Take command of your asset maintenance and reliability with UpKeep’s CMMS capabilities. More than just a CMMS, the Asset Operations Management platform equips every Maintenance, Reliability, and Operations team with the tools and information needed to run effectively. With UpKeep’s CMMS capabilities, users can improve their maintenance management process, lower costs, ensure worker safety and compliance, and gain data-backed insights. This mobile-first technology is easy to use and helps technicians be more efficient.
Teams looking to optimize maintenance processes and workflows have started utilizing modern CMMS software, which offers a variety of key advantages.
With a CMMS solution, technicians can eliminate the time-consuming, burdensome task of double data entry. They no longer need to record information related to work orders on paper, then spend time entering that data into desktop software once the work order is complete. Instead, they can use their mobile-friendly app to log data onsite in real-time; which boosts their efficiency and productivity. Plus, a CMMS organizes work orders so technicians always have access to the right information in a single, up-to-date place.

As you evaluate your options for CMMS software implementation, make sure the tool you choose offers these essential features
Modern CMMS software helps teams create, prioritize, access, and measure all of their maintenance work orders in a single place. UpKeep's CMMS capabilities allow team leads, supervisors, and technicians to easily attach photos, documents, or videos to each work order, boosting the productivity and accuracy of the work order management process.
Proper facility management requires confident, agile planning for the present and for the future. UpKeep’s CMMS capabilities improve transparency into work order management processes, reduce response times, and streamline maintenance requests in a single place. Plus, users can generate customized data reports and visualizations that enable facilities to monitor their health and assets over time and better understand trends that impact the business.
Inventory management requires a powerful tool that can simplify the entire process. Users have deeper insights into costs and stock supplies—so companies can oversee everything from parts consumption, to purchasing, to pricing for a highly controlled inventory management operation.
Organizations in many industries have started leveraging CMMS software, including:
What is a CMMS?
A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is software that combines all maintenance activities into one place, enabling your company to plan, track, and store data on maintenance operations and other assets.
With powerful CMMS software, users can record and organize data, plan preventive maintenance tasks, automate and manage work orders, and generate reports. Companies can use these tools to improve the reliability of their equipment and maximize their operations costs. Plus, robust CMMS solutions ensure inventory accuracy and help teams remain compliant and safe while on the job.
The Difference Between CMMS and EAM
Though the two are often conflated, it’s important to note that CMMS software and enterprise asset management (EAM) systems serve very different yet important functions. A true CMMS focuses only on centralizing key data to facilitate and automate maintenance during the operational part of an asset’s life cycle. A robust EAM, on the other hand, also provides an inventory management system, multi-site management tools, an accounting system, a purchasing management system, and other comprehensive tools.
A CMMS software’s overall goal is focused on reducing downtime through preventive maintenance, automated maintenance scheduling, and more. And when working in tandem with an EAM system—which has the capability to track, manage, and analyze asset performance and costs during an asset’s life cycle—you have two powerful tools to help you make data-driven decisions and increase productivity and ROI.
Traditional CMMS, EAM, and APM solutions are siloed, creating issues for maintenance, operations, and reliability teams that all need access to integrated data and insights. That’s why we developed the UpKeep Asset Operations Management platform.
