Manager Plus

Pros

I like the view to see all the assets in one screen.
I like the various dimensions that can be selected.
I like the price.

Cons

Could me more user friendly.
I could not figure out how to fix items that were inactive. - Later I found out I had view only rights.

Our maintenance department would be lost without it.

Pros

Makes managing work orders a breeze. It is easy for employees to request work orders through the web portal. Support has been quick to respond and done there best to help with out software issues.

Cons

Updating isn't always straightforward. We have had a couple bugs with the system that come and go at random.

Great idea, poor UI and even worse customer service

ManagerPlus could be very successful if they would pull their heads out of the clouds and listen to what their customers want. But hey, i guess that's the case with the majority of software developers

Pros

Some of the features are really nice and make sense. Makes maintenance management a bit easier. There's a mobile app available, but it does about half as much as you'd expect it to

Cons

Every change i've seen made to this program has made it slower and more difficult to use. They just keep re-applying lipstick to a pig instead of listening to their customers and making the program better. They say they can make customizations to your individual program, but they basically refuse to when it comes down to it. Even if you're willing to spend the small fortune they require for customizing. It has just been a never ending circle of poor customer service and software that half works

Manager Plus for Mission Critical Equipment

Pros

I find it very user friendly. Easy to navigate. Adding information to the asset is easy. I like being able to attach files for the history.

Cons

The only con I experienced was a delay in having the data uploaded.

The program was extremely indepth but was to big for our company's needs

Pros

The program was extremely in depth. The modules were very easy to understand. The organization and potential to expand and scale the product was great.

Cons

The initial data input and setup was extremely time consuming. We took days putting all of our equipment into the program. That wasn't a huge deal. The biggest issue was that some of our employees couldn't figure the basics out.

Solid and evolving software

It gives our fleet crew chance to manage all assets and be proactive with all schedule vehicle maintenance.

Pros

We started using Manger Plus 20 years ago when it was DOS based application. Over the years software has been converted to a user-friendly GUI application, users feedback was incorporated into product's functionality. You can create user defined custom fields which is very helpful. Great search engine. Recently we integrated it with our Active Directory, user can log in to the application with their Windows creds. Quick and responsive US based support is a BIG plus.

Cons

Sometimes reporting provides too much info. Besides that, it is a great product. 20 years in service and counting.

Great Software!

Pros

ManagerPlus is a great software with all the features you would ever need, there is a handy mobile app that can be used on the go and the pricing is very attractive for the large amount of features you get

Cons

The software is overall not the easiest to use and can require some time playing around with it and just using it before you become an expert

Transportation industry application of Manager Plus

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

Manager Plus works but improvement is needed

Used Manager Plus as CMMS system is does the job just fine. Customization does not always translate over to there mobile application used on android or ios. Overall it gets the job done but the user interface on smart devices lacks.

Manager Plus Pro

It is very expensive for the annual Customer Support that I might use once per year; but if you do utilize customer Service they are excellent. It is not a very user friendly program as errors are easy to make, and very difficult to correct.

Pros

Very versatile for various tracking record keeping. The screen set up is very easy to see/read (this is not true with a different new software i am using, so I do appreciate Manager's screen)

Cons

Very easy to make errors, very difficult to correct errors.

It works very well for what i do. I only use it for maintenance scheduling - no inventory or employee tracking. Occasional software glitches, but can always close the window and reopen to resolve the problem. Database backup not very user friendly.

Pros

meets all my basic needs very well

Cons

database backup overly complicated

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.

working out the glitches

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

I researched this software at a previous job and purchased it and implemented the maintenance program. The cost and ease of use was a no brainer to me when I started at the hospital and they didn't have a CMMS was to get Manager plus here as well. Great program and the customer support is wonderful.

Pros

Managerplus Pro - Seems left behind by the company

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.

We've had a good overall experience with this version of Manager Plus Pro software. It's filled an information and records keeping gap that we have had for years before finding this product. Very pleased, and look forward to a continuing partnership with Manager Plus.

works well

Manager Plus works well for my application. I wish there was away to add inventory without using purchase orders. Sometimes it gets locked in print and won't let you return to previous pages. Other than that it is a excellent program for my needs.
