These days, it is not as simple as writing work orders down on paper or scheduling maintenance tasks for your assets on your Outlook calendar or on an Excel spreadsheet anymore. As your customer base grows, and the number of your assets increase, you will need a more streamlined and efficient system to manage your workflow. That is when it comes time to bring up investing in the right computerized maintenance management system, also known as CMMS, to your superiors and higher-ups. When choosing the right CMMS for your organization, it is important to consider many factors.
