New Feature Supports Industry Trend Toward Leased Equipment and Managed Fleet Maintenance
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 27, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) announced a new TMT Fleet Maintenance software module for third-party heavy duty maintenance providers, designed to better support the growing trend of outsourced fleet maintenance. Trimble's Contract Maintenance module is built to serve fleets, outsourced maintenance providers and leasing companies.
Contract Maintenance supports defining and managing maintenance service and leasing contracts for both monthly fixed and variable billing plans. The new module will also enable customers to track their service contracts and manage billing via direct accounting integrations to both Trimble products and outside accounting providers.
"The Contract Maintenance module will substantially benefit companies who perform outside maintenance for other fleets, owner/operators or even for their own fleet," said Renaldo Adler, industry principal, asset maintenance for Trimble's Transportation Division. "By using Contract Maintenance, fleets will be able to streamline their monthly billing and invoicing process and expand their service offerings without additional administrative overhead."
Connectivity to the shop's maintenance software, including repair orders, preventative maintenance and parts inventory, means services are closely tied not only to accounting but also to customers' service contracts. This enables technicians to receive real-time notifications of service coverages during maintenance visits and allows drivers to make quick decisions regarding services they need or may want. Customer invoices will automatically reflect billing information based on their maintenance coverage.
"By combining traditional maintenance tools such as preventative maintenance, repair orders, staff management and inventory tracking with new contract management benefits, Trimble customers can experience a unified system for both service contracts and maintenance repairs," said Adler. "Backing that synergy with profit/loss reporting on service contracts and yearly and contract based revenue reporting, customers will have a complete view of not only their shop but the profitability of their full-service operation."
