Why should you upgrade from MP2 to Infor EAM?

 In EAM, Infor, Infor EAM 11.5

MP2 customers already know the advantages of a basic, client-server CMMS for work orders and preventive maintenance, but Infor EAM allows companies to move to the next level. Understanding the difference between an enterprise asset management (EAM) system and a computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) is an important part of this discussion. CMMS focuses only on maintenance while an EAM system takes a comprehensive approach incorporating multiple business functions.

Although MP2 may have served your organization well, it has its limitations. Infor EAM is a powerful Enterprise Asset Management solution that combines a web-based architecture with broad asset management software functionality, Key Performance Indicators, advanced analytics, and provides greater visibility and control of the business.

Let’s take a quick look at some key differences.


Designed for companies looking for vertical templates, companies who need a tool to standardize on specific metrics, or companies who require customized business processes, Infor EAM increases productivity while reducing downtime by managing several essential business functions within a single web-based solution.

Infor EAM is also an open system which can fully integrate with additional enterprise applications via standard integration tools. The solution grows along with your business, extending the life of your IT investment. As needs evolve, additional modules (budget, inspection, project management, calibrations) can be added to your solution… and MP2 data can easily be migrated into Infor EAM.

More than just an asset management system, think of Infor EAM as an Asset Performance Management (APM) solution that combines data capture, integration, visualization, and analytics to improve the reliability and availability of physical assets. You can continuously monitor your asset health and energy usage and detect anomalies based on real-time data with rules-based analytics and active business intelligence. By using Infor EAM to continuously monitor the energy consumption of your assets, you’ll gain the insight you need to reduce capital and operational costs. You’ll spot energy waste and take timely corrective action that leads to measurable cost savings.

With a migration to Infor EAM, you’ll invest in a solution made to easily adapt as your business and technology requirements change. You can minimize training because Infor EAM supports technologies that you’re already using and your employees are familiar with in MP2.
