International Truck and Engine Corp. has partnered with Modern Business Computing, Inc. (MBC) to develop Diamond Connection Solutions, a fleet maintenance software and parts replenishment system designed to help International dealer locations work effectively with companies managing vehicle fleets, organize their inventories, and streamline effective parts ordering.
Diamond Connection Solutions will be used by companies throughout the US and Canada to organize their parts inventories and to help maintain their fleets. The software package was designed around assisting fleet managers, to reduce their maintenance costs and better estimate their maintenance needs through the use of a simple software package, it is claimed.
The most beneficial function of the software is the ability to track quantities, costs and reorder points of truck parts in inventory based upon previous usage patterns and ordering information, the company says. Using this information, the system works in conjunction with International dealers to provide a just-in-time automatic reordering scheme for parts, in order to keep inventory levels at desired levels. Work order information – which includes parts usage and services performed – is also a very constructive portion of the software in that it enables the fleet manager to track all of his mechanics’ work and keep a complete history of work performed and parts used on each vehicle.
Diamond Connection Solutions also includes components for preventative maintenance schedules, core tracking, warranty monitoring, vehicle information, reminders and user security. Additionally, the package includes full reporting capabilities to provide the customer with detailed and specific data about his fleet including information such as total cost summaries and parts usage histories, for example. Optional modules can be purchased to handle purchase order management, fuel usage, vehicle logs, tire usage, vehicle licensing, reported problems, vehicle parts reference and employee information.
