Improves Shop Efficiencies; Delivers New Retail Service Center Capabilities
CLEVELAND, Ohio– Trimble Transportation, Inc., North America’s largest provider of enterprise management software designed specifically for the transportation services industry, today announced the release of TMT Fleet Maintenance for Windows Version 9. The application is offered by the TMW Asset Maintenance Software business unit, previously known as TMT Software, located in Durham, N.C. The new release helps companies performing fleet and equipment maintenance and repair operations to improve efficiency, collaborate and electronically communicate with vendors, suppliers, and OEMS.
The new release extends the automation of the entire fleet maintenance and repair function while still interfacing to leading accounting software and includes electronic GL coding-to-inventory capabilities. For more transparency to operational costs, a new feature presents company management with a comprehensive accounting of vehicle maintenance and repair with the ability to drill down into costs—even for a single piece of equipment—throughout an entire vehicle lifecycle.
TMT Fleet Maintenance for Windows V9 enhances the ability of independent, retail service centers to compete more favorably with dealerships by adding support for multi-company fleet unit designations, packaged pricing, and job code and task-based pricing. The new Customer Inquiry System (CIS) enables web-based, self-service capabilities for repair center customers, including the ability to look up repair information for their fleets while allowing service centers to push information such as recalls, notifications, and sales and marketing campaigns to their customers via the internet.
Trimble Transportation is recognized in the industry for robust software solutions designed for firms involved in the transportation services sector. The 25-year-old company acquired the Asset Maintenance Software operations last year from TMT Software, extending its customer base to include ready mix cement fleets, construction fleets, municipalities, waste haulers, and school districts. The maintenance product line incorporates innovative technologies for automated repair orders, invoice generation, touch screen mechanic work stations, shop planning and warranty tracking and recovery programs. The new version also improves the quality of management reports and parts inventory processes.
“Simply stated, we are the Enterprise Resource Planning system for fleet and repair operations,” said Scott Vanselous, TMW senior vice president and general manager. “This release has the capability to integrate a fleet maintenance operation with an entire business and service provider ‘ecosystem’ to automate workflow processes and the capture and delivery of information within and beyond the shop environment. This integrated approach drives efficiencies in the complex and critical fleet maintenance process and helps companies more accurately measure and control the true costs to operate their assets.“
“The product has wide appeal for use in maintenance and repair service centers, as well as in private and for-hire carrier fleet operations. It truly furthers our mission to profitably provide the finest asset maintenance and fleet management technology and services. This new release raises the bar,” stated Vanselous.
