Taking care of your fleet with a good preventive maintenance program can translate to real dollars—about $11 for every $1 spent—but keeping track of maintenance schedules across an entire fleet can get complicated very quickly. Maintenance protocols vary by machine type, manufacturer, configuration, utilization rate, environmental factors, age, etc. While a handful of yellow iron might be easily manageable using paper or Excel, any growth beyond that will require software to stay on top of it all. With Equipment360, you’ll stay on top of your services, have an organized digital filing cabinet that your mechanics can access in the field, and eliminate the risk of a major failure that could have been prevented.
You may think that software is costly and slow to implement, but it doesn’t have to be. In fact, it can’t be when you need it to work “yesterday,” and there’s a pandemic demanding flexibility and efficiency. We’ve implemented new processes to get your shop paperless as quickly as possible by prioritizing key setups in the first 30 days. The result ensures you’re getting your ROI on preventive maintenance while saving tons of time in your workflow.
Here is a high-level overview of how 30 days to paperless would look for your shop:
Week 1: We’ll help you set up the basics—fleet, mechanic, and job information—so you can quickly start using the software to have your mechanics track their time and work orders.
Week 2: Next, we’ll integrate your payroll system and add additional components like missing meter readings, serial numbers, or assigned drivers.
Week 3: Then, standard PM checklists will be set up by piece or type of equipment. The service clocks will start ticking so that Equipment360 can begin sending you upcoming service warnings.
Week 4: In the final week, we’ll evaluate the benefit of more detailed reporting that is available from integrations with HCSS Telematics and the OEM Link integration with CAT, John Deere, Komatsu, and Volvo.
