Bigfoot CMMS works well as an enterprise solution for manufacturers, distributors, energy and utilities organizations, data centers, and mining companies.
Finding what has already been completed has proven to be a difficult task. it wants to do too much. it is large and cumbersome. we don't even use a significant portion of it. Often runs slow. (spinning orange circle of doom) some updates in 2016 have been beneficial, like choosing more than one user to filter by.
if I had to pick something, I guess it would be that you could be everything under the sun in here
when I want to look at training (OSH programs) and I sort by date. it takes the first digits (month) not year. This would be only relevant if all my programs were one year. The programs are over the span of years so, like a lot of this program, it's not very helpful.
Melissa, we appreciate your feedback. We are happy to assist you with optimizing the performance of your ALTUM application and maximizing the benefits of the software to meet your specific maintenance and operational needs. There are a number of training options available with Smartware Group, and we are happy to discuss these options as well as available consulting services. We can have your Account Manager get in touch with you for details; otherwise, feel free to contact email@example.com at any time.
CMMS is really about asset management. At the very core of a CMMS is the Asset Registry. Repair materials, organic resources, contractors, scheduling components....virtually all other elements of the CMMS exist to organize and administer to the assets. The unique features and high degree of configurational control found in Bigfoot make it the smartest choice for Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) I have ever worked with.
Many CMMS are cloud based, and many also work with mobile devices. However, Bigfoot's approach to mobile devices and the cloud is a mobile "app" that sets it apart from every other CMMS. The Bigfoot mobile app gives greater functionality without an internet connection than every other CMMS I evaluated by far!
In this age of "Software As A Service" (SAAS) and cloud computing, service after the sale becomes extremely important. If there are language barriers or time zone differences that interfere with problem resolution, your plant maintenance may suffer for it. Bigfoot's approach to support is to assign a "Customer Success Manager" to each account. Our Customer Success Manager takes an active role in ensuring their technical services department gives us the caliber of support we deserve. They also go to great lengths to ensure we understand how to properly use the CMMS.
CMMS costs vary almost as greatly as the number of CMMS available. Bigfoot's pricing comes in at the lower/midpoint of the CMMS cost scale. This will ultimately mean our business will do a "feature rich" CMMS implementation for less than half the cost of some other CMMS suites.
Bigfoot's greatest feature is its configurational control. In the real world, there is no such thing as a perfect implementation any tweaks/adjustments that need to be made after the "go live" event are easily accomplished. Combine it's configurability with the world class reporting capability (again delivered at a very reasonable price point) and you find yourself looking at a very cost effective CMMS!
OSH Module and HIGH degree of configurability!
Repairable Material Items management needs more work.
Many thanks, Wayne! We appreciate your thorough assessment!
The setup is relatively easy.
Leaving it at work when I go home. Truthfully, it is not that bad but I am certainly left with a less than expected product. Now would be difficult to dump my data for something else. Must wait for updates.
The con from the software group that they will help you with customization by giving you "Free" Consulting hours. Then when you go to them with something simple, they say they have no interest in pursuing it. And then deduct from you "Free Consulting Hours" Very sorry I purchased this software. Now I feel as though I am stranded on an island with a less than functional CMMS.
Has no concessions to tying and asset into a PO for purchasing and cost analysis for a particular asset. Software group was unwilling to help. Called and told me they were "Uninterested" in pursuing my request. In the same call they asked for license renewal. Stuck in a database that is now a waste of time after two years.
We have used Bigfoot for our CMMS needs for a number of years but not to its fullest capability. Recently we have made the decision as a corporation to improve our maintenance procedures and as a result our Bigfoot CMMS system is expected to play a major support role in changing our maintenance operations. Over the last few months we have been re-configuring the system and the Customer Support group has been very active in assisting us. When we call support there were two system professionals who have always been able to answer our questions and walk us through the necessary steps to accomplish our goals. Additionally, we have recommended some functionality upgrades to their Mobile App and you can tell that they listened to our requests and look to make these changes available in later releases. Smartware is a great company to do business with and Bigfoot is a great CMMS to meet our maintenance needs.
Easy of use
Speed, Limited functionality on the Mobile App
Your feedback is most welcome, Dan - we're happy to serve you!
This software helps to log data, record maintenance tasks, track all assets and parts, etc. I am still learning all the capabilities that Bigfoot CMMS has to offer. I will say that when I get stuck and can't navigate the program through the help feature, the customer service team is quick and eager to lend a hand. Overall I am very pleased with the features that Bigfoot supplies to us.
The software makes it easy to record all maintenance tasks and keep track of anything done on equipment. It also helps control the parts inventory.
The speed of the software when navigating the pages is the biggest bottleneck in the flow of using the system. I also struggle navigating the pages, you must be exact on what numbers or titles you search for.
