Maintenance control software, also known as computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software, has been around for more than two decades now. Over the years, DPSI has invested heavily in further developing its software in order to keep pace with emerging technology and market trends. The following are 5 market trends that are driving evolution in the CMMS EAM software industry.
1. Mobile technology
Mobile technology has made a significant impact on CMMS/EAM software. Mobile devices have dramatically improved productivity by giving maintenance technicians access to work orders and equipment information right at their fingertips. They can also enter data into their maintenance management systems while on the go. For example, they could create work orders, record inventory received, and record safety data or readings. Barcode technology further expedites data entry with mobile devices.
