SMGlobal has released FastMaint CMMS v. 5.3, a powerful software application that makes it easy to manage plant maintenance, facility and building maintenance, resort and restaurant maintenance, and fleet maintenance. Solutions are available for use on a single Windows computer and on a LAN, as well as a web edition that need not be installed on each computer in the company because it can be accessed using a standard web browser.

FastMaint CMMS reduces the expenses associated with equipment and facility downtime. When an unexpected situation arises, the software makes it easy to create a work order, allocate resources, assign it to the proper person, and track progress. In addition, it’s simple to set up a preventive maintenance schedule for all of your equipment, vehicles, and facilities. By moving your support staff from fire-fighting mode to maintenance management mode, FastMaint CMMS saves time and money.

Version 5.3 introduces major enhancements to the reporting system. Bar charts and line charts are easier to read, and new work order analysis reports make it simpler to manage breakdowns versus planned maintenance activities. It’s even easier to clone equipment, parts, people, vendors, and other maintenance-related entities, allowing users to speed their way through data-entry.

The software turns maintenance chaos into order. Each time there is a maintenance problem, FastMaint CMMS turns the maintenance task into a template for a work order. You can identify and classify a set of standard maintenance practices for all of your equipment and buildings.


FastMaint CMMS Basic Edition lets you create templates for unplanned and scheduled maintenance work orders. All maintenance tasks can be scheduled automatically. There is a complete work order database system, with custom fields to fit every business, status tracking, job cost reviews, and inventory tracking and reordering. You can track vendors as well as equipment and assets.

FastMaint CMMS Standard Edition supports purchase order creation and printing, as well as bar-code processing. It also removes the Basic Edition’s limitation of a maximum of 40 maintenance task templates and 40 equipment and location definitions. The Professional Edition includes multi-user and network support, and the choice of SQL Server or Access database support. FastMaint CMMS Web provides the Professional Edition functionality, with all processing accessible using an ordinary web browser.
