MONTREAL, CANADA – December 17, 2014 – FleetMind Solutions, Inc. today announced the latest issue of its FleetSMARTS newsletter for waste and recycling fleet executives. The December 2014 edition of the newsletter, entitled “Taking the guess-work out of fleet maintenance management”, addresses fleet maintenance issues and provides recommendations for pro-active fleet maintenance management programs.
“Fleet maintenance costs are a major concern for waste fleet managers,” said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. “Reactive repairs can be expensive, and preventive maintenance programs are not always easy to implement. Our latest FleetSMARTS edition shares field-proven insights and tips for effective maintenance management.”
Research indicates that onboard computing (OBC) systems with specialized fleet maintenance support technologies can help save an estimated $2,000+ a year per truck on maintenance. OBCs can link asset management and tracking, work order management, preventive maintenance scheduling, and inventory and purchasing functions together for quick and easy viewing and decision-making.
The benefits can be compelling:
- Reduced maintenance and repair costs through more proactive management of potential maintenance issues.
- Real-time alerts that reduce the occurrence of on-the-route breakdowns which can be time-consuming and costly.
- Proactive tracking and identification of potential issues to maximize vehicles’ uptime.
