Why You Don’t Want Free Maintenance Software

You know it’s time for a change. And free software from the Internet seems like an easy way to test things out.

Many maintenance managers start their search for CMMS software by typing “free maintenance software” in a Google search box.

But free maintenance software has hidden costs that can mean paying a higher price.

Why Don’t I Want Free Maintenance Software?

Trying pared-down software with limited functionality wastes time and energy—two things typically in short supply for maintenance managers.

It’s hard to get a realistic perspective on the true capabilities of maintenance software with free maintenance software. As any maintenance manager knows, there’s a difference between cost and value.

“Free” sounds like a great deal, until you consider…

  • Limited tools and functionality
  • Absence of security features to protect data
  • Restricted user access
  • Lack of scalability
  • No training or support
  • Inability to sync with other business systems

You can’t get a full picture of what maintenance software can do for your organization if you’re limited to whatever is offered for free. So, after all that effort, you’re missing out on finding the right maintenance software for you.

But I Just Want to Try It Out

We get it. But there’s a better way—free software demos.

When you test drive a car, you don’t just randomly take any car you found on the Internet out on the road. You don’t want to waste time test driving minivans when you really need a 4-wheel drive with a 6.0L, 8-cylinder engine.

Your time is valuable, and it’s important that you spend it wisely.

When you do your research on CMMS software, you’ll soon see the benefits of scalable CMMS software with an easy-to-use interface and advanced tools. And a little time spent finding the right software means you’re saving a lot of time (and money) in the future.

That’s why MPulse offers free demos and great customer service to make sure your software purchase means your needs. So, you’re on the right path from the very beginning.

We know how to make your CMMS implementation a success—and we’re happy to share our experience with you.
