CMMS ROI Calculator: Justifying the Cost

By estimating the reduction in cost for issues that a CMMS works to improve, you can determine how much your organisation can save per year. To calculate the total for your CMMS savings, we start by breaking up the cost benefits of CMMS into four major categories: labour/productivity, parts/inventory, downtime and asset health. Looking at these separately and considering the potential reductions, you can calculate your total annual savings from implementing CMMS.

The Impact of Increasing Adoption of SaaS Solutions

Computerised Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) and Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions have evolved. Now offered using the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model of software deployment, CMMS/EAM solutions are now available for "rent." This model delivers numerous benefits over the traditional model. It also allows your team work more efficiently.

Micro-breweries and Micro-distilleries in the U.S.

Vintners and industrial-scale brewers (those that produce over 30,000 gallons of beer per day) have been enjoying a virtual monopoly in the legal production and sale of alcohol for nearly one hundred years. But it wasn't always this way. In this paper, we'll briefly discuss the roots of brewing beer in small batches (often referred to as family brewing, or more recently micro-brewing), review the current landscape, and conclude by looking at the opportunities and challenges for micro-brewers and micro-distillers today.

Ireland Rapidly Emerging as EU's Silicon Valley

Ireland has become a tech Mecca, with Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, PayPal, Amazon and Twitter setting up their EU offices in the city. The reasons for the influx of companies into the country range from operational expansion to substantial financial advantages - but at the heart of it, they are strategic. Simply put, companies are moving to Ireland because it provides fantastic opportunities to create and expand business frontiers. Unlike the stereotypical outsourcer of a decade ago, foreign companies are choosing to establish a presence in Ireland because it allows them to better serve their EU-based partners. eMaint is establishing its Dublin offices for this exact reason.

CMMS and the Wind Industry

Wind energy has grown exponentially over the past decade, increasing by 29.7% (on average) per year, in line with the 2008 projection by the U.S. Department of Energy that the U.S. could derive 20% of its energy from wind power by 2030. In the following white paper, we discuss current challenges in the wind industry, the solutions a robust maintenance management program or CMMS software solution can provide, and future developments in the sphere, as the wind industry continues to move towards a larger share of the total energy marketplace.

Demand and Supply: (Unfilled) Manufacturing Jobs and Returning Veterans

In the 2011 Skills Gap study conducted by Deloitte Consulting LLP and the Manufacturing Institute of over 1,100 manufacturing executives, 83% reported a moderate to severe shortage of skilled production workers and expect this shortage to worsen over the next three to five years. The survey found that 5% of current jobs at those manufacturers who responded to the survey were unfilled due to insufficient qualified applicants. That translates to roughly 600,000 jobs that are going unfilled, despite the 12.5 million Americans out of work, as of July 2012.

Putting the SaaS into CMMS/EAM Software

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a model of software deployment, where the application is provided as a service to customers across the internet. You can think of the SaaS as "renting" the software to customers who access it remotely, most commonly over the Internet. The SaaS provider hosts the application, which it owns, on secure servers that it owns, operates, and maintains.
