To answer those questions, you need data—and you need it quickly. Pulling together reports from spreadsheets or (ugh) paper work orders is time consuming, tedious, and inaccurate.
With CMMS software, you’re collecting maintenance data with every work order. So, when it’s time to answer those questions about asset management or repair/replace decisions, you have what you need at your fingertips.
You’re Ready to Go Mobile
Whether it’s your younger employees who live with their devices or the availability of better Internet access on the road, it’s time to think about mobile CMMS software.
Mobile technology allows your team to access information and record data on the spot—where maintenance happens, instead of in a plant or office.
That means they have quick and easy access to critical information, making it easier to get the job done and capture historical data.
You Need to Integrate with Other Software
You need more maintenance data, but so do other departments.
Wasting time re-entering and maintaining information in multiple systems is not only inefficient, it’s prone to problems and errors.
Integrating your CMMS software and your financial application or accounting system is easier than ever. Data sharing technology (like MPulse DataLink) simplifies the process of sharing information, so everyone gets the data they need quickly and easily.
What worked for a maintenance team of two or three techs doesn’t work as that organization grows to 5, 10, 20 or more maintenance employees. Communication is harder, and the old systems just aren’t efficient.
Plus, as your organization grows, you’re likely maintaining larger numbers of assets with the same—or even fewer—resources.
Older systems aren’t always scalable to adapt to the increase of the operation. But modern CMMS software can. Scalable CMMS software grows with you, so you can adapt quickly.
