Full web

Web Architecture

The Coswin 8i full Web architecture employs all the advantages offered by the latest web technologies. Users have access anytime from anywhere via standard Internet browsers, which minimises network traffic and does not require the purchase of expensive computer devices. As a result Coswin 8i can be implemented in very different configurations, from the simplest to the most complex, in a local or an extended network.

Design & Ergonomy

Coswin 8i is very intuitive and easy to use so deployment is more efficient. In fact, the software benefits from an innovative approach, combining performance, design, user friendliness and simplicity in a way that is natural for the user. The manipulation of data is easy: entry and online modification spreadsheet-style, mass update of data, statistics on request and direct export of your data into a spreadsheet. Moreover, Coswin 8i is fully customisable for each user profile (vocabulary used, layout of the screens, addition of new fields, definition of links with external applications, contextual browsing).


Multiple companies: Coswin 8i is the ideal solution to manage several sites and/or companies since each user only sees data specific to their organisation.
Multi-language: Coswin 8i can be used simultaneously from different countries in different languages. Data and screens are adapted according to the zone or the profile of the connected user.

Reporting & performance indicators

Thanks to Coswin 8i, you can edit user-friendly reports to evaluate maintenance effectiveness and the status of your assets, it will help you build a clear rationale for strategic and financial goals. Siveco Group provides pre-defined reports and you can easily customise your own thanks to the standard integrated tool Siveco Reports.

Security and traceability

Coswin 8i enables companies to comply with the security and environmental legislation in force. Coswin 8i includes extended functions to provide an audit trail and ensure access security for transactions. You can therefore meet the specific requirements of quality assurance, traceability of actions and improve your internal services. You also benefit from the electronic signature function in accordance with 21CFR11, the pharmaceutical industry standard for example.


Management of strategic maintenance assets

Standard and corrective processes

  • Centralised register of assets and spare parts (management and encoding),
  • Graphical access to Coswin data via the Diagram Editor module,
  • Organisational tree, functional, geographical, and by family,
  • Centralisation of technical files, suppliers, builders,
  • Technical specification and safety instructions,
  • Initiation of job requests (J.R), work orders (W.O.) and review,
  • Analysis of failures (Symptoms, Defects, Causes, Remedies).

Planned maintenance

  • Full management of maintenance activities: preventive, corrective maintenance, new works, improvements.
  • Resource management allows the evaluation of schedules and employee skills in order to optimise assignments and increase resource availability.
  • Calendar of planned works and resources deployed (equipment, workforce etc.).


Inventory management

Coswin 8i is for both single and multiple warehouses. It enables item management for both stock and non-stock, repairable items, tools, reservations, outward and inward stock movements, direct orders and inventories in order to ensure parts availability at the right time and reduce surplus stocks.


Purchase management

Coswin 8i allows precise supplier management with manual and automatic purchase order requests, relationship tracking with suppliers and subcontractors, as well as prices, budgets, invoices and assets.


Multiple Organisation management

The implementation is to separate data and validation circuits according to the entity to which the users belong.

Each entity possesses :

  • Equipment
  • stores and items
  • employees
  • validation circuit by type of transaction
  • rotating teams and separate cost tracking

As a result you can manage your data in Coswin 8i by organisational entity.


The Project module purpose is to prepare, plan and follow-up the realisation of maintenance projects requiring preparation tasks, facilities and tracking of time spent and costs, for example new works, annual shutdowns, construction, etc.) A project is made up of tasks that can be linked together and may generate Work Orders.


This module allows maintenance companies to manage their customers using Coswin.
These customers have requirements that may:

  • Be treated directly, for example with a WO.
  • Necessitate a study subject to quotation. This quotation must be submitted to the customer before realisation (progress status).



The purpose of this module is to optimise the validation circuit of the company. It allows the customisation of the validation circuit for different types of transaction (Job Request, Purchase Order, Order, Work Order, etc...) and tracks progress at each stage of the circuit, recognises blockages and alerts users when validation of transactions is required.



Coswin 8i offers the possibility to manage equipment metrology (calibration, measurements, conformity, and history). The goal is to guarantee equipment conformity, control measurement methods and capabilities, then handle divergences.


Linear Asset Management

A set of features allows defining a linear « equipment » (ex :pipelines, rails, roads, waterways, power lines…) as well as managing the maintenance activities linked to it.


PPE management - Personal Protective Equipment

Professional risk management and safety is at the heart of business concerns. Coswin 8i has features to track allocations of EPI by technician and manage their condition and maintenance.


Geographical Information System

The integration of ESRI GIS to Coswin 8i complements the management of your assets, enabling the initiation of maintenance actions geotagged from your CMMS but also from each GIS map.

Easy integration into your information system

Today maintenance processes can no longer be simply delegated to the factory or maintenance department level. Maintenance functions are collaborative and interact with other specialised company applications, so they are an integral part of the global information system. Maintenance is directly linked to company leadership goals. Our large range of tools (data transfer module, interface tables, web services) allow us to integrate Coswin 8i within your environment.

Mobile CMMS thanks to Coswin Nom@d

Using mobile terminals, such as smartphones and tablets, equipped with the Coswin Nom@d solution, your warehouse managers and mobile maintenance technicians can operate independently of a Coswin connection, then when connectivity is available they can exchange information in real-time with Coswin databases. Coswin Nom@d responds to the needs of itinerant employees in industrial and utilities companies.

A flexible offering

We offer a range of choices for deployment of Coswin 8i:

  • License mode: traditional license purchase. Coswin 8i in license mode will be directly installed on your internal network server. You will therefore handle and manage your server.
  • SaaS subscription mode: CMMS becomes a simple service. You rent Coswin 8i software that is hosted in a secure cloud *.

Your company can thus choose the mode of deployment corresponding to your needs while complying with the IT policies in force.

*Our partnership with a specialised and well-known hosting provider for critical applications represents a key factor for success in our offering and fully meets market expectations.
