Press Release – (Cherryville, North Carolina, January 13, 2009) FleetNet America announces enhancements to their vendor invoice administration and customer reporting platforms. In order to better serve their customers, FleetNet America has fully expanded their usage of VMRS (Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards). This enhancement will allow FleetNet America to apply costs to emergency roadside and preventive maintenance events more precisely across all vehicle types as their business continues to grow into new markets and vehicle types. Customers will benefit through more detailed analysis of their maintenance costs which will give them more control over their expenses.
Oren Summer, President and CEO of FleetNet America states, “VMRS is a coding standard maintained by The Technology and Maintenance Council of the American Trucking Association. It is used to identify and track equipment and continuing maintenance costs; and these codes represent the maintenance standards for the transportation industry. It is most helpful to fleet managers who have the capability of establishing an electronic interface module with FleetNet to electronically feed their existing maintenance software. Essentially with this interface, all costs and control of same can be analyzed from a single database accessible to the fleet. Most major maintenance software firms are licensed to incorporate VMRS codes in their software. VMRS is the proven standard for fleet maintenance providers regardless of size or area of expertise.”
