Asa Moeckly, Partner and Service Manager, had worked for two years to develop his own computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) using Access database software. However, Moeckly was forced to conclude it couldn’t meet all of his needs and began searching on the Web for an alternative.
eMaint CMMS met all of his criteria: it was ready-to-go, could be customized to Johnson Brothers’ operations and was Web-based ““ meaning Moeckly could access it from his iPad no matter where he was, in the field or at home. eMaint’s solution took about one month to implement from start to finish, including training, importing data from other databases and adapting the business’ inventory storage system. The most surprising outcome, says Moeckly, is what the data collection showed: “We were investing more time and money into maintenance than we had ever thought.”
