Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Launch the web browser.

2. Type your Hippo address in the browser address bar.  This is your client ID (typically your company name or acronym) followed by .hippocmms.com or .hippocmms.ca 

For example: hippodemo.hippocmms.com

Or click on this link v6.hippocmms.com

 Optionally, a User can also select “Remember Me".

Note: If a User does not know his/her User or Client ID, please contact the Hippo Administrator, or contact Hippo Support at support@hippocmms.com. If a User does not know their password, they must contact a System Admin from their organization, due to security reasons.

4. Click on Secure Login.

5. A User will now be logged into Hippo CMMS.
