Leading software solutions provider, Techs4Biz Australia
provides useful suggestions for companies seeking to implement computerised maintenance management systems (CMMS).
Before investing in a CMMS suite, a business is advised to consider the following points to ensure selection of a money-saving, long-term CMMS solution.
CMMS system as in-house or SaaS implementation
The provider must be able to offer both in-house implementations as well as Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions. It is important to have an ongoing relationship with the CMMS provider to ensure any problem along the way is addressed promptly.
The CMMS system should be a versatile solution that addresses the business’ unique needs. CMMS systems should fit the business, not the other way around.
Ensure that the CMMS solution is purchased from a continuously growing and evolving company as it is important that the provider continues to upgrade and improve the system.
Advanced yet still easy to use
CMMS systems must be sophisticated yet still easy to use, especially on PDAs, tablets and other mobile devices. The solution must not only be intuitive, but also suit the specific requirements of the user with the flexibility for components to be changed depending on the task.
