CMMS selection needs careful consideration
The purchase and selection usually represent a major capital investment and many of the systems fall into disuse, usually within a very short period-of-time. Few, if any, are ever used to their full potential. One of the main reasons for this is that the wrong system is being purchased.
MCP has developed a methodology that ensures a system that is ‘fit for purpose’ is selected, a process that can save you £10K’s in capital outlay and help ensure the system delivers the benefits you expect.
MCP’s six-stage to CMMS selection
MCP’s six-stage approach puts the business first and ensures you select the right tool for the job.
We take the view that the CMMS is a tool within the maintenance management system – it is not the maintenance management system. Once we have identified the systems that ‘best fit’ your needs we use our experience of working with suppliers to help you select a shortlist of potential suppliers that take into account not only the technical functionality of the system but important business factors such as after-sales support and system development. We will also help you identify the potential benefits streams and thereby a justification for a system that works.
Ensuring the correct CMMS selection
Our approach not only ensures you select the correct system but saves you the time and expenses of having to re-engineer all your maintenance process to suit the design of the CMMS. Why would you spend valuable capital on a system and redesign your processes all for a system that no one will use? And yet many organisations do just that. Our approach ensures that doesn’t happen to you.
