If you’ve decided to look for a CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) system for your business, there are a lot of packages out there. There are dozens--if not hundreds--of software purveyors that offer features for everything under the sun. So, needless to say, there are a lot of options. But if your business has specific prerequisites, you may want to look into custom maintenance software to get exactly what you need.

Most maintenance software packages come with standard modules that handle maintenance scheduling, work orders, parts and inventory, equipment and machinery management, purchasing and receiving, contacts and vendors tracking, and some kind of day planner. This can be a good fit for many companies, but what if you need more? Look for a software company that offers add-on features. You might need additional software for project planning, safety management, or to create procedures or a training database.

Of course, there’s the other end of the spectrum as well. If you’re a small company, there’s no need to pay for modules you won’t ever need. Some software companies will offer a stripped-down version of their systems. It should still have all the capabilities you need, but perhaps you don’t have a use for the parts and inventory feature.

Let Your Software Grow with Your Company

It’s wonderful to have great expectations for your company. But you don’t need to waste money on software you don’t yet need. On the other hand, don’t settle for less if you need extra oomph. Look for a supplier that can offer custom maintenance software to fulfill your individual requirements.
