FTI Group, Inc. today announced that its free truck maintenance tracking software, released one year ago, continues to achieve success in the towing industry and beyond.
“FTI Group has done a significant amount of work in the past year to add new features to the sureFleet system and we just finished planning the feature additions and improvements for 2010,” stated Jeffrey Godwin, Vice President of towPartners. “We are excited to be able to provide a high quality tool to our members for free and are glad to be able to support associations around the country in the process.”
The sureFleet maintenance tracking tool is a basic record keeping application allowing companies to enter maintenance, mileage, fueling and equipment data using the internet and then report on that data from the internet at any time. sureFleet is a free offering from FTI Group and is available to all twoPartners and towPartners program members. Using sureFleet, companies can enter all maintenance performed on their fleet, store all data about fuel purchases and maintain truck equipment lists. This data can then be analyzed with a variety of reports that allow companies to review their costs associated with each truck in their fleet as well as downtime, miles per gallon, operating costs per mile, etc. This data can also be exported for use with a variety of programs. sureFleet also provides notification when services are due, plates are expiring, etc. sureFleet is specifically designed to support the needs of fleets and will help operations to better track and report on fleet repair costs, downtime, frequency, etc.
