Maintenance technicians are on the move now more than ever before. At the same time, their demand for quick access to information about equipment and repairs to work productively has to be considered by managers. This was a challenge against technology and yes, of course they succeeded. Moving information into Cloud CMMS, maintenance technicians begun accessing data on site without having to visit the office to collect work orders or do other paperwork.
Besides the usual advantages of using a computerised maintenance system, Cloud CMMS system took a giant leap to give a few extra benefits, be it smaller or larger enterprise.
A recent report says, implementing in the United States on 558 companies, CMMS Software showed the average benefits:
• Maintenance productivity increased by 30%
• Equipment downtime by 20%
• Material cost-cut by 20%
• MRO (Maintenance, repairs, operational) inventory reduced to 18%
Besides, there are many other reasons why firms are considering going Cloud
Smartphones such as the iPhone and tablet like iPad are becoming common tools in the workplace. These devices are more portable than a laptop but not as rugged as a PDA (Personal Digital Assistants)
In many cases, the use of a good maintenance consultant would be well advised to achieve smooth and effective integration. Yes, they would charge you a few dollars but never skimp on this cost unless you really have the internal expertise since it can really allow the full CMMS benefits to be realized.
Moreover, the existing infrastructure online Asset Management Software is available from many locations. So, no need for application installation but only a web browser will do.
Lastly, you have to know setting up the asset tree, offering sufficient training to staffs, entering the inventory and preventative maintenance templates takes minimum of 3months. But no worries, after this you are sure to see Return on Investment (ROI) that far exceeds the cost of a Cloud CMMS system. So, move on Go Cloud.
