5 Cross-location success stories

A key benefit of eMaint Computerized Maintenance Management System software is how it organizes assets by building, campus, and global locations.

Cross-location asset management refers to assets set up in multiple places—near or far.

One of the benefits of using eMaint computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software is cross-location asset management. Within eMaint, users can gain visibility to assets across the campus, city, country, or even the globe. Enabling cross-location visibility means maintenance and reliability teams get a better understanding of asset issues without having to be on site.

In organizations where cross-location is an issue, mobile-enabled solutions such as eMaint CMMS help workers to stay productive while on the go or across sites.
