What is a CMMS?

A computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is software that maintains a database of information about a company’s maintenance operations so management can make informed decisions. A CMMS can be found in manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, and other industries where physical infrastructure is critical.

A CMMS can simplify work order management, asset management, parts and supply management, and maintenance reporting.

For information technology (IT) and healthcare technology management (HTM)teams, the Ordr platform can integrate with CMMS solutions to automate tasks, and enhance the asset inventory process. For example, Ordr can trigger the appropriate alert or workflow in CMMS systems when a device appears on the network, or a high severity vulnerability is discovered on a device. This frees staff from manual processes of tracking devices, which can often have gaps with the sheer volume of unmanaged devices on the network.

Inventory management is continuous and incorporating real-time context about devices into a CMMS is paramount.
