We spend a fair amount of time discussing different industries in which CMMS software can help lower maintenance costs.

Especially in the cases of universities, where responsibilities include not only maintaining classrooms, but also athletic facilities, dorms, administrative buildings, outdoor spaces and the like.

The role of hospitals is a simple one. Take care of sick people, and give them a place to get better. Over the last 100 years, we’ve gotten pretty good at diagnosing and taking care of people who need medical attention, but who is watching out for the overall health of the hospital itself? What

It’s your job to meet their needs because if you don’t, another retailer will be standing there, happy to help. Part of meeting those needs means keeping
We like to think of airports as small cities. Both rely on a careful balance of people, facilities and parts working together in harmony. When done right, it’s a logistical marvel – a finely tuned machine, built to deliver people safely and efficiently to wherever their lives take them. Your job is to find a

If you’re considering a CMMS solution, our guess is that at some point your boss is going to ask for numbers to prove the worthiness of the investment. Your goal is simple – calculate an ROI. The C-Suite guys need a figure, and you’re going to give it to them. This might sound like an
You’ve heard of the cloud. You know that everyone’s information is up there bouncing around like little data pinballs, but did you know that the cloud can help your very non-cloud-like operation run better AND save you money?
