Maxpanda At A Glance

Good: Tech support built right into the dashboard, unlimited number of users access, affordable pricing plans with robust CMMS features.
Bad: Inability to integrate with other systems but Maxpanda plans to offer this capability in the 3rd quarter of 2016.
Bottom Line: One of the few CMMS solutions that gives unlimited number of users access even with its basic pricing plan.

Product Overview

Maxpanda is dedicated CMMS software accessible via the Web. Unlike most vendors, Maxpanda offers a pay-as-you-go subscription option, where customers can pay by credit card monthly and cancel at any time. There are no contracts or set-up fees. There are also no fees for data backup, product upgrades or software maintenance.

As Maxpanda is SaaS, companies benefit from not having to purchase server hardware or additional software, are less reliance on their IT department, and have a faster implementation process through cloud deployment. The solution also is available for companies with multiple locations.

Maxpanda offers five pricing plans. They are:

  • Starter ($26 a month) – This plan allows users to create up to 100 work orders a month. It also allows an unlimited number of users, users can track an unlimited number of buildings, locations, parts, and other assets, multiple language support, 5GB data storage, a guest portal, custom email notification with company logo, and daily backup of data.
  • Enhanced ($63 a month) – This plan has all of the features of the Starter plan, however, it allows up to 150 new work orders a month, has a data storage of 10GB, and features free mobile access available via Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play. It also has a corporate level management functionality that lets a company admin oversee a maximum of 15 sites or departments.
  • Standard ($109 a month) – The Standard plan has a maximum of 350 new work orders a month, a 25GB data storage, and the company admin can oversee up to 25 sites or departments.
  • Pro ($180 a month) – The Pro plan allows up to 500 new work orders a month, a 50GB data storage, the company admin can oversee up to 50 sites or departments.
  • Enterprise ($274 a month) – This plan has all of the features of the four previous plans, plus  an unlimited amount of new work orders monthly, 100GB data storage, and the company admin can oversee up to 100 sites or departments.

Regardless of what plans they pick, companies will get a comprehensive array of CMMS features.

Implementation/Integration

Customers start with a 15-day free trial period, after which their subscription begins (their monthly fee is automatically paid via credit card). However, Maxpanda offers a four-step process for companies that want a dedicated implementation plan.

  • Step 1 – Determining the company’s needs for a CMMS package (i.e. importing existing data, how many users will access solution, etc)
  • Step 2 – Reflecting on how the CMMS will work with the company’s current processes and procedures
  • Step 3 – Building a team of employees that will primarily be using the solution
  • Step 4 – Define goals and objectives for implementation

Maxpanda also offers free data import sevice, where they import the data from an existing CMMS and users won’t have to worry about missing or duplicate data. It also offers training for customers prior to implementation, as well as ongoing training.

Customer Service & Support

Customers will get a dedicated technical support portal that is built in the CMMS dashboard. Through this portal, users can submit support tickets. Customers also can call or email their dedicated Maxpanda Product Manager during business hours.

Shortcomings

Maxpanda currently does not integrate with any other systems, however, this will change in the 3rd quarter of 2016 when it’ll be able to integrate with Quickbooks, Wufoo forms, Salesforce and Zapier.

About

Maxpanda places a strong emphasis on customer satisfaction – not just from its own customers, but the customers’ internal and external clients. Its CMMS solution is entirely Web-based deployed as a SaaS. Maxpanda is one of the few vendors that offers a pay-as-you-go subscription service (no contracts, no implementation charges, or hidden fees) that the customer can cancel for any reason at any time.

Maxpanda is also non-profit friendly. Non-profits are eligible for up to 20% discounts on specific plans. A portion of the subscription fees goes to the World Wildlife Fund, an organization dedicated to conserving nature.
