CARL Source materializes the transformation of CARL Berger-Levrault’s CMMS/EAM

A CMMS software offer in constant evolution

Discover the CARL Source CMMS

The fruit of almost 30 years experience in asset management and CMMS, the latest version of CARL Source represents a new step forward in providing an offering tailored to the maintenance requirements of technical assets.

CARL Source incorporates the latest technological developments in equipment maintenance and management, such as the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence and BIM. It capitalises on new uses related to mobility, mapped technical repositories, and decentralised or outsourced organisation of maintenance activities.

CARL Source is based on a technical architecture and technologies that comply with current standards.

The most advanced software technology

Based on Internet architecture and reference technologies since the advent of Web 2.0, CARL Source is based on technological standards (html, Java, XML, Rest …).

CARL Source is sold both as a traditional licence and in SaaS mode.

Its continuously improved user interface reconciles simplicity and productivity, while respecting the ergonomic standards of the web. Furthermore, it offers very high levels of customisation and scalability (new fields, configurable workflow, customisable home page and dashboards; modifiable data-entry screen, print reports, etc.).

CARL Source offers a wide range of technological choices, adapted to all types of architecture (from a single workstation to wide area networks based on cluster architecture).

CARL Source also eliminates the need for proprietary solutions: all Open Source products can be used for all the architecture’s components (database, report editor, application server, etc…). It can also work with the most frequently encountered IT standards (SQL Server). In addition, CARL Source is designed to integrate with the information system and interoperate with other applications using a set of predefined and extensible mechanisms: Configurable interfaces, Web Services, API Rest, etc.

CARL Source is 100% HTML-based software that requires no plug-ins or resident code on the client workstation (standard thin client), including graphic functions (for deployment, (screen & report settings, map navigation, graphical planning, application administration, etc.).

CARL Source is available in a wide range of languages (English, German, Chinese, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, Polish, …).

3 mobility offers complete the range


CARL Touch

Mobile CMMS for technicians and stock managers.

CARL Touch

CARL Xpress

Express mode work reports.

CARL Xpress

CARL Flash

Application of public service requests.

CARL Flash

  • CARL Touch: CMMS Touch on smartphone / tablet.
    CARL Touch assists technicians during maintenance work (notification of work requests, geolocation of equipment, maintenance history and technical specifications of the equipment to be maintained, voice or touch screen reporting, etc.) and can even be used in the absence of an internet connection…). CARL Touch also allows stock managers to manage their warehouses and to describe and inventory equipment.
  • CARL Xpressa new application for technicians and service providers: intuitive and simple, CARL Xpress makes it possible to draft express reports in just a few clicks. Its streamlined UX uses features facilitating the exchange (chat) and acquisition of information (voice dictation, multimedia, NFC, QRCode).
    The application is intended for all technicians, both inside and outside the company (production teams, inspection bodies, after-sales service technicians), required to perform maintenance actions or basic diagnostics.
  • CARL Flash: the application of service requests enables users of an asset or a public space to request, for various needs, the technical services responsible for its maintenance.


Major innovations in CMMS for the maintenance and management of your equipment

Optimized regulatory maintenance:

Control-S: Combined with its CARL Source solution, Control S is dedicated to the automatic integration of regulatory controls directly from the platforms of Apave, Bureau Veritas, Dekra and Socotec With CARL Control-S, technical departments guarantee the day-to-day safety of equipment and people by controlling the regulatory maintenance activity for which they are responsible.


Visualisation of equipment and assets with the help of maps.



Mapping and geolocation of equipment, networks, buildings, infrastructure.



Integration of 3D models (buildings, infrastructures, networks) in CARL Source using the IFC connector.


2D 3D graphic and cartographic management:

CARL Maps lets you view, use, and interact with diagrams, maps and digital models directly and natively from CARL Source.

CARL Maps is a global solution made up of three complementary products tailored to your needs.

  • CARL Maps – SIG: Integration with your 2D maps published from the ArcGIS Geographic Information System (ESRI©) to manage your linear equipment (railways and roads, wet networks, dry networks, signalling,) or once-off equipment spread over a territory (public lighting, parks and gardens, etc.).
  • CARL Maps – CAD: Integration with your 2D diagrams, in .DWG format (AUTOCAD©, ARCHICAD©…) to manage buildings (housing, administrative buildings, offices, hospitals, workshops, warehouses…) and large infrastructures (airports, ports, engineering structures…).
  • CARL Maps – BIM & CIM: Operation and integration of your 3D BIM models thanks to the IFC connector. An IFC BIM Connector ensures the integration of information from 3D digital models of buildings and infrastructures and guarantees the continuity from the Construction BIM to the Operation & Maintenance BIM.




Valuation of field data (connected objects, connected machines) for optimal maintenance triggering, wear and tear prediction and failure analysis.


Maintenance assisted by Artificial Intelligence

IoT Platform:
The IoT platform is capable of processing all the components of the IoT chain, from the sensor to data processing in CARL Source. The IoT platform provides technical departments with the forecast data they need to optimally trigger maintenance.

Simplified administration:


  • CARL Source Admin: Autonomous administration of the evolution of your CARL Source software.
  • CARL Source Loader: bulk data update.


Innovation with peace of mind

We give special attention to ensuring the security of our products, whether it be exchanged data, protecting identities or the infrastructure used. Exchanges are carried out via secure protocols (HTTPS), the management of users and passwords complies with the best practices of IS Security: SHA-256 encryption, password complexity management policy, option of delegating user management to a corporate directory (LDAP, etc…)

Each version is audited, first according to internal procedures (Seeker control software, OWASP analysis / repository), then by calling in independent experts, who check compliance with IS Security practices in relation to ISO 27001.

Lastly, our development practices comply with the requirements of European regulations (GDPR) in terms of encryption and security of data access and exchanges between applications, storage and archiving duration, authorisation management, audit traceability, etc.
