Cheap CMMS system - in which CMMS is worth investing in?
 
Many companies that decide to implement a system supporting the maintenance department are considering the answer to this question. The key element in the initial phase of purchasing the system is the analysis of solutions available on the market. It is worth considering what effects we want to achieve, what benefits we expect and after what time we will return the money invested.
The CMMS systems offered on the market differ in the scope of available functionalities, licensing methods, and end-user access to the system.
 

It is important to check whether the standard version of the system provides a complete set of functionalities necessary for the maintenance manager. It may turn out that some systems are built on the basis of separate modules (separately priced) and in order to use the full range of necessary functionalities, we have to put in additional funds that we did not take into account when planning the purchase of the system.

For a successful CMMS implementation plan, it is important that employees use it willingly and widely. It must be a simple to use, user-friendly system.

The less complicated the system, the sooner employees will become more proficient in working with it and the faster we will achieve the expected results of purchasing such software.

Therefore, let's pay attention to the readability of forms, the intuitiveness of the menu, adjusting the menu to user groups (each employee sees only as much as he needs), and the availability of the system on mobile devices (tablet, smartphone).

System supplier must be verified. It is worth checking whether the company selling / implementing the CMMS system has proven experience in the implementation of maintenance projects and how many entrepreneurs use their services.

Other important aspects that should interest us when buying a CMMS system are: support after system implementation, user training and integration with other systems in the company. After implementing the software, its users need hints, support or changes to a certain element of the system. Such capabilities should be provided by the system supplier. User training should be thorough and enable the best possible understanding of the functionality for future users. The CMMS system should be designed so that it can be integrated with other systems in the enterprise.

Considering the above, it should be clearly stated that the project of purchasing and implementing a CMMS system cannot be limited to checking its price and choosing the "cheap" one.
 

Guided solely by the price and ignoring the in-depth analysis of solutions offered by various suppliers, it may turn out that a cheap CMMS does not guarantee the achievement of the assumed goals and expected business benefits. As a result, in a short time we will be forced to search for a solution that will meet our expectations.

After an in-depth analysis of the issues discussed above, you can choose the final selection from a pre-selected group of suppliers.

At this stage, we negotiate commercial terms for the solution we expect. Here, too, the phrase cheap CMMS takes on a specific meaning ("I will pay such a price for such a set of functionalities that will provide me with such an increase in the efficiency of the UR department and will bring such business benefits for the entire company").
