Preventive maintenance is crucial to any vehicle’s lifespan. Between the costs of paying for a regular maintenance routine and having to pay for a blown engine that was under maintenance, your costs can become significant. ES provides accurate and timely capture of Engine Control Module (ECM) based mileage to ensure PM schedules are being managed effectively.
Engine Hour Time Capture
If your heavy-duty vehicles are a big part of your operations, chances are you want to keep them maintained. No one wants to spend extra time on unecessasry repairs that could have been prevented. ES captures engine hours direct from ECM or will utilize cumulative engine run time on/off to capture hours if there is no ECM available. This automated capture ensures hourly-based PM schedules are optimized.
Real time capture of trouble codes (DTCs) and Malfunction Indicator Lights (MILS), ensure critical problems can be dealt with in a timely manner. As soon as an engine light comes on, you’ll receive an alert that notifies you what vehicle has a problem. The reported diagnostic code can help mechanics diagnose and prioritize the problem even before your vehicle makes it into the shop. This will allow your team to work faster and reduce vehicle downtime.
Location updates to your maintenance staff will assist searching for vehicles and assets requiring service. Your maintenance staff will be able to see where exactly in the yard the vehicle is, or if it’s in the shop having repairs. This allows your staff to cut out any time spent searching and focus on the other duties that they need to perform.
Asset System of Record
The ES platform provides the records for all asset data. Additions, modifications or terminations in your fleet are recorded. That means you only need to maintain the one database of assets. That allows you to take advantage of managing only one data set of assets for your both your maintenance system and your GPS and telematics platform. Having an all-in-one solution, and one database of assets to manage, will help you improve your efficiency and improve productivity.
