Yes, usBIM.maint has all the features of a Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS), but also of an Integrated Workplace Management Software (IWMS).
There are, in fact, different types of software for building maintenance, each with specific features and advantages.
The most common are:
- Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)
A system designed to exclusively handle maintenance requests for systems and equipment. This system can be used by Facility Managers, technicians, and staff of any organization to manage scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, monitor plant and equipment status, manage cost information, and track work orders.
- Integrated Workplace Management Software (IWMS)
An integrated system that helps companies optimize the use of resources in the workplace. It can be considered as a combination of a CMMS software, focused on maintenance, and a CAFM system, based on space management.
An IWMS platform makes it easy to manage work orders and make the most of available space. The IWMS allows, in fact, to monitor the occupancy and use of spaces on planimetric views in real time, highlighting the parts of the office that are not exploited to their full potential.
- Computer Aided Facility Management (CAFM)
A software platform that simplifies facilities management and maintenance processes. Unlike CMMS, which focus on plant and capital maintenance, CAFMs help users optimize the management of space and resources in a building and plan, execute, and monitor all asset maintenance activities. CAFMs are therefore predominantly administrative tools and their main objective is to track data on people and equipment.
- Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)
They are systems designed to track, monitor, and manage a variety of business resources, including information about costs, priorities, competencies, and so on. Unlike CMMS software, which is typically used to manage large mechanical equipment, EAM platforms are useful to track office equipment (such as furniture, computers, etc.) and to ensure efficient management of human resources, procurement and inventories.
