In today’s data-centric and connected world, analyzing big data and turning it into usable information is becoming unavoidable. Numbers are now necessary to quantify business decisions and navigate through your industry’s landscape. As it becomes easier to collect this data, advanced techniques are becoming more vital than ever to help sift through the unending onslaught of noise and get to the information that really matters. Maintenance management may not sound like an important use of data analysis, but properly filtering and reporting on information gathered through regular maintenance operations can reduce one of the largest costs of running your business.
The Advantages of Advanced Reporting
Advanced reporting takes the deluge of data you gather and helps turn it into analytics you can actually use. Information like gaps in spending over your returns becomes evident, and can assist in figuring out why these pitfalls are occurring. This information allows you to better determine the direction your maintenance teams should be taking.
Advanced reporting also allows you to identify trends in maintenance processes, leaving less to surprise and more to predictability. This can lead to reduced costs, reduced inventory sitting on shelves and aging prematurely, and streamline your maintenance process to make your maintenance machine as efficient as possible.
Not only does it allow you to identify pitfalls and trends, it gives you priceless insight into how your maintenance process works. Every step of your team’s work is laid out, giving you the transparency you need to know how your company is working inside and out.
Take Your Reports to the Next Level
While this all sounds great, you need a way to actually turn this data into reports. Some software gives you the power to collect the data you need, but can’t give you all the insight you need because of poor reporting. Other software has powerful reporting tools, but lacks the ability to gather enough usable data to fill those reports out. The majority of software can’t do either of these.
With our CMMS software, we set out to make data collection as easy as possible while making reports as robust and powerful as possible. You’ll be able to drill down to the information that matters to you, without any of the bloat or hassle you’d expect from another piece of maintenance software.
