When it comes to any type of “new to you” product, sometimes you may think something that isn't exactly true. If anything makes you second guess getting a CMMS program, then hopefully this will set your mind at ease.
CMMS Costs Too Much
Sure, a Computerized Maintenance Management Software program isn't going to be free but when you weigh the benefits, it is something you cannot afford to be without. You get all of the benefits of the program and don't pay extra for things like tech support or installation. And when you look being able to decide if something needs repair or replacement, being able to keep up with inventory, schedule preventative maintenance in advance, and take care of work tasks – it's invaluable to your business.
You Have to Be a Computer Genius
The CMMS of today is different than in the past. Today's interface is so simple that if you know how to use a computer, you can use a CMMS program. There is training provided to get you started, tech support is just a call away, and everything is simple so anyone can use it with ease. It is flexible, you can login from anywhere you want and Maintenance Care will be there for you every step of the way.
It is Only for Larger Businesses and Corporations
This myth is not true at all. Even smaller businesses need to know when jobs are done, set up preventative maintenance, keep up with equipment and paperwork, and know about their equipment's life span. Even a maintenance department that only has one or two employees can take advantage of all of the things that CMMS does. It's easier than using spreadsheets, you won't have lost paperwork, and if you need to run reports – it's there at the touch of a button.
