Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS)

CMMS Built for Construction

As a contractor, you know that regular equipment maintenance is paramount to project safety, efficiency and budget. But, keeping up with preventative maintenance schedules, work orders, inventory location, as well as your mechanics’ workloads is no easy task. So how do you balance the cost and time of care with the risk of equipment failure and downtime?

Tenna’s CMMS software is designed by contractors for contractors to simplify and streamline your construction maintenance operations for:

  • Lowering operating costs
  • Easy scheduling of preventative maintenance
  • Safer sites
  • Less vehicle and equipment downtime
  • Prolonged equipment lifespan

How CMMS Software Works

Tenna’s CMMS makes construction equipment maintenance easier, putting control directly in your hands with the Tenna App. Seamlessly schedule equipment maintenance, locate parts, track mechanic time, submit work orders and more – all from the field. Tenna’s CMMS offers not only efficiency and convenience but also major cost savings by digitalizing maintenance management.

Maintenance Requests

Schedule equipment maintenance tasks or requests right from your Tenna app, using voice memos, text notes and on-the-go submission capabilities. Easily track the status of your maintenance tasks with detailed, up-to-date data at the asset level. Maintenance requests help you prioritize workloads and resources more efficiently.

Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance schedules are not one-size-fits-all. That’s why Tenna enables you to customize recurrences based on equipment hours, equipment miles, days, or specific dates. The Tenna app will alert mechanics and equipment personnel when service is almost due, so your team stays on top of preventative maintenance schedules and keeps tools in working order. Tenna will then automatically create maintenance requests for individual services when they are due.

Work Orders

Tenna’s CMMS allows for seamless communication between shop and field. Create and assign work orders wherever you are, monitor the progress of individual assets, and document parts and labor associated with your repairs and services. Plus, you can capture equipment repairs with photos and even complete customized inspection checklists in the Tenna app for additional detail and documentation.

Fault Codes

Easily convert Fault Codes into actionable maintenance requests with one click.

Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)

Tenna’s software system collects diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) from your vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) through your GPS tracking device. Improve your understanding of why construction equipment is having issues and clearly communicate repair needs and timelines to the shop. Easily convert DTCs into actionable maintenance requests with one click.

Parts Management

Spend less time identifying and searching for required parts and inventory with Tenna’s parts catalog and inventory management. Our CMMS helps contractors efficiently schedule preventative maintenance based on part availability to minimize downtime, and provides control over inventory issues that can delay projects.

Start monitoring part spend and usage more efficiently. Tenna enriches your asset catalog with maintenance and repair data to help you easily track the lifespan, warranty and value of your equipment assets and the parts that go into them over time.

Mechanic Time Cards

The Mechanic Time Card solution will allow mechanics to easily capture their time against sites, assets, work orders, and maintenance requests. Mechanic Time Cards improve efficiency, track employee productivity, and streamline the payroll process. You can customize time cards for your whole team with different approval levels, categories and billing rates.

Organize and track all the different types of work and hours logged. Tenna records labor hours under individual costs and can easily produce reports, exports or enable APIs to get the data to enable payroll systems or workflows.

Cost Codes

Tenna’s CMMS allows you to create and assign cost codes to your construction maintenance data for full transparency into time and money spent on repairs and damages. Custom built for each client; cost codes are flexible by design. Contractors can choose how they want to report on costs and easily track spending against labor and parts or other miscellaneous costs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a CMMS?

A CMMS is software that manages the maintenance of assets. Tenna’s construction CMMS is designed for contractors to easily manage scheduling and tracking of vehicle and heavy equipment maintenance. This helps reduce downtime, extend equipment lifespan, improve safety on sites, and lower operating costs.

What’s the difference between CMMS and ERP?
