Save time on your inspections

Preventive maintenance is all about finding and fixing issues before they grow into big problems. And at the heart of any good PM program is inspection management.

Hippo’s inspection management software helps you:

  • Standardize the inspection process
  • Stay compliant, avoid large fines
  • Stay safe and accident free
  • Stay ahead of the maintenance curve

Standardize Inspection1

Standardize the inspection process

With a formal schedule and process for inspections, you know techs are doing the job right, right on time. Instead of waiting for problems to be so big you can’t miss them, inspections help you put out future fires before there’s even any smoke.

Stay compliant, avoid large fines

Compliance generally has two equally important parts: doing the work and proving you did it. With Hippo inspection data management, you can easily collect all your inspections data, keeping it safe and searchable. It comes in handy when you need to prove compliance to avoid large fines.

Stay safe and accident free

Loose guardrails and fluid puddles under assets suggest problems with the assets. But they also pose serious safety risks for your crew. Proactively finding and fixing small issues does more than boost asset reliability. It also keeps everyone safe.

Stay ahead of the maintenance curve

Inspections help you not only find problems early but also choose the best solutions. Looking at earlier inspection notes, techs can find wear-and-tear trends that help them determine the best ways to maintain and repair assets. And when you find issues early on, you have the luxury of fixing them according to your own schedule.

Mobile Applications

Forget the old days of printing out endless copies of inspection sheets. With Hippo’s mobile app, techs have everything they need for comprehensive, quick-and-easy inspections right on their mobile device. And if they find anything, they can generate a new on-demand work order directly from inside the app.

Old maintenance methods are slow and prone to mistakes. Most of all, they’re frustrating. When techs have to do everything on paper, you’re always running the risk of losing critical data. One break in the paper chain leads to many problems down the line.

Modern CMMS keeps all your data in one safe, secure cloud-based database, where you can always access it – from anywhere. Strong workflows mean inspection data seamlessly contributes to better work orders and PMs.

Maintenance and Repair1

Maintenance & Repair

The best way to maintain and repair your assets and equipment is by making sure you’re doing all the work you need to without doing too much. Maintenance inspections are the perfect way to find issues early while never wasting time fixing what’s not broke.

Maintenance Tracking


Keep track of your inspections data is simple with Hippo CMMS. As soon as an asset fails, techs can start generating a new on-demand work order, including information about the inspection and why the asset failed. Data gets into the system right away, where it can help you track work and plan ahead.

Preventive Maintenance

When you’re doing everything on-demand, you’re always a bit behind, where everything takes more time and costs more money. Hippo’s inspection data management helps you get out ahead of maintenance. Now, instead of running around dealing with unscheduled downtime and rush deliveries for parts and materials, you have a systematic process for finding and fixing issues.

Resources bandwidth


Scheduling is impossible without a clear understanding of the required work and resources. How can you plan unless you know what needs to get done and who needs to do it? With maintenance inspections, you can find issues before they lead to unscheduled downtime, giving you the heads-up you need to make sure you have the right people and parts in place.

Enterprise Asset Management (EAM)

Cradle-to-grave asset management is only possible when you have a reliable way to collect data and then keep it safe and secure. With inspections, you’re always on top of your assets’ current condition, giving you a clear picture of future work, inventory, and costs. And because the whole organization can access all the asset data, you never have to worry about surprises hiding in other departments.

Work Orders

Maintenance inspections are a key part of both on-demand and PM work orders. During inspections, techs can generate new on-demand work orders as soon as they discover an issue. And for preventive maintenance, checklists are a critical part of the process, ensuring techs thoroughly and properly check assets for issues.

Vendor Management

How do you know it’s time to bring in specialized help? With regular inspections, you’re always on top of critical systems like electrical, plumbing, and fire suppression. As soon as techs find an issue, they can access vendor contact information and fire off a work order, all directly from inside Hippo.

Inventory Management

When everything is a rush delivery, inventory management gets expensive fast. Inspections as part of a full preventive maintenance program help you find issues early, giving you the time you need to bring in parts and materials. And when that MRO inventory starts to run low again, Hippo automatically sends you alerts. Get the parts you need, right when you need them.

I love that there is a minimal learning curve. I can limit abilities for each user but make changes as they learn and become more comfortable. I tell all new users, "Feel free to explore. You can not screw anything up.”. This allows them to be more confident and curious.

Hippo has been a great overall experience with our company. We recently implemented this at our food production plant and it has met all our needs. It is very user friendly which was a big part in making a decision. It helps us meet all FDA standards within regards of record keeping. I would recommend this program to another company.
