For the user coming off the street, CHAMPS is a very cumbersome software.

2018-01-23

I can do all my day to day tasks using CHAMPS.

Pros

Many useful and different reports are available.

Cons

It should be drag and drop when adding photos to a SKU. Filters should be added for the user to what he she is trying to accomplish

Cons

The problem in processing (returning, re-issuing and correctly tracking) serialized parts

CHAMPS has been a great experience, it is hands down an excellent software program for any business.

2018-01-22

Pros

Easy to use and everything is linked together for easy access to data.

Cons

I think the biggest con for CHAMPS is that the reports that come with the software could stand to be updated/enhanced a bit.

Use CHAMPS from a manager point of view for plant maintenance.

2015-06-26

Pros

The vendor is very supportive and customer focused. There are some areas of the CHAMPS ver. 11 that could be improved upon. As I understand it, ver. 12 has addressed most of them. We will converting to ver. 12 soon.

Cons

The search feature could be simplified.

Before purchasing a product like this, list your expectations features you want in great detail. Once you do get the product, a significant amount of effort needs to go in to setting it up. This will simplify the user's life later.

The upgrade to the CHAMPS version was executed without issue, even with customization.

2018-01-18

A single source platform for Preventative Maintenance management for facilities and operations that scales from a medium sized manufacturing installation to a large scale nuclear power plant, and everything in between...a one size can fit all platform.

Pros

The customization of the mobile interface increased the efficiency of the PM operations.

Cons

There is a small component that is required to operate outside the core server. This piece is called the Spooler. In future versions it would be great of the Spooler functionality could operate autonomously within the core server, but as a secondary system, reducing the licensing need for additional single use Windows system.

CHAMPS Maintenance Management System

2015-06-24

Pros

Its ability to provide real time cost tracking (labour and material) and to automate maintenance alert for critical equipment.

Cons

It relates to the Bill of Material (BOM) per asset, which requires that when an asset reaches its retirement age, you would want to be able to identify all the associated parts that are related to it for disposal, so those parts do not build the inventory level unnecessarily.

Make sure that the Maintenance managers identify their desired outcome at their facility and match that with what the Maintenance system being presented is able to provide. Make sure that the key stakeholders are involved in the decision making.

I use CHAMPS to issue POs,track invoicing, create PMS and Work orders.

2018-01-25

Easy to make my own reports that I can customize for my dept needs.

Pros

I can save a report to adobe and download to excel.

Cons

TAB page of POs if you hit the tab or wrong button, instead of the ENTER key, after you have typed in formation, you loose what you have typed, and have to start over. Also, sometimes doesn't save the information on this page after that happens. Have to close po, get back in, retype it.

CHAMPS works well out of the box. The Installation and Training teams are top notch.

2018-01-22

It has helped to improve our management of maintenance by allowing us to analyze trends and apply consistent standards to all areas of the mill.

Pros

Over the years, CHAMPS has done a good job of making the user interface more consistent.

Cons

The web based system is not available for all modules. This forces us into the client/server model, which is a bit more difficult to upgrade.

Response from CHAMPS Software


Hi Thomas,

This is Debby Mininni with CHAMPS Software. I see that your experience with our product and customer service has been less than ideal and would like to address the issues you have experienced if possible. We now offer a web version of the software in addition to mobile options for client/server deployments. Many other areas of the product have also been upgraded or improved as well.

I would like to connect with you to discuss this with you in more detail. Please contact me directly at debby@champsinc.com or 352-795-2362 ext. 223.

2021-07-10

Pros

To enhance the efficiency of PM activities, mobile interface modification was implemented.

Cons

It would be preferable if the system could be altered to be more web-based, which would allow for less functionality on Terminal Services servers.

Champs is a software that is easy to use and quite helpful for Inventory & Purchasing.

2018-01-24

The ease of use and the functionalities that assist in making my day to day activities more effective and efficient.

Pros

I love the audit trail in Version 13 that captures all changes. Version 13 now allows the automatic transference of comments on PRs to RFQs. Version 13 now allows "Favourites".

Cons

Its ability to have glitches that are hard to replicate since said glitch is normally manifested inspite of following the requisite steps within a process.

Champs my preferred Maintenace Tracking System

2015-07-04

Pros

Coming from a mechanical back ground I like the fact that the data base gives me the ability to track failures enabling me to trend machinery to prevent future failures.

Cons

I find that new hires that are not computer savvy have a problem in the beginning understanding the hierarchy. The system is quit simple if you try not to overthink it.

O&M Contract COR

2018-01-18

It was a relatively low cost solution to a difficult problem we faced. Through consultation with users and the CHAMPS staff we were able to determine this product would continue to fit our needs very well

Pros

Simplicity on terms of ease of data entry and retrieval but powerful enough to produce complex usage information to aid in determining O&M needs

Cons

I would like for the software to be more compatible with other scheduling type software but I also understand the challenges with proprietary type software.
