Hippo CMMS equipment maintenance software stores your asset and equipment information including ID tags (make, model, and serial numbers), documents, and photos. Hippo's intuitive dashboards enables users to view assets and find maintenance issues by location, while powerful reporting tools deliver insights into repair history, equipment downtime, parts used, and costs.
Software Advice defines equipment tracking software as "designed to optimize asset performance, ensuring that preventive tasks happens on schedule and that work orders are handled with maximum efficiency."
Hippo CMMS has designed easy-to-use, effective equipment management software that helps companies store, manage, maintain, and report on their assets and equipment. Companies without automated maintenance management software generally record maintenance data manually with a pencil and paper. Companies utilizing a CMMS have traded in the pencil and paper for sophisticated and robust facilities management software systems. Current CMMS software is much more than a virtual filing cabinet because they can analyze the stored data by tracking work orders, quickly generating accurate reports, and instantly determining which assets require preventive maintenance scheduling software. These improvements have led to extended equipment lifespans, improved organization, better time management and labor utilization and ultimately, reduced costs and increased profits.
Apart from its comprehensive work order management module, Hippo CMMS's primary function is to act as a maintenance database able to house all asset and equipment information in one centralized cloud-based location. This feature makes it possible for maintenance and facility managers to have instant access to asset / equipment locations, images, serial numbers, manuals, documents, manufacturer and supplier contact information, installation and warranty expiration dates, repair history, and upcoming maintenance tasks. Hippo replaces all the old, frustrating methods with one cloud-based digital platform. With this system, you can associate all asset and equipment information to a single unit or model type. This allows system users to quickly refer to relevant information.
You can attach asset information such as model image, ID tag (i.e., make, model and serial number), and documents to a work order for a specific unit. This is especially helpful for technicians because they can pull up all relevant asset information directly from the work order. All workers can stay informed on the unit while also saving time by eliminating the need to physically search for the same reference materials.
"We love the Advanced Dashboard option. It provides your maintenance team with an interactive screen of your plant's layouts. It's an effective visual tool that is cool to use and simplifies navigating through the system and monitoring the status of the equipment."
Larry Septick | Process Control Engineer at Acme Manufacturing Company
“Hippo is not cluttered up with all the little things that 90% of maintenance managers never use that just get in the way. It is very user friendly, has exceptional support, and was easy to migrate to. Work orders are easy to use and completion rate are up.”
Chris F. | Maintenance Manager, Lily Of The Desert via review on Capterra
“With hippo, you'll be able to keep your maintenance program running smoothly and track your performance with ease. Several metrics are available to measure performance. The ability to add associations between parts and machines, the ability to create several instances”

Our Advanced Dashboard allows users to interact with their asset and equipment information directly from their interactive floor plans and drawings. Using visual asset mapping, system users can locate critical pieces of equipment in every section and floor of their facility. By clicking on the plotted asset, users can access the equipment detail screen that outlines the equipment’s entire asset record, from images to ID tags and documents to spare parts usage and inventory levels.
Hippo’s equipment management software helps companies monitor equipment performance and then make informed decisions on replacement or continued maintenance for all assets. Users can easily track and reduce equipment downtime using the intuitive downtime module. By tracking downtime for each unit and across the entire facility (including those with multiple sites), facility managers can closely monitor their equipment’s health and longevity. It also provides one part of the entire equipment lifecycle analysis. Maintenance history reports relay crucial asset and equipment information in real-time and can be emailed to members of your team at any frequency or as needed. System generated reports display a wide range of information, including the number of demand and scheduled work orders created for each unit as well as the total repair cost on all serviced equipment over a specified time period. With real-time insight into assets and equipment management, Hippo's equipment management software provides facility managers the tools they need to make quick and well informed decisions.
