With iMaxeam MAXLS™, the business end-user can input data directly into Maximo® by using the MAXLS dynamic spreadsheet interface: a completely integrated and fully embedded functional tab within Maximo! True export and import function for Maximo. You can edit the data directly as if you are working in Microsoft® Excel.

Commands are easy to understand. Prefer to do your data editing in Excel? You simply use a copy & paste action: copy data from Maximo® and paste the data into an Excel sheet, transform the data to your needs, and then simply copy & paste data back into Maximo®. Data modified will be clearly identified, so before saving or converting, you can review easily and quickly. All errors from data entry, will be highlighted in the Excel-like MAXLS tab in Maximo®. MAXLS is a huge time saver for the Maximo® end-user. MAXLS is used by very large multinational companies, as well as, mid-enterprise domestic firms.

    • There is currently no easy way to see, filter and sort data in Maximo®. The standard list tab solution is very slow and hard to use. Even version 7.5 remains difficult for the end-user.

  • Business opportunity

    For End-users: Extremely useful solution for business end-users when creating, updating, or manipulating large amounts of data.

    For Deployers: Extremely useful solution for implementation and data migration processes.

  • Return on investment

    For each end-user, saves hours, if not tens of hours, per month in productivity.

    Reduces I.T. inquiries.

    Reduces data upload errors.

    Implementation/Deployment Use Case: It simplifies your implementation by a factor of 3X to 6X. We tested an implementation with MIF (standard maximo tool), and we compared it to MAXLS. Advantage is clearly with MAXLS. MAXLS take no longer than a week to complete the implementation with a business user. This is in contrast to MIF; which takes 6 weeks and a skilled Maximo deployer. The implementation was on one site, with 20,000 items, 800 assets, 600 job plans, and 200 PMs.
