"It was really neat to see the maintenance staff start embracing what we were doing. It only took, really, a week or so for the maintenance staff to get the hang of the software. Since then ... I’ve seen an increase in productivity by about 20-30%."- Joe Romero, Director of Facilities
"I have tried and tested at least 5 different CMMS systems before trying Limble, and I must say I haven't come across something as intuitive yet powerful as Limble CMMS. There are  features that will make me recommend this to anyone: the robustness of the system, and ease of use, and the customer service."- Mohammad Hassaan Akram, Factory & Maintenance Manager
From day one, we realized we have the potential to make a real difference.
We realized that every time someone uses one of our features, it is an opportunity for Limble to save our customers time. Even improvements that only shave 10 seconds off a task will add up over time. Our approach of constantly improving feature impact and optimizing feature speed has helped each of our customers save thousands of hours as their team uses Limble.
To put this to the test, some of our customers measured their work output before and after implementing Limble. They have all reported a work output increase of at least 20%.

Communication and Coordination - No need to call, email, or text. Many managers spend a significant portion of their day assigning tasks and following up on them. With Limble, all of the work assignments for a facility can be either automated or automatically sent to the manager to divvy out to the team. All a manager has to do to make an assignment is drag the task under the name of the team member.
Reporting - An important job of a manager is to assess the performance of the maintenance program and report results to other departments or executives. With Limble, a report format only needs to be created once, and it will automatically be updated and generated. No more creating spreadsheets, lists, and digging through paperwork.
Paperwork - Paperwork is often considered a necessary evil in the maintenance world. With Limble, it can be completely eliminated. Inputting data for a task in Limble App is faster and easier than filling out a sheet of paper. On average, Limble saves a technician 40 minutes of paperwork each day.
Mobile App - The Limble mobile app is a powerful time-saving tool. It allows a technician to go from one job to the next without having to return to a specific location, such as his boss’s desk. Technicians will receive additional assignments and priorities in real time. This reduces, and can even eliminate, the need for calls, texts, or emails. The app also allows a technician to have access to a full maintenance history, as well as the documents associated with each Asset. For example, he/she can quickly see how problems were resolved in the past, review a list of needed tools or read the important information in an owner’s manual. Knowledge is power, and the knowledge that Limble offers empowers technicians with the information they need to do their work more efficiently.
On average, [Limble] saves me an hour to two hours a day, depending on the workload. The biggest thing for me is being able to do things on my phone, on the fly.

Many people learn the hard way that if you do not regularly add motor oil to a vehicle, eventually the engine will seize, and it will need to be replaced. Replacing an engine costs about $6,000 ($1,200 in labor and $4,800 for the motor), while regularly adding oil to an engine costs around $7 a month. In this example, Reactive Maintenance would be waiting for the engine to seize before taking action, while Preventive Maintenance would be adding oil to prevent a breakdown. It is easy to see how Preventive Maintenance can greatly reduce labor and part costs. The difficult part about changing from a Reactive Maintenance Program to a Preventive Maintenance Program is that it requires constant scheduling, planning and organizing. Limble automates all three of these activities. Limble makes it easy to create and maintain a Preventive Maintenance Program.
Downtime is when the processes of a business that make money are halted. In manufacturing, it is when a part of or all of a production line is stopped. Downtime is often the result of a malfunction or equipment failure, which can be mitigated with the proper preventive maintenance activities. An hour of downtime can be very expensive for a company because it results in lost labor (affected workers and maintenance technicians), lost production value, and overhead. An hour of downtime can easily cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
P.M.'s were created for each type of equipment and were easily copied to similar assets on different lines.
After about a month of using Limble we could start to see our maintenance trends on the graphs. Additional P.M.'s were created to counter the trends and we actually witnessed a drop in our downtime.
After using Limble for over a year I can say that it is paying for itself and worth every area of implementation.

Limble greatly improves how inventories are managed. On average, customers reduce their inventory spend by 17% when using the Limble inventory management features.
The two greatest forms of inventory waste are having too much inventory and running out of inventory. Purchasing too much inventory ties up cash and clutters your storage area. To make matters worse, this has a snow ball effect; people are more likely to purchase supplies before checking current inventory when there is clutter. The problem with running out of inventory is that obtaining more becomes an immediate need. In order to prevent equipment downtime it will be necessary to pay an employee to make an emergency trip to a supplier, pay priority shipping, or purchase from a more expensive vendor.
Limble allows parts inventories to be managed automatically. Everyone will be able to easily check current inventory levels before purchasing more supplies. Each time a part is used in a task, one is subtracted from inventory. A minimum part threshold can be set so when the inventory falls below that number, a notification will be sent to the manager that additional parts need to be purchased. Limble makes it easy to optimize inventory levels.
[With Limble,] I can track all of our supplies that come in, how they are getting used, look at the usage rates, and then also be able to forecast budgets for next year. It has dropped my budget tremendously; I was actually able to hire another guy because of what we were able to save.

There are many reasons why Limble wins accounts when compared to other software. The top three reasons are that Limble is the easiest CMMS to implement and use — resulting in the quickest to a return on investment (ROI), it has the most powerful and flexible reporting functions and it has the most in-depth functionality at the best value.
All companies say they have an easy-to-use software. But how do you measure that? There are no "easy units." One way is to talk to people who use the software.
Limble interviewed a user by the name of Eloy. He is a self-proclaimed "older guy" and he explained that he is pretty resistant to change. However, the first day that he started using Limbe, he realized that it would be easy and helpful. After that, he fully supported using the new software. (Click here to watch the interview)
This software is very easy to use. All CMMS suppliers say that, but I found this one to be exactly that. This software, in my opinion, is the best value out there in the CMMS world. My team of maintenance techs got onboard quickly and loves the app. Anytime you can get 8 of 8 maintenance techs to get on board, you have a winner.

A good CMMS should be a business intelligence tool. That is only possible if the software provides accurate and easy-to-find data. Limble makes it easy to measure and improve the performance of your facility. The software is flexible and allows for reports to be customized and automatically created.
The ability to analyze in realtime is much more valuable than any time you can save
- Mohammed Akram, Facilities & Maintenance Manager, Unilever
Limble is the most modern CMMS software. This is apparent not only by the world-class power of the features we offer, but also in its cost structure. The only cost to running Limble is a simple monthly fee. There are no contracts, set-up fees, or training costs. Limble offers unlimited support via call, email, and chat. The goal is that every customer is completely satisfied with the service and software each day.

With our online chat system, phone support and email support we normally respond to customers within a matter of minutes. From there we can directly look at your account with you to troubleshoot any problems you are having even if it is as simple as "How do I setup my first Asset?".
At Limble we our primary goal is to make sure you succeed. We have built our business model around that. Since customers can cancel at any time the only way for Limble to make money is to ensure our customers are continually happy and one of the top ways we do that is by having amazing customer support.
Honestly - the customer support has been fabulous. We had a minor feature request that was deployed within 24 hours - which is unheard of. Even better when you consider our business is located in a completely different time zone (somewhere is Australia). Limble is quite intuitive and I love the ability to have assets nested within each other.
