Before computers were created, I can’t imagine how large organizations and companies managed their resources. Just imagine those zoos, hospitals, universities, manufacturing plants and other big facilities. For sure, they spent a lot of manpower and resources just keeping track of and managing their assets, schedules, work orders and facilities.
With the advent of technology, everything looked and became easier. Organizations can use maintenance software and other application software to manage and keep track of their resources. It’s now easier to see which equipment needs to be fixed, tuned-up or replaced thus helping the organization save money by (lowering maintenance cost), improve labor productivity and increase the useful life of assets.
A lot of software development companies offer maintenance software and other computerized maintenance management software (CMMS). The current trend now is on web-based CMMS that make it easier for users to access the system without the need for the organization to install software on each computer that will access the system.
Good CMMS should be easy to use, intuitive and customizable. It is also advantageous if the program can be accessed even in internet-capable cellular phones and other handheld devices so that users who are on the go can easily access the data in real time.
