You've done your research. You've narrowed down your vendor list.
It's time to get prices. But pricing maintenance management systems can be like comparing apples and oranges.
What You Need to Know About CMMS Pricing
Most maintenance managers focus on the dollar amount. But pricing a maintenance management system covers far more.
Licensing: Start with licensing. How many users will you have to start? How many will you add later? Look at the costs per user. You may be better off with software that allows unlimited users, particularly if you anticipate growth.
Features: Make sure the basic features are covered and check for the cost of add-ons. Even if you don't need them now, you might need them later, and you don't want any surprises.
CMMS Pricing Covers More Than Software
Implementation Services: Sometimes CMMS pricing includes implementation services—and sometimes it doesn't. Be realistic about what you need. If you're investing in CMMS, you want it to be a success. Otherwise whatever CMMS pricing you are looking at is just money down the drain.
Training: Another factor is training. Don't skimp on this line item. Training is proven to be the strongest factor in CMMS success. Compare not just the price, but the training types. Make sure it's the right fit for your team.
Pricing a maintenance management system is more than just numbers. Look deeper to see what you are getting.
