Product Description

With this data, it also enables near real-time visibility into asset usage across multiple sites, extends the useful life of equipment, improves return on assets and defers new purchases.

What do you like best?

The Commodity Groups and Codes in the Item Master application provides a way for us to analyze spending by product type (based on Commodity), it can also be used to generate an accurate report to the management. While the Item Classifications and Attributes can be used to accommodate the technical specification of items and to identify similar object. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Customization is sometimes required but can be done. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

In order to maximize the functionality of the system, I highly recommend that during the implementation, the Material Classification with their Attributes and the Commodity Groups and Codes are also implemented, it is required a good data preparation (to prevent “garbage-in, garbage-out”), but also end up with an excellent result. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By properly implementing the Material Classification with their Attributes in the Item Master application and also by utilizing the right Commodity Groups and Codes, I realized that we have actually improve the functionality of the system, easy to filter/search for items and easy to manage our Items which is required to support the Maintenance activities.

What do you like best?

Capable and has amazing industry verticals which set Maximo apart from all competitors. The addition of HSE manager was a great value and the recent Supply Chain functionalities enhancement were spot on. Overall, when it comes to having an out of the box product with deep industry understanding, Maximo is the way to go. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The product lacks standards business processes, just like SAP, Maximo must ship with standard business process. Stressing on the same point, I'd rather spend time and money understanding the standard business process and using it as a starting point than having the absolute freedom to create whatever because this is where "replicating legacy systems" starts Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Maximo is a very complex system that can be configured to your exact needs. While there is some upfront learning curve, once you get the hang of it, you're only limited by your imagination as to what you can solve with Maximo. We've tracked everything from people, to refrigerant, to timecards, to schematics, and so much more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Maximo is not user friendly. Most of the screens has lots of fields which are all not used. It requires many training sessions for the users to start using Maxio Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Maximo does everything we need it to. I like how it does everything that our business partners want it to, and how it integrates with multiple systems of ours. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I'd love to see it scale a bit better. Maximo can be deployed to multiple servers, but I'd really love to see a Docker implementation. It comes with a SOAP service, but a REST service would also be better. Maybe this is around in future versions, but it seems absent in 8.5.

The future is here, and we're anxious to see somethig faster and more scaleable. I hope to see what the future holds at Think. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Maximo has significantly improved work management for our field employees and compliance. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We have been unable to get Maximo Anywhere and Maximo Spatial working. We had made some strides in getting Spatial working, but then that got broken with a Maximo update to the product. IBM doesn't seem to support the Anywhere and Spatial products like they do the main Maximo product. Currently bugs in both products are delaying/preventing a rollout.

Maximo now has a Cognos offering, but little is shared about how that can be integrated with our existing Cognos implementation. In fact, I have been unable to get information from Maximo, and the Cognos team differs to the Maximo team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Work managemenet for all of the field employees. Simplified and streamline entry of Safety, Security and Pipeline events. streamlined management of the company's fleet; Improved maintenance of our Compressor stations. We would like to further enable the field with mobility and access to our GIS/PODS data, but the Anywhere and Spatial products are not working. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Maximo has helped enable our business to have an all-in-one solution for Asset Management and Tools Calibration. Similarly, Maximo is one of the few (if not the only) EAM system which is compliant with the FDA 21 Part 11 (electronic records and digital signatures). Coming from a medical device industry, this has been paramount for us. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In order to fully tap into all of the capabilities Maximo offers, you need to add various other "bolt-ons" or additional solutions offered by IBM. Would really like to see these included in the base Maximo offering. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
