By understanding the capabilities of facility management (FM) and computerized maintenance management software (CMMS), managers can utilize their resources efficiently and ensure effective long-term performance. In today’s business environment, due to various advantages, the need for facility management or CMMS software is increasing each day. Maintaining and keeping track of assets and resources requires plenty of effort and human resources. Using a CMMS or facility management software makes the process a lot easier.
Defining Facility Management Software
CloudApper’s Facility Management and CMMS is a web and a mobile-based dashboard that enables organizations to streamline their complete maintenance and repair program and manage their assets efficiently. It helps organizations to streamline their work order processes and reduce the overall space and maintenance costs.
The difference between the two is that the Facility Manager only focuses on work facilities, assets, and maintenance management, while CMMS, in addition to asset management, also focuses on maintenance scheduling, inventory management, work order routing, and reporting.
Both of these applications offer an automated system in order to manage the preventive and scheduled maintenance of an organization’s assets and facilities. Below are some of the reasons that highlight the advantages of implementing a facility management software system across industries, including healthcare:
- Easy approval of processes
- Greater flexibility
- Extends the life cycle of assets
- Better data management
- High return on investment (ROI)
- Asset tracking and space management
- Provides flexibility
Application in Healthcare
Using facility management software in healthcare provides an innovative way to streamline the resources and assets in hospitals. It helps to ensure that all day-to-day operations in a hospital are effectively managed without compromising quality standards. At the same time, healthcare providers can optimize all their physical resources throughout their facilities.
In fact, healthcare facility management is more than just a necessity because it helps to ensure that all assets and service requests are responded to and managed swiftly without compromising their quality and productivity. At the same time, these software applications can ensure that all medical facilities, equipment, property resources, sterilization machines as well as human resources are well optimized for running smooth and uninterrupted operations around the clock.

There are many advantages to implementing CloudApper’s cloud-based facility management and CMMS applications in healthcare, which include:

The maintenance modules play an important role in the maintenance of all the assets and resources ensuring longevity and reliability of medical equipment and machinery.
Optimum Utilization of Resources
Facility Management software ensures that all the resources and healthcare facilities are optimized for maximum efficiency. Certain features within the software help to efficiently utilize unused space in the facility.
Security and Safety of Assets
Another advantage of using facility management software is that it helps ensure complete security and safety of facility assets. This can be achieved through asset tracking and machine maintenance features. All the essential equipment, assets, and facilities in a healthcare system can be monitored with this software. Healthcare providers can keep track of all the resources and their availability and stay prepared in case of an emergency.

Facility management software allows data collection in greater detail, including images of completed work and in a much-more organized manner. The data can be easily accessed and displayed for analysis. This also means you can improve and prove your compliance efforts with various national, industry, or global regulations and be better prepared for an audit.
Higher Return on Investment
From a financial perspective, it is easy to justify the return on investment from implementing a facility management software system.
