You are not alone. We're here to help.
We offer a variety of additional services to support product success, customized for your team’s needs.
Just as your operating machinery and infrastructure form the basis for your assets, our consulting and technical experts are our most important Assets. Our consulting resources are software specialists with numerous years of implementation experience and each possesses technical, industry, and management expertise.
Understanding that effective Asset and Maintenance Management can be one of the most involved processes within your company, the AMS team is able to assist you with every aspect of your Asset Life Cycle management. Our consulting approach provides you with functional experts experienced in the integration of EAM to the overall business enterprise, and avoids the typical silo-based approach (Manufacturing, Distribution, Finance) many other firms assign their consultants to.
Reporting and performance measurement are the essential tools used by managers to assess and improve the performance of their operations and their equipment. Without the ability to easily extract relevant, accurate information, the EAM system becomes a data black hole.
Asset Management Solutions specializes in providing standard Work Management and Inventory Control reports, as well as developing custom reports tailored to your particular industry or work requirements. Our Report Developers are experienced experts with reporting solutions ranging from the EnterpriseOne Report Design Aid (RDA), Crystal Reports™, or most any other reporting tool you may wish to utilize.
Custom Development Services
We understand that packaged software solutions may not always have every feature function needed to support every industry. Or there just may be a need to change a software function to better support your business operations.
At Asset Management Solutions, our highly experienced development team routinely works with clients to develop custom solutions to meet their particular business needs. Whether developing solutions for the specific Oracle system in use at your site, or developing Web, Business Intelligence, or Mobile Computing solutions to compliment your EAM system, our development team can rapidly and economically solve any of your solutions needs.
Understanding that the training requirements will vary greatly from your Maintenance Mechanics to your IT Business Analysts, Asset Management Solutions provides training services designed to maximize knowledge transfer and encourage effective software usage.
From custom tailored on-site system instruction, to focused, Job-role based training, our trainers specialize in connecting with their target audience, realizing that within Maintenance, not every user is a computer expert. If requested, Asset Management Solutions can also prepare customized training documentation and conduct “Train the Trainer” oriented workshops to assist you with rolling out your EAM based systems using your internal training team.
Post-Implementation System Audits
In the software industry, there is a strange paradigm shift from the time when you are embarking on an EAM system implementation (“The software is the solution”) to the point when you are using the software (“The software is the problem”). When end-users struggle with using the system, or configurations fail to deliver on the promises of the solution, then a “Second pair of eyes” might just be what you need to re-energize your maintenance initiatives.
Understanding successful Asset and Maintenance Management initiatives require the right balance of People, Business Processes, and Technology, Asset Management Solutions performs focused assessments of your system configuration and processes and informs you how to tailor both to achieve accepted best practices.
Legacy CMMS Systems Conversion Planning
In a recent evaluation of “Best of Breed” and Enterprise level maintenance systems, the Gartner Group identified one of the biggest challenges companies face when trying to achieve effective Asset and Maintenance Management.
“EAM functionality is only achieved when [CMMS is] linked to an ERP application.”
– The Gartner Group
As IT Budgets get tighter and organizations strive to optimize their support resources, more and more companies are re-evaluating their legacy Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) in favor of fully intsegrated Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) solutions.
Asset Management Solutions can assist your company with various aspects of a CMMS to EAM systems migration, from Functional Comparisons to full Data Conversion projects. Our consulting team and data conversion teams have experience with most legacy CMMS packages (DataStream, MRO Software, Indus, Mincom, Mainsaver, Elke, etc.) and can translate effectively to your maintenance teams.
“Made All the Difference!”
“As we say in Maintenance, the first step is using the right tool for the job… AMS is the right team to call if you want JDE CAM to work. When our IT Department upgraded JD Edwards, they picked one firm to do all of the software. We tried to tell them the consultant didn’t understand maintenance, but this fell on deaf ears. After the upgrade went live, as feared, we still couldn’t book time to WO’s, couldn’t reorder parts, couldn’t do PM’s, etc. Then we hired Asset Management Solutions to come in, and we finally felt like we were talking to people who knew what we were talking about! We started making so much progress on our issues, now Accounting and Purchasing are requesting they look at those areas as well.”
