Preparing for the unexpected is in the maintenance team’s job description. However, proactive planning makes a difference when things go wrong.
CMMS software can help your team get ready for those unexpected repairs. As a result, your team can react quickly when those calls and work orders come in. That not only improves your response time, but also reduces stress levels.
Asset Information & History
One of the most important things you’ll need is information.
CMMS software makes asset information, historical data, vendor information, media files, and other details easily accessible by the people who need it. All this information gathered through your CMMS work order system with every assigned task.
Even better, if you’ve made the move to mobile, your team can easily find this information while they’re in the field or on the shop floor.
With good data to work from, your crew can make good decisions. It also eliminates lost information, reducing confusion and errors.
Parts & Supplies
Inventory management with CMMS software can help quickly identify what you need for which piece of equipment. CMMS gives you all the information you need at your fingertips—including stocking levels, reorder points, storage locations, and supplier information.
When an emergency arises, this information provides critical data for making cost-efficient decisions. It also helps you save time and money by improving tracking, stocking, ordering, and inventory processes—so, you’re ready when you need to be.
Service Requesting with Approval Routing
Service request features in CMMS software enable maintenance customers to enter and initiate service requests and monitor the progress of their requests as your team completes repairs.
MPulse Service Requesting with Approval Routing takes that to the next level by automatically filtering maintenance requests based on your predetermined criteria. MPulse then quickly routes them to the appropriate people for review and approval. Plus, easy-to-manage security controls ensure the right people—and only the right people—have access to the right information.
MPulse Service Requesting with Approval Routing prevents delays with automatic routing, and promotes efficient communication between requesters, approvers, and maintenance technicians. It also provides a clear audit trail for rock-solid compliance tracking.
Don’t wait for a disaster to strike to prepare your maintenance team for a crisis. Streamline your maintenance workflows with CMMS software, so you’re ready when you need to be.
