After being offered initially as a TMC member benefit, the Council and Decisiv plan to provide this maintenance labor and parts data benchmarking report organized by VMRS System Level Coding based on fleet and service provider data from hundreds of thousands of maintenance events that take place within the Decisiv platform. The report will track parts and labor expenditures and trends throughout North America, sorted by geographic location and dozens of VMRS-coded vehicle systems (e.g.,, brakes 013, tires 017, exhaust 043, etc.)

“VMRS provides the data for measuring performance and reliability of specific components, the new TMC/Decisiv benchmarking tool shows that VMRS is an important tool for reporting maintenance information, said Jack Poster, VMRS services manager, TMC. “I think that many will agree that VMRS is the proven method used when it comes to collecting maintenance data.”


The new Decisiv TMC North American Service Event Benchmark reports are possible because of the data being collected by Decisiv on over 13,000 daily service and repair events for the more than 7 million commercial assets being managed on Decisiv’s SRM platform operating across the U.S. and Canada. The summaries are compiled from more than 275,000 monthly service maintenance and repair events conducted across nearly 5,000 service locations.
