What is CMMS, and How Can It Help You?

CMMS, or Computerized Maintenance Management System, has become a buzz term in the tech industry. In a nutshell, it’s a software package that enables companies to track and manage their assets, plus schedule maintenance and keep updated records of all of their jobs. CMMS offers a centralized location for data, so at any time, maintenance teams can determine which parts to order and which pieces of equipment are due for service. Additionally, the software allows companies to make informed decisions about resource allocation – for example, which locations require which parts and equipment and where inventory should be distributed to prevent either shortages or the proliferation of idle assets.

It’s clear that, when organizations are able to rely on accurate, real-time data, their bottom lines benefit in profound ways. Productivity doesn’t grind to a halt when a machine breaks down. Instead, better recordkeeping can help companies stave off breakdowns with regular preventative maintenance. They can order parts before they need them. And employees don’t have to waste time hunting down the items they need, or searching for maintenance histories on various pieces of equipment. They’re also better able to establish their priorities when they have a comprehensive view of their assets. And, for accounting and compliance purposes, accuracy is imperative, and mistakes can be costly. Any way you slice it, a reliable asset tracking system is a must.

But we’re not just talking about any asset tracking system. If it’s too complicated to use, that’s a non-starter. You need a system that’s straightforward and intuitive enough for any employee to use, regardless of his or her technical proficiency. And you need a platform that enables you to loop in every stakeholder involved in the life span of every one of our assets.
