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.

“Our records are organized much better with this system. Now all of our forms and maintenance records are stored electronically. As a result, it is much easier to look for specific information and create reports as needed.”

Fleet Management Case Studies

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office

CPSO evaluated numerous software before ultimately choosing Collective Data. They found that some did not provide the essentials of what they were looking for and others were overboard with things that we were never going to use. They decided that Collective Data was the right fit for what we are looking to achieve.

Chatham County Police Department

Collective Data won over the evaluation committee with its focus on law enforcement and its needs and its ease of use. The price was just right, and Collective Data could do everything and more that they needed.

Speedy Transport

Speedy Transit had an entire office filled with filing cabinets, and they were using very basic software with limited reporting capabilities that did not allow them to capture enough details. They were looking for a one stop shop to streamline their maintenance and safety compliance costs in one system.

Colorado State Patrol

The Colorado State Patrol’s (CSP) main mission is to directly support the State Troopers in the form of supplying them with radios, cell phones, and laptops they require for daily operations. As the IT Communications branch of the Colorado State Patrol, they rely heavily on CollectiveData to account for all of their radio equipment issued out to Troopers, as well as Port of Entry Officers for the entire state.

Chandler Police Department

Chandler Police Department has been able to accurately track their inventory without items falling through the cracks, track who has what equipment, when it’s due back for retirement, maintenance or replacement, and set automatic email notifications and reports in order to keep their employees safe without missing anything.

Marion County Public Schools

Marion County Public Schools streamlines their fleet management processes, stays ahead of preventative maintenance and accurately tracks parts inventory and improved technician productivity with time tracking.
