Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) - today announced Advanced Vacuum Company, Inc., (a.k.a. ADVACO) has deployed SaaSMaint CMMS / EAM to automate maintenance reminders and reporting for its field teams servicing large clients. With SaaSMaint CMMS / EAM, ADVACO’s field teams have realized a significant reduction in administrative time, expediting maintenance workflow for clients with thousands of pieces of ADVACO-maintained equipment.

“Companies that perform equipment maintenance-especially those serving customers with very large inventories-are challenged in this economy to keep maintenance plans affordable and profitable,” said Mike Edwards, founder, “With SaaSMaint CMMS / EAM, companies keep their field service teams off the computer and on the job, tremendously increasing productivity while reducing labor expense.”

ADVACO needed a maintenance automation solution that would be easily accessible by all technicians, could generate accurate, in-depth reports, and was capable of logging daily technician activity for both corrective and preventive maintenance (PM). The firm wanted to leverage its existing investment with a solution whose infrastructure supported customizations and tight integration into Salesforce CRM.

“With thousands of pieces of equipment it wasn’t feasible for technicians to enter preventive maintenance orders manually,” said Mike West, ADVACO’s Director of Subfab Engineering. “SaaSMaint increases productivity significantly because it frees our technicians to do their work. We had a really defined focus on what features we needed, and SaaSMaint had exactly what our guys were looking for.”

SaaSMaint’s reporting features added a layer of functionality beyond what ADVACO expected from the solution. “With the information SaaSMaint gathers, I can easily calculate performance metrics such as man hours spent on equipment and mean repair time, so customers see the reliability value. Our customers want to know how many hours of availability or percentage of total time their equipment was available,” said West.

About is a privately held company with deep domain expertise in Enterprise Asset Management. SaaSMaint CMMS/EAM is a native application, benefiting from the reliability, scalability and performance of’s trusted enterprise cloud computing platform.
