All fleet vehicles require individualized, ongoing maintenance in order to operate at peak efficiency. For this reason, maintaining an entire fleet is next to impossible without the help of an organized system. A fleet maintenance software system helps ensure each vehicle receives its required level of maintenance, thus extending the life of each vehicle and maximizing return on investment (ROI).
Fleet Maintenance Software System Capabilities
Fleet maintenance software enables the scheduling of preventive maintenance tasks such as oil changes, tire replacements, inspections and more. Scheduling can be implemented based on odometer reading or by date options. You can keep track of an unlimited number of vehicles and assets within fleet maintenance software systems such as iMaint Fleet, an industry-leading solution. Important data like repair costs, inspection requirements and fuel usage is stored for each vehicle, and may be retrieved at any time for quick reference. The system knows when a specific vehicle or asset is due for service based on last and current odometer reading or date criteria, and generates a work order automatically.
Extend the Life of Vehicles
By ensuring that each vehicle within a fleet receives maintenance on a timely and regular basis, you’ll increase the useful life and maximize the return on investment for vehicles. The ability to stay on top of manufacturer’s guidelines, tune-ups according to mileage, recall information and more is an invaluable tool—especially when you can access information at your fingertips. Employing a preventive maintenance strategy, one that focuses on the proper care of vehicles to prevent failures and breakdowns, can extend the life of vehicles by three or more years. The ability to extend a new vehicle purchase by just a few years can create significant cost-saving opportunities for a company.
Reduce Instances of Downtime
Transitioning to a preventive maintenance program by investing in fleet maintenance software will help your company operate at peak efficiency. iMaint Fleet ensures preventive maintenance is performed on each and every vehicle, thereby decreasing the likelihood of unplanned downtime and repairs. Any unforeseen time spent repairing vehicles are dollars lost. A fleet maintenance software purchase usually pays for itself within a short period of time when you analyze money saved on unplanned repairs year over year.
Eliminate Paperwork and Enhance Productivity
iMaint Fleet can be used on a variety of devices, eliminates the need for storing hard copy files. It can be accessed on computers, and it’s available as a mobile CMMS solution for phones and tablets. Instead of manually organizing paper files and running the risk of losing important documents, team members can retrieve information regarding a specific vehicle or asset quickly and easily. Without the need for paperwork and manual data entry, staff can utilize time typically spent on these tasks for more productive job duties. Mobile CMMS benefits companies tremendously, and is one of the many iMaint features that allow businesses to operate more efficiently.
