Every company is trying to do more with less. This is especially true for the maintenance department. If you are a maintenance professional, you know exactly what I am talking about. Management doesn’t want to spend money on anything that doesn’t directly affect the bottom line.
This provides a problem for a maintenance professional who intuitively sees the value of a good CMMS, but doesn’t know how to get his management to approve a new software purchase. However, there is a simple solution — show your management how much money a CMMS is going to save the company by calculating CMMS ROI (Return on investment).
