Why Breweries Are Using CMMS

March 2022

Breweries CMMS

n 2018 the number of breweries operating in the United States was more than 7,346, including 4,521 microbreweries, 2,594 brewpubs, and 231 regional breweries making more than 15,000 barrels of craft beer.

Preparing Your Maintenance Operations for the New Year

December 2021

maintenance planningThe new year is rapidly approaching, what better time than now to start evaluating how your current system is performing and start preparing your maintenance operations for the New Year.

Start by assessing if your current maintenance management system is meeting your objectives and giving you and your organization the critical data needed to make good business decisions. Then review and assess what your needs are to make your maintenance operations more efficient.  Now is the time to establish your needs, set your goals and objectives, and invest in a maintenance management system that will help exceed your goals.

When you are evaluating your current maintenance operations, ask yourself these questions:

  • Is your data really secure? Does your vendor have a Cyber Security Rating of 100%?  With all of the cyber attacks having the wrong vendor managing your data can be devastating to your business.               
  • Is your current system providing you with complete, reliable data to manage your maintenance process?
  • Does the data include all of the information and detail that you need?
  • Can you attach drawings, images, and documents?
  • Can you access your data from anywhere using a computer, Smartphone or mobile device?
  • Can you keep track of all of your maintenance repair expenses?
  • Can you access your spare parts inventory from anywhere?
  • Is your data readily available for inspections?

Once you have taken a look at what processes are working and not working, you want to make the necessary adjustments to your current maintenance processes.  Some of the steps that you can take to improve your current processes may include:  Read more…


How CMMS Helps During Supply Chain Disruptions

November 2021

Supply Chains eWorkOrders

Today many businesses are recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and other catastrophes. Supply chain disruptions have made us more aware of our dependencies and the things that we don’t even think about because everything is operating so efficiently. Businesses are looking at their processes and what can be done so that they are more prepared for any disaster or disruption that could have an impact on their business operations.

Supply chains are the core of their business; any disruption in their operations can have a major impact on production and delivery processes. It is a fact that maintenance has a major impact on business operations, and they can’t afford to have equipment break down and sit around and wait for parts that may or may not arrive for days or weeks. When production stops and distribution of products get delayed, maintenance teams are scrambling for spare parts, a specialized vendor, or other tasks, to get things fixed and production back up running quickly. This is costing time, money, unhappy customers, and your business.

Managing Inspections and Audits With CMMS Software

August 2021

audits inspections cmmsInspections are a very important part of your business.  Ensuring the safety and protection of your workers and meeting compliance standards can be frustrating and complex.  Trying to get everything organized and prepared for safe quality food (SQF) EPA audits, OSHA and other inspections means a lot of work and a lot of your time trying to prepare. 

With the increase in regulations, safety, etc., audits and inspections are not the same as they were in the past.  Having an employee walk through the department with a spreadsheet looking for signs of problems is no longer efficient.  Trying to manage processes and keeping everything organized and under control requires more than a spreadsheet, pencil and paper.

Having everything stored in and accessible in a centralized system has lots of benefits and makes preparing for inspections and audits a lot easier and less challenging.  A computer maintenance management system (CMMS), can help you to easily organize, store, and quickly access audit-related documents in one centralized system and create detailed reports instantly to help show that you meet inspection and audit requirements.   All of this can be done from a computer, smartphone or mobile device.  And anyone on the team can do this no one needs to be an expert. It is that easy.  Read more….

  1. A good understanding of the customers\business requirements.
  2. Define data security specifications.
  3. Design the disaster recovery process.
  4. Identify the appropriate team members, and their capabilities, that will be implementing the software.
  5. Design the data structure necessary to implement.
  6. Select the appropriate software for your back end and front end.
  7. Design the user interface with the customer’s needs in mind. Ensure if it is really easy to utilize.
  8. Customer support preparation.
  9. Determine Service Level Agreement (SLA) including turnaround time, etc.
  10. Documentation for the entire infrastructure.
  11. Customer training.
  12. Determine the best places to market your product and market it as much as possible.
  13. Listen to user feedback and use this to improve your offering.
  14. I feel the most ideal way to build a SaaS product is to incorporate it into a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS). The main reasons for using a CMMS SaaS are accessibility from anywhere using a computer, Smartphone, or mobile device, data security, and low total cost of ownership.

What are the goals of successful implementation?

Clearly defined and agreed to objectives.

Complete dedication and focus on the project plan.

Strategic flexibility.

Alignment of best practices.

A good understanding of the team’s capabilities and availability.

Continuous assessment.”

Give Your Campers The Best Camp Experience

summer camp maintenance

In preparing camps for opening, one of their primary concerns is meeting the COVID-19 guidelines, and the health, safety, and welfare of their campers, customers, user community, and employees. CAMPs are continuing to work quickly to meet extensive guidelines and provide the high level of support that their customers expect. 

From maintaining buildings, equipment, and acres of property packed with outdoor adventure activities and programs, there is a lot to maintain and keep track of to ensure the safety of campers and guests. Keeping things running smoothly, ensuring that areas and equipment are safe, having the ability to manage work orders, and ensuring that work orders are all being taken care of and responded to quickly, is extremely important. Having a system that is reliable, easy to use, and accessible from anywhere, and is reasonably priced is a must. Read more…

December 2020

Jeff Roscher, President, eWorkOrders shares his vision with Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) of his vision for 2021.

Hybrid customer servicing evolves

The COVID-19 pandemic will likely transform the workplace for some time, and those changes will be reflected in how ESM is delivered, said Jeff Roscher, co-founder and president of eWorkOrders, which sells a computerized maintenance management system.

Customers can now put service requests in using a web-based interface, he said. They can easily check the status of their requests and get notifications when the jobs have been completed.

“Less contact and less interaction with people are going to be the new way of doing things.”
