When analyzing the keys to success for your operation, maintenance is a top priority. Lost time due to equipment failure means a measurable decrease in profits. Therefore, downtime needs to be avoided at all costs. Plus, failure to maintain equipment assets can result in out-of-specification products. Fortunately, the proper software helps you avoid shutdowns and exceed your customers’ expectations. Read on to learn more about GP MaTe’s flexible maintenance software and the benefits for your business.

What to Look for in Maintenance Software

Flexible maintenance software helps your business operate more efficiently and effectively. When you’re choosing maintenance software for your company, you need to:

  • Determine Your Problem Areas: Identifying your problem areas requires you to review your standard maintenance procedures. Your maintenance team needs to provide an asset ownership list so you can easily organize them and decide on a maintenance schedule. The more details you have, the better. Detailed information helps you better understand and keep track of equipment and maintenance schedules, spare parts in stock, assets, and other valuable information.
  • Clarify Your Needs and Wants: Create a list of the features you need and want, then organize them to help provide a clear picture of your must-have maintenance software features. It’s best to create a list sorted by its priority.
  • Proceduralize Your Maintenance Operations: Create a work flow that will meet your organization’s needs to optimize your human and spare parts resources. Next, map these procedures into your CMMS’ workflow tools.
  • Outstanding Support: Don’t get left in the dark once you implement a system. Ensure your maintenance software offers quick access to support services in the event of a problem of if you need an upgrade.
