7 Vital Questions for Purchasing CMMS Maintenance Software

While not as expensive as a house or car, CMMS maintenance software is still an important purchase with many variables to consider. It’s an investment, and you want to be sure you’re getting the right kind to suit your needs.

Steve Brous writes a blog titled Maintenance Maven, and he wrote about the seven decisions you should make before you look at CMMS software.

  1. Why? You should consider your needs and compare that to what the software offers, determining why you should select that particular product.
  2. When? Not only when do you need to implement the CMMS, but how long will it take for everyone to learn the platform.
  3. Who? Consider who will use the software: how many people and how often.
  4. Deployment? Find out where the software will need to be deployed and how.
  5. Budget? Consider what budget you have to work with, then discover how each CMMS software product charges and for how much.
  6. Purchase or rent? Find out whether you're licensing it, if it has an expiration, and what you need to do beyond the initial expenditure.
  7. Return on investment? Determine how the software can help you get a return on investing in the CMMS platform.
