Your work in maintenance is critical – and that work directly influences the overall profitability of your organization. 

And today, when your time and resources are in flux more than ever before, we want you to harness new ways to boost profitability and feel confident about your future in maintenance operations. 

We’ve already gone over: 

Now, we want to finish our series with ways that you can get help on your profitability journey – specifically through partner services. 


Software + services = a recipe for success 

As we mentioned in the first blog, CMMS (computerized maintenance management system) or EAM (enterprise asset management) software is key to your success with avoiding profit killers. Using this type of software can keep you organized and efficient around labor, parts, assets and staff as you work more proactively. 

Just as the software you use is important, so are the services you choose from partners like your software vendor. 

From the services you use to get up to speed with the system to how you stay trained and improve your usage, these can make or break your software experience and profitability.


In fact, services can help insure your ROI. Here’s how: 

  • Consulting services historically improve time-to-value by 50% 

  • Inadequate implementation guidance is the leading cause of unsatisfied CMMS users 

  • Services can be applied to match your budget, goals and timeline 


5 services you need to be more profitable 

Here are the five services that we recommend you focus on to help you avoid profit killers in your maintenance processes. 


Implementation consulting 

What you need: 

  • The right implementation process and experts with several decades of experience to guide you 

  • Clear goals and objectives and a path to meeting them 


Data migration 

What you need: 

  • A clear way to adapt your previous data into your CMMS 

  • The proper framework for continuing to collect quality data in the system 

  • Help with data cleansing and normalization 

  • Help getting your data to align with your goals, objectives and workflow 



What you need: 

  • Ongoing user training that is accessible (whether on-site or virtual) and valuable 

  • Events like user conferences to get team training and buy-in, plus encourage adoption and growth 



What you need: 

  • A discovery process that helps you identify your true needs around potential integrations  

  • Multiple interface options within your system (ex. connector tools, API connections, UI import or export) 


Ongoing support 

What you need: 

  • Software experts you can count on and a help desk you can contact via phone, email or chat 


Your next steps to kickstarting your profitability 

To take the next steps on your journey to higher profitability, you need a partner who will walk with you and help you achieve your maintenance and organizational goals. While it’s not going to happen overnight, a strategic partner can help you lay out milestones and goals on your path and help you move step by step. 

With the right software and services by your side to ensure your success, you’ll be well on your way to avoiding the top profit killers and seeing results that help fuel maintenance excellence.
