What is the difference between computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) and EAM?

If you need to manage preventive and even predictive maintenance and ensure the required service work is performed, you need an Enterprise Asset Management solution.

If you need that in a highly serialized, risk-intensive environment, or through high volume service calls, you need help from IFS. IFS Applications got its start in service management and CMMS software in the nuclear power industry, perhaps the most complex and risk-intensive of maintenance settings. We later extended that footprint to enterprise asset management (EAM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP). And even today, IFS gives you best-in-class functionality for complex maintenance management, maintenance repair and overhaul (MRO), field service management, reverse logistics and more. All with as much embedded enterprise functionality as you need. That’s EAM.
