Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to some key questions you may have regarding HCSS Cloud or HCSS.

How do I host Equipment360?

Choosing the right license structure for your organization is an important part of your Equipment360 purchase process. Whether your company is a small sole proprietorship or a large multi-divisional corporation, Equipment360 has a license structure that fits your organization.

Network Hosting

Your company can host Equipment360 licenses and data on your company’s server, allowing for multiple users to be in the system at one time and have access to the same data. Equipment360 Manager licenses are shared and can be used concurrently. The total number of licenses represents the maximum number of users who can be logged into the Equipment360 Manager system at the same time. Equipment360 Mechanic and Mobile Mechanic licenses are individually named per user, so the license belongs to the individual and can travel from device to device.


HCSS Cloud-hosted

Instead of clogging up your IT department’s resources, allow HCSS Cloud Services to host your Equipment360 licenses and data on our highly secure servers. We’ll take care of all the technicalities behind the scenes, including security maintenance, data backups, and HCSS product updates. All you have to do is connect to your HCSS products through an internet connection on any device. Equipment360 Manager licenses work like a standard Network version, allowing multiple users access to the same jobs at the same time. Manager licenses are shared and can be used concurrently. The total number of network licenses represents the maximum number of users who can be logged into the system at the same time. Equipment360 Mechanic and Mobile Mechanic licenses are individually named per user, so the license belongs to the individual.


Enterprise

Our Enterprise version allows companies with multiple business units to share Equipment360 Manager licenses, while maintaining completely separate data sets. Fleet managers can see data across the entire organization to report against all business units, which are managed independently. However, each business unit sees only the assets, jobs, and employees that matter to them. Equipment360 Manager network licenses are shared and can be used concurrently. The total number of licenses represents the maximum number of users who can be logged into the system at the same time, across all divisions. Equipment360 Mechanic and Mobile Mechanic licenses are individually named per user. The license belongs to the individual.

How do I host Fuelerplus?

Choosing the right software hosting solution for your organization is an important part of your FuelerPlus purchase process. Whether your company is a small sole proprietorship or a large, multi-divisional corporation, FuelerPlus has a solution that fits your organization.

Network Hosting

Your company can host FuelerPlus Manager licenses and all FuelerPlus data on your own server or cloud, allowing for multiple users to be in the manager system and have access to the same data at the same time (or separately). FuelerPlus Manager network licenses are shared and can be used concurrently, so the total number of licenses purchased represents the maximum number of users who can be logged into the software at the same time. FuelerPlus Mobile licenses are individually named per user, so the license belongs to the individual and can travel from device to device.


HCSS Cloud-hosted

If you’d prefer to let someone else handle the IT side, the HCSS Cloud can host your FuelerPlus Manager licenses and all your FuelerPlus data on our own highly secure servers. When you purchase HCSS Cloud Services, we’ll take care of all the technicalities behind the scenes. We’ll perform regular security maintenance and data backups, and we’ll also perform all HCSS product updates when you’re ready. All you have to do to access your software is connect to FuelerPlus (or other HCSS products) through an internet connection on any device. HCSS Cloud licenses are individually named per user, so your company will need one for each person accessing HCSS software in the cloud. Once logged into the cloud, however, FuelerPlus Manager licenses are shared and can be used concurrently, just like a regular network system. FuelerPlus Mobile licenses are individually named per user, so the license belongs to the individual.


Enterprise

Our enterprise version of FuelerPlus is perfect for large companies with multiple divisions doing different types of work. Enterprise allows companies with multiple divisions to share software licenses while maintaining completely different data sets. For example, if you are a bridge work fueler, you will only see bridge work jobs and data available to your division when you log into FuelerPlus. But your utility division will only see utility data, despite using the same licenses.

How do I host HCSS Dispatcher?

Choosing the right software hosting solution for your organization is an important part of your HCSS Dispatcher purchase process. Whether your company is a small sole proprietorship or a large, multi-divisional corporation, HCSS Dispatcher has a solution that fits your organization.

Network

Your company can host HCSS Dispatcher licenses and data on your own server or cloud, allowing for multiple users to be in the system and have access to the same data at the same time (or separately). HCSS Dispatcher network licenses are shared and can be used concurrently, so the total number of licenses purchased represents the maximum number of users who can be logged into the software at the same time.


HCSS Cloud-hosted

If you’d prefer to let someone else handle the IT side of HCSS Dispatcher, the HCSS Cloud can host your licenses and data on our own highly secure servers. When you purchase HCSS Cloud Services, we’ll take care of all the technicalities behind the scenes. We’ll perform regular security maintenance and data backups, and we’ll also perform all HCSS product updates when you’re ready. All you have to do to access your software is connect to HCSS Dispatcher (or other HCSS products) through an internet connection on any device.

HCSS Cloud licenses are individually named per user, so your company will need one for each person accessing HCSS software in the cloud. Once logged into the cloud, however, HCSS Dispatcher licenses are shared and can be used concurrently, just like a regular network system.

See pricing for HCSS Dispatcher »


Enterprise

If you are part of a large company with multiple divisions doing different types of work, an enterprise network may be right for you. Our enterprise version of HCSS Dispatcher allows companies with multiple divisions to share software licenses while maintaining completely different data sets.

For example, if you are a bridge work dispatcher, you will only see bridge work assets available to your division when you log into HCSS Dispatcher. But your utility division will only see utility resources, despite using the same licenses.

For those companies that would like to share one license for several users, a single-user network version is available.

If we host our licenses on the HCSS Cloud, who owns the licenses?

Your company will continue owning your software licenses. HCSS Cloud Services simply makes it easier to host and access the software you already own.
