CMMS software stands for: computerized maintenance management system. Since the founding of our company in 1997 countless CMMS companies have come and gone. At this time there are several hundred software packages available. Because of this, choosing an enterprise asset management system software (EAM) package can be a daunting task. Our web site seeks to instruct on how, when and where it is appropriate to use a maintenance management software program and what benefits may be obtained from its use.
Our equipment asset management software system is designed, developed, supported and packaged in the United States of America. However, the system is used by facility managers, maintenance planners and maintenance managers in nearly forty (40) other countries worldwide for the past 20 years.
The Quick Start Guide explains the basics of log in and language selection (if not using the default English). Our CMMS program is available in any language. The sample database from the download for the full MaintSmart program contains the following languages.
- English (default)
- Arabic CMMS
- German CMMS

What is CMMS Software?
CMMS software (also known as a computerized maintenance management system) is used for managing equipment maintenance in any environment where equipment is used. Computerized maintenance management systems and enterprise asset management system software are synonymous terms used to described equipment asset management and maintenance programs. Manufacturing plants, colleges, municipal utilities, hospitality industry, government, fleet maintenance and facility management systems commonly use CMMS solutions for equipment asset management and for tracking maintenance costs. As such, CMMS software provides work order management, preventive maintenance, equipment downtime tracking and, in the case of MaintSmart, inventory and purchasing management. Additionally, software modules for automatic scheduling of work by date/time, meter or event save the manager time and money.
How is Work Scheduled and Managed?
Typically when equipment needs work and repair ticket is submitted by an equipment operator at their workstation or through a web page. Next the maintenance manager looks at the repair ticket on his/her computer and elevates it to full work order status. Additionally, a technician is assigned to the work along with a task list, parts list and required due date. Finally, when the job is finished the technician or the manager closes the work order. This job is archived for future reporting.
Another way to manage work is by using the preventive maintenance module. This module offers a simple list of calendar-based PM tasks. These tasks are easily checked off when completed. The software automatically reschedules these tasks and archive the history all in on step.
Both the preventive maintenance module or the work order module are used to issue work automatically to a printer or to email at exactly the right time. Lastly MaintSmart CMMS EAM provides an OPC data link directly to equipment. Ultimately equipment tells the software when it needs maintenance through this link. The system responds with the right work order at exactly the right moment. No other CMMS systems offer this time-saving feature.
What Real Benefits Come from Analysis and Reporting?
Reporting and analysis of maintenance data is often the "payoff" with maintenance management CMMS solutions. First of all, maintenance history gives insight into future equipment performance. Reliability analysis links with the preventive maintenance module suggesting the correct preventive task and interval. This provides an interactive predictive maintenance capability not found in most maintenance management systems. With this in mind, the ability to create accurate PM task lists with applicable intervals saves time and money immediately.
Reporting tools included in this CMMS EAM include: Crystal Reports, direct Excel export, direct web based export, OLAP reporting tools and raw data export. The OLAP reporting module uses a simple drag and drop capability. The user easily creates customized reports of any data by dropping various fields onto the report. This useful report builder generates a corresponding chart with the report automatically. Best of all the user can import the entire data set to Excel for more analysis with one button-click. It really couldn't get much simpler that that, could it? This report generator uses all data in the CMMS so create any report you need from any part of the program.
What Maintenance Software Modules are Included?
Preventative maintenance management is important to maintain equipment life and reliability. This CMMS system provides a simple way to track and schedule preventive maintenance. Moreover, this module has a way to link maintenancetasks to reliability analysis to optimize the PM task lists then adjust maintenance task intervals based upon MTBF.
Tracking down time (equipment failure analysis) is the best way to positively identify problem equipment, procedures and personnel issues quickly and efficiently. No only is this information used to track specific problems, to also guides the maintenance manager with OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) and reliability analysis.
Inventory use is a big cost center for many equipment maintenance operations. Track spares usage, purchase requisitions, purchase approvals, purchase orders and even invoice matching. This CMMS is a complete purchasing system integrated into a maintenance software system.
