Apex, NC (PRWEB) January 10, 2006
SMGlobal Inc. (http://www.smglobal.com) announces the release of version 4.5 of its FastMaint CMMS software for maintenance management. FastMaint is a computerized maintenance management solution (CMMS) for manufacturing plants, industrial/ commercial facilities and vehicle fleets. It is one of the few maintenance software packages to pass Microsoft’s certification tests.
Maintenance typically consumes a significant portion of most budgets. Equipment failures can impose larger costs in terms of lost revenue, quality issues & customer dissatisfaction. Unfortunately most maintenance departments lack the time & resources to put together a comprehensive preventive maintenance plan that can control & reduce unplanned maintenance. Breaking the vicious cycle to reduce breakdowns & unplanned maintenance while increasing planned & preventive maintenance can be very hard. FastMaint helps organizations take the “baby steps” needed to get started.
"We are very pleased with FastMaint. I am learning more about its versatility each day. I have been able to see a downward trend in equipment break downs and spare parts usage" says David Cook, Maintenance Planner.
FastMaint is designed to be "fast" and easy to install and use so that users can become productive soon. Both planned and preventive maintenance tasks can be scheduled, managed and tracked. An integrated inventory system allows one to track inventory use and when to reorder parts. Maintenance managers can plan ahead and budget work for the week, month, quarter, year or any defined period. One can easily create work orders and collect feedback on jobs done. The multi-user Professional edition provides a way for non-maintenance personnel to submit maintenance requests. Users rights to view or change information can be restricted to protect maintenance data. Many third party tools such as report writers, data extraction utilities, etc. can also be integrated with the FastMaint database. FastMaint can work with Microsoft’s Access or SQL Server database. The new release brings in work order improvements for unplanned work, improved reporting and several other enhancements.
Prices start at US$995 for the single user version. For more information and a free 30-day trial of FastMaint please visit http://www.smglobal.com.
