Having used FastMaint for several years now, I have found that the software works great, and the reports generated are what I like the best. It is easy to track costs on each piece of equipment, as well as downtime.
Really, the only complaint I have is the number of steps it takes to print work orders. I would like to see one-click printing.
I would say give this a try, and you will not be disappointed. Be sure and try the reports.
