Perspective CMMS, a maintenance management consultancy based in Scotland, has recently launched an innovative new "audit by email" service for maintenance departments. The audit is intended to assist companies who are wilting within the worldwide waffle of CMMS vendors. Clients receive a comprehensive survey form by email. Currently available in two versions, for facilities and manufacturing maintenance, the form includes detailed notes that assist in its completion. Unlimited email help is available throughout the process although the form has been designed such that this is seldom required. For a small fee maintenance managers can now sit back and let Perspective recommend a single vendor or, if they choose, a field of three or four "contenders".
