Easy to maintain

Manage your maintenance tasks with this useful program.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and any business concerned with its bottom line takes this to heart in the form of preventative maintenance. Whether you're using computers, vehicles, or other kinds of machinery, following a regular maintenance schedule can prevent future problems and save serious money. PM Master is an easy-to-use program that helps schedule and assign maintenance tasks, ensuring that these important jobs get done when they're supposed to.

The program's interface is utilitarian and easy to navigate, with clearly labeled buttons and menus across the top. The program supports the use of multiple databases, allowing you to keep tasks in different departments separate. We found it easy to add new equipment, employees, and maintenance types and then create tasks with them. For each task, you can set a request date, a scheduled start date and time, and a scheduled end date and time. There's also space within each task to list particular steps or components of the task and to track needed materials and their costs. Recurring tasks can be automatically generated, saving the trouble of creating them from scratch each time. You can create both desktop and e-mail alerts for tasks that are due, and PM Master also lets you create work orders with ease. A built-in Help file provides a basic overview of the program's features. Overall, we found PM Master to be an intuitive and powerful tool, and we recommend it to anyone who needs a better way to manage maintenance tasks.

PM Master installs and uninstalls without issues.
