NASHVILLE. EBE Technologies, a provider of enterprise automated decision support (ADS) applications for the transportation and logistics industry, announced the launch of Ships Vehicle Maintenance Solution (VMS). VMS allows carriers to optimize their internal or outsourced maintenance operations, the company said, adding that the solution streamlines all aspects of the maintenance processes.
Through the application, personnel can monitor and manage all aspects of fleet maintenance; from parts warranty information, to deprecation of asset values, to DVIR citations and personnel certifications to ensure staff make the right decisions and avoid unnecessary equipment downtime. According to the company, VMS can be configured for carriers that utilize their company owned repair shops or outsource their repairs.
“VMS incorporates EBE’s other workflow solutions to provide purchase order processing, price sourcing, roadside inspection monitoring and dispatch,” the company said. “As a web based application, important information can be shared amongst team members in real-time, improving productivity and reducing costs. This powerful application also interfaces with EBE’s Purchase Order Application to create zero-balance purchase orders when replacing a warranty part.”
“Managing assets and keeping their preventative and repair maintenance up to date is a major issue for transportation providers today. With all of the challenges that are associated with fleet maintenance, it is becoming more important for trucking companies to utilize an automated solution,” stated Larry Kerr, president, EBE Technologies. “This application takes advantage of EBE’s ‘manage by exception’ workflow methodology, mobile workforce and integration capabilities while linking critical data points between the drivers, dispatch, mobile communications and accounting systems.”
