FleetFocus Integrates with Networkfleet's GPS Fleet Tracking Solutions
As vehicles and their on-board technology have become more sophisticated, so has the ability to gather and track the data associated with that vehicle via telematics. There are numerous sensors and systems within a vehicle to monitor its performance. Networkfleet offers patented technology that communicates directly with a vehicle’s onboard computer, interprets the data and transmits important information back to the operator, your service provider or fleet managers.
Networkfleet’s GPS Fleet Tracking technology can be integrated in real-time with the FleetFocus maintenance management system. This gives fleet managers quick and easy access to vehicle location as well as diagnostics and vehicle maintenance alerts without having to switch to another application. Additionally, real-time meter readings are sent directly from the vehicle to FleetFocus, which saves time, increases accuracy and allows for timely scheduling of preventive maintenance.
If Networkfleet's detects a diagnostic problem in a vehicle, a service request is automatically generated in FleetFocus. This helps streamline maintenance and reduce vehicle downtime. By knowing potential component failures ahead of time and being proactive with preventive maintenance scheduling, maintenance professionals can reduce the cost of repairs on the vehicle and ultimately increase that vehicle's uptime.
How It Works
AssetWorks uses its MAXQueue middleware technology to integrate communications between FleetFocus and Networkfleet’s to perform the following actions:
Pull all asset meter readings from Networkfleet and post into AssetWorks FleetFocus
Valid and timely meter updates are crucial for effective preventive maintenance planning inside the FleetFocus fleet maintenance management software
Pull diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and post into AssetWorks FleetFocus as new Service Requests
Maintenance is alerted to a new service request which is then added to a current work order or converted to a new work order.
