Auto Parts Maintenance Management Streamlined Through
eWorkOrders CMMS Software Solution

A large US-based auto industry manufacturer who supplies a wide variety of auto and industrial parts and supplies were looking for a more efficient way to manage their maintenance department.  Using the eWorkOrders CMMS software, they streamlined processes and improved communications between their maintenance department.

Business Challenge

The most common challenge affecting maintenance managers is optimizing maintenance operations with a very simple and easy to use software solution and getting everyone to buy into the process. In managing a large maintenance department, the big issue was that communications were lacking between departments and all the processes needed improvement.

The other big challenge they faced, is having a responsive vendor, who is easy to contact, is receptive to working on unusual requirements and is “easy to do business with”. Most important is working with a vendor who actually picks up the phone!

eWorkOrders is a dedicated software provider who understands their customers’ needs and responds quickly.

Business Objective

Maintaining an organized and well-run maintenance department requires proper management of company resources, so that production and productivity increases, the department runs more efficiently and that costs are kept at a minimum.
Being able to minimize breakdowns, put in work orders from anywhere, and have maintenance technicians respond quickly with access to real-time information is critical.

The bottom line is to control costs, be able to schedule work properly and efficiently, increase productivity and ensure that the company complies with all regulations.
