Switching focus from corrective to preventive maintenance keeps your equipment up and running smoothly. Frequent breakdowns become a thing of the past. With fewer breakdowns more time is available to manage your maintenance department.

    Manage Spare Parts Inventory

    Computerized Maintenance Management Software manages your spare parts inventory. Keep an accurate count of inventory on hand as well as what inventory is being used on work orders. Use this information to determine which parts are most commonly used and should be kept in stock. Beat supply chain disruptions by automatically reordering inventory when stock falls below a specified level. Have all of the information about your inventory including cross references and alternative vendors available so that you can get the parts you need when you need them.

    Reduce inventory carrying costs by having the right amount of inventory in stock. Eliminate the need for expensive overnight freight by re-ordering parts before you run out. Knowledge is power and you will have access to all of the data available on all of your spare parts.

    Work Order Requests

    Allow employees outside of the maintenance department to request work orders. Get better information about the job that needs to be done from the person who needs the work completed. Save maintenance department time by allowing others to directly request work. Status alerts update the requester automatically so that there is no need for them to contact you.

    Work Order Reminders

    Never forget a work order with Work Order Reminders. Preventive maintenance and corrective work orders will never slip through the cracks again. CMMS never forgets your important work orders. Visual reminders will notify you if tasks become overdue. Increase equipment reliability by reliably completing all of your work orders.

    Extend Equipment Lifespans

Potential problems with equipment may be caught before they occur, which can prevent catostrophic failure. Well maintained equipment will continue to operate for a much longer period of time, postponing replacement costs.

    Improve Maintenance Team Productivity

    CMMS Software has many tools that improve productivity and allow maintenance technicians to get more work done in less time. Reduced paperwork, Work Order Requests, Email, and mobile access are just a few of the tools that improve productivity. More work orders completed in less time results in substantial cost savings. 

    Energy Efficiency

    Equipment that is in peak condition optimizes its energy consumption. CMMS Software will help you ensure that all of your equipment is in the best possible condition maximizing your energy savings potential.

    Eliminate Duplicate Work

    COGZ CMMS Software provides a centralized platform for all of your maintenance data. Paperwork and duplication of work can be reduced to zero when used properly.

    Data Driven Decisions

    CMMS software collects data as maintenance activities are performed. This data should be analyzed and used to make better maintenance management decisions. Examples include, deciding to sell equipment that is costing too much money to maintain and hiring another maintenance technician due to high maintenance backlog. Both items will cost money, but will produce savings in excess of costs.
