A Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) is a software solution that centralizes maintenance information to help with the management of maintenance activities for an organization’s facility’s maintenance operation. CMMS software is used to perform maintenance on equipment, assets and property. It provides the ability to track completed and assigned tasks, helps maintenance workers do their jobs more effectively, and produces status reports to help management make more informed decisions across all maintenance activities while optimizing the utilization and availability of physical equipment, machinery, communications, plant infrastructures and other assets.
CMMS software solutions include:
With a CMMS, facilities maintenance and operations departments can take charge of assets, work orders, work requests, preventive maintenance tasks, inventory and parts, condition monitoring, and maintenance schedules. Maintenance activities can be assessed, monitored and analyzed to ensure the operation is optimized. It allows teams to align maintenance practices and activities with other departments and overall business goals and administration of resources such as labor, material, and tools to achieve sustainable and dependable operational stability.
With a CMMS solution, operators can organize maintenance activities and schedule technicians with prioritization. Organizations now understand the health of their maintenance operation through continuous monitoring of all maintenance activities and can control inventory costs to ensure optimization for overall facilities department.
Although FacilityForce can be called an IWMS, we prefer to call it Facilities Resource Planning (FRP) because it goes beyond the capabilities of IWMS to address the unique needs of public sector government organizations.
With FacilityForce Facilities Resource Planning (FRP), we combine the best of breed capabilities of CMMS, EAM, CAFM and IWMS with deeper financial management in one unified solution. FacilityForce FRP applies intense accounting principles including fund allocation and grant management to ensure organizations maximize investments while maintaining and driving efficiencies across your most important resources – your real estate, buildings, people, projects, and things.
FacilityForce takes a holistic approach to facility and asset management, handling everything from commissioning and deploying assets, to preventive and corrective maintenance, to condition assessment and identification of deficiencies, to capital planning and improvement projects, and more. The FacilityForce integrated solution provides a complete picture of facility and asset costs, condition, deficiencies and expected life in order to strategically plan for your organization's mission and growth.
FacilityForce Operate provides a proactive and systematic way to stay on top of your preventive maintenance (PM). Simply establish your preventive maintenance standards, create templates that define the details of the work to be performed including frequency and required materials, and then let the PM Generator do its magic creating preventive maintenance work orders that ensure you maximize the useful life of your assets.
The Operate Work module in FacilityForce helps you track the status and cost of work requests across your organization. Work orders can be for planned or corrective work, and have any number of phases that break a work project into segments performed by various tradespeople from different shops.
FacilityForce provides a comprehensive, end-to-end solution for everything facilities including the ability to:
The best integration is "no integration", meaning everything you need resides in a single software platform as opposed to integrating disparate systems. FacilityForce is designed from the ground up to use a common database of properties and assets, which provides a seamless experience across the board.
