Preventive Maintenance Forecasting
Automated Preventive Maintenance (PM) scheduling and tracking are key components to any fleet maintenance solution. Entarus enables you define a PM classification, a grouping of vehicles that follow the same schedule of preventive maintenance tasks. You define a task to have a maintenance interval that is a specified amount of usage or number of days. All vehicles assigned to a PM classification will have a forecast of PM tasks based on the schedule and its unique usage pattern.
This module records maintenance and repair history as work orders. Aside from the details of work performed and the parts used, the work order contains information as to the original intent of the work order. Using the vehicle's normal hours of operation, Entarus is able to compute the vehicle's downtime, the amount of time that it was unavailable for use.
Tracking Maintenance Expenses
Accurate fleet maintenance data is vital to trucking companies. Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence, is often quoted with "If you don't measure it, you can't manage it". Not watching accurate numbers is like driving your automobile with your eyes closed. The data is that is recorded on work order gives you the ability to track the kind of information that will help you make smart decisions about your equipment.
As a small trucking owner, you will be able to monitor your repair and maintenance costs from multiple views. Some of the key examples are:
Part Warranty Recovery
Entarus enables the trucking company owner to track warranties for replacement parts. The warranty terms are recorded with the part when it is added to the work order. If work is performed on the component within the warranty terms, the Entarus generates messages to indicate that an "under warranty" conditions exists. Our solution provides you with the necessary information to recover the warranty.
