Computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) maintains a database of information about an organization’s maintenance operations and helps maintenance workers do their jobs more efficiently. As a maintenance manager, you probably understand the value that maintenance software provides, but upper management at your organization will surely ask you to justify the expense before giving you the green light.
One of the driving factors that will likely determine your organization’s decision is the return on investment (ROI) that CMMS software provides. As long as it is implemented properly, maintenance control software has a strong ROI. In addition to extending the life of equipment and increasing its reliability, a preventative maintenance system could reduce costs by as much as 12% to 18%, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
