Managing Vehicle Maintenance From The Palm Of Your Hand

Posted on July 6, 2011

ROSWELL, Ga. — OwnersiteTechnologies, developer of Web-based maintenance-management solutions for small to medium-sized fleets, announced on June 30 the public beta release of its mobile edition, with a target for general availability of Aug. 31. Access to the application will be free for all Ownersite.com subscribers. For more on how Ownersite.com helps operators manage fleet maintenance and save money, click here.

Authorized users will have direct access to the Ownersite.com vehicle records and maintenance-management information for their vehicles through Ownersite Mobile, allowing them to enter data on vehicle servicing (both scheduled and unexpected), fuel purchases, and other information from their smartphones or tablets. Integration with geolocation services reduces data entry for trip logging, fuel, and maintenance stops by automatically capturing the event location.

Ownersite for Fleets, a Web-based solution purpose-built for fleet vehicle maintenance-management, gains new functionality with the release of Ownersite Mobile. Additional features include setting user access policies, automating maintenance alerts to drivers, capturing trouble tickets from the road at the time they occur, and generating mobile reports that show administrators which records are being entered by drivers.

"The mobile solution not only empowers drivers to input data so someone in the back office doesn't have to, it also puts the maintenance schedule and vehicle history in the hands of the driver at all times," said Steve Eppinger, founder of Ownersite Technologies, in a statement. "With this history at hand, they can take better care of the vehicle and make better decisions when faced with maintenance issues on the road, ultimately saving the company time and money."

Ownersite Mobile is available as a native Android app that can be downloaded from the Android Market, and as a website optimized for access by mobile devices such as iPhones, iPads, smartphones and tablets that run Android, Windows 7 and Blackberry OS. Ownersite pricing is tiered based on the number of vehicles, with no additional charge for adding users or access to Ownersite Mobile. Check out a demo of Ownersite here.
