CMMS products have come a long way since the early days, and with the introduction of personal computers, the Internet and mobile technology, there seems to be no limit to what can be done with a modern CMMS. But surprisingly, there are organizations that continue to use their system in the same manner as it was used thirty years ago—even if that system has hundreds of features.

Maintenance and engineering professionals are mobile by nature, and have relied on paper, phone calls, emails, and text messages to get their job done. Although these different methods of communication have been somewhat effective, there is still quite a bit of improvement that can be made by using modern web based Computerized Maintenance Management Systems, or CMMS products.
The true effectiveness of a CMMS system depends largely on how completely it has been embraced by the members of an organization. Everyone needs to be involved when it comes to the smooth running of a facility, and everyone should receive some level of training if their jobs are scheduled or managed by the CMMS.
In order to prevent asset degradation, you must review the performance of your team as well as the performance of your equipment and make appropriate adjustments to keep everything on track. Having a built in measurement tool within your CMMS is the best way to monitor work completion and measure the quality/consistency of work performance.
