Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

mars Hello Masha

First of all, great app; visually very pleasent to look at and work with. Magnitudes more easy to work with than using the old system for maintenance.

You asked for comments/suggestions/etc. Here are a few:

Right now, a user can know how many vehicles are available and how many are in service. For services in progress, it would be interesting to be able to put an estimated completition date. The idea is that in this way, a fleet manager can see theoretically how many vehicles will be available tomorrow, in 3 days, in two weeks, etc based on the estimated completion date. I know that this would be just theoretical of course because 10 trucks could break down 5 minutes after checking the info but an estimate is better than nothing. It could help plan for renting extra trucks (capacity) in case a shortage is predicted. This happens for some of my clients who sometimes need to rent extra capcity.

A question I have is how long the records are stored for? 3 months like the position data?

Thank you

Robert

Dear Roberto,

thanks a lot for such a positive feedback.

Let me first answer your question and then I will ask mine smile

Regarding data storage we will do our best to support storing data in Fleetrun for up to 5 years so that our users are able to analyze data for long periods of time. The most vivid example here would be comparing fleet costs for e.g. 2017 and 2018 years.

Now moving to your suggestion.

Generally it is great, I will put it down for further research. There is a couple of questions I am interested in:

1. Is estimated date of service completion based only on the idea of a fleet manager? Or he might have some data to judge upon/is it provided by the workshop mechanics?

2. Is such a plan for vehicles in service equally actual for small (up to 10 vehicles), medium (up to 70 vehicles) and large (more than 70 vehicles) fleets of your clients?


Thank you!

Hello Masha

I would say that five years would be just wonderful! When will we have confirmation of that and as a side question; what is the current storing duration that I can tell my clients?

To answer you:

1. This would be given by the workshop mechanics. The clients for whom this capacity prediction is interesting have their own workshop to do their repairs and maintenance. So the information comes from in-house.

2. The two clients so far that would find this useful are in the medium and large category.

To be clear, this is not a requirement they have emitted but working closely with them and knowing how they operate, I know that such an option/info would be appreciated.

Hope this helps you

I appreciate your answers, Roberto.

As for the period of data storage, we do not limit it currently. The official information that is provided in our blog says that it is 5 years. In case anything changes in our plans, you will be informed.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Great presentation today and great potential.  I encourage adding a couple of custom client fields to solve to the services tab to enable solving individual needs, examples categorizing types of services, recording vendor names or invoice numbers, ATA codes, etc.for reporting purposes. Seems would be quite simple enhancement .  Please consider.

Thanks a lot for participating in the webinar!

What concerns adding custom fields for a service, you can provide additinal service information in the Description field. It is available for each service and further on is visible in the service list and in reports.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear aahero, RobertoS, jhdeguate,

in regards to deleting and editing closed services I have the following question: do you believe there should be special rights given to users to perform these actions?

It seems that if any user can edit or delete such services, there is a possibility for manipulations that fleet managers may not want to allow.

Despite I didn't request this function, but I believe there should be special right for that not to give any user access for that.

Hello Masha

Indeed, that is something I have considered. You are right in your thinking. Ideally there should be different levels/access rights given to each user. For example only allowed to enter information but not edit, allowed to enter information and edit.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear Jary! jhdeguate

Thanks a lot for the kind words.

To tell the truth there is small technical constraint on adding Cost column in the Archived services, that's why as a first step we have added it to upcoming and in progress services only.

As a solution I can suggest you using reports for archived services that give an ability to view the total cost of a service as well as cost of the line items included into it.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hi Mars

Thanks for adding Fleetrun, it's a great application.

What i think would work better (Specially with clientes with very large fleets) is to be able to use the same unit group vehicles that are in Wialon software. We have 3 clientes with very large fleets and all 3 asked me this action.

Thanks a lot for your services.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

hello
if i have fuel sensors on my fleet to capture and monitor fuel
please confirm if in the future i  can I get cost as part of the motor vehicle cost and it can build up to my Cost per KM t
How can I allocate the mechanic/ engineer to the service job.
is it also possible to print service job cards in fleet run
if i have my motor vehicle service costs line per line  how can i Import the data from excel file to fleet run

24

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear alwanyaga,

I appreciate your suggestions.

Let me please comment on each of the point one by one:

1) Fuel to contribute to cost per km - we are currently analysing the possibilities of receiving fuel data from Wialon. There are no forecasts at the moment whether this functionality will be implemented.

2) You can specify mechanic's or engineer's name in the Description list for the service. The Description field is available in the reports and xlsx export. It means you will be able to enter this data and later also have them externally.

3) The ability of printing services cards directly from Fleetrun does not exist in the application, however you can try exporting services to csv file and print it in any Excel-like system.

4) Could you please share with me the example of such a file? Please send it to mars@gurtam.com. It would help me understand the requirements more clearly as we have many requests of this kind.

Thanks!

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hi,

in Finland we have this: https://servicehistory.online/

Any ideas from it to Fleetrun?

BR, Kalle

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hi kalle!

Thanks a lot for letting me know that there is such a cool though easy system that you use in Finland.

I have taken quite a deep look into it.

And my question is whether you ask for an ability to integrate this system into Fleetrun or do you want to see features from it in Fleetrun?

From what I analyzed I can clearly enumerate the following things this application can do (I checked usage for private needs):

1) see costs for all devices (we do this in Fleetrun too, not in bar charts, but this is just a matter of time);
2) register performed maintenance (Fleetrun does this as well, but in a more sophisticated way, e.g. registering maintenance for any date in the past);
3) upcoming maintenance and reminders (Fleetrun is able to plan a service for any date in the future, whether linked to an interval or not and remind about it in versatile ways: online, external servers, telegram, e-mail);

Please let me know if I missed anything.

On the other side, could you please specify what are particular things that you want to see in Fleetrun from the mentioned application? It would help us move further with the analysis.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear Mars

we have a Fleet of about 300 Vehicles and we have a limitation of the following

1. The unit profile in fleet run is limited  we need to be able to have more fields
2. Is it Possible to Import costs from an ERP to Fleet run through Excel \
3. Is there a possibility of generating or emailing Job cards after service is done
4. Since if i need to know cost per Kilo Meter i might need to capture all Vehicle costs. Please confirm if i load fuel cost for the vehicles
5.I have engineers who service these vehicles is it possible to that them captured in Fleet run

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear alwanyaga!

Thanks a lot for describing what you miss in Fleetrun, this helps a lot in recognizing application's prospectives. Below are my comments to each point:

1) Could you please describe what fields beside the unit type would like to have? For what purposes?
Generally we have some plans on enhancing the 'Unit profile' section, but some more details from your side will be really helpful.

2) It would be great if you could show us the sample of such an excel file, so that we are able to analyze what fields can be potentially included into it. Please send the file to mars@gurtam.com or if you want you can also attach it right here.

3) Could you please tell us more on what should be included in the job card and who does fill it in? Maybe you have some template to share? You can send it to mars@gurtam.com as well.

The reason why I ask for this is that depending on the business peculiarities a job card can have numerous templates.

4)  By fuel costs do you mean the costs of fillings?

5) It totally depends on the task that you are aiming to solve. To start with I suggest you capturing the names of the engineers in the 'Description' field which is further on can be depicted in reports that you run in Fleetrun.

Thanks again and looking forward to getting some more details on these requests.

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hi Masha,

Here are a couple of enhancement ideas for Fleetrun.

One Time Interval
I’d really like to have the ability to create an interval that only occurs once for a service object.

For example, a new vehicle has a special 1,000km service which only happens once. From then on, it has a service every 10,000km.

In this example, it would be good to be able to create a 1,000km interval with a 200km advance notice. When the first service has been created for the unit, it gets removed from the assigned service objects list for the interval.


User Defined Unit Types
It would be great to be able to define our own unit types.

Some of the terminology currently used is not what we use in Australia (e.g. we do not use the term “Lorry”).

There are a number of unit types that we need in the list - Digger, Skid Steer, Loader, Excavator.


Thanks

Matt

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Dear Matt! Coops

Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

Recently we have received another suggestion from our partner that is aimed at solving the same problem as you have described (the first one). So we have put down this request as an interesting one, that can be potentially valid for many users. We need some time to process it and see how this request can be functionally implemented. Let's stay in touch about it.

In regards to the second request I can say the following: primarily our goal was to generalize all unit types that we have in Wialon and provide Fleetrun users with a defined list of them so that they can use such a list to specify their units types. We did not give an ability to enter custom unit types as we wanted to prevent the situation when basically one and the same type is called in several different names.

But if the problem lies in just localizing unit types that we provide for different regions then I believe there is a chance we can do this. I will contact you directly soon to get more details about this request.

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

(edited by markoRCLteh 06/12/2019 12:04:06)

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hello!

My name is Marko and I am the project manager at RCLteh. Below are my suggestions on how to improve Fleetrun taken from feedback of my clients and my own evaluation. The feedback I got is from companys that operate more then 100 vehicles.

1. More input fields when creating a service by hand
Currently there are only two input fields available Name and Description. While it is true that you can write what ever you want in the Description fields this field is not available when looking at the archive or upcoming services. You need to click each service and see the description.

I suggest adding the ability to create custom fields that can be shown in Upcoming/Archive services with out the need to click on the service to see the information.

My clients would want a field that contains the company/mechanic that is planned to do the service and then they would want the ability to create reports so they could see how much they spent at each mechanic shop/company.

2. Manually created services are not able to send notifications
Currently if you create a service by hand there is no way to get a notification for that service before the due date.

For example lets say you create a service called tire change with due date 1.1.2020. There is no option/setting or anything that will send you a notification lets say for example 10 days before that date.

The system gives you the option of creating a service by hand but that option is useless if you cant get a notification for it.

3. Reporting
When creating a report for Due services that are planned there is no Due date in the generated report. Its only Term of completion column that has number of days till the Due date. I think Due data should also be included as it makes it faster to see what needs to be done. With Term of completion you need to look at the calendar and calculate your planning and so on.

4. Creating work orders for employees

The feedback I got from my clients is that the system need some kind of ability to create work orders for employees to have some sort of a paper trail of what is being done to the vehicle.

Work order are very important for the employee as it tell him what needs to be done and who needs to do it.
Work orders are very important for mechanics as it tells them what seems to be the issue, who they can call for more information, for what company is the work being done etc.
Work order also create a paper trail of work on the vehicle that the client can check if something is out of line.

For each planned service we should have the ability to create a work order that contains information:
- about the planned service(like a report)
- information about the client that is generating the work order(logo, contact information, company information)
- name and address of the mechanic shop the vehicle is supposed to go
- an empty field so the mechanic can write what was done on the vehicle
- a field so the mechanic can write status of odometer at the time of service
- a empty field for date of service
- price of service
- check box for Fleetrun(service was written into fleetrun or not)

When the service is done and the employee brings back the work order the Fleetrun admin in the company has complete information and he can complete the service. He also has a paper trail for every service.

Attaching a work order example from my client translated to English.

Marko

I understand that generally what you ask for is to be able to compare how much money was spent (as operational costs) on fleet trucks and how much money was planned to be spent. But it would be great if you can provide more details:

1. What current problems of yours or/and your clients will such a functionality solve?

2. How do you/your clients currently compare the planned budget and the real spendings?

3. How and how identifies what will be the budget?

We have been already thinking about adding custom fields, but there is a couple of things that stay unclear. It would be great if you can provide more details on this:

1) Are custom fields fleet-wise or service-wise?

2) In what parts of Fleetrun would you like to utilize the custom fields in case they appear?

To make better decisions on whether some functionality should be implemented or not, we need to understand the requests of our users better, create a picture of their business processes and what difficulties they encounter. Otherwise, there is a risk we develop smth that does not solve a real problem.

If you look the NACFE spreadsheet they have a group of 75 technologies and praticies wich generate fuel economy,its important select some groups of these technologies and praticies:Drive training for fuel economy,a preventive maintence plan,tire manegament plan,and the usage o of low rolling resistence tires.

One way to measure this ,are have these services descript in operational bugdets,separate by center of cost,and compare the paybacks of these praticies in the financial result of the fuel account.

3-https://nacfe.org/technology/low-rolling-resistance-duals/

4-https://nacfe.org/technology/preventive-maintenance/.( some  practices could reduce the fuel consumption with 5% to 10%,the protocols could be founded at page 28)

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Here in this site, there is  a test with LRR retreads and non LRR retreads that was made in US .The objective of this tes,t is show the fuel eficiency provided by the LRR retreads.This test work with these concepts:Fuel buget,Tire budget and the payback provided by the usage of the technology.

I understand that generally what you ask for is to be able to compare how much money was spent (as operational costs) on fleet trucks and how much money was planned to be spent. But it would be great if you can provide more details:

1. What current problems of yours or/and your clients will such a functionality solve?

2. How do you/your clients currently compare the planned budget and the real spendings?

3. How and how identifies what will be the budget?

Thank you.

1-First the objective is separate the cost of preventive maitenance,and corrective maitenance,and measure the impact of the cost of preventive maintenance in the fuel consumption.Generaly the fleets in Brazil control the maintenance cost in one general account,instead this account have diference center of cost's(tires,among others).

3-The bugdet will be identify by the historical level of the cost in the income statement.

2-The compare it are made using the value in the budget account of and the spending in the real account.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hello kapa,
We have I client that work with forklifts along the whole country (Brazil is very large, so the vehicles are very spread).
Every place that have units, has a coordinator who creates the services, where there is a group of people who take care of all the maintenance created and done, from the whole country. They now have asked me for a new improvement:

A mobile app for Fleetrun.
For creating the intervals, services done, assing units to the services, start a maintenance, finish, take pictures, the basic stuff that already exists in Fleetrun.

Is there any idea to create a smartphone app?

Great presentation today and great potential.  I encourage adding a couple of custom client fields to solve to the services tab to enable solving individual needs, examples categorizing types of services, recording vendor names or invoice numbers, ATA codes, etc.for reporting purposes. Seems would be quite simple enhancement .  Please consider.

Hello!

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hello i want to share with you some challenges, i posted in separate post, but i would like to share here

1-importing services is limited only to closed services, it would be very helpful if importing due and in progress services.
2- Importing services with custom fields (i have been informed it will be available soon which is great )
3-adding custom fields to intervals, just like services
now i have to fill hundreds of values for custom fields of the services generated automatically from intervals which is frustrating.
4- i dont know if its possible, but allowing bulk updating for existing services would be great i know that some values can be updated /edited in bulk operation , but what about all the other fields of the service.
(for example if i want to update the cost of hundreds of services created automatic from intervals) now i have to update it manually one by one

Hello!

1-Nowadays, it is possible to import only services in "Closed" status. Still we will consider your idea for implementation in the future.
2-Exactly.
3-This idea will be considered as well. I understand your case.
4-Thank you for the idea! It is required to dig deeper into this opportunity as it is difficult to come with a solution at once but request is clear. Please let me know whether you have some other cases except cost bulk update.

For point 4
Yes, i have a custom field for to mention (root cause ) for example
also, the description field i leave it blank in the interval (interval is inspection  check list) so when it become closed service the operator fill the description of what exactly was done, inspection output and actions taken

Hello,

There is the following constraint here. It is possible to do it only when you change service status to Closed.

  • Open "Services" tab
  • Click "Bulk operations" button
  • Select some services
  • Click "Closed" button on the page bottom
  • Click "Edit" button on modal window
  • Change value for custom fields

Please let me know whether it works for you or not.

For bulk upload of closed services, it would be helpful if allowing service start and end date by hours, so if the service time is one hour i can uplod it
now its start date and end date are the same its 1 day in service, what if i have services that took only few hours

This is for tire,based on RP642B of ATA,a good reference for the truck industry.It's good talk with your clients,about the feasibility and  their interest in implementation.

The dealer of Galileolesky   technolog developed a report of fuel  control with:Vol of the Darwin (volume of the sensor),volume stocked,the difference  of volume between both in numbers and  percentage ,and the unit price of the fuel in liter.

In the report VOL.DARWIN=Vol of the Darwin (volume of the sensor),VOL.POSTO=volume stocked,DIFERENÇA=the difference  of volume  in numbers and   %DIFERENÇA= difference  of volume  in percentage   ,%R$ Litro= unit price of the fuel in liter.

In the report called Resumo operational (operational resum) QTD de veiculos=number of Vehicle,KM total percorrido=total kilometer,média km por veiculo= average km per vehicle,consumo de Diesel total= Total diesel consumption in value.The general case it's take the total spending with maintenance in the income statement and divide by the number of vehicle (10.000$$/10),take the quocient of the division and divide by the individual odometer,and developer the KPI.

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

There are a lot of possibilites for gerencial modulus to do this (not an accounting view):

1- Do an export of an external ERP with the values of spended with fuel,maintenance to Wialon in an TXT archive
. Select the account maintenance,and did the cost  apportionment.If you want more costs, the user should select other financial account
  and do the  apportionment.
 
If the company spended 10.000 with fuel,and 10.000 with maintenance,the apportionment criteria will be 20.000 divided by 10 vehicle.The quocient divide of the division 2000 divided by the individual odometer.

2-Other solution wich  could works in wialon,when import a service the user classify the  expense,and this expense go to an financial account in wialon (maintenance),preventive maintenance,and apply the  apportionment criteria. (https://forum.gurtam.com/viewtopic.php?id=9709).

For example (https://forum.gurtam.com/viewtopic.php?id=13903) there are the products,and you could classify the expenses in a financial account (1-maintenance,2-preventive maintenance,3-corrective maintenance),and do the apportionment criteria.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

For fuel cost it's important understand the situation wich could not works in the income statament,and it's present in the report of the Dealer of Galeleolesky the difference between the volume of the sensor and volume of the volume stocked.

1-Wich goes to the cost (for fleets),it's the total price multiply by the volume.Generaly in the fleet's this aren't tretead,to audit if the fleet's have problems of fuel ,a procedure it's compare the total volume of fuel stocked in the budget  and compare with the volume registred by the sensor.If the volume is positive it's ok,if the volume it's negative you increase the cost ,multiply by the negative difference for the average price.

2-This situation usually happens in industry and gasoline post.If the gasoline post do an inventory and the volume of fuel in the ERP was 200 and the in the inventory was 190,the routine in the ERP it's create an financial account in the budget called "adjusts inventory",and add the difference 10*average cost,in the  income statment account wiil show a value 100.

3-In industries it's common have 1300 unit's of one product,and the conversion factor it's each 27 unit's, the industry could have 48.1481481481 packages, 0,148 kg could be considered waste.

4-The situation treated by the Dealer of Galileolesky,the difference o volume of fuel should be analyzed,due to negative volume could can confuse the managers,and the fleet's don't compute volume of fuel in your income statement.

5-Here is an article talck about that (https://translate.google.com.br/transla … 2520sobras).

Phillype,

Thank you for sharing your ideas and thoughts.

Nowadays, Fleetrun team plans to develop functionality for fuel filling monitor.

At first, it will be only manual creation of fuel filling event. Later on, it might be auto-creation. Manual creation will be very alike service creation. I mean there will be a separate page where you can enter all the necessary data for your fuel filling and save it. Moreover you will be able to export them in .csv file.

For sure, you will be able to create a report by fuel filling with some of mentioned by you attributes:

  • the unit price of the fuel in litre
  • number of Vehicle
  • total kilometer
  • average km per vehicle
  • total diesel consumption in value and etc.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

The concept of interval works well with:

1-Payback of maintenance it's 12-18 month (https://nacfe.org/technology/preventive-maintenance/).The user with the value of the maintenance expense and the fuel expense,could do  apportionment criteria,and the see the payback (during the time to invest in maintenance the fuel efficiency increase).

Cost generaly,it's the  "expense of something"  wich goes to some financial account.

Phillype,

As soon as we add manual creation of fuel filling, you will be able to see payback of maintenance and fuel filling costs as well.
These data will be shown on unit profile and dashboard. Moreover, you will be able to create line item that will be called "Fuel".
It will be the 3rd line item:

  • part
  • labour
  • fuel (new)

Still, your question "Could you explain to me why fleetrun call interval what's is cost?" is not clear for me. Please give more details. I'd like to help.

The concept of Markup work's better to this situation that you and your team developer(https://forum.gurtam.com/viewtopic.php?id=14187&p=2).What is the situation that we see here in Brazil and in other countries in the public transportation,in the same route ,the number of  passenger decreases ( Nimbus show the number of passenger) and they have same cost's like:Leasing , depreceation of the  vehicle,maintenance,fuel cost.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

i   will send the income statement (it's important don't mix the concept with the fuel cost pre-programmed in fleetrun),it's managament KPI used in all business.There is a file in excel,you should go to the second tab and look to the line called Resultado Operacional (operational result's),this KPI it's the Break Even Point of the companies,how many they have to sell to pay all your cost's.

If the operational result's it's positive,the companies could pay the interest of a leasing,if the operational results it's negative the companies it's lose money,and if the operational results it's zero the company does not lose money and get profit.

The concept of operational results it's important to Nimbus,and the logistic modulus.For the maintenance modolus it's important understand that the situations when the companies of the public transport need works with the buss with a  higher capacite to be profit (a situation that could be present in emerging markets,due to this will case mechanics problems.

It's important distinguish the situation,when the companies works with the maximum capacite and respect the load capacity of the vehicle,when the companies need exceed the load capacity to be profit.

Your partner Cargo.Run in Russia probably could help you ? due to their experience with accounting system (https://gurtam.com/en/soft-developers),business analyst will works with indicators,projections.

The other indicator's it's Média dos 8 meses=Average of 8 months, Total de impostos =Total net taxes ( desconsidering due to was not include in the simulation),Receita Liquida=Net Revenue (in the simulation was considered the total value of sales,how ever in the  companies using Net Revenue= Sales-Total net taxes),Custo com serviço prestado = Raw Materials used in the product that was sold in the month,Lucro Bruto= gross profit (to Calculate was considering gross profit=  Net Revenue- Raw Materials),despesas operacionais=Operational expenses,Mão de obra e encargos=Labor cost,Total de custo pessoal=Total labor cost,despesas gerais= General expenses,Resultado Operacional=Gross profit-Labor cost- General expenses,Percentual de crescimento=percentage of growth,Saldo Finais=closing balances,projetado=projected,total=total.


The structure of income statement (as  business view not accounting) it's:

1-Value of total sales

2-Total net taxes

3-Net Revenue=1-2

4-gross profit=  Net Revenue- Raw Materials (these rules depending of the business)

5-Total expenses

6-Operational results=4-5 (This metric   use  to evaluate if companies are profit,with the result's of the operational results the companies take decisions to pay for a leasing,etc).

You could use the concept of operational result's in:Nimbus,in Fleet's,depending the situation in agrilcuture,due to they will buy a vehicle to use in the operation,the vehicle will need operate to be profitable.


Please desconsidering the concept of Markup, and the complete definition of "what's cost in the income statement" .The break-even point concept, will be easily to understand.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

So Fuel cost it's a  variable cost variable ( could depends of the number of the passenger,).The KPI for the  fleet's could be
their ebit or their  operational results divided by the total of vehicle.Look at the case of the buses companies,the number of their passanger decreases how-ever they have the same maintenance cost, and the same fuel cost's .The write   interpretation for this  could be   , their ebit it's negative and they have the same maintenance cost,and the same fuel cost for a less volume of  transported passanger .

(https://translate.google.com.br/transla … sem-onibus)

If you add fuel cost in a maintenance module, the managers should have to look at their transporte capacity,due to they could have the same
fuel cost or maintenance cost,and a less volume of cargo transported.

Probably your partner in Russia Cargo.Run ( integration with accounting ERP's it's their expertise),they  could will understand better this situation.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

There is a demand to Gurtam integrate a tire management solutions modules.You will be find this type of software
in Clients of Gurtam ,like Tyre-man wich use the Entire software, companies like Translogik wich developer a  product to
measure the tread-deapth.In Brazil you will be find this solution in company like Gecaf wich use the product of translogik
,Pneu-Plus have a  software option  for tire  management.

It's intersteting the approach did by the american Benchmarks do:They consedering tyre as a preventive maintenance routine  in the companies,this approach could be used to unify the demands,due to be a demand in US developer an app,for in-house.The approach did by the americans that i've cited here (https://forum.gurtam.com/viewtopic.php?id=14188&p=2),depends of the company could be intersting,due to  the existence of mixed fleet's and new trucks in the general they need more preventive maintenance, they have guarantee of the manufacturer,their tires are new and will be retread in the future,etc.

The suggestions it's based on the TMC RP's (you should go to the topic,mayde a search put the word RP    211C ).The RP's works
as  an example to understand better the situation,and developer one solution of maintenance (if is possible).

Here it's an example where you could find this type of solution

1-Pneu-plus offers many modules include:An complete ERP for the fleet's,they have a tire management  (https://translate.google.com.br/transla … a-pneus%2F),however, they have no maintenance modules like fleetrun (you could see in the site),they have a solution for fuel cost wich it's intersting to note (https://translate.google.com.br/transla … ustivel%2F),they have an integration with GPS however telematics it isn't their expertise.



2-The other companies here which use the old product of the translogik,it's Gecaf (https://translate.google.com.br/transla … .com.br%2F),they have a focus in maintenance.

3-Probably could be  a solution like this of translogik ((https://trans-logik.com/partners),https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9b3aAetMMsc&feature=emb_title in software.

4-Could be a solution like this that a retread company based  Vaculug in UK ,https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_Ib4i … emb_title.

5-You will be a find a solution like this,in your client's like Tyreman wich use the software Entire based in Australia.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

This reasoning could be intersting,for fleet's do their caracteristics (https://forum.gurtam.com/viewtopic.php?id=16695),if we look to the data the market share of TPMS in fleet's it's very low,normaly they buy more low quality  tires than good tires.The situation in the other market's it's very different,it's possible see that Bridgestone don't buy all the product's of Translogik,they buy only the solution for the OTR market
(https://www.bridgestone.com/corporate/n … 62501.html)  .

The software company called Entire wich works in Tyreman group probably have a good knowledge between the difference of the OTR market and the fleet's market.The owner indicate to me Translogik,and your company are present in many countries outside Australia,and your company have an interesting business model wich an engineer take the doubt's  of your client's.

The moviment of Continental could be   intersting:To promote your TPMS they have announced an integration with many Telematics companies (https://www.continental-tires.com/trans … heck/about).Other moviment that i saw,was the product of Stemco Aeris,  an Automatic Tire inflation system, get out of line due  Stemco start an    restructuring  process (https://www.stemco.com/product/suspensi … r-springs/).

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hello Katsiaryna in this case was compared the volume of the sensor in the truck,and the volume  stocked by an invoice,and compute the difference between the volumes.Did wialon do this ? So your partner in Russia  Kilometrazh work with fuel card and treat the anomaly between the volume stocked in the price.

It's interesting analysis other possibilities:Separate in a report the volume of the sensor and the volume stocked,and in the part of the fuel cost if the volume of the sensor it's equal to the volume stocked it's ok, if the volume of the sensor it's less than the volume stocked,you could increase the fuel cost and if the volume of the sensor it's bigger of the volume stocked, you could decrease the cost,and write a program for that.

The Dealer of Galileolesky if you see they have a report to treat the volume,and a report of average price of the fuel (http://www.technolog.com.br/?post_type=relatorios),INDICADOR DE PREÇO DE COMBUSTÍVEL.


It's common ERP of industries,have a routine to treat this in the,inventory module.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

The other situation in maintenance, it's take the interval of fuel level between the inspections,with  samples of vehicles of the fleats.Due to diversal situations:Vehicle when they become old they spend more fuel ,there are products wich really generate fuel economy (combine  Low Rolling resistence tires with eletronic engine devices,like the product of Xmetra),or using the product of Xmetra only,payback of maintenance,the only way to do this it's with regular inspection of the samples,and take the interval of fuel level between the inspections.

The portal of transparency of my state have ,a model of Dashboard to do this (http://web.transparencia.pe.gov.br/fisc … -veiculos/)

In the report called posição do estoque was generate  at the date of 4/04/2016 to the date 12/04/2016.The field estoque inicial represents the initial value of the product's of a specific interval,the field entradas was the quantities of values that was added by the invoices,and the field saidas was the quantities that was used in the process,saldo was the result of the product by the movimentation.

The negative unit's of the report ,could happend due to the  selection of the interval (the date).The user should export the  initial value of the quantities of the product's,and the make the appointment of the quantities used.

You could iniatly create a field with the maximum quantities ,and the minimum quantities to the user list (the Dashboard will illustrate better).

I have analysed your last update could be ok for the most of the fleet's.The demand for inventory for parts,could be different due to the fleet's  they buy the part's to do stock,it's not all fleet's wich do this.

The point for fuel could be  intersting (for payback) using with inspection,and select the volume of  the fuel between the inspections,and see the maintenance  by the vehicle (of a sample).Due to the Vehicles when they become old, they spend more fuel.Could be intersting inspect the samples ,not the all vehicles (it's possible do this in fleetrun ,however in  fleetrun the user delete the information, it's ok.With the samples,it's easly control the information,and inspections is something that is important to all companies ,independent of the information system that the companie use,due to in the inspections procedures the companies will indentify the problems).

https://nacfe.org/technology/preventive-maintenance/

My doubt is:The fuel module could guive this information? If you import the volume of fuel to fleetrun,and create a  routine  to group  the maintenance  expenditure of the vehicle by age,could be intersting due to the user could see the fuel consumption and your maintenance cost along the years.

Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

Hi,

I wish to share some drawback and new additions to overcome and make fleet run better.

Usually every manufacturer recommend to follow a certain service plan for each brand or category of vehicles.
A new vehicle will have a 1000kms / one month inspection scheduled after the date of first sale.
Thereafter the service intervals falls like every 1000 Kms inspections, 5K, 10K, 20K, 30K etc and usually name as Lube service, Periodic service, Minor service, major service etc.
In general the service checks contain Visual inspection, Functional check, Realignment, Overhaul, Repairs, Replacement etc.
Lets consider “Visual Inspection” and under this, there are checks done outside the vehicle, called external checks, checks inside vehicle called internal checks and apart from that, inspection in areas like underwood, drivetrain, axles, brakes etc.
When we classify the charges, in Fleet run, there are Labour and Parts only. But it is god to include the following too like, Lubricants (Engine oil, clutch fluid, gear oil, power steering fluid, axle fluid etc), Tires (tires & tubes), Consumables (cleaning materials, cables, connectors, solders etc, Sublet (repairs done by third party like turbo overhaul, alternator repairs, stereo  repair, ECU repair) etc.
When we mention the description (say 1000 Kms Inspection), the description field should be flexible to add add the items for inspection as there will be one Labour charge for all the checks which might take 2-3 hours.
In certain other jobs the price of labour and parts are almost fixed, Eg, Lube service (labour+Parts+Lube), Jobs which are done frequently can be added in the Fleet run very easily and now the challenge is in inputing specific jobs which occur once or twice and will be different for different vehicles (eg Replacing gasket for exhaust manifold). In these cases the transport manager have to add these items before uploading all the cost for the respective vehicle doing a Running repair update.

Regards,
Babu Abraham

1-The first step it's the user register the products in fleetrun,and put the initial quantities of the product's.

2-The second step ,are  the routines wich will increase the quantity of the product's.You could create a routine ,or a checkbox when the user import the invoice of a part,increase the quantity of the product that the user selected.

Re: Ideas regarding Fleetrun enhancement

It's good to see this report of the operational produced by the American Transportation Research Institute at the pages:18,20,21 and 36.This report show the average cost of: Tires,maintenance and fuel of the fleet's.The percentage could be the total spending of the fleet's of the sales,or the individual cost of the trucks (the criteria should be defined by the fleet's).

So you could works with fleetrun well,due to there aren't largest alterations  of these expenditure in the fleet's.And the fleet's use the expenditure of the last year to project the expenditure of the next year.

Yes,due to  the old vehicles   they lost their value (they  depreciating) according their service life  (accounting criteria),the  most common management criteria could be:Age,total kilometer of the vehicle and Engine hours.

Phillype,

I believe it is the main idea of inventory to register parts or other goods that are present for fleet maintenance, for example. The same way as remove them from inventory as soon as they are no longer available.

Thank you for idea about showing in the reports initial quantities, their increase and decrease and etc.
