Arsenault Associates, provider of Dossier fleet maintenance management software solutions, announced today, July 10, a revision to its user license pricing structure to make its fuel- and cost-saving Dossier technology affordable for small fleets with as few as 10 units.
“Over the past 30 years, we’ve served thousands of fleets in a broad array of industries,” says Charles Arsenault, chief executive officer of Burlington, N.J.-based Arsenault Associates. “For the most part, they have been mid- to large-size fleets with sophisticated data needs. Small fleet operators make up the bulk of America’s fleets and face the same issues as do large ones. Yet, industrial-grade fleet software has not been affordable for this market.”
The company says the new graduated licensing structure affords a small fleet to use the automated power of Dossier to manage its fleet assets, including equipment specifications, automated PM scheduling, license and permit renewals, fuel cost and cost per mile with gallon consumption and mpg management, repair order production with full maintenance history access, expense management of parts, labor and fixed costs with cost per mile or hour, equipment utilization, warranty tracking, control of work pending, manufacturer recalls and service campaign tracking, and full Department of Transportation maintenance documentation management.
Dossier also includes automated downtime tracking, fleet budget management, operational and cost benchmarking, equipment labeling and program access security, according to the company. “With fuel costs out of control and an economy that is challenging their very survival, as the leader in our field, we felt compelled to find a way to help the tens of thousands of America’s small fleets deal with their fleet management issues, just as we have traditionally done for our larger fleet customers,” Arsenault says.
As a small fleet’s needs grow over time, its Dossier program can be upgraded to add automated management of parts inventory, personnel, supply and service vendors, tires, outside customers, numerous interfaces with external services and data providers, and wireless data entry technologies, the company says; these upgrades/expansions are seamless and happen without loss of any data or history.
Arsenault Associates says the new scaled-down Dossier licensing structure is available for installed software that is run on PCs and Networks, and it also can be rented inexpensively as an ASP service over the Internet.
