From managing maintenance and service requests at a medium-sized enterprise to keeping track of ongoing equipment maintenance at a large construction site, a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is an extremely useful tool for your business’ needs.
When choosing a CMMS system, businesses look for preventive maintenance, seamless equipment management, solid asset assignments, and insightful maintenance reports, which should lead to reduced maintenance costs.
Struggling to take complete charge of your construction equipment? A construction equipment manager deals with procurement, usage, management, and maintenance of equipment ranging from expensive heavy-duty machines such as cranes, forklifts, bulldozers, and excavators, to smaller tools and accessories. Tracking such a large and diverse inventory of equipment can be challenging, especially if you are using manual methods.
Improving the quality of competitiveness with equipment maintenance software
Equipment maintenance is a lot more complex than it seems. The process consists of tools, fixtures, and machines along with a host of operational, managerial and technical activities. These include day-to-day operations needed to uphold the performance of equipment throughout its useful life. When you make a huge investment in your business equipment, you need to make sure that the productivity of this investment is sustained in order to compete with other companies. Events that interrupt or slow down the process of production weaken the competitiveness of organizations.
Using an equipment maintenance solution will affect three prime elements of competitiveness: cost, product lead time and quality. Machines that are well-maintained increase operational consistency and quality, hold tolerances better and help minimize reworking and scrapping processes. Moreover, the total production cost goes down with an increase in productivity. The lead time is also considerably shortened with the reduced need for retooling and downtimes.
Maintenance solutions were once believed to be an unnecessary expense that could be done away with, but that’s all changing now. Such a system will maximize the use of time, assets and power along with improving maintenance efficiency.
A CMMS compliant equipment management software helps industries plan and schedule equipment maintenance to enhance general plant efficiency and reduce downtime.

Your services and maintenance crew might be spending a lot of money replacing faulty gears or figuring out why a particular compressor keeps breaking down. Maybe your services schedule consists of a drab Excel sheet, or just a vague maintenance plan in the back of your head. If that’s how you’ve always done things, there’s a better way! Businesses that don’t make equipment maintenance management part of their regular workflows can really suffer in the long-run, particularly from a financial perspective. This is why equipment maintenance software can be a great resource for asset-intensive businesses.
