Gain Control and Optimize Your Fleet Maintenance Operations
SHIPS Fleet Maintenance Solution (FMS) allows carriers to optimize their internal or outsourced maintenance operations by streamlining all aspects of your maintenance processes. SHIPS FMS also interfaces with EBE's Purchase Order application to create zero-balance purchase orders when replacing a warranty part. Through the application, your personnel can monitor and manage all aspects of fleet maintenance; from parts warranty information, to depreciation of asset values, to DVIR citations and personnel certifications -- ensuring that your staff makes the right decisions and avoids unnecessary equipment downtime. FMS also integrates with EBE's compliance solutions, including Roadside Inspection Management, Driver Qualification File Management, and Driver Performance.
