Proprietary Sensors

The maintenance management market is poised for significant growth in the coming years, particularly in the realm of sensor integration for predictive and preventive maintenance triggers. Many CMMS platforms currently rely on third-party sensors, each with its own distinct protocols. Consequently, integrating these sensors with a CMMS often necessitates custom coding, which can be both expensive and challenging to scale.

eMaint has taken a clever approach to this challenge by offering its own proprietary sensors. This decision allows the company to better customize and seamlessly integrate its sensors with the eMaint CMMS platform. By developing sensors in-house, eMaint can ensure they are designed to work harmoniously with their system, providing a more streamlined experience for users.

Moreover, utilizing proprietary sensors enables eMaint to scale more effectively, eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming custom integrations. This innovative approach sets eMaint apart from competitors and positions the company at the forefront of sensor integration advancements in the maintenance management industry.

Interactive Plans

eMaint’s Interactive Plans enable users to map assets on floor plans, visually representing asset locations. With Interactive Plans, you can visualize your maintenance data on floor plans, schematics, or site maps, accessing graphical visualization of your assets, work orders, and more.

This feature benefits facility and property managers, who can easily locate equipment within their facility, and maintenance managers in manufacturing environments, who can access records of machine sub-components directly from an image.

The Document Storage capability offered by eMaint pairs well with Interactive Plans, allowing you to store all essential documents in one location, such as SOPs, warranty certificates, safety manuals, LOTO procedures, and images of assets and parts. Additionally, you can add images and files to asset records, work order forms, work request forms, parts, and contact records, while organizing documents in multiple levels of folders and sub-folders for easy retrieval.

These features are ideal for those who prefer a more visual approach and offer color-coded asset status for quick identification.

Starting in October, the task was given to me to set up a work order system. We used eMaint. Our first work order was entered October 28th of 2011. So far we’ve had 500 work orders. We didn’t have a system, and now I have one that I can look up on my dashboard to see what’s open, what’s bee requested, what is being built in the east side or west side. I like that I can create reports that just show work orders depending on the location.

eMaint has made our lives easier. We know what tradesman are assigned what tasks, what departments are assigned what tasks. For example, I know where a bulk of our work orders come from, and can look into the dashboard pie chart to see 26% of work orders are opened in the East section of the area. It’s a one-stop shop.

We use eMaint X3 to keep track of our reports and all of our work orders for the National Park Service properties. Our reports are tied to our annual financial reports at the end of the year which are audited by a 3rd party. We can show the National Park Services the maintenance work that is being done and the financial ties that are associated with them because we are required to spend a certain dollar amount per year. Without eMaint X3, we would not be able to do this. The reports are very detailed and shows the work we did down to the element. Even down to what electrical outlet the work was done with. It’s been a great system to work with and the customer service has been beyond exceptional. We also do reports on open work orders, outstanding work orders, preventive maintenance work orders, and we can see where parts are and keep reports on our dashboards so properties can go in and see them on a daily basis.
