This preventive maintenance software comparison list should be used to compare to our cmmms software competitors. CMMS software comparison data is especially useful given the number of CMMS companies that come and go every year (typically 50-100 go out of business and 50-100 replace these failed companies).

Here are a few CMMS Software comparison items that separate MaintSmart from the competition:

  • Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) - OLAP can be used to create a three-dimensional data view using drag and drop. As you create this data view a corresponding chart is also created. This entire CMMS data set may then be exported to a report in Adobe Acrobat or other format. Every screen in this CMMS application has the ability to export it's data to an OLAP component for further analysis. These OLAP screen may also be saves as Excel sheets.
  • Overall Equipment Effectiveness- Also called OEE is used to provide four KPIs regarding equipment Availability, Quality of product and Performance. These three KPIs are then multiplied by each other to obtain overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). With this CMMS software you are rewarded for entering down time and expected run time data.
  • Reliability Analysis - MaintSmart is the only cmms software that uses military standard reliability analysis to guide you towards critically important corrective actions. Reliability analysis generates Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) results and use this data to help you adjust preventive maintenance task intervals and circumvent failures. Increasing or Decreasing Failure Rate data informs you of the success of your maintenance management efforts.
  • Translate to Any Language - This CMMS package may be translated into: Arabic, Russian, Chinese, Spanish, German, French, actually any language. The default language is English.
