IBM Maximo Tracking System

Reviewed 5 years ago

Employee time tracking was added to the system. After getting a baseline of time the system was able to compair the logged calls with the time the employee works daily. Also after getting a years worth of data some of the report was able to show graphs of how well the equipment was working or not working.

Pros

The program is good at getting things done in the background. Importing the current records can be a problem if someone was to go and make changes after the snap shot was taken. All updates after the import wouldn't get imported. The uses are endless as to what function that you may have just set it up they way you would like a report to run and it works every time unless the server goes down.

Cons

The learning curve for the system is massive and will take some time to get used to and proficent in the workings of how things are running.

End user review after 2 years

Reviewed 5 years ago

This has improved traceability and accountability, efficiency and reporting.

Pros

This has replaced several systems meaning you can find a wealth of detailed information in one place. It is easy and quick to produce reports and categorise information. Everything is precise and you can tailor the pages you view to your needs, sharing them with whoever needs to see them. Creating your own queries is also very useful.

Cons

Unable to view jobs planned in preferred order however I believe that this is a company limitation rather than the application itself.

My Maximo experience

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall it's a powerful software that can easily handle a company's inventory and workflow management. I would however offer an in depth training to employees using the software.

Pros

This software is loaded with tons of tools to manage inventory, and general work flow in the industrial environment. We use it for logging and taking repair work orders, handling of parts orders and fufillment and job scheduling.

Cons

The interface is really hard to use. There's so many options and hidden menus that you can get lost easily. Setting up your home page takes a long time but once it's set up i's easy to use.

Maximo

Reviewed 5 years ago

we are able to view all job details in one place therefore do not need 6 other systems open to gather all of the information before the job goes ahead as we did previously. with updating permits in real time it has saved money on fines. overall apart from afew negative things listed Maximo is a good buy.

Pros

* the dig teams that use maximo close jobs correctly and in real time stopping fines on permits. * easy to view all information * easy to see notes added by the office with regards to customer information so nothing is missed whilst out on site. * we can update pictures to the teams * pin point locations of digging. * attach gas drawings to the job so the teams are digging safely.

Cons

* maximo has a tendancy to freeze * if teams are in a bad signal area it can cause permits to not be updated in time. * alot of the time i need to reset my password * on a small screen it sometimes looks to much for the teams out in the field.

Administrator and End User

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

It's simply the best! IBM seeks to have the best CMMS product available and they have that and they continue to make it better all the time!

Cons

I think the licensing scheme is confusing and hard to understand. I think it's a road block to asset owner's looking for the best CMMS. I think the cost is prohibitive. I realize it's an expensive product to produce and maintain but I also believe it's severely overpriced. Requires asset owners to lean heavily on implementation partners who do not fully understand the product (as an end user) and as a result they are not able to help match the customer needs with the product ability.

Maximo User / Administrator for the past 20+ years, very flexible

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

The good and bad is the flexibility of the product. Each company implements and utilizes the software differently. But, companies who have similar issues can share solutions through the numerous User groups, like MUWG and GOMaximo. In addition to being a great asset / maintenance management package, it is also a developmental platform so it can be configured to solve many problems and replace in-house systems.

Cons

Being so flexible, there are times, especially when upgrading to a newer version, that it is difficult for IBM to duplicate issues we are having.

Maximo in the Utility Space

Reviewed 8 years ago
Pros

At the time of purchase we bought Maximo from PSDI. The product at the time allowed us to standardize on a distributed platform while saving costs at an enterprise level. As some of the main players from PSDI moved to IBM after the purchase, the support model stayed the same. IBM did bring a bit more scalability to the tool while leveraging various partners for bolt ons and integration.

Cons

As Maximo changed hands the licensing model changed along with it. With all of the good IBM brought to the table, per user costs did rise.

This system is to Expensive and Complex for unless your business is Maxim

Reviewed 6 years ago

Stream line the data base make it more user friendly put some training videos online for everyone to use for free. The system is for companies that have computer geeks not to maintenance people who are alawys getting budgets slashed.Keep it simple stupid most of the time it's a flashy front program and the real work is done with excel,word or Google products.

Pros

The name is short. It looks good it is web based the icons are bright the drop down menus help.The customer services is great as long as you pay the fees Not worth it other programs compete at a fraction of the cost.

Cons

To complex a system for most businesses you have to have a staff dedicated just for the system. 450 page manual that never gets read who has time. Companies use it for show no for work because it takes to long to learn it and if you have a problem with it your stuck. Labor intense system others can do with petty cash funds.

Maximo Enterprise Asset Management software

Reviewed 8 years ago

The software is fairly complex out of the gate, so self training for meaning full use is hard and slow going. Add-on modules with additional licensing costs and some level of customization are more than likely required to get meaningful functionality which drive up costs and the need to have experienced developers involved in start up.

Pros

This software is widely used throughout the client base that we serve. The software is fairly robust, and can accommodate most facility management program needs.

Cons

The software is not very user friendly, partly because of the complexity and depth of possibilities when trouble shooting issues.

Reviewed 6 years ago

I use it for time sheet tracking, purchasing processes, and other processes.

Pros

Maximo has a wealth of functionality built in which means you can do more with a single program. This allows for a single point of use program which is potentially more efficient.

Cons

This software is not user friendly at all! I have used a lot of difficult software but this one is the least user friendly I have encountered in a long time! It really detracts from the positives of the software.

Maximo is web-based and relatively easy to navigate. Projetech made the switch between versions as seamless as possible with such a huge gap between with very little lost work time. They are always available to answer any questions or to talk me through learning something new.

theres alternatives, but IBM maximo perform at it cost

Reviewed a year ago

As someone who has been using IBM Maximo Application Suite for the past 2 years, I can confidently say that it is an exceptional asset management solution. During this time, I've come to appreciate its intuitive and user-friendly interface, which has made it easy for me to manage my assets efficiently.One of the features that I particularly like about Maximo is its ability to integrate with other IBM...

Pros

Comprehensive asset management solution: IBM Maximo Application Suite offers a range of capabilities, from asset lifecycle management to maintenance and repair operations, that help organizations optimize their asset performance, minimize downtime, and reduce costs.

Cons

Implementation and maintenance costs: The cost of implementing and maintaining IBM Maximo Application Suite, including the software itself and any associated services, can be substantial. Additionally, the initial implementation and ongoing maintenance and upgrades may require significant resources.

Pros

Capable and has amazing industry verticals which set Maximo apart from all competitors. The addition of HSE manager was a great value and the recent Supply Chain functionalities enhancement were spot on. Overall, when it comes to having an out of the box product with deep industry understanding, Maximo is the way to go.

Cons

##Product 1: The product lacks standards business processes, just like SAP, Maximo must ship with standard business process. Stressing on the same point, I'd rather spend time and money understanding the standard business process and using it as a starting point than having the absolute freedom to create whatever because this is where "replicating legacy systems" starts. ##Product 2: It is difficult...

The most comprehensive asset management software in the market

Reviewed 2 years ago

IBM Maximo is a powerful software that is loved by us and our clients when they figure out the ease of use and how they're capable of managing their large base of assets with the extensive capabilities of Maximo. This masterpiece from IBM is very powerful and can be used for different applications. One great example of how the software can be used is to assign tickets to different employees based on the type of work they do. Maximo allows employees to choose from a wide range of applications.

Pros

Maximo is one of IBM's masterpieces, with true comprehensiveness to manage enterprise assets. It is powerful and versatile, and it's easy to use. It's by far the only end-to-end asset management software on the market. It can serve as a centralized database for your equipment, and it will help monitor and manage your assets. If you have a lot of equipment, Maximo is the way to go. It can help you keep track of everything, and it has all of the tools you need for managing, maintaining, and servicing your equipment.

Cons

I find the product's ease of use to be its best feature and also the most frustrating. The user interface is confusing when attempting to learn how the program functions; modules have similar features, but not all of them are intuitive. I switch between browsers depending on which one works best for different tasks.

Asset Management, Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance in a single tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

The IBM Maximo system is one of the best software that I have used. It has made countless tasks easier. There are many reports that can be customized to the needs of the company. The reports can be used to make decisions to help improve productivity and quality of service while keeping up with maintenance and failure predictions to prevent any previous failures from happening again in the future with the detailed in-depth historical reports.

Pros

I have been using Maximo for about 2 years and have been very happy with the ease of use and the reports it generates. I have been using Maximo to track our equipment and work order requests. I have found the maintenance history reports to be helpful in predicting equipment failure. I also use it to track employee time and generate reports on individual employee work habits. It would be nice if it could compare time worked from day to day, but it does not so far.

Cons

Maximo has many features that can be useful to businesses, but it may also be confusing for some users. The software is expensive, and much of its cost may be due to its advanced feature set.

Best in class EAM

Reviewed 6 years ago

Maximo is a very complex system that can be configured to your exact needs. While there is some upfront learning curve, once you get the hang of it, you're only limited by your imagination as to what you can solve with Maximo. We've tracked everything from people, to refrigerant, to timecards, to schematics, and so much more.

Pros

Maximo can do EVERYTHING. And if it can't, you have the tools within the product to build it. Maximo has a multitude of add-ons, industry solutions, etc. that add functionality to meet the needs of nearly any industry or use case. We've been implementing Maximo at clients of all sizes for years now and never had to tell a customer "No, it can't do that".

Cons

The only drawback for some customers is license pricing. Compared to the rest of the market, IBM is in the higher end, but you get what you pay for and much more with Maximo! Also, IBM's COTS mobile solutions to interface with Maximo are a little lacking, but there are a multitude of 3rd party solutions that will work even better.

Great for inventory management

Reviewed 5 years ago

The maintenance branch of my company uses Maximo to keep track of our warehouses inventory and help fulfill janitorial orders to all the buildings on campus.

Pros

Maximo is very organized and highly customizable. It excels at inventory management. It's also very easy to learn, I can teach new workers the basics of how to use it for the uses they need it for in a short amount of time.

Cons

Since it is self hosted, there are times that it can be slow because of server problems or heavy use. Make sure you're running Maximo on a server that's powerful enough for your use.
