Kenworth is offering new versions of its Kenworth PremierCare Connect maintenance management system that it says will enable fleets to more effectively manage parts inventories and maintenance operations.

The new PremierCare Connect Professional system is aimed at small- to medium-size fleets that require more features for their daily operations than the original Connect system. KW says Connect Professional has hundreds of useful features, including inventory control, PM scheduling, work orders, and repair order invoicing.

According to David Danforth, national parts manager, customers will be able to purchase a handheld wireless bar code scanner from Kenworth to manage parts and work orders and download the information to their database. This version was crafted from PremierCare Connect Plus, now renamed Connect Enterprise.

“The new Connect Professional is ideal for the smaller maintenance operation that has fewer technicians and operates within a more limited budget,” said Danforth. For larger fleets, there now is Connect Enterprise. It has all the features available with Connect Professional, along with such advanced functions as support for multiple business units and integration with other business software systems. Customers can keep track of parts and technicians' time spent on each work order by using a bar code scanner connected to the computer workstation or an optional mobile scanner.
