MEX Maintenance Review

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: MEX is already showing the business that we are top heavy with trades waiting around for break downs, with this information we now can plan more effectively by having trades onsite when required to carryout planned maintenance activities and not just be a breakdown team giving them more machine up-time.

Pros:

MEX is by far one of the best CMMS I've used so far in my career its functionality makes it an easy system to implement which intern gives eases of use to the end user (maintenance trades), Also regions is a great tool to setup multiple site locations across the business ensuring we have a standardised asset tree and control files,

Cons:

Mex today requires further development by giving you the ability to import rosters into your schedule which will give you better planning functionality

New user of MEX in a regional school

5.0 8 months ago

Comments: Outstanding in all respects so far (not all modules have been used yet, but more will be used early 2024). It did take some time to set up the "shell" but was well worthwhile. Data imports were easily done. Congratulations to the entire MEX team.

Pros:

There are numerous positive aspects to MEX - security, flexibility, automation and cross liking of data and reporting functionality. A very significant aspect is the excellent help files and support offered by everyone at MEX. I have been looking for something like this for a very long time and am more than happy with everything and everyone. As mentioned, great help files and you tube videos.

Cons:

No bad experiences yet, any new system will have a very steep learning curve. It took some time to get my head around the set up, but previous understanding of maintenance requirements / tracking functionality was a bonus. I think new users need to understand their operations / requirements very well and allow enough time to get the system to a useable place. That is not a negative aspect at all, but it is a cost to be aware of.

Great concept, poor execution

3.0 3 months ago

Comments: MEX is a great idea, but the execution is where it falls flat, plus locking everything behind a paywall is where it falls even flatter. MEX might be okay if our data was set up correctly in the initial implementation, but even just doing basic functions is a tedious process, let alone fixing 15+ years of botched and inconsistent data. It makes no sense to me why, in 2024, a system does not have a drag and drop customization interface or the ability to go into settings and click check boxes to determine access for security groups rather than having to individually locate each module, field and back door to give/remove access, or even the ability to use "quick edits" in ANY listing, or any field (including customs).

Pros:

The MEX suite means that we don't have to have multiple systems to perform the basic functions our business requires.

Cons:

The UI is about 20 years out of date, the user manual is riddled with mistakes and only provides basic information, the rest is locked behind a paywall. The support staff all have inconsistent training so they are constantly contradicting one another. MEX branding is in consistent, which combined with the user manual errors, makes the MEX team seem unpolished. I have contacted the support team regularly, with varying issues only to be told "oh that's not a bug, because I cant replicate it" or "We've known about that for a while, but there's no ETA on a fix" (Except for [sensitive content hidden], shes a wonderful help). Customizing MEX is a very clunky process, and has been vastly over complicated. Having the option to customize MEX is great on one hand, having to spend hours, or thousands of Dollars to make it happen, not so much. Especially when I have personally seen much better customization abilities with other companies just simplifying it down and making it easier for their users, rather that trying to give them the world at their fingertips and falling 20 years behind. (Look at HubSpots UI for Customisation). The contacts module needs a serious overhaul as it is extremely limited and riddled with bugs. (see HubSpots contacts/companies module)

MEX overview

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: Good to date, no major issues. Always room to improve with modifications and enhancements as the software evolves to meet industry needs.

Pros:

Easy to use, quite intuitive, has most of the functions we need. Cloud based.

Cons:

Planning and Scheduling functionality could be enhanced, cannot customize the reports, when asked if we could the answer was no as the std reports have to be the same for everyone. As mentioned auto generation of PM's can be looked at would save peoples time and effort going through activator once the PMs have been sanctioned.

MEX is a step in the right direction

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: It's early days for our organisation and staff discipline has been an issue. i.e. Having trouble getting consistent quality data entry.

Pros:

Pleasant User Interface, able to set-up and implement with some ERP experience and minimal IT skills, Mobile application (can use on Phone/Tablet as well as Desktop). Possibility of catching costs (labour/materials/contractors) and can hopefully implement Stores/Purchasing module in the future.

Cons:

Reports don't have "Sort" function in filters (to re-arrange output), could be better if it had options for prompts and/or pop-up msg as well as colour-coding for different status etc.
