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."
