PMXpert CMMS Software's prime objective is to reduce day-to-day operating costs and extend equipment longevity by providing a sophisticated user-friendly environment for companies to effectively manage equipment and maintenance information.
The program has been designed to achieve its objective with a minimum of effort and time required by the manager and data entry personnel. PMXpert can be operated by first-time computer users via the simple menu-driven screens supported by extensive Help screens.
PMXpert has the flexibility to keep track of all the different types of equipment you operate.
PMXpert reduces the time required to do the tedious repetitive activities involved in tracking the type of activities and costs that are attributed to a particular piece of equipment. PMXpert also produces various reports that provide critical management information, which is virtually impossible to acquire in a manual record keeping environment. For example, PMXpert provides the operator with reports detailing parts and fluid usage and costs, which can help identify problems before they occur. This feature serves to increase equipment efficiency and assists in identifying the potential for catastrophic component failures.
The program ensures that preventive maintenance and inspection activities are not accidentally missed or forgotten. Thus, aggressive performance tracking added to the early detection of problems that can lead to major component failure, as well as the strict adherence to preventive maintenance programs, will result in significant cost savings to the user.
Users of PMXpert have typically enjoyed savings of 5% or more on overall maintenance costs. These savings are achieved through increased management control and general productivity increases, as well as through the following unique features of the program:
Another important cost saving feature of the program is its ability to ensure against over-maintenance of vehicles.
Using the PMXpert program will reduce your equipment down time by as much as 10% since the program ensures that preventive maintenance activities, your greatest insurance against breakdown, are scheduled at the proper intervals.
Despite appearances to the contrary, unexpected catastrophic equipment failure does not happen suddenly. It is often the result of neglect. In virtually all instances, the introduction of preventive maintenance scheduling reduces catastrophic equipment failures by as much as 10% per year.
Employing the preventive maintenance features of the PMXpert CMMS program leads, quite simply, to a higher quality piece of equipment, that's worth money on the resale market. The ability to produce detailed maintenance histories at the point of resale or trade-in-histories that allow you to document the claim means the resale/lease turn-in value of your used equipment will increase by as much as 6% to 10%.
Labor activities and mechanics' performances can be tracked through the PMXpert system. Using the power of the system, you can quickly identify variances between book or shop labor rates and actual labor activities. Tracking mechanics' activities can assist in producing payroll information, as well as providing the basis for determining the optimal mechanic staff size. Beyond accountability, the PMXpert Preventive Maintenance and Inspection Service Schedule also produces a listing of all the required labor inputs for each job, thus giving you the capacity to ensure proper and efficient labor scheduling.
Two of the features that set PMXpert above other preventive maintenance and CMMS programs are its user-friendliness and its capacity to accommodate any method of calibrating vehicle/equipment usage. The three major usage types are distance, time, and frequency. The flexibility of the package is such that your company's PMXpert installation can be set up with your own unique unit categories, unit (equipment) codes, preventive maintenance and inspection service types and frequencies.
PMXpert produces a full spectrum of standard reports that include equipment lists, work orders, service schedules, unit costing and labor costing. PMXpert's unique filtering system allows the user tremendous flexibility for customizing the information required in the reports.
"PMXpert has added greatly to our maintenance program, we do not have to guess when we need to do oil changes or replace parts, work orders popup with a list of parts needed and when it needs to be performed. With the inventory control we can cut down on our downtime by getting the parts we need, from appointed locations. This saves a lot of time looking for parts."
