Why Computerised Maintenance Management Systems?
Weakened western economies drive senior executives to examine every inch of corporate life to identify ways of meeting profitability targets. Companies need to get much more out of existing assets without spending any more money - and effective maintenance is integral to this success.
The maintenance team holds the key to maximising assets, minimising downtime and controlling costs. CMMS software provides the foundation to deliver efficient, effective maintenance regardless of the size and complexity of your maintenance team. CMMS software has evolved over many years to meet the needs of contemporary maintenance management, and they continue to do so by delivering more functionality, ease of use, greater mobility and visibility.
Five Key Benefits of Employing a CMMS:
- Process Improvement - eliminating the use of paper-based maintenance schedules and shortening lead times.
- Minimised downtime - achieving a balanced schedule of preventative and corrective maintenance to reduce equipment downtime and increase productivity.
- Maximised assets - intelligent reporting modules ensure that data isn't lost into a black hole, but is used to inform and actively improve all aspects of asset management.
- Reduced risk - managing compliance and support your client audits and demonstrate the effectiveness of your maintenance program.
- Enhanced morale - improving the visibility, professionalism and reputation of your team.
The business benefits of adopting a CMMS
are well documented and generally undeniable, yet industry analysts report that 70% of businesses are yet to implement CMMS software to manage their maintenance; this is particularly prevalent in small and medium manufacturing sites. However, recent industry commentators argue that factors are now at play that look set to change this phenomenon, making the use of CMMS, like the market-leading Idhammar Maintenance Management System, a business imperative.
