How Does EAM Differ from CMMS Software?
A CMMS, or computerized maintenance management system, is a software package that maintains a database of information about an organization’s maintenance operations. It’s primarily used to help maintenance workers do their jobs more effectively and, like EAM systems, it falls under the umbrella category of maintenance management software.
Both CMMS and EAM systems can help organizations enhance maintenance operations, assist in ensuring compliance, improve safety, decrease machine downtime and maximize assets’ return on investment (ROI). To determine which solution is best for your company, there are many factors to consider. Overall software intent or primary goals, company size, number of sites and budget should all be taken into account.
