Maintenance Managers have realized that choosing a CMMS is an excellent fit for your organization, but of course it takes time and consideration of many factors. Let’s see why your company has to make the right choice in selecting CMMS software.
If it is important to be able to access the system outside of your company’s network, the most preferred option is Cloud CMMS. Using this, you can access the system on the move as long as there is an internet connection. But what if you don’t have?
If your organization doesn’t have an IT department or expertise to support server(s), a Cloud based solution is again optimal with respect to maintenance. At the same time, Cloud computing means that all of your stuff is on the Web. So, what if some sensitive information like client’s addresses and phone numbers are on the internet? Give a thought.
Last but not least, web based CMMS doesn’t support integration of equipment easily. Peripherals such as printers, scanners, secure access systems, and mobile devices must be synchronised. Collect as much information as you can about integration of all your devices. It could end up as a headache if you do not know how to pull in all your equipment.
