Labor operations data – critical to calculation the time and cost of truck repairs – has been added by service-technology provider Decisiv Inc. to its fleet maintenance tracking and management system.
Decisiv said it’s now incorporating labor operations data from Motor Information Systems into its cloud-based computing technology platform to further improve the “in-context” display of maintenance and repair information provided to both dealers and fleets.
By incorporating MOTOR labor time data into its platform, Decisiv said fleets can now access web-based information on over 4,000 labor operations for all makes of trucks through the 2010 model year. The company added that this new capability is available on all OEM platforms offered by Decisiv at the discretion of individual service networks.
Sourced electronically, the labor time data is automatically coded using the Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards (VMRS) codes developed by the American Trucking Assns. (ATA). These codes considered the “universal language” of trucking’s maintenance management and reporting systems that enables dealer and fleet systems to share data in a format customers prefer and understand.
“Our data modules can save fleet and maintenance manager’s time and money,” said Kevin Carr, president of Motor Information Systems. “Our partnership with Decisiv will help customers get their trucks back on the road faster.”
Decisiv’s agreement with Motor is the framework for a broad-ranging relationship that will eventually extend beyond labor time data, potentially tapping into Motor’s extensive “all-makes” parts database and cross-referencing systems for vehicles and equipment used throughout the trucking industry.
