enterprise asset management (EAM)
Enterprise asset management (EAM) is a broad term vendors use to describe software that provides
managers with a way to view company-owned assets holistically. The goal is to enable managers to
control and pro-actively optimize operations for quality and efficiency. In earlier years, EAM was
simply called maintenance scheduling software. EAMs facilitate operations by automating
requests for upgrades, regular maintenance and decommissioning or replacement.
