With technology especially a CMMS they can do more, in less time, ideally, with less stress on themselves, managers and vendors. Mobile CMMS (Computerized Maintenance Management Software) Systems is a powerful tool, according to a 2014 online survey of mobile CMMS systems users that generated 170 responses. They asked about the costs and benefits of using this technology.
- Most respondents stated they access mobile CMMS systems through a tablet (44%), 35% use a smartphone and 21% reported using both devices.
- Respondents were asked about how accessing a mobile CMMS system impacted their efficiency and 43% said it had improved significantly with 28% reporting a moderate increase.
- Generally younger technicians reported more efficiency. Younger employees have largely grown up with computer technology and may be more likely to use it efficiently and recognize its benefits.
- Those using tablets reported the highest efficiency improvements with 65% stated they saw a “significant increase.”
