Planned CMMS implementation is key to success
The cost of purchasing a CMMS has fallen in recent years, particularly with the introduction SaaS, System licensing costs now range from less than £10,000 to more than £500k. Companies who have a successful CMMS installation recognised the importance of a robust selection process and a structured implementation programme. Implementation determines the ongoing success and use of the system within your business. It can cost more than the initial investment but an effective implementation is the key to maximising the use, sustainability and benefits you can achieve.
Many organisations fail to recognise this and, as a result, have to fast track the implementation so that it becomes an installation of an IT system rather than the implementation of a system that supports the maintenance function in all its aspects and delivers real benefits to the business.
Installation – loading of software onto PC and Servers.
Implementation – Realisation of business benefits.
MCP’s twelve-stage approach
MCP’s twelve-stage approach ensures the software is implemented and delivers the benefits upon which its justification was based. The most important part of any management system is the people and our strong project and change management practices ensure that people understand their role in the system and are trained appropriately.
The strength of our implementation process is that it focusses on the people, providing them with an understanding of the overall ‘system’ and detailed understanding of their role within it, not just showing them which field to put information into on a computer screen.
A tailored approach
Our process is completely tailorable and works just as well with a single-site implementation of an entry-level system as it does with blue-chip multinationals with requirements for validation and compliance with CFR21 part 11 and GAMP. It ensures your implementation meets with any industry requirements for FATs and SATs or installation qualifications (IQ) and that your system delivers the benefits you want.
