Advantages of Cloud CMMS 

The advantages of computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) software are well-documented in thousands of maintenance books and Internet articles. Some of the benefits of Momenta cloud-based CMMS over traditional on-premise systems are described below.

CMMS Cloud software continues to make headlines as the next evolution of the software industry. Faster Internet speeds, cheaper database storage and the dawn of the smartphone and tablet era have made cloud-based software delivered over the Internet a viable option.

Momenta Cloud CMMS offers the same level of functionality as traditional on-premise systems but with a number of additional benefits.

1) Faster Setup

With Momenta cloud CMMS software, you can be up and running in 60 seconds. Once you register, you receive instant access to your CMMS. No time is wasted waiting for a CD to arrive, configuring hardware, installing the software, etc. It is all done automatically with cloud CMMS.

2) No IT-related Costs

Momenta Cloud CMMS software is hosted on our servers so there are no costs relating to server hardware and maintenance, operating system licensing, network configuration or information technology (IT) support. You make use of your existing IT infrastructure such as computers, tablets and mobile phones.

3) Access Anywhere

Momenta Cloud CMMS can be accessed from any Internet connection anywhere in the world. There is no need to configure firewalls and grant access to certain Internet protocol (IP) addresses when users are at home or on the road.

4) Mobile

Mobile technology is changing the way businesses work today. Tablets and smartphones are the must-have business accessory as they increase efficiency and productivity like never before. That means spending less time in front of the computer and more time on the front lines. This is great news for maintenance technicians who need instant access to their Momenta Cloud CMMS in the field as they complete their work. Momenta Cloud CMMS mobile apps can be accessed on any mobile device, so no expensive handheld hardware is required.

5) Weekly System Updates

Keeping your software up to date is crucial. Software updates offer new features, improvements and workflows that continually increase your efficiency. Upgrades also introduce patches, fixes and security updates that address any bugs in the system. With Momenta Cloud CMMS software, updates are included in the subscription and occur automatically every weekend so you always have the latest version of the Momenta Cloud CMMS at no additional cost.

6) Managed Database

With on-premise software, you must back up your database to another server at regular intervals or risk losing all your important CMMS data if your hard drive fails on your server or computer. This includes all your asset and work-order history. With Momenta Cloud CMMS software, managed backups are included in the subscription price. Momenta Cloud CMMS store the data on redundant servers in multiple locations, protecting you from hardware failures and even natural disasters. Momenta promises more than 99-percent up-time so you can be sure your Momenta Cloud CMMS will be available when you need it.

7) Database Security

This is the responsibility of Momenta. We are responsible for data protection, anti-virus updates, secure logins and data encryption. This gives you peace of mind knowing your data is safe.

8) 24/7 Monitoring

With on-premise CMMS software, if the server goes down, you must wait until your IT guy can get it running again. If this happens over the weekend, the CMMS could be down for hours at a time. Momenta Cloud CMMS applications reside on servers that are monitored around the clock. The servers are co-located in facilities that house other Internet applications, so the costs of monitoring is entirely ours.
