Preventive Maintenance Software Features

Preventive Maintenance Scheduling
Maintenance Connection CMMS software provides a variety of features – including calendars, automated reports, mobile capabilities, automated triggers, workflows and robust reporting – that can help you efficiently execute tasks and develop a preventive maintenance plan. This can ultimately help your organization maintain process consistency, clean your data and work more efficiently.
"The system is being used at all levels of the organization, from the mechanics that actually do the PMs to the supervision that verifies that the work's been done correctly to the planners that plan the downtime based on the needs of the equipment."
HARRY | L’Oréal
MRO Inventory Management

Poorly managed MRO inventory can negatively impact maintenance tasks, causing major delays and increased costs as technicians are forced to search for parts, order missing parts and deal with unused inventory. Maintenance Connection maintenance management software can streamline MRO inventory management and ultimately increase uptime by:

  • Tracking spare parts
  • Connecting parts to supplier and vendor information
  • Notifying you when stock is low
  • Helping you quickly find the parts you need
"With the reduction in staff and the reduction in time and equipment used, that's where we really focused in on redefining our PM program with altering cycles and altering PM schedules...That's saved us a lot of man hours and lets us move those man hours to another area that's needed."
GREG | The New York Times
Planned Maintenance Work Order Management

One of the biggest keys to effective predictive maintenance is complete, proactive work order generation - and paper and spreadsheets just don’t cut it. Accruent’s preventive maintenance CMMS allows you to proactively create, view, track, prioritize and distribute complete work orders, which can ultimately improve communication, reduce corrective maintenance and ensure that you have an appropriate preventive maintenance schedule.

"I recommend this program to any company that needs a flexible, versatile and highly reliable CMMS to schedule PMs, allow requesters to enter their work request and to track the complete maintenance history."
KEVIN | Pentair Water
Planned Maintenance Inspection Schedules

Inspections and audits are an important part of any preventive maintenance program. With Accruent’s Maintenance Connection software, you can make sure that you never miss an inspection. That way, you can catch failures early, eliminate confusion and continuously pass compliance audits.

“The reporting in Maintenance Connection gives us better visibility into inventory tracking and supplier costs, and saved us $105,000 last year through centralized vendor comparisons. By reducing quantities on hand by 10% across the board, we’ve saved tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary parts spending.”
DION ARCHULETA | Trinchero Family Estates
Mobile-Friendly Preventive Maintenance App

Using Accruent’s CMMS mobile app, asset operators and technicians can update work orders, access important asset information, log meter readings and easily execute and update preventive maintenance tasks.

“Anything that [the state and federal regulators] can ask, we need to make sure that it’s documented. For example, smoke detector testing has to be done annually, and having that preventive maintenance in Maintenance Connection has helped us keep track and make sure it’s getting done on time.”
Josh Hazelton | Maine Medical Center
Comprehensive, Historical Asset Information

Getting a complete view of an asset’s history allows you to understand previous maintenance, issues and concerns. This can ultimately inform your present and future maintenance plans, helping you quickly resolve breakdowns and address concerns before they arise.

"Safety is a top priority for us. Maintenance Connection allows us to oversee all over our assets and coordinate any maintenance—scheduled or unscheduled. And that helps keep of Alaska Airlines safe.”
ALLAN AMADOR | Alaska Airlines
Real-Time Reporting and Dashboards

Comprehensive dashboards and reporting give your team the data and insights you need to proactively identify and resolve inefficiencies so you can decrease costs and unplanned downtime.

"We use preventive maintenance every day, starting by reviewing manuals of when the manufacturer recommends, building a procedure task to tie in with that PM, and then being able to look at the data at a glance from the database and being able to see what has transpired with the asset.”
DEBBIE HONGELL | Bay Area Hospital
