There are four things that you need to ask yourself first:

2) Will my staff be able to communicate easier?

3) What are the limitations on accessing the software program?

4) What are the features that will help me?


Planning Maintenance Activities

The great thing about a well-made CMMS is that you have the ability to schedule work orders and preventative maintenance with ease. Once you set it up,each request automatically goes to the appropriate staff member and everything is stored within the system to elimate paperwork, mess, and make reporting simple.

Since everything is done electronically and staff members are automatically notified of what needs to be done, there isn’t an issue of writing something down where it can get lost or misread. The common misscommunications of phone calls are also elimated, nothing is communicated wrong of unclearly.
