The Hardcat Preventative Maintenance software is used worldwide to maintain all types of operational equipment, assemblies and their components, typically by Location / Project / Parent-Child / Product-Type / and Equipment-Type. It makes for a crucial component of your asset management solution.
Behind the Preventative Maintenance module sits a very large, scalable database that can manage hundreds of thousands of individual items of equipment. Hardcat handles the through-life history of the asset from inception through to disposal.
The Preventative Maintenance module allows the complete tracking of planned and reactive activity against an asset as well as the time and cost of maintaining the asset base. The user has the ability to look at past, current and future maintenance plans for an asset, or groups of assets.
The Maintenance Module allows users to set up common tasks or templates and automatically create scheduled Work Orders, both recurring and one-off. Work Orders can be triggered by Date or Unit information, or a combination of both. Ad-hoc Work Orders can also be actioned. Imminent or Overdue Work Orders can automatically be flagged by email to the appropriate parties.
