Viva EAM! The future of enterprise asset management is centralized

3 minutes

The EAM market is evolving, driven by an emphasis on cost savings, maintenance strategy, digital system amalgamation and sustainability.

If you need a primer, enterprise asset management (EAM) is a way to manage physical assets by understanding the full lifecycle of each asset within your operational ecosystem. Part strategic asset management, part preventive and proactive maintenance, EAM shines a light on the big picture so you can make smarter data-driven decisions about repair, longevity and lifecycles.

Right now, the top trends in EAM are where mobile and wearable functionality, rapid implementations and analytics for predictive maintenance strategies converge.

For operations managers in organizations with multiple facilities, you likely have a lot on your plate. From keeping tabs on the inner workings of each building to managing the day-to-day of the employees on your team, it’s a long list of responsibilities to ensure that the lights stay on and nothing gets in the way of the business.

On top of maintaining facilities, you need a system in place that can make sense of tasks, workflows, inventory, and your employees. If you’re doing this on paper, you might be missing out on optimization opportunities for your staff or the greater business.

Though slow to join the party, many organizations are starting to see the light in regard to their asset management.

So, what exactly is being illuminated?

This must be the (main) place 

The term “digital transformation” might feel a bit intimidating, or for operations professionals, unnecessary — but hear us out. Technology will never replace the human element that is the heart of many organizations, but it can help drive efficiency, productivity and cost-savings.

Who doesn’t like to get stuff done faster and save money?

There is already a ton of data at your fingertips: the machines you maintain are at various stages in their lifespans. The workers you oversee have varying degrees of tasks, talents or capabilities. Buildings, well, you know they’re just oozing information from everything from electricity usage to occupancy.

With an EAM solution, you can capture data from the people, processes and machines that you already have. When you gather all that info into a centralized location, you can gain insight into the state of your assets, enhance the productivity of your employees and help your business identify opportunities to save time and money.
