Asset Essentials by Brightly Software (formerly Dude Solutions) is a next-generation work and asset management platform designed for smarter, more efficient maintenance and operations. Over 12,000 operations leaders utilize this system to manage more than 49 million assets and 386 million work orders. This user-friendly platform empowers organizations to cut maintenance costs, improve productivity and make smarter operations decisions. With Asset Essentials, users initiate, assign, and track the progress of existing maintenance work orders, as well as create advanced workflows with preventative maintenance (PM) scheduling to improve long-term asset health. Users set and monitor asset thresholds with predictive maintenance (PdM) utilizing IoT sensors to reduce asset downtime. The free mobile application allows technicians to capture parts transactions or quickly issue work orders during a failed task – even in poor connectivity areas – enabling them to accomplish more out in the field or off-site. The solution also allows users to easily track and manage inventory of frequently used parts, streamlining just-in-time maintenance to ensure they have what they need – when they need it. The solution is packed with analytical and reporting and capabilities, with 100+ predefined reports, dashboards, and KPIs, empowering users with real-time data and analysis at their fingers to make and justify critical operational and budget decisions.
