Ownersite Technologies has released a beta version of its new mobile edition, with general availability slated for Aug. 31, 2011. Access to the app is free for all Ownersite.com subscribers. Ownersite.com is a web-based maintenance management system targeted to small- and medium-sized fleets.
Ownersite Mobile will offer direct access to vehicle records and maintenance management information located on the Ownersite.com site. Users can enter data on vehicle servicing, fuel purchases, and other information. It also integrates with geolocation services to reduce data entry for trip logging, fuel and maintenance stops.
“The mobile solution not only empowers drivers to input data so someone in the back office doesn't have to; it also puts the maintenance schedule and vehicle history in the hands of the driver at all times,” said Steve Eppinger, founder of Ownersite Technologies. “With this history at hand, they can take better care of the vehicle and make better decisions when faced with maintenance issues on the road, ultimately saving the company time and money.”
Additional features include setting user access policies, automating maintenance alerts to drivers, capturing trouble tickets from the road at the time they occur, and generating mobile reports that show administrators which records are being entered by drivers.
Ownersite Mobile can be downloaded from the Android Market. It is also optimized as a website for mobile devices, including iPhones, iPads, smartphones, and tablets running Android, Windows 7, and BlackBerry OS.
