What is CMMS Software?


Back to FAQs

CMMS software (Computerized Maintenance Management System software) is used by maintenance professionals to maintain detailed records on all of the equipment and other assets in their purview.

CMMS software is known by many other names, such as equipment management software, work order software, preventative maintenance software, maintenance management software and facilities management software. These terms are basically synonymous, though the feature sets of these software solutions can vary.

FaciliWorks CMMS software tracks all elements of maintenance, from preventative maintenance schedules, service requests, unscheduled work orders and predictive maintenance KPIs to spare parts inventory, tools, personnel, procedures, checklists and suppliers. FaciliWorks can even include calibration management for the sake of streamlining operations and having to validate only one piece of software instead of two, for those companies that must comply with various industry standards.

Using CMMS software ensures that no asset will be forgotten, maximizing asset uptime and asset life, minimizing costs and maximizing productivity.
