Accruent CMMS - Maintenance Connection

Everyone has assets, everyone has people, and everyone has to do some work on those assets with those people. Maintenance Connection strives to provide an efficient solution to help get the work done while making it simple to record that you did. Aggregate that data and make decisions for the future based on real information.

This software is great for the construction industry. Especially if you are doing in-home estimates. For example, it would be the best option in the industry, to my knowledge, for an HVAC, electrical service or plumbing business. They are always listening to their customers and evolving based on the customer's feedback and needs.

They are timely, responsive, and resolve issues within a day. I only give them one less point because in their recent acquisition by Accruent they lost the MC Support portal they used to have, and in its place they are using Accruents version. Which is well, just not as good.

simPRO gives you the dedicated person you can email/call, they have chat, you can file a case, and they provide videos for pretty much everything. We can train on it via their videos; it's excellent.

If you do not have a scheduler for the PM and work order program hire one first. They can help with the migration and know how everything works in your facility.

Alternatives Considered

Accruent CMMS - Maintenance Connection

It much more user-friendly and does not have a lot of wasted information that you would never use. I did a lot of research on other CMMS programs and questioned other users and was allowed to use the test module for 3 months. That pretty much sealed the deal for everyone except for those afraid of change. Eventually, they all fall in line and accept the new CMMS system.

It is better than using Zendesk or trying to custom build a system. Zendesk and so many other tools are so focused on the sales aspect of things and don't give you enough back end options like job costing, inventory management, etc. It is the best tool I have used for solar project management thus far.

Return on Investment

Accruent CMMS - Maintenance Connection

  • Our parts cost overall has had a great positive impact on our ROI. We are able to track parts in a more efficient manner that helps us to optimize inventory and reduce stock outs, in addition to helping us identify items that have no turn over.
  • Equipment downtime with regards to Corrective vs Preventive type work orders has made a big impact to our ROI. With the use of the Preventive Maintenance Module in Maintenance Connection, we have made a good shift towards more planned machine maintenance and less corrective type failures.

  • simPRO is totally worth the investment
  • It is end to end. The whole staff is trained on one program.
