Why it’s time to switch to a CMMS


Manually scheduling your company’s maintenance tasks takes up a lot of time and it is easy to miss things when you’re busy with other jobs. More and more firms are moving towards full automation of their maintenance needs, using CMMS (Computerised Maintenance Management Software). Why? Here are just some of the benefits:


CMMS reduces costs

Perhaps most importantly of all, moving to a fully automated CMMS system significantly reduces costs in your business. It helps to reduce equipment downtime and unexpected shutdowns, so there is far less risk of interruption to your daily operations, and you’ll end up paying less overtime to your staff, too. And when you keep on top of your maintenance tasks, you’ll be preserving the life of your equipment too – meaning it’ll be longer before they need to be replaced.


CMMS improves asset & inventory management

Moving to a CMMS system means that you’ll have a much clearer idea of your stock levels at any given time. All those parts you need to have readily available can be counted and recorded, so you can keep a keen eye on what’s likely to run out and when. This will mean far fewer delays due to missing assets and lack of stock. And because it’s all fully automated you’ll be eliminating the risk of human error.


CMMS aids workflow

When you or your Maintenance Manager can automate the daily, slightly mundane tasks that keep a business up and running, you’ll find that you will be able to spend more time managing and overseeing the operations. Productivity will rise and workstreams will become far more efficient, saving you a lot of time that would otherwise have been wasted.


CMMS gives you great business insights

One of the things our customers love most about HolisTech is its ability to track and report on a wealth of different metrics. It’ll help you identify how long it takes to repair equipment, see who has carried out the repair and how much it cost, and help you spot which assets are costing your business the most. Given the granular level of detail stored on your CMMS you’ll be able to track and report on virtually every area of your business, which will make the board meetings a doddle!


Technology is advancing at a great pace, and taking advantage of all the benefits that an automated system such as HolisTech offers is a sure-fire way to boost productivity and revenue while keeping business disruption to an absolute minimum.
