What is eMaintenance+?

eMaintenance+ is an online facilities maintenance platform. Organisations use eMaintenance+ to manage and measure reactive maintenance, supplier performance, equipment downtime, planned maintenance schedules and asset inventories.


Who uses eMaintenance+?

eMaintenance+ is used by organisations of all sizes. Our customers range from national retailers with 200 locations to one of the world’s largest companies with operations in 15 countries.


How do I use eMaintenance+?

eMaintenance+ is accessed through any modern web-browser, and is fully mobile enabled. You do not need any special hardware to use eMaintenance+.


How is eMaintenance+ different to other CAFM products?

eMaintenance+ is highly configurable.

Users have the ability to make the software fit their business, not the other way round. A process design tool lets users define workflow to ensure the most efficient practice. The software shapes user behaviour and drives the way maintenance tasks are handled, eliminating hidden costs in the FM supply chain.

Our software is also highly scalable. Large organisations require only a single instance of software to support thousands of locations across multiple countries or different brands. eMaintenance+ adapts as your business grows organically or through acquisition.


How will eMaintenance+ help me control my business more effectively?

eMaintenance+ gives you a single view of your entire maintenance operation and asset portfolio. Management information can be viewed, extracted and managed in real time. Pre-configured management reports support process standardisation across your business, driving more accurate budgeting and planning decisions.


How will it help me reduce my costs?

eMaintenance+ will help you reduce your maintenance and repair costs by achieving efficiencies in fixed asset reliability, supply chain procurement and organisational cost reduction.

The majority of our customers report an ROI from eMaintenance+ within the first six to twelve months of use.
