If you haven’t upgraded to a mobile CMMS yet, what are you waiting for?
These days mobile technology is more stable and cost effective than ever before. Organizations that had been reluctant to equip their maintenance technicians with mobile devices are now moving forward and deploying them due to their low cost and ease of use in the field.
The reasons to use a mobile CMMS tool outweigh the small upfront costs of purchasing the technology needed to use one.
The benefits of a CMMS tool as outlined in a recent article by FMandBeyond are as follows:
Paperless work order management: Managing work orders either on or off-site saves significant amounts of times, allowing data entry that’s immediately synchronized into the CMMS organization-wide. This also alleviates the need to handwrite notes that can be miscommunicated, and also take time to reenter at a later time onsite.
Inventory management: Having synchronized inventory management is another efficient tool in the field–allowing immediate access to available assets, as well as equipment that may be issued to other jobs or locations. At the touch of a finger, a maintenance technician can see if an asset is available and immediately disperse it to the needed location.
Asset management and QR codes: Having an asset’s entire maintenance history available instantly helps with assigning jobs, or assessing potential issues. Quick Response or QR codes provide a tool to scan an asset’s code, bringing up its entire history–including preventive maintenance, malfunctions, reactive maintenance, etc.
