Schmitty & Sons Increases Productivity and Reduces Costs with Fleet Management Software

About the Client

Schmitty & Sons has served their local community for over 50 years. They operate a number of divisions including school bus routing, van service, charter transportation, transit operator, and a repair and maintenance division.

The Challenge

Schmitty & Sons needed a cost-effective system that could efficiently meet their needs and accommodate the various departments and services they offer.

The Solution

By implementing Collective Data’s high-end fleet management software solution with enhanced shop management options, Schmitty & Sons has enhanced their ability to provide better, quicker service for customers. The company uses it to manage and schedule all aspects related to maintenance, parts inventory, employee records, customer management and billing.

Schmitty & Sons has taken advantage of the software’s ability to easily assign and track work within the shop. They can designate work more efficiently—the foreman can check for maintenance requests and scheduled work, open work orders, and use the work assignment view to assign work to maintenance technicians. The technicians then receive the work order with all required repairs and clock in and out with each job, which has led to greater productivity.

The software has also allowed Schmitty & Sons to make improvements in how they manage parts inventory. They’re now able to track inventory costs, as well as assign parts to specific equipment using custom reports, ultimately reducing costs.
