Fleet maintenance management is the process of managing the repair and upkeep of vehicles owned by a business or organization to minimize cost and maximize availability. The major goal is to improve the vehicles’ efficiency and safety when they are being used to perform company work, get supplies, or transfer workers.
Many sectors require the management of vehicle fleets. Fleet maintenance management has a significant impact on overall fleet availability, whether it’s massive semi-trucks that transport commodities, construction vehicles that work on infrastructure projects, cars that transport workers, or agricultural machinery that harvests crops. This type of maintenance is necessary, but can be challenging without the proper technology.
Why DT Research rugged laptops are the best tool in fleet maintenance management?
Fleet Safety and Security
Fleet employees may have to work in difficult weather conditions, in remote locations or simply in an emergency. And this in some instances, may require protecting your assets from theft. Having a system and security in place that can efficiently manage fleet maintenance programs is critical, and this is where technology comes in. The LT320, LT330, and LT350 rugged convertible laptops have two-factor authentication (built-in smart card/CAC reader with NIST compliant BIOS available) and network communication (built-in Intel® AX200 Wi-Fi, BT 5.1 LE, and 4G LTE/AWS mobile broadband. Safety and security is as important as fuel, vehicles, drivers, and maintenance.
3 Different Screen sizes
With different sizes to accommodate the needs of customers, DT Research rugged laptops have11.6-inch, 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch screens (with optional 4k resolution in 15.6 for graphics intensive – ideal for training on a new part or system). Each has an optional front camera as well, if they need help while inside of an engine or to show issues happening to gain another opinion or guidance on troubleshooting on site with a repair request, the camera can be used to send a video or chat.
Successful fleet maintenance management also requires performing regular inspections—both visual inspections done by drivers, and more in-depth inspections by maintenance technicians. This prevents unexpected downtime and breakdowns because problems are caught and corrected before the engine fails. The LT320, LT330, LT350 rugged convertible laptops screens come with a backlit option for use in the daylight sun and night vision. When any problem requiring service or repair is found during an inspection even at night, it ensures safe operation of the vehicle.
Any successful fleet maintenance management needs to ensure that vehicles continue to operate safely through a proactive, systematic and cost-effective approach. The new line of DT Research rugged laptops (LT320, LT330, LT350) are paving the road to become an integral part in making the fleet run in an effective and efficient way.
