Learn Why CMMS Cloud Based Software Is Prefered Over Server Based

August 14, 2015

If you're reading this blog post then perhaps you're already interested in CMMS, which is a Computerized Maintenance Management Software system. Those who are already familiar with CMMS probably have a rudimentary understanding of what encompasses cloud based software.Web-based-software

Even owning certain products exposes you to cloud based software, but what makes it so unique and better than server based software? Here are a few of the reasons that cloud based software excels over server based software.


Remote Accessibility

With CMMS, you have remote accessibility. You can access the software from any place that has an Internet connection. This means no more running to the office to prepare a report. You can check in while on vacation, if you're out sick, or while traveling on business. With a server based program, you are tethered to your computer, you lose the freedom to access your program from anywhere.


Upgrade and User Fees

Many server based companies charge for upgrades. This is because you need new software for the upgrade and there is more work involved for the company, not to mention shipping fees if applicable. With cloud based software, all of the upgrades are handled on their own server and done automatically so you do not have to worry about it.



Have you ever lost some of your important work because you didn't back it up? With cloud based software, you don't have to ever worry about it because we handle all of that for you. If your computer breaks down, you still have accessibility to your files, reports, and downloads because it's all backed up through our own servers so you can sit back and relax.



Speaking of computer breakdowns, what about regular outages due to bad weather or a power failure? Since CMMS through Maintenance Care is available remotely and online, you can grab your phone that has WiFi and simply log in conveniently.
