Maintenance Pro At A Glance

Good: Scalable versions, unlimited number of equipment and asset tracking, in-depth details of maintenance history.
Bad: Integration with CRM, ERP and accounting software is not currently offered.
Bottom Line: Solution that empowers managers to stay on top of issues through a user-friendly interface and a robust set of maintenance functionalities

Product Overview

Maintenance Pro is an incredibly diverse software solution in that it addresses several different areas of management needs.

One important area is Equipment Management. Maintenance Pro simplifies Equipment Management and allows users to track an unlimited number of pieces of equipment. Users can store the description, make, model, serial number, photos, and more for each piece of equipment. Maintenance Pro employs a tree-like hierarchy that allows users to categorize and quickly locate equipment. To further aid in tree navigation, users can assign any of 200+ icons to each piece of equipment and to each category.

Another key aspect of this product is its preventative maintenance capabilities, letting users know when a vehicle or piece of equipment is due to service at all times. Automated and color-coded preventive maintenance alerts will automatically display upon program startup. Equipment due (or overdue) for service will be shaded “red” while equipment soon due for service will be shaded “yellow”. This provides an excellent visual of how a company’s assets stand at any given time. Maintenance Pro provides a wide range of preventive maintenance services that are already defined. However, end users can easily customize the list or create their own maintenance schedules based on the tracking requirements of their equipment. They can also track their preventive maintenance by date, mileage, hours, or kilometers.

In addition, Maintenance Pro enables users to track and monitor trends in repair maintenance, so they can decide whether to keep or retire a piece of equipment. As users schedule unexpected repairs, Maintenance Pro automatically notifies managers when they are due.

Maintenance Pro offers additional benefits, such as decreased asset downtime and reduced operating costs. It can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise, and users can also access the features on the go from their mobile devices. They can see work orders, track tasks, record unexpected breakdowns, complete inspections and more.
