Because without it, you're only ever reacting to problems, never getting out ahead of them. Without a structured PM program, you're stuck relying on run-to-failure and on-demand work orders. Scheduling resources and controlling inventory are challenging when you can never plan beyond the next surprise breakdown. As critical facility and production equipment gets overlooked, downtime and repair costs rise.
Preventive maintenance software, a core module of EAM software, helps you develop, schedule, and track a PM program that cuts downtime and boosts asset and equipment life cycles. Data-packed preventive maintenance work orders include everything technicians needs to close out efficiently, including customizable step-by-step instructions, associated parts and materials, digital copies of O&M manuals, images, and schematics.
Overtime Labor Costs
If your organization currently deals with maintenance issues with reactive or on-demand maintenance, chances are you are at risk of high maintenance costs and increased downtime. It’s time to switch to a more reliable maintenance strategy.
Hippo's preventive maintenance (PM) software enables organizations to generate and track work orders, set up PM schedules, and keep a track of them, making it easy to prevent equipment downtime and increase asset lifespan.
"In a survey of over 500 facilities and maintenance professionals, 94% ranked preventive maintenance as most important."
Preventive maintenance software is one of the most important features that any CMMS software can offer an organization. Without a scheduled preventive maintenance program, routine equipment checks go overlooked for critical facility and production equipment. This results in downtime, high repair costs, unexpected labor demands, unhappy customers, emergencies, and accidents. Can your organization afford these costs? Why put your company at risk when you don’t have to?
