Buyers guide


Last Updated: July 15, 2019

Equipment management software tracks an organization’s mechanical equipment, ensuring that upkeep and repairs are done on schedule and on budget.

Maintenance professionals constantly strive to reduce costs while increasing machine availability. Software helps organizations drive toward this goal by optimizing the preventive maintenance and work order process, as well as offering a way to break down historical data to uncover operational trends.

But with hundreds of products on the market, it can be a tall order to identify which ones meet your company’s needs. With that in mind, we’ve written this buyer’s guide to support managers in assessing their options as they navigate the landscape.

Here are the topics we'll cover:

What Is Equipment Maintenance Software

Preventive maintenance is crucial to the success of any organization. Offline equipment produces nothing, slows project completion and can even result in a complete operational shutdown. Even worse, equipment malfunctions can be dangerous, leading to time-wasting (at best) or harmful (at worst) accidents.

Equipment tracking software is designed to optimize asset performance, ensuring that preventive tasks happens on schedule and that work orders are handled with maximum efficiency. Critical functions include:

  • Asset tracking—i.e., identifying when the equipment was purchased, its expected lifetime, warranty information, costs, depreciation and more
  • Equipment trackingmaintaining detailed records, including service history, contracts, part and model numbers etc.
  • Labor resource managementidentifying labor resources needed/used to perform certain tasks, including qualifications, time and labor rates
  • Managing inventorysimplifying ordering and ensuring that necessary parts are always in stock
  • Managing work ordersensuring that unscheduled maintenance occurs quickly and easily

More advanced maintenance management products like Bigfoot CMMS, Sprocket CMMS, eMaint X3 and Maintenance Connection may have a predictive maintenance feature, as well. This application predicts, based on past errors and physical symptoms (e.g., noise, vibration, temperature, corrosion, pressure) that a malfunction may be about to occur and alerts the user to the potential problem. This feature actually saved one company a million dollars in one day. Though most results aren’t quite this dramatic, almost all users can attest that properly implemented equipment and machine maintenance software will improve asset performance, reduce costs and extend the lifetime of equipment.

Equipment maintenance tracking software are commonly used for fleets of vehicles (e.g., in the transportation, agriculture, landscaping and field service industries), as well as in manufacturing sites with heavy factory equipment.
