Work order software is a feature of CMMS Software (Computerized Maintenance Management System) which simplifies the work order process, by helping create, assign and tracking maintenance work order across organisation, creating a traceable history lowering costs and improving efficiencies and service. Work order Software helps to effectively track and manage all the work orders. It enables users to send, receive and update work orders instantly and streamline daily maintenance activities.
It is important to fully optimize an organization's work order management. Keeping up with scheduled and on unplanned maintenance and repairs can be overwhelming for organizations using paper or spreadsheets. Using these methods leads to slower response time, equipment downtime, uncompleted tasks, inefficient labor usage and more.
With the help of specialized user permission settings, automated alert notifications and reminders, and centralized work order tracking, an organization can become more transparent and accountable to project timelines and maintenance department goals.
According to Software Advice, "A work order is simply an order, either delivered to a company from customers and clients or created internally, to perform some type of action. These orders can be entered directly into the system itself, or be submitted through client-facing forms on a website or mobile device. In the maintenance management sense, these generally refer to orders to perform maintenance or repairs on assets, vehicles, tools, equipment or facilities."
Hippo’s simple and flexible web-based work order software provide users of all technical skill levels the ability to easily track, modify, and manage their maintenance workflow. The integrated camera feature also makes it possible for technicians to upload and attach images to their work orders. The mobile device and camera features give portability to all aspects of work order management. Work orders can be submitted using the standard form on our simple request portal conveniently located on your desktop. As with all Hippo software, work orders can be generated, reviewed and received using mobile devices. This eliminates the need to return to an office desktop to complete what is often time sensitive work while on location.
"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."
