With the capabilities of CMMS systems expanding over the last few years, companies need to look carefully at their actual needs through judicious requirements analysis.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
SelectHub, a technology selection management (TSM) software company, released its mid-year rankings update for computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS)—featuring the top CMMS solutions rated on 20 key functional business requirements.
IFS Enterprise Asset Management, Infor EAM Enterprise, and Assetworks top SelectHub’s CMMS Leaderboard which includes software titans IBM, SAP and Oracle and market leaders such as Bigfoot and eMaint.
CMMS software—used to track an organization’s maintenance activities—helps to schedule and plan work, locate tools parts and supplies, control inventory and manage assets. SelectHub ranked systems on both ease of use and depth of functionality in key areas such as lifecycle tracking of physical assets, maintenance management (including preventive maintenance), and the ability to track and report on the cost and effectiveness of maintenance projects.
SelectHub calculates CMMS rankings across multiple core functional categories, using information compiled from software selection projects and RFPs managed through their technology selection management platform. SelectHub then validates scores with third party CMMS / EAM industry and research firms to assure the accuracy of the final Leaderboard ratings.
The importance of finding the right CMMS / EAM solution cannot be overemphasized. “Enterprise Asset Management is the cornerstone for increasing uptime, prolonging asset life and improving reliability while reducing overall cost of maintenance operations,” said Mike Stone, CMRP, Product Manager at Infor EAM. SelectHub helps organizations evaluating CMMS / EAM make a better choice.
“With the capabilities of CMMS systems expanding over the last few years, companies need to look carefully at their actual needs through judicious requirements analysis.” Ram Karan, SelectHub’s Head of Customer Success, said. “Some of those products that ranked in our top ten list are from big-name vendors with a lot of clout in the market, but smaller or less heavily adopted products shouldn’t be left out. It’s all about what companies want in a maintenance software suite, and the specific features and functionality that will help preserve their assets.”
