I could choose an off-the-shelf system. How is Mendix Maintenance different?
Off-the-maintenance-shelf software might at first sound like a quick and affordable option. But you should first assess the extent to which it supports your unique processes and operations. The quality of your services and the best elements of the ‘way you do things’ are your competitive advantage. An off-the-shelf system can strip you of your unique selling proposition. It can confine you to a standard way of working, making you no different to competitors using the same software. Customization is usually limited, expensive and risky.
Mendix Maintenance is different. It’s an adaptive solution.
A fully functioning Maintenance suite, each template can swiftly be adapted to accommodate your unique processes, best support your technicians and serve your customers. This flexibility is made possible because we build Mendix Maintenance templates using the Mendix low-code platform.
