Data Dis Inc., a software technology provider, announced its software integration with PeopleNet, an onboard computing and carrier fleet communications provider. Data Dis says its MIR-RT (Maintenance Inspection Reporting in Real Time) is a CMMS system for fleet maintenance and enterprise asset lifecycle management and is the company’s core technology offering.

Designed for optimized maintenance management, MIR-RT is a centralized information system for scheduling, managing, analyzing and reporting on all aspects of maintenance, including preventive maintenance, work orders, maintenance requests, inventory, barcode and predictive maintenance. The dashboard in MIR provides management the means to make more informed decisions quicker based on accurate real-time information.

Data Dis says that with the added integration to PeopleNet, service points are realized more accurately:
• Daily odometer readings will be sent automatically via PeopleNet to the MIR-RT fleet maintenance software system to facilitate the advancement of service points;
• Drivers doing a pretrip inspection using a report in the PeopleNet solution will have their data sent to MIR-RT, where inspection faults will be recorded, facilitating compliancy and regulation;
• Driver message repair notes will be sent automatically to MiR so that they can be managed in planning, and repairs can be scheduled quicker by shop management; and
• Engine codes will be sent via PeopleNet and recorded in MIR as a fault note to be viewed in the MIR-RT planning module for follow up or service scheduling.

“Not only will the integrated communication solution provide an innovative compound process improvement system for our customers, MIR-RT’s integration with PeopleNet will provide the electronic pretrip-to-work order link that so many companies are asking for,” says Marc Blackburn, president of Data Dis. “The integration will allow a quick transfer of back-and-forth data, providing more efficient, simplified communication. This will allow management to easily see issues as they arise, enabling them to prioritize repairs and get vehicles back on the road quickly.”

Data Dis says the data analysis tools in MIR-RT enable fleet managers and maintenance supervisors to improve transparency and control, increase automation and productivity and improve resource deployment, purchasing efficiency and claims recovery while complying with safety regulations better. It also helps them decrease costs, risk and inventory; increase their return on asset investment; and better manage the total cost of operating their fleet.
