Trimble has announced a new TMT Fleet Maintenance software module for third-party heavy-duty maintenance providers. Trimble says its 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 company says. 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 new module will allow technicians to receive real-time notifications of service coverages during maintenance visits and allows drivers to make 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 Renaldo Adler, industry principal for asset maintenance for Trimble’s Transportation Division. “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.”
