Notifications Make Sure that Preventive Maintenance Tasks Don’t Slip Through the Cracks
The most recent American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) annual report tells us that the cost of operating a fleet continues to go up. Preventive maintenance is one of the best ways to be proactive about controlling costs. Make sure your profits can be reinvested!
When an asset has put in the miles or hours of operation to tell you it is approaching the end of a component’s lifetime—you’ll be notified.
That’s how you avoid costly roadside breakdowns and unscheduled emergency repairs.
They’re the avoidable problems that disrupt your operation, cost your fleet money, and impact customer satisfaction.
Alerts Help Your Prioritize the Maintenance Demands of Your Fleet’s Equipment
The FleetPal Issue Tracker allows your team to prioritize maintenance events according to Repair Priority Class as well as the actual Priority Level for the specific event.
Tracking priority two different ways lets you see whether maintenance is required according to schedule or is discovered by an unscheduled event or emergency.
It also lets everyone know if resolving it is low, medium, or high priority.
Track Issues Through Resolution With the Deals Feature
Once an issue is created in the FleetPal system—use that issue to request quotes and proposals from internal departments or repair shops in the FleetPal service provider network.
Issues attach to assets in the system so that drivers and maintenance staff stay informed.
Issues stay open until resolved to make sure nothing gets lost in the shuffle.
Everything gets prioritized so that your team can get ahead and stay ahead of your equipment’s maintenance requirements.
