Do you often check out 2–3 parts hoping that one will fit? Or have you stopped the machine, removed the part to get the Manufacturer and Part Number and realized you need to order the part?

Benchmate has the information you need in one, easy-to-find screen.

The Benchmate Equipment screen lists the spare parts for each equipment. It describes each spare part including quantity-on-hand, cost, storeroom location & equipment used on. You can also review the equipment’s maintenance history from this screen.

Here’s how Benchmate helps you manage your parts:

  • Spares screen shows list of equipment using that part.
  • Parts list on PMs and Work Orders serve as a convenient ‘pick list’ when selecting parts for the job.
