Maintenance Tips For Improved Profits: Creating the Business Case to Invest in Automation


Does it really make sense to spend money to save money? The answer may surprise you when it comes to maintenance of large capital assets including Facilities, Fleet, Plant Equipment and yes, even computers. It makes even more sense when you consider that today more and more companies are adding a new line item in their financial statements called "Deferred Maintenance Revenue Write Down". A lack of preventive maintenance affects the shareholders of all companies due to aging assets and reactive maintenance practices. A complete preventive maintenance program consisting of better business practices and a simple tool such as a Computerized Maintenance Management Software (CMMS) or Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) package can streamline the process and result in immediate savings in both time and money. So how do you justify the initial investment and where can the cost savings be seen across the enterprise?

Desktop Management's Dirty Little Secret


ESD (electronic software distribution) promises to simplify software distribution and management, and eliminate ''sneakernet'' the costly, time-consuming manual process that some companies still use to do upgrades and installations. Unfortunately, the cure often has some of the same pitfalls as the problem, not to mention a few snags of its own.
