eMaint Enterprises Wins Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Award

THINKstrategies announced today that eMaint Enterprises has been named the winner of the Best of SaaS Showplace (BoSS) Awards. This program is aimed at promoting the measurable business benefits delivered by today’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions.

The BoSS Awards are part of an ongoing THINKstrategies Cloud Computing Showplace campaign to recognize SaaS companies producing tangible business benefits for specific user organizations. These benefits can include increased sales, lower costs, higher customer satisfaction, faster operations and greater profitability.

eMaint is a leading provider of on-demand computerized maintenance management software (CMMS) solutions and was one of the first CMMS providers to develop a completely web-based “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS) model for more rapid implementation at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). eMaint’s client base consists of over 16000 users worldwide across 1000 sites ranging from small & medium sized organizations to Fortune 500 corporations including manufacturers, service providers, fleet operators, energy and utility companies, health care facilities, universities, municipalities, and facility and property managers.

An example of the measurable business benefits which can be derived from eMaint’s Cloud-based CMMS solution is Cardinal Glass which decreased equipment downtime from 15% to under 1% in a three-year period after implementing the eMaint X3 CMMS. Labor hours and overtime were also decreased by 43% and 60% respectively, resulting in 45% improvement in profits. The results were achieved by implementing a web-based maintenance management system that helped improve coordination, communications and planning between maintenance and production departments at their Buford, Georgia facility.

Based on this customer success story, eMaint has been named a Best of SaaS Showplace Award winner.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by THINKstrategies and the Cloud Showplace with the BoSS Award for the way our SaaS technology, X3 CMMS was able to deliver measurable results for our clients,” said Brian Samelson, CEO and President at eMaint. “We have been big advocates for cloud computing for many years now, being one the first CMMS companies to make our technology web-based over 12 years ago. We hope to continue our growth while serving companies with our SaaS solutions across all industries.”

“Reducing the cost of maintaining manufacturing facilities while retaining the quality of services is a key challenge for many companies,” stated Jeffrey M. Kaplan, the founder of the SaaS Showplace, which is a part of the Cloud Computing Showplace, and Managing Director of THINKstrategies, the strategic consulting firm which conceived and administers the Showplace. “eMaint’s Cloud-based CMMS solution enables users to achieve these objectives quickly and effectively.”
