What’s New at MaintainX – May 2023

Summer is in the air, and here at MaintainX, we’re getting warmed up for some big months ahead.

Last month, we introduced custom Purchase Order approval workflows on our Enterprise plan to help you control costs more effectively.

And in May, we added further flexibility to our Purchase Orders module to make MaintainX more adaptable. Here’s what we released to help you streamline your purchasing process and bring it all within MaintainX.

Reduce Delays by Approving Purchase Orders on the Go

Since we launched custom Purchase Order Approval Workflows, customers have been adding new approvers from across their organizations. But these folks aren’t always sitting behind a desk, so we worked quickly to make this feature even more valuable to mobile approvers.

Purchase Orders can now be approved and declined from within the MaintainX mobile app to help speed up the approval process even further. Approvers using the mobile app can now see the “Approve” and “Reject” buttons for POs assigned to them. This allows them to quickly move POs through the process, even when they’re on the move.

Remember to update your MaintainX app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store to access this convenient feature.

Add Custom Fields to Purchase Order Line Items to Collect the Data You Need

Not all Purchase Orders are created equal, and we know you might need to include specific information on your POs that doesn’t already exist in MaintainX.

For more flexibility and control over your POs, you can now add custom columns to your PO line items. For example, you might want to add a text field that provides extra context for each line item, such as a relevant person, project, or reason for making the purchase.

If you’re interested in adding custom fields to your PO line items, please contact your Account Manager.

Weekly App Releases Driven by Customer Feedback

We also updated our mobile apps four times throughout May, delivering user experience enhancements across several of the modules in MaintainX. We’re continuously responding to customer feedback, and we’re thankful to all of those who helped us to make our platform even more effective for frontline teams this month!
