Hippo CMMS At A Glance

Bad: Predictive maintenance functionality is not available.
Bottom Line: Web-based CMMS with a specialty in mobile access.

Product Overview

Hippo CMMS products cover both daily workflow operations and long-term service operations. These products also vary by industry, focusing on the specific needs of each company’s infrastructure.

The solution’s mobile app gives real time updates on work orders so that you can access and add details to them from anywhere.

Hippo CMMS has recently launched Version 6 of the solution. Some of the newer features and upgrades includes:

  • Upgraded mobile app that includes the ability to upload documents and images, viewing floor plans, and scanning and reading bar codes
  • Redesigned user interface for simpler use
  • Equipment details screen for access to documents and data
  • Enhanced interactive floor plans and maps
  • Bar code generator


Hippo’s modules include:

Advanced Dashboard:  Hippo has a unique dashboard for managing workflows according to your facility’s floor plan. The dashboard comes with CAD mapping for diagramming your facility’s layout around each asset. Work orders are easy to view and track according to their location along with all the valuable information needed on each asset.

Preventative Maintenance Management: Schedule regular maintenance before you need any down-time for repairs, and ensure your equipment is maintained to last. This module includes a PM system for linking with work orders and pulling information on each asset.

Work Order Management: Defines work order tasks through an easy-to-use portal, sending the task off to your maintenance team to complete. Your maintenance team could be internal, or contracted. Work orders can even be submitted, assigned, updated, and completed all from a mobile device as well.

Inventory Management: Accurately track inventory parts for equipment maintenance with automated settings letting staff know when and how to order new parts through relevant supplier information.

Vendor/ Resource Management: The staff in charge of maintenance, whether internal, outsourced, or contracted, are notified by email for each work order. They can also access the solution as a user for asset and workflow details. You may then create detailed reports on your maintenance workforce for performance reviews and hiring decisions.

Asset Management: Accurately track assets entered into the system for analyzing an asset’s history such as repairs, down time, PM record, and maintenance costs.

Fleet Management: Track shipping assets and vehicle costs with detailed information such as license plates, vehicle values, lease expiration dates, work order repairs, mileage, drivers, and more.

Mobile Application: The solution’s mobile app has an intuitive display for accessing and updating a variety of tasks on the go.

Powerful Reporting Tools: Administrators can create reports under three main categories: current work orders, maintenance history, and inventory. Sending out reports can be scheduled and automated through email.  Compiling and breaking down reports is simplified through set categories under each main category.
