SHIPS Vehicle Maintenance Solution Manages and Reduces Fleet Maintenance Costs
Nashville, TN: EBE Technologies, the leading provider of enterprise automated decision support (ADS) applications for the transportation and logistics industry, announces the launch of SHIPS Vehicle Maintenance Solution (VMS). VMS is a comprehensive, integrated solution suite which allows carriers to optimize their internal or outsourced maintenance operations. The solution streamlines all aspects of the maintenance processes; making sure trucks, trailers and other equipment get serviced in a most cost effective, efficient and timely manner.
Through the application, personnel can monitor and manage all aspects of fleet maintenance; from parts warranty information, to deprecation of asset values, to DVIR citations and personnel certifications to ensure that staff make the right decisions and avoid unnecessary equipment downtime. VMS can be configured for carriers that utilize their company owned repair shops or outsource their repairs.
VMS incorporates EBE’s other workflow solutions to provide purchase order processing, price sourcing, roadside inspection monitoring and dispatch. As a web based application, important information can be shared amongst team members in real-time, improving productivity and reducing costs. This powerful application also interfaces with EBE’s Purchase Order Application to create zero-balance purchase orders when replacing a warranty part.
“Managing assets and keeping their preventative and repair maintenance up to date is a major issue for transportation providers today. With all of the challenges that are associated with fleet maintenance, it is becoming more important for trucking companies to utilize an automated solution,” stated Larry Kerr, President, EBE Technologies. “This application takes advantage of EBE’s ‘manage by exception’ workflow methodology, mobile workforce and integration capabilities while linking critical data points between the drivers, dispatch, mobile communications and accounting systems.”
VMS not only can help staff be more effective, it can also maximize the investment put into each asset in the fleet. With the ability to streamline the maintenance process, reduce downtime, increase the life of a truck, and maximize fleet investment, SHIPS VMS is critical for the healthy operation of a trucking company.
