Though the terms CMMS and EAM are often used interchangeably – and many CMMS systems like Maintenance Connection offer EAM-level featured and capabilities, there are some key distinctions between CMMS and EAM system to keep In mind.
Computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS),on one hand, were created primarily to manage assets during the operational part of the asset lifecycle. EAM systems, on the other hand, were created to provide more comprehensive facility management from acquisition to disposal. This wider scope of functionality makes an EAM a more robust tool as it includes functionalities – like labor management and vendor management – that you won’t find in a traditional CMMS.
When it comes to finding the best asset management software for your business, there are a few things to keep in mind, like:
Enterprise management software, or an EAM, is a robust facilities management software that can help you effectively manage your facility and your assets from acquisition to disposal. More robust than a traditional CMMS, an EAM offers a variety of powerful capabilities to help you optimize asset utilization, maximize your uptime, reduce operational costs and ultimately increase your ROI. These include functionalities like:
Asset management software is generally used by organizations and individuals working in asset-heavy industries who want to improve their asset management processes. More specifically, it can be used in a variety of industries, including education, healthcare, manufacturing, oil & gas and real estate. The software is most frequently used by technicians, maintenance professionals, operators, managers and executives.
A dedicated Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) administrator oversees the implementation and maintenance of a CMMS solution. A CMMS is a complicated tool that requires data development and management, metrics management, ongoing compliance, consistent upgrades, development and management of reports, employee training and more. If these tasks are left to existing employees, it can lead to inconsistent data, a loss of system integrity, and a return to reactive maintenance practices. Having a CMMS administrator, on the other hand, helps organizations make the most of a CMMS, increasing employee adoption and making data more transparent.
The cost of an asset management system will vary depending on various factors like the vendor you choose, the add-on features that you need and the number of users that will be using the software. However, keep in mind that your vendor should offer up-front pricing information during initial conversations and you should choose a system that falls in line with your 1, 2 and 5-year budget goals.
