No one in the trucking industry likes trucks that aren’t moving. After all, an idle truck isn’t generating revenue. An idle truck, in fact, is only generating costs.
Keeping your vehicles on the road by ensuring that proper and timely fleet maintenance is performed is the main mission of your maintenance operation. When a truck breaks down - something we all know will happen at times - getting it up and running quickly can present an even bigger challenge.
Why Go Mobile?
On the road, in the yard or at a job site, the ability to capture critical information and accelerate the truck service and repair process is essential. Today, handheld devices with reliable mobile connectivity like smartphones and tablets not only make that possible, but almost mandatory from a business efficiency standpoint.
Mobile devices ensure your fleet technicians can access information, from check-in and driver inspection reports to diagnostic fault codes and PM checklists. They can use this data to streamline service and repairs, no matter where the truck is located.
Instant access to information also enables fleet managers to stay on top of vehicle service and repair activity. Leveraging mobile technology, you can capture information from outside the shop for real-time visibility, and for updating your fleet asset maintenance software.
If this sounds like an opportunity for the distant future, think again. With TMW Systems’ new Mobile Mechanic App, fleet maintenance shops and independent repair centers can manage service and repair activities and capture information at any location, at any time – right now.
Compatible with Android phones and tablets, TMW Mobile Mechanic works seamlessly with TMW’s Fleet Maintenance solution for in-house operations and Service Center software for independent service providers.
