Custodian CMMS is a unique software that boosts maintenance management and productivity for organizations in several industries. A notable example is government utilities and infrastructure, including public water management. Water utilities strive to save costs, and an important way is to switch from paper-based reactive maintenance to a planned strategy with a computerized system; this can achieve cost savings from 12 to 18 per cent. With a CMMS solution, utility maintenance is efficient and inexpensive.
The four steps of evaluation
A CMMS maintenance management system provides the foundation of cost-effective decisions through life-cycle cost analysis, when it collects equipment, labour, and material costs in work orders assigned to individual assets and inspection asset-condition information. Among the main reasons to invest in CMMS software like Custodian’s: to reduce the cost of work orders, by choosing preventive maintenance over reactive repairs; to adjust maintenance strategies to extend asset life; and to leverage the existing workforce and justify staffing requirements.
What makes Custodian CMMS software an ideal choice as part of an overall asset-management program for a water-utility division is that it satisfies the needs of four common processes in maintenance management. CMMS evaluation and selection must take into consideration business processes, the work-order process, the asset-tracking process, and the commissioning process. In addition, basic CMMS functionality includes asset inventory, service requests, work orders, preventive-maintenance tasks and schedules, inventory management and purchasing, condition and risk analysis, assessment and renewal planning, data analytics, KPI metrics, risk visualization, reporting, and documentation.
The CMMS selection process for water utilities has technical requirements that can align platform and software versions to simplify the integration and data-migration processes. What makes Custodian the right choice is its assurance of product longevity, training resources, references, and skilled software design and creation.
Custodian CMMS is the core engine of asset-data collection, storage, analysis, and execution of operational and maintenance strategies and activities. It enables municipalities and utilities to manage public assets and community services seamlessly, while responding to citizen inquiries and concerns in a cost-justified process. To keep water and more working smoothly, choose Custodian CMMS.
