Improve Manufacturing Efficiency with our Asset Management Suite of Tools

We know how important machinery and other manufacturing assets are to your operations, so we built a suite of powerful tools to help your team work efficiently. From leveraging sensors to work smarter, to being able to track your carbon footprint and cut utility waste, our manufacturing maintenance software helps tackle problems and saves you time and money.

Asset Essentials

Your manufacturing equipment and machinery requires the utmost care to ensure they run smoothly and efficiently. Without asset management software, you have no way of knowing how your assets are performing or when the right time for maintenance is. Simply put—you don’t have visibility and information needed to position yourself for long-term success.

That’s why you need our powerful CMMS software on your team. With Asset Essentials, you can gain greater insight into your operations, decrease unplanned downtime and reduce manufacturing equipment maintenance costs. Your assets will stay online for longer and you can gain more insight into budgetary and repair-versus-replace decisions.

Smart Assets for Asset Essentials

Your operations are under tremendous pressure, from aging infrastructure and assets to constrained resources and employee shortages. Unplanned downtime and high replacement costs eat into profits. It’s time to get smart with your assets.

By adding Smart Assets for Asset Essentials to your operations toolbelt, you can maximize uptime, improve asset health and lengthen lifecycle, all while eliminating unnecessary costs and increasing profitability. The secret is leveraging the power of IoT remote monitoring to help collect data, reducing your need for manual inspections and detecting anomalies before asset failure. Operate with higher utilization and reduced downtime with this powerful add-on module.

Energy Manager

Manufacturing operations professionals have always had their eye on production, output and their bottom line. Recent environmental, societal and governance (ESG) initiatives have driven change and forced sustainability to the top of many minds.

With Brightly Energy Manager™, you can track emissions and identify utility waste, all in one centralized dashboard. Lower your energy bill and gain tangible data on how you have increased sustainability across your organization.


Funding for facility upgrades can often be challenging to find. High maintenance and replacement costs pin you between a rock and a hard place. The path to a brighter future is always knowing the health of your assets so you can focus funds where they’re most needed.

That’s why we created Brightly Origin™ to help with your capital planning. Using asset-specific data, including leveraging work order and preventive maintenance data from your manufacturing CMMS, you can predict the long-term health of assets. Don’t risk asset failure—get strategic and optimize your facilities’ budget.


Without CMMS software, maintenance and operations teams are reactive, waiting for asset failure to make repairs. Utilizing a CMMS and a proper maintenance strategy allows an organization to become preventive. Take your operations to the next level and become predictive.

With Brightly Predictor, you can accurately predict the future health of all systems and assets you manage. Use this powerful maintenance management software to compare various funding scenarios and justify funding requests. Put your money where it is most needed and build a brighter future for your manufacturing organization!

You can’t get hung up on having to have all the data right away; it’s important but you can get a lot of value without having every field buttoned up.

It’s amazing to see pictures of what’s actually happening on that equipment. We can see what we’re loading and in some cases, overloading. All the additional data we’re gathering allows us to paint a picture or diagnose a problem.

Everyone on our maintenance technician team uses Asset Essentials daily, and we’re working to get the entire facilities team using it too. When we use a certain number of parts, an alert will pop up on our main dashboard and tell us the parts we need to order. It’s very helpful to ensure we won’t run out of any given part, which could send us down for a period of time.
