When manufacturers grow bigger and more complex, they need smarter, quicker, and leaner ways to operate. The Custodian CMMS maintenance management solution is one example. Managing maintenance tasks the old way – by pencil and paper, or spreadsheet – is inefficient. CMMS software like Custodian has revolutionized how manufacturers conduct maintenance operations. Here is how the state of managing maintenance has changed over the past two decades.
Fast generation of accurate reports
Businesses in a broad variety of industrial, service, and corporate markets have increasingly adopted CMMS systems, because they can monitor inventory levels, track work orders, generate accurate reports quickly, and determine immediately what assets need preventive maintenance. Preventive maintenance is generally preferred to reactive maintenance, since the latter can lead to unexpected shutdowns.
The Custodian maintenance management solution has transformed traditional maintenance-management approaches. Spreadsheet methods, manual or electronic, provide a limited range of analyses based on data input. Manual maintenance management also lacks real-time tracking and updates, and they also cost more and reduce productivity. Traditional management cannot send alerts or reminders regarding work orders in progress, leaving the job to maintenance managers. And pre-automated systems rely on technicians completing work orders on paper and waiting for the appropriate sources to process them.
Automated maintenance-management software was invented half a century ago, and it evolved quickly when computer-networking capabilities emerged. Wireless and cellular technologies moulded it further, and then mobile access made it possible for users to place work orders, order parts, and track progress remotely. And preventive-maintenance programming was a leap in facility management. All these breakthroughs have made the CMMS maintenance management solution attractive to companies of various sizes and industries.
Three key benefits of Custodian CMMS: automation, mobile access, and customizability. This system automates all tasks and involves no more effort than a click or a tap; technician are not burdened with paperwork, with all orders and tracking done electronically. Mobile access with cameras and bar codes save time and minimize errors. And users can adapt CMMS to the organization, rather than vice-versa.
