What is a Web Based CMMS?

web based CMMSBrowser or web based CMMS systems are becoming widely available because of their cost effectiveness when compared with locally installed systems. For a low monthly fee you can have an enterprise asset management system with all the features that are normally available in top tier CMMS software systems.


The vendors of these web based systems offer you a full service that is available through any web browser meaning that your staff can have access to it anywhere there is an Internet connection. This makes it ideal for sites that have more than one location, companies with mobile service engineers or single sites who need a quick and well supported implementation.

Some of the more complex locally installed CMMS systems require lots of local IT support. The cost of installing and implementing the system is increased by the IT section overhead. There will also be ongoing IT support required.

SaaS (rented) CMMS software has none of these overheads. The software is set up, maintained and backed up for you by the CMMS vendor. Everything is taken care of. All you have to do is enter your user ID and password and you are off and running. You can have a fully installed and working CMMS system within a day of signing up.

Directline is available to hire on a monthly basis without any requirement for a long term contract. This means that it is very easy for you to quit at any time. Your CMMS application service provider therefore has a vested interest in ensuring that you are provided with full support. Clearly they want to retain you as a customer so they will ensure that the service provided is good as they can provide.
