completed. You are able to keep up with the cost associated with the work order, how often the work is done or needs to be done, and employees won't have to even come to the office to get the work order so this also saves time.



Inventory is easier to keep up with since it is entered into the system. Instead of using spreadsheets or paperwork that can be lost, you have everything you need right at the touch of a button.


Remote Access

The great thing about CMMS is that as long as you have an Internet connection and a browser, you can access the system. No more having to go to the office to get something scheduled or done and you can check on things at work from any place you need. Let's say you are finally taking that much-needed vacation when something simply must be scheduled at work and there is no one else to cover you.
