CMMS Software Demos & Selection Advice

Low cost CMMS linkPerspective CMMS is an independent consultancy where you can get free advice, comparisons and demos of CMMS Software.

We assist Maintenance Managers and Supervisors and those responsible for maintenance management to find, compare and review CAFM and CMMS software and offer several low cost software options to buy online.

This website is a resource for you on all things CMMS. We also have a sister website at that you can also visit. This is dedicated to a particular CMMS system.

We have found that most of our website visitors are in one of three groups, those who are actively seeking CMMS software, those who are just seeking CMMS information and those who are seeking Maintenance Training Materials.

We can help you to make the right decisions on what plant and planned maintenance software is best for your plant or facility. If you are involved in a CMMS implementation project contact us for advice and assistance with software selection, comparison review and evaluation.

We provide useful information on CAFM for Facilities Management and Computerized Maintenance Management Software, which is used to control equipment maintenance in manufacturing plants and commercial facilities.

Advice and How to Compare and Select Planned Maintenance Software Applications

We feature low cost systems for small and medium enterprises. We don't deal in Maximo, Datastream or other high cost enterprise applications.

Our affiliated site provides information on EAM and ERP software requirements specification and reviewing.

Note: The categorised menu system we have provided below should help you to find the software selection information you require but please contact us if you have any questions.

In the Asset Management market place, software system selection is a minefield. If you are looking for a maintenance system we can help you survey your planned maintenance software requirements and find the package that matches YOUR needs.

Featured Vendors

Are you a CMMS or CAFM vendor? Would you like to advertise on this website?

It's likely that we can also save you money in doing so. High cost systems like Maximo CMMS are fine for those who can afford them but lower cost applications are often more suitable than Maximo.

However, the market place has been flooded with so many of these applications that making a choice is extremely difficult - more confusing than ever. We offer direction on this. We can also save you money on your system costs by acting as your agent.
