Why CMMS Data Group & MVP Capture

In the late ’90s, Ruth Hughes (née Olszewski), CMMS Data Group’s founder and CEO, traveled 100% as an MP2™ CMMS software training consultant. At the end of each assignment, she was asked:

  • How do I get all of our data into the system?
  • What are other companies doing?
  • Can you help us on the weekends?

Since she traveled 100% (Sunday – Friday), Ruth’s only free day was Saturday so her answer was “No” even though she wanted to help.

Then, an Avery Dennison maintenance manager and supervisor offered Ruth an eye-opening dollar amount to help them with MP2 on the weekends. At this point, she knew there was a market for good CMMS software help but wasn’t ready to start a company until…

She visited a company that had created a barcode solution to collect work order data and update their CMMS with it. Ruth was awestruck and had a flood of ideas on how to turn this basic concept into something incredible to help customers answer the question, “How do I get all the data into the system?

As she left the plant, the sun was setting and it was at this beautiful moment that she knew that she was going to build MVP Capture (Mobile CMMS) and CMMS Data Group (CDG) to help CMMS users throughout the world.

Why MVP Plant and its Mobile app were Created

CDG was founded in 2000 to help MP2 CMMS software users. Because customers were so pleased with its MP2 offerings (Training, Technical Support & Add-Ons), they repeatedly asked Ruth, “When are you going to build your own CMMS?” She was humbled by the question but thought that there was already too much competition out there and assumed that most companies already owned a CMMS.

Soon thereafter, she realized that the competition was under par (expensive, unfriendly, and out-of-date) and that many companies still needed CMMS software. Ruth then decided to create amazing CMMS software to further help maintenance, facilities, and reliability professionals.

In 2008, MVP Plant CMMS software was released. It’s updated 3 times per year, uses the latest technology, and is complete with years of CMMS, maintenance, facilities, and reliability feedback, making it the most powerful, yet easy-to-use system available on the market today.

With MVP Plant, first came the Mobile CMMS (MVP Capture), then came the CMMS. No other CMMS software company can say this. Even though we now offer MVP Plant CMMS software, we’ll never stop supporting MP2 users because they are the reason why we are here today. If you currently have MP2 and would like to make the most of it, we’re here to help. Should you seek an alternative, Contact Us today and we would be pleased to share MVP Plant with you.
