Dossier Systems announced the availability of GPS Insight as a new data provider for Dossier On-Board. According to the company, the integration will provide meter and diagnostic information transfer from GPS Insight to Dossier.
According to Bob Hausler, Dossier Systems vice president of marketing and technology, the first stage of the integration is available now and delivers unit meter readings directly into Dossier client databases.
“Meters drive Preventive Maintenance, so having up to date meter data in your maintenance system is critical to getting PMs done on time, and avoiding the breakdowns that follow missed PMs,” he said. “Manually collecting and inputting meters is a process that inevitably has errors and missed readings – automatic import/update solves those problems.”
Early in 2016, Dossier Systems plans to release the second stage of the GPS Insight integration, which will include the automatic import and processing of vehicle Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). When Dossier receives a DTC, it will automatically create a work request (Work Pending item).
“Rob Donat and his team at GPS Insight are great people that I’ve known for many years,” Jack Boetefuer, CEO of Dossier Systems. “They are strong innovators who are very responsive and serve their customers very well. The Dossier – GPS Insight integration offers a lot of value for our growing base of mutual customers and will allow them to leverage their data to drive proactive maintenance management to reduce costs and improve reliability, safety, efficiency, and compliance.”
