Eliminating your maintenance problems lands on your shoulders.

Yes, that’s a lot of responsibility.

It’s also why we thought this article would point you in the right direction and even elevate your mood.

So that we’re on the same page, we’d like to help – in every way possible – to eliminate all your maintenance concerns.

But, we figured reducing them would be the logical first step.

You might be thinking to yourself: “They’re right; it would be nice to like using my CMMS software.”

We know we’re not mindreaders, but are we close?

Reducing the impact of maintenance related problems will be the first step on your journey to eliminating workplace stress and achieving Proactive Operations.

CMMS software is the best thing since paper, so you can stop using paper and start “loving” your maintenance solution.

We’re ready to show you maintenance made easy.

Are you ready?

Any facility manager could tell you:

Purchasing a new CMMS is a stressful and overwhelming process.

When you’re already faced with the apparent challenges of operating an existing unwieldy piece of software – it’s even worse!

We understand your struggle.

So much that we’ve spent the last several years working out the kinks.

You might think:

There’s no way to make this process an enjoyable one.

Well, friend, there is.

We’ve defined 14 rules that’ll change the way you purchase CMMS software.

We call them ‘rules’ because if you don’t live by them, you’ll select the wrong system.

Your operation won’t become a profit center.

We don’t ever want that to happen.

Follow these rules, and you’ll be able to make the purchasing process effortless (and stress-less!) and your maintenance initiatives a breeze.

Now:

You need your cloud-based CMMS software training to be easy, so your team will use it, right?

Then, let’s start by getting the buy-in from your team – the people that’ll be trained and using the system.

Keeping your property humming is a must.

You’ve got this primary responsibility.

But it’s wearing you down.

Why?

The cost to maintain equipment is breaking the bank.

One thing after another is breaking, and when that happens, you must fix it or buy a new one!

Fixing the problem costs a lot of money.

That’s your most significant issue.

But, you can ‘fix’ the more significant problem.

How?

By using a CMMS with preventive maintenance (PM).

It’s your operation's best solution to this recurring setback.

This software will help you counter the cyclical problems of having to fix or buy new equipment.

It will help you reduce downtime and increase your efficiency, which takes your maintenance operation from a cost center to a profit center.

Wouldn’t it be nice to know your property is running smoothly?

We think so, which is why we’ve put together the following insights on how PM software can help your property boost uptime.

Are you ready?

Let’s get to it.

Computerized Maintenance Management System is as complicated to say as it is to choose.

It doesn’t have to be.

That’s the purpose of this article.

We’ll stick with CMMS software and provide you the most straightforward format for selecting your next maintenance application.

Fair enough? Good.

We do feel your pain, though – because we’ve built one.

Whether this is your first time, or you’re ditching your legacy system and moving to a new one, know we’re here to provide you with useable insight into making the right choice.

Before you even begin comparing software providers, there are a couple of points to consider:

  1. How do you start the process of finding a CMMS?
  2. What are your objectives?

Maintenance systems can be cumbersome and full of features.

How do you sift through the noise?

How do you find the one which brings value to your property and with the highest potential return on investment?

There’s quite a bit to consider.

You need your CMMS software to be used.

So, start by engaging the team that will be using the solution to help you.

Your operation’s performance is the result of your leadership.

You define your operation.

But the job is not always easy.

That’s why we believed writing this article is necessary.

It’s critical to the longevity of your career and property.

We get it; you work your tail off to ensure your facility is up to compliance standards.

That requires a lot of work and management.

You might even be laughing at this article.

But, when is the last time you took a step back to grasp your reality?

It has probably been a while, right?

We all get caught up in the minutiae of our day-to-day tasks.

It makes it easy to miss the global strategy.

In fact, a proactive facility manager would tell you that it’s vital to your operation’s health to take a step back and look at your strengths and weaknesses.

Why?

You might catch something to fix that you’ve been spinning your wheels on for a while.

Well, today we’re telling you to hit the pause button and take a moment of your year to focus on being proactive.

What do you say?

The right CMMS can help you reduce operational and equipment downtime.

Since your maintenance department is the foundation for your property, viewing it as a cost center is no longer an option.

Lackluster employees, incomplete procedures, and overall low efficiency can lead to more time spent working on the equipment than it is working.

What’s the effect of this?

The scariest result of all is lost dollars – lots of them!

We’ve realized downtime is a disastrous consequence for managers.

Introducing preventative maintenance software to your maintenance team allows for your well-thought-out plans to be put into action.
