The Customer is a manufacturer who was practicing preventive and reactive maintenance. But the existing maintenance process needed to be replaced with a better solution to track data about production & maintenance and gather more intelligence from the system. DreamzCMMS’s Asset and Maintenance Management platform provided the solution aptly.
Prior to DreamzCMMS, the maintenance manager used a spreadsheet system to manage maintenance. There was too much paperwork and poor data organization. The overall process was inefficient. There were too many frequent breakdowns to manage on an ad-hoc basis. This inefficient process necessitated the replacement of the existing process and system in place.
DreamzCMMS was selected after a short trial period. It fulfilled the need to track and analyze data and all maintenance related information. Intuitive and intelligent data management enabled the organization to track important information with ease. Identifying problem areas like finding assets causing the majority of breakdowns, became easy.
There were several benefits to the manufacturer after implementing DreamzCMMS. The mean time between failures (MTBF) increased drastically by 250 percent and reduced reactive work orders by 40%. Implementation of recurrent preventative schedule was easy on regular basis with DreamzCMMS.
Before implementing DreamzCMMS, the manufacturer used multiple spreadsheets to manage assets, maintenance, and inventory. It was too much time consuming work to track data. Too much of Paperwork was time consuming and error prone. Identifying asset related pain areas was difficult.

Implementing DreamzCMMS caused a major improvement in mean time between failures. Cost savings on its monthly maintenance budget have been increasing. With the digital solution, less paperwork and more computerized data, it was easier to track KPIs like work order compliance, mean time between failures, and mean time to repair.
DreamzCMMS with its captured data helped the maintenance manager to identify an asset with an ongoing issue over an extended period, which caused the majority of the year’s breakdowns. With the help of DreamzCMMS, the manufacturer is working on to reduce these breakdowns.
DreamzCMMS has helped the manufacturer to identify assets that had a considerable number of breakdowns and focus on solving repeat issues.
The team can use the DreamzCMMS data about failures, shared with the equipment manufacturer. This helped in finding a solution to fix the equipment.
DreamzCMMS has helped the manufacturer to achieve most savings in equipment downtime and processes. With DreamzCMMS, captured data, it provided insight to see where its most reactive jobs are coming from, address any problems, and reduce asset downtime. MTBF increased greatly. In other words, it helped in better production & maintenance.
With DreamzCMMS saving time for routine maintenance work and planning, the team could now focus in other areas. Safety measures are now dealt with more proactively and in a planned manner with DreamzCMMS.
DreamzCMMS reduced a lot of unnecessary manual work and time consuming while moving to a digital solution from a manual process. Time spent in paperworks and spreadsheets are not removed. With the available additional bandwidth and peace of mind related to maintenance work management, technicians now have the time and energy to learn more about the equipment.
They can study and learn more about equipment and be self-sufficient to take care of the issues. Reduction in unplanned breakdowns caused reducing the number of jobs for contractors, saving cost.
