brain building tabletFM360 has extensive experience with selecting, implementing, optimizing, & managing Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) and the like (e.g. CAFM, IWMS, etc.).  FM360 can leverage their expertise to assist you and your organization with the following:

  • Getting more out of your existing CMMS
  •  Evaluating & improving processes & workflows
  • Selecting & implementing a CMMS
  • Data Editing and Entry
  • On-Going Administration & Support
  • CMMS-as-a-Service

FM360’s typical approach is as follows:

  • Determine organization’s vision/mission/goals and overall strategic plan
  • Identify stakeholders, including those outside the Facility Department
  • Map current workflow processes; look for opportunities to optimize leveraging a CMMS
  • Assemble user requirements and evaluation criteria
  • Identify potential software providers and request proposals
  • Evaluate proposals and conduct “test fit” interviews
  • Develop implementation/optimization plan, including budget & schedule
  • Provide support with data upload & entry, as needed
  • Develop Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs), such as nomenclature and workflow processes
  • Train staff & stakeholders
  • Assist with implementation & roll-out

  • Asset & Location Data Scrubbing, Entry, and Importing
  • Remote system administration
  • Update and maintain asset data, preventive maintenance schedules, process workflows, etc.
