Transportation software provider TMW Systems Inc. launched a maintenance management tool on Sunday that is designed to meet the needs of small trucking fleets, the firm said.
Known as "TMW FleetCheck," the cloud-based software allows fleets that operate up to 150 pieces of equipment—a combination of tractors and trailers—to improve efficiency, control costs, and comply with federal regulations without investing in computer hardware and staff, TMW said.
For fleets that outsource their maintenance, the platform can track preventive maintenance schedules, fuel usage, and warranty recovery, TMW said. For those that perform in-house maintenance, the program can cut costs by managing such variables as parts inventory and labor tracking, the firm said.
Other applications include analyzing parts procurement, reviewing technician performance, negotiating competitive vendor pricing, managing costs in real time, and renewing U.S. Department of Transportation registrations on time, TMW said.
FleetCheck users can access the software over any computer with a browser and deploy many of the same tools and reporting capabilities that large fleets use to manage their truck fleets, Renaldo Adler, TMW's principal, asset maintenance, fleets and service centers, said in a statement.
The release is the latest move by TMW to refresh its menu of transportation software tools, after updating its routing and scheduling platform in December 2016 and launching a cloud-based version of its transportation analytics suite in July 2016.
