ManagerPlus Software


 

ManagerPlus is a CMMS solution that helps growing organizations manage their assets, maintenance, inventory, and purchasing. ManagerPlus is fit for asset-intensive industries like agriculture, construction, transportation, manufacturing, and more, helping reduce operating expenses while increasing return on investment.

With ManagerPlus, companies will have a single point of contact for all critical asset and maintenance information. With three different solutions to choose from, companies have access to a system matched to their business and can scale to meet their expanding needs in the future.

ManagerPlus helps to improve company efficiency by streamlining current maintenance, inventory management, and purchasing processes. ManagerPlus effectively tracks a few to thousands of assets, across a single or multiple locations. In addition to assets, they offer modules for reporting and contact management, barcoding, mobile work orders, automated alerts, and more.

ManagerPlus comes in two variants - ManagerPlus Desktop, which can be installed locally, and ManagerPlus Cloud, which is a web-based SaaS application and can be accessed through a web browser on any internet-enabled device.

The product is continually evolving which is good but there is a lack of communication between the development staff and user community. It is extremely rare for me to hear that I product suggestion or fix has been implemented, most time I find out through self discovery since I don't have time to read through there release notes on a daily basis.

Pros

This is a very cost effective product that has the functionality needed to control fleet maintenance and cost allocations. It is easy to use and has a consistent feel through most of the modules and functions

Cons

Some of the requires we have like tracking rentals are not well supported but it is flexible enough that you can work around every limitation I have found. I would like to see more robust reporting and controls on data elements but I believe that these are in development and what I have seen of them have been promising so far

Learned Managers Plus quickly. It was an easy system to follow and learn with no real difficulties. I was trained easily and have trained others in Managers Plus. It seems that everyone is easy to navigate this system although it can be slow at times when trying to save a work order or print the work order.

Pros

Easy to navigate and fill in information.

Cons

Sometimes it glitches and takes awhile to get to another page or save the work order i am working on.

It seemed like a start up piece of software that needed to have all the glitches worked out for it to work properly.

Pros

A good system if you have a small business with basic needs

Cons

It is very confusing trying to keep up with all the PM's because the reset date was always set off the completion date. Yes It could be changed with a set date but that change would adversely affect some other part of the system

Managerplus Pro - Seems left behind by the company

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

The product works adequately for us for asset tracking, work orders and logs. We never implemented use of their purchasing or inventory modules.

We purchased this software in about 2012. Ever since, there have been few updates for it, and none in the last couple of years. The company is moving away from this and towards a cloud-based CMMS, and the lack of significant upgrades to this product reflect that.
We contacted them about switching to their cloud-based product, and they never even bothered to respond to us, so we are now looking at other products.

Pros

Cheap(ish)

Cons

Inability to sort numbered assets properly. (eg: 1, 11, 12, 2 instead of 1, 2, 11, 12)

Once a top level asset is created, it cannot be placed as a sub-asset under another top level asset. We expanded to more than one facility and had no option to change the asset tree to reflect our company growth. Rather than completely re-write our database from scratch, we left it as is, and it is a bit of a mess now. It does not support nested assets.

Search function works poorly. Searching for an asset with 'forklift' in the name returns 0 results, yet we have over 40 forklifts in the system.

Unless you pay the big bucks for the enterprise edition, almost nothing in the UI is customizable.

Advice to Others

I cannot honestly recommend this product to anyone. Maybe their cloud-based product is different, but I can't say, as I've never seen it.

Ease-of-use

I've been using this product for approximately 8 years now. I only use the work order, log and asset modules. We tried using the inventory module, however it does not function they way we would need it to, to serve our purpose. The module for assets is great. I would say it probably stores more info than we actually need. The work order and log modules I basically use on a daily basis. Over all I am satisfied with their functionality. I also like that this program hardly ever crashes or has technical issues. That to me, is a huge plus!

Pros

Easy to learn to use and train others. The reporting functionality is great, especially for work order repairs in order to find past work that has been done on our trucks. Able to run log reports for fuel, engine hours etc with ease. Entering work order info is easy as well as entering fuel, mileage and engine hours in the logs.

Cons

I don't like the fact that i have to use my mouse so much when entering work orders. I feel like the task would flow much smoother if I could hit F keys to move to a different tab or drop down list etc rather than having to stop typing to use the mouse to get to the next area I want to be in. I wish I could import spreadsheet data to the log module rather than having to print the spreadsheet and then key it all in manually ( but i hear thats available in the upgraded version ).

Advice to Others

I would suggest to pass up the Manager Plus Pro and go with the more upgraded version. But either way, Manager plus products and the company are great and easy to work with.

All cmms software require time to make the data base, time that I usually dont have, so I only use this software for Preventive Maintenace. The economic chapters of the software I havent got around to using the. I dont know if those aspects will be easy or hard to use, but for the meantime its giving me great results. If youre like me and are not that concerned with the money side of maintenance you can try the cheap ManagerPlus module. It doesnt have a lot of choices that I have heard the other two have, but its enough for me.

Pros

I dont have to use an excel spread sheet anymore. Timely maintenance with their correspondent reminders are making my job a lot easier.
Cheap for twenty something dollars a month (per user).

Cons

Cant use it via your cellphone.

Advice to Others

Try the cheap one. Although the other two modules have more functionality, you don't have to start away with those.

ManagerPlus Small Business module.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Cloud based ManagerPlus comes in three different modules: Small Business, Corporate, and Enterprise. The one I use is the Small Business one, the reason? because its a small business (medium sized machining shop). This module comes with the necessary tools to do maintenance according to schedule. This tools are: work order management, assets management, preventive maintenance, parts list, and meter tracking (I haven't uploaded info to the meter tracking. I will do that in the future). I haven't tried other CMMS's, but I was open to the purchase of this software because it offers the opportunity to buy the one that fits your budget and needs. And my budget was enough to afford 25 dollars per user each month.

Pros

*Different modules give you the chance to buy according to your budget and needs.
*Great tutorials that can cover from uploading assets to training technicians to open/close work orders.

Cons

*Not compatible with Mac.
*The tutorials come in packages sold separately.

Advice to Others

Ask for a demos. Customer support is great. Or you can try the 25 per month module so if you don't like it the losses are small.

You cannot get support after 4 pm. There is no way to modify anything, they only take suggestions, then they say they don't really look at the suggestions, it just goes in a box. They show you a different program than what you get. The ads on not truthful. There is no way to try a demo, they just show it to you during a Turbo Meeting. There are no downtime reports. You cannot modify reports. They do not try and work with you, they just want their money. We did not get any training as they promised.

Recommendations

Do not even try out this CMMS, wait, they wont let you try it, they show it to you in a TurboMeeting.

Customer service is usually efficient with their responses to my questions. It's good to see more training webinars becoming available. When we first started using this program there were hardly any.

Likes Least

That the reports module is not user friendly. We had the desktop Manager Plus Enterprise previously and the reports were much better and easier to configure than on the Cloud version. I don't use the report module for this reason. I download to Excel and generate from there. It's disappointing that we pay for it and really are not able to utilize it.

Wish the Cloud version was more user friendly to iPads and iPhones. The different modules are not always easy to move around in or to scroll menus in as a desktop version is. All of our Mechanics use the Cloud in the field b/c of the info that we want them to have access to. That is their biggest complaint is not being able to navigate very easily.

The 15 minutes before the program logs you out automatically is very inconvenient. Would be nice to have the option of how long you want it to stay logged in.

Being able to attach larger than 4MB to an attachment would be nice. We have user manuals that we would like to put under attachments for our field mechanics and the cloud won't allow us b/c of the size. Some pictures have also ran into this issue.


Updates seem to take a long time to be released. Once a year seems like a long time, especially with an internet based program.

Recommendations

Make sure that if you use Apple products that you are satisfied with how Manager Plus will function.

I have been using this program for over six years now and i really like it . There are some things i need to go over which I may get help with in the webinars you now offer. One thing I have noticed is when I have an active workorder that I need to edit before I hit the complete workorder
field, it doesn't keep my changes so I need to go back into assets to add any changes that way. It would be nice if I could edit directly onto the active workorder , save the changes then hit the complete workorder field.

ManagerPlus provide monitoring and controlling of the DC Court¿s Equipment Preventative Maintenance Program. We are using the cloud version of the program and recently added the mobile application. Implementation was straight forward even with over 1000 assets and last month generated over 100 work orders from the Preventive Maintenance Schedules.
There are a numerous benefits that our organization is getting by using this software. We were able to consolidate all equipment information. We successfully used the Work Order module for some time and now are in the process of implementing the schedules and inventory modules.
For the basic user the simplicity of the program does not represent a challenge once is familiar with its layout. From the administrator perspective is a little more challenging but once the assets are uploaded the program offers a number of ways to review the data. Information can be viewed in the screen or there a number of reports that can be generated from the different modules. The reports also can be customized with some limitations. Data can be arranged in different ways but settings are not maintain once the page is reload.
The mobile application is basic and is more challenging to navigate. It should be and option to key in the asset number for review; the only option to get asset information is by barcode scanning. We trying to find out the best way to display work orders and looks like this will be possible by setting up favorites.
The customer support is excellent. Calls are always answered in a timely manner and the operator always provide the necessary information to solve the problem. The on-line support offers a number of videos and training opportunities.
Overall is a great software
