Ashcom Technologies Launches MaintiMizer BlackBox™


Ann Arbor, Michigan (November 1, 2010) – Ashcom Technologies, Inc., announces the launch of MaintiMizer BlackBox™, a “plug and play” version of its popular MaintiMizer™ Web-based computerized maintenance management system (CMMS).

Don’t let it’s small size fool you, MaintiMizer BlackBox™ takes up less space on your desk than a standard lunch box, but packs a powerful punch that is sure to get your maintenance costs under control, while improving quality, and increasing productivity. MaintiMizer BlackBox™ gives you options so no matter your situation, it will work for you. Choose to connect the self-contained unit to your network and/or to the internet via hard-wired Ethernet cable or wirelessly. The simplicity of the system eliminates the need to have an IT specialist on site, and if you need help, Ashcom’s technical support specialists are there for you! Implementing such a comprehensive solution has never been easier! MaintiMizer BlackBox™ comes with MaintiMizer™, Microsoft SQL Express, Web server pre-installed and pre-configured and features a redundant hard drive and built-in backup to a USB memory stick.

Timothy Good, president of Ashcom, explains the idea behind MaintiMizer BlackBox™; “We’ve spoken to many small and mid-sized organizations that have told us they’d like to use MaintiMizer™, but that they simply don’t have the staff available to install, configure, and maintain the system. MaintiMizer BlackBox™ eliminates that hurdle—anyone, no matter what their level of computer experience, can simply plug in this self-contained appliance and be off and running in minutes. And because we’ve built remote access into the system, our staff of maintenance management experts will handle all updates and any necessary troubleshooting. We’ve designed MaintiMizer BlackBox™ to be accessible and affordable ‘computerized maintenance management to go’ for companies of all sizes.”

MaintiMizer BlackBox™ has all the functionality of the MaintiMizer™ Web-based CMMS, including work order, preventive maintenance/equipment, inventory, vendor/purchase order, timecard, and utility modules. Each module opens to a “dashboard” screen, allowing users to see critical information at a glance. All MaintiMizer™ systems are designed to be easy to learn and easy to use, even for people with little or no computer experience.

Good concludes, “Every company, no matter what its size, needs to proactively manage its operations to save money and improve productivity, particularly in this economy. With MaintiMizer BlackBox™, any organization can enjoy the bottom-line benefits that come from using a CMMS.”
