The SAP PM Module provides support for maintenance operations (Work Orders, Preventive Maintenance Procedures, etc.) as an add-on to the SAP ERP Suite. But unless you are willing to expend considerable time and costs to configure and setup this module to work well with your SAP implementation, many users find it difficult and frustrating to use.  The end result is that little maintenance information is accurately captured and available for analysis to improve maintenance operations.

GP MaTe is an award winning CMMS/EAMS system that has been used by SAP customers around the world as an alternative to the SAP PM module. GP MaTe is integrated with SAP, using SAP’s IDOC interface, to provide rapid sharing of information between the systems and reduce any need for duplicate data entry.

Using GP MaTe in place of the SAP PM Module not only replaces this modules functionality, but provides many additional functions, such as:

  • Automated work flow to improve communications and scheduling of tasks
  • Drag and Drop assignment of tasks to personnel
  • Support for use of portable android devices for work order completion
  • Integrated Management of Change (MOC) capabilities
  • Linkage of Spare Parts to Assets
  • Support for Process Safety Management (PSM) and Mechanical Integrity (MI) requirements on Procurement and storeroom functions
  • Support for Operator Tours for data collection using android devices
  • And many more functions.

All in a much easier to use software package!
