Vehicle Odometer Telematics Automation To Improve Data Accuracy & Labour Resource Allocation
The Vehicle Odometer Telematics Automation project was implemented for our customer, one of Australia’s largest natural gas producers. The aim was to automate the transfer of odometer readings from the MiX fleet management system to the Maintenance Connection CMMS.
Automation Impact: Reduce Time-consuming Processes & Data Inaccuracies
Prior to implementing the solution, the meter readings contained in the MiX report were manually entered into the Maintenance Connection asset module. For a fleet of approximately 500 vehicles, this was time-consuming, and inaccuracies were occurring.
The solution was to automate the update of our customer’s fleet of vehicles’ meter reading values in Maintenance Connection. This was done via emails generated by the MiX reporting module.
The automation allowed for the generation of KM-based service schedules, eliminating the need for manual data entry, and reducing inaccuracies caused by human error for the client.
Additionally, the customer’s labour resources were freed up to focus on:
- inspecting vehicles and performing maintenance tasks, resulting in fewer unplanned breakdowns,
- reduced missed services,
- and improved compliance.
