CRL 1-hr: 9/26 Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

Bigfoot CMMS will now be available in two editions, Bigfoot CMMS Enterprise and Bigfoot CMMS Enterprise+, which is designed for multi-site environments with more complex requirements. The maintenance management solution also boasts a number of new features across both editions.

The streamlined user interface matches how users view, scan, and interact with computer screens of any size, including smartphones, tablets, and iPads. The fluid, vertical-scrolling design of Bigfoot CMMS’ user interface allows users to access all functions by scrolling down a single page, thereby eliminating the need to jump from tab-to-tab to access essential data. This design, undertaken as part of the software developer’s quest to produce intuitive, “Quick to Learn” maintenance solutions for “Quick Results,” will further increase a user’s efficiency as she spends less time training and navigating the software, and more time fulfilling work orders, making emergency repairs, and otherwise getting machinery back online.

A dashboard screen of the new Bigfoot CMMS Enterprise, by Smartware Group, allows users to configure charts and graphs based on personal or departmental goals and KPIs.

“The new Bigfoot editions are game-changers for our industry, as they far surpass the traditional user experience provided by typical CMMS solutions,” said Paul Lachance, President and CTO of Smartware Group. “By combining radical ease of use with the latest maintenance management functionality, we are bringing our mission to fruition. The result is a CMMS solution that truly stands out among the rest.”

Less Keystrokes, More Power

Both Bigfoot Enterprise and Enterprise+ model a maintenance department’s work flow in a simplified manner, thus reducing the number of keystrokes and clicks needed for myriad functions, such as entering equipment data, creating work orders, generating a preventive maintenance (PM) calendar, and managing spare parts inventory. For instance, with one click, users can access a PM calendar showing the entire estimated workload for the day, including PM tasks, non-PMs (unscheduled events and repairs) and work orders. And it takes only three clicks to fill out a work order, mark its priority, issue a cause code and save it.


View your preventive maintenance items (PMs) on a daily, weekly (as shown here), monthly, quarterly, or annual basis - or simply combine dates to create your own unique view within Bigfoot CMMs Enterprise or Enterprise+.

“If someone has to spend 30 minutes inputting or searching for data in a CMMS instead of using that time to repair a machine and get it up and running, productivity suffers,” Lachance said. “And our goal, as always, is to enhance productivity - which is why we made sure our new user interface eliminates complicated procedures and condenses Bigfoot down to what users really need to get their hands on quickly.”

Underneath the new Bigfoot design lies a host of cutting-edge features. Location-based work orders give users the ability to manage work orders by both an asset and a site. Users can also tap into a new parts inventory to show one part in multiple locations and the quantity of each on hand at each location. Document management has been enhanced so users can set up an asset maintenance media library and create files for spreadsheets, illustrations, videos, and other applications. And with improved multi-site management, users are able to shut down a specific site for a set period of time.


Link your sites, assets, and personnel with your incidents, safety programs, and audit/inspection programs in one maintenance system. Bigfoot’s logging capabilities track user edits, dates, and times for total compliance management.


Bigfoot CMMS Enterprise and Enterprise+ also enable users to enter asset data with the same nomenclature their organization uses to refer to specialized equipment, as opposed to limited generic terms dictated by a typical CMMS. Users can preset data views to check on corrective and preventive maintenance alerts, and toggle back and forth between these views - without having to customize the program. Other new configuration capabilities include the user creation of drop-down lists of specific fields for work orders, rather than relying on standard, non-configurable forms across the enterprise.

This release of Bigfoot CMMS Enterprise and Enterprise+ coincides with the redesign of the Smartware Group website, www.bigfootcmms.com. Visit the newly-updated site for more information about Bigfoot CMMS, and contact sales@bigfootcmms.com to see a demonstration today.
