Stop wasting money on unused inventory

The hardest part of inventory control is keeping accurate levels. But once you can trust your numbers, it’s a lot easier to know how much you need and when you need it. Hippo CMMS makes tracking inventory easy. Associate parts and materials with work orders, and the software updates the levels as soon as the tech closes out. And with customizable par levels, you get automatically alerted when it’s time to order more.

Spend less keeping assets online

Save time, money, and frustration with a solid, trackable preventive maintenance schedule packed with usage- and time-based inspections and tasks. When you’re finding little issues sooner, it costs a lot less for you to make small fixes. PMs also help extend asset life cycles, which means you get the maximum value from assets and equipment.

Cut inefficiencies from workflows

Boost tech’s efficiency by cutting the amount of time they’re running around in circles picking up and dropping off paper work orders, hunting for parts without even knowing if they’re in stock or not, and chasing down other techs asking for help. With Hippo’s mobile maintenance app, they have everything they need to work fast right at their fingertips. They can check and access new work orders, review associated parts and materials, and upload task and work order comments – all right from any connected device.

Prevent critical knowledge from escaping

Did someone lose the OEM manual for a critical asset, but no one’s worried because a few techs know all the SOPs by heart? What happens when they transfer or retire? Protect yourself and the department by building out work order and PM templates. Keep all that insider’s knowledge safe and accessible in easy-to-add checklists and instructions.

Never fall out of compliance

You’ve done the work to keep the city compliant, but can you prove it? Hippo gives you an always-connected database of all your equipment inspections and tasks. New work is instantly reflected in the data, so when it’s time for an audit, Hippo helps you prove you did the right work.

Shine a light on your team’s value

Preventive maintenance saves you money in two ways. One, it simply costs less to find and fix small issues than trying to tackle big problems. Checking the oil is always going to be cheaper than replacing a seized engine. In fact, reactive work orders can cost you 37% more than PMs.

But PMs also save you from costly downtime and lost productivity.

Government CMMS Software for Public
Work and Municipalities

Public Works CMMS Software

Covering everything from hospital buildings to water treatment centers, public works include all the infrastructure your city needs to support both its people and businesses.

Hippo CMMS is the solution you need to schedule work and track progress.

Municipalities CMMS Software

Municipalities might have a reputation for being smaller than cities, but the demands are just as pressing. If they want thriving communities, local governments must deliver quality, reliable services. Hippo makes it possible by streamlining and strengthening workflows that keep infrastructure online.

Government Maintenance & Repair

New York is “the city that never sleeps,” but you know from direct experience in maintenance that, in fact, no city anywhere every really sleeps. And with an endless and every-growing list of maintenance tasks and on-demand repairs, trying to manage it all with paper or spreadsheets is impossible. Hippo delivers the scheduling tools you need to stay on top of maintenance and efficiently tackle on-demand repairs.

Government Inventory Management

Tracking all the inventory in one warehouse or location is a headache when you’re stuck using paper and spreadsheets, but it’s basically impossible when you have to control inventory across different facilities. Hippo makes it not only possible but easy by letting you automate critical steps, ensuring your data stays accurate and up to date. And as soon as you start running low, Hippo’s inventory management software sends you an alert so you can organize and send purchase orders directly from inside the software.

Now you know what you have and where it is.

Government Vendor Management

The maintenance department does a ton, but it can’t do it all.

Hippo makes it simple by storing all your vendor contacts and then helping you send work orders right from inside the software.

Hippo helps you not only organize but also prioritize work orders fast with simple, powerful drag-and-drop features. Get the right work done, in the right order.

And because the whole system lives in the cloud, you can do everything from anywhere.

The way Hippo CMMS allows us to streamline our maintenance requests and work orders has been huge in saving us time and manpower to complete our tasks. Our maintenance technicians receive prompt e-mail notifications when a work order has been submitted and that allows us to get a jump on things much quicker than we normally would.
