Stop living in the past with reactive maintenance. Get proactive with our maintenance dashboard that provides you with a quick snapshot of vehicles that require immediate attention and vehicles that have already passed their due date. You’ll be one step ahead before parts break or vehicles break down.
Create and maintain the list of all the services for your entire fleet while preserving historical service records, including scanning and uploading receipts. These records can tell you what you’re spending on parts and labor, even when a vehicle may have overstayed its welcome.
Never let maintenance needs sneak by you. Get alerts and notifications for service due, oil changes, engine hours, mileage, and any other type of preventative service. You have enough to worry about — don’t try to remember all of your vehicles’ maintenance needs alone.
Properly maintaining brakes, tires, coupling devices, and other mechanical systems and parts can lower your risk for collisions. In fact, a study conducted for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration found that 27% of accidents involving one truck and one passenger vehicle were caused by brake problems.
Loss in productivity, man-hours spent as your drivers sit on the side of the road, and the costs associated with any damage to goods and equipment could be detrimental to your business. When your vehicles are in tip-top shape, they are less likely to break down. This saves you all of the trouble that hurts your business’s bottom line.
Fuel is a fleet’s most significant cost. Automotive Fleet Magazine reports that proper maintenance can improve fuel economy by as much as 40%. The U.S. Department of Energy states that proper tire pressure can improve your gas mileage by 0.6% on average—up to 3% in some cases. With scheduled maintenance alerts, you can save hundreds in fuel costs and improve your bottom line.
Your drivers are your greatest asset. Having the right tools to complete the job is part of employee satisfaction, including a reliable work vehicle. Keep your employees happy by providing a reliable, safe vehicle every day while they work.
"Predictive maintenance keeps fleets highly available and running, providing service, and generating revenue. It helps fleets keep vehicles utilized for longer without buying a new truck. Managers now have the ability to be proactive instead of reactive within their fleets. The ability to track a vehicle’s health, location, driving habits, and fuel usage are well-known. A proactive approach also helps in scheduling the work around periods of lower utilization for drivers, calendaring it, and also for extracting deals and discounts.”
