Mobile CMMS vs. Web CMMS ~ What's the Difference?
Smartphones come with a web browser; this enables most smartphones to display web pages. Since this is the case why not simply run a web-based CMMS on your Android or iPhone? While this is definitely possible there are several problems with this approach. First of all, web pages must be sizable to fit both a small phone display and also as much larger desktop or laptop display. This is problematic and usually means the user has to scroll a lot the screen to see the various essential screen components. The MaintSmart Mobile CMMS software (smartphone application) is a native Android and iPhone application developed with the latest Microsoft Xamarin and .NET technology. As such, our mobile CMMS runs very fast and is optimized for a smartphone device.
What is Needed to Run MaintSmart Mobile?

Initially you need MaintSmart Enterprise to configure the needed data parts for the mobile CMMS app. For example the mobile app requires:

- Equipment details (lat and long) if using the mapping feature.
