MRO Software announces enhancement of MAXIMO 5
MRO Software, the leading provider of strategic asset management solutions, has announced the enhancement of MAXIMO 5, its strategic asset management solution, by adding two leading-edge features - the Key Performance Indicator (KPI) and the Dashboard performance management capabilities.
The MAXIMO Dashboard and MAXIMO KPI Manager are designed to give users immediate access to personalized and highly relevant metrics to measure asset performance at a glance. The added functionality is available to all MAXIMO 5.2 customers at no additional cost.
"The two new features dramatically widen the range of reporting and display options available in MAXIMO 5, making it the most powerful asset management solutions available today," said Oliver Schulz, Sales and Marketing Manager,
eSolutions trading as MRO Software Middle East. "Our Middle East customers can leverage these capabilities to gain a competitive edge and a higher degree of integration with global businesses. The flexibility our customers
benefit from this variety of KPI's will allow them to have the critical metrics available to run their business and make decisions based on real-time information."
"A more powerful MAXIMO solution means that MRO will be in a stronger position to market it to more diversified sectors, other than the core area of oil and defence," said Schultz. "The world over, a cross-section of industries
is using MAXIMO solution with measurable bottom-line results. In addition to the oil and gas sector, utilities and transportation, we are now targeting the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sector, because globally this field has gained maximum benefit from our MAXIMO solution."
The MAXIMO Dashboard capability allows users at any level of the organization to select the layout and content in their Dashboard to display information most relevant to their responsibilities. Users can monitor key business
metrics, set and monitor operational goals and take a strategic, enterprise-wide approach to asset management. MAXIMO Dashboard provides real-time, actionable information, allowing users to respond quickly to potential problems or opportunities. Dashboard contents are specified by the user, displayed in a variety of formats including dynamic graphs, gauges and lists and require no technical skills to configure.
MAXIMO KPI Manager includes a range of pre-defined KPIs such as Mean Time to Fail, Actual-to-Plan Variance, and Preventive Maintenance (PM) Work Orders Overdue. Custom KPIs are created quickly and easily to allow users at all levels to align their daily metrics with organizational goals. Users create the KPIs to monitor and view, in graphical form, from the MAXIMO Dashboard. KPI Manager gives users the flexibility to monitor the metrics they need, without having to rely solely on pre-defined, or 'canned' KPIs.
Unlike other solutions, MAXIMO's KPI Manager eliminates users' dependency on IT resources to modify or create new KPIs.
