Fleet Maintenance Software: Why You Need It

If you’re managing a fleet of trucks, you may be facing a lot of maintenance problems such as vehicles breaking down too often and equipment parts becoming outdated. However, there are ways to prevent this from happening, the most helpful solution being Fleet Maintenance Software

Save Money
With Fleet Maintenance Software, it can substantially save you money and time. For the best results, put employees through training to understand how to work the program before implementing it. Software helps identify fleets that are costing more money to run by identifying the top 10 percent worst operating units.

Prevent Outdated Parts and Overworked Vehicles
Perform an inventory to determine what you have. With annual inventory you may have a lot of outdated parts or not realize how many parts you actually do have available. Without the maintenance software your employees will be working harder unnecessarily and working at a disadvantage in comparison to your competitors.

 

The software will help you and your employees control assets for the company by knowing what exactly is in inventory, know pricing of equipment, specifications of equipment, history of its maintenance, what PM schedule applies, when the next service is due, warranties that may apply to each asset and which ones are still available. Not to mention other operational and administrative information that they will have access to in order to do their best at their job.

Improve CSA Score
Fleet maintenance management is a critical part of scoring your best CSA rating, as maintenance factors into a fleet's overall CSA rating. It is counted by a percentage score from your company and compared to your competitors’ rating. By using Fleet Maintenance Software, this is no longer a concern because it ensures that your ratings improve greatly. It helps organize vehicle maintenance effectively and protects them by sending out work orders for such things as oil changes and new tires.
