About Benchmate

In 1985, Benchmate began developing what has resulted in a long-standing reputation for delivering value-based maintenance management tools to meet the demands of clients in a wide-range of industries. Today, that focus remains unchanged as companies continue to trust and rely on Benchmate to address and resolve their maintenance management challenges.

Bob Nichols is president of Benchmate having served in that capacity since creating the business in the mid 1980’s. As an educated and well-trained engineer, Bob has always looked for ways to improve things without “over-engineering” the solution. He took this approach to develop the Benchmate product after recognizing a CMMS market void between large, cumbersome packages and smaller systems that were awkward and slow. The result of his initiative and the collaborative efforts of a maintenance manager’s consortium was an easy to use product that fit perfectly for small to medium size maintenance organizations.

Benchmate uses high performance database software from Faircom Corp.
