Dossier Systems goes mobile with new version of fleet maintenance software

dossierDossier Systems, an industry provider of fleet maintenance management software, has released Dossier v6.4, the latest version of its flagship software that is also available on the company’s Dossier On-Demand hosted environment.

The Dossier 6.4 release delivers new features and options including a new communications platform called Dossier Cloud Services, or DCloud, the company says. Among the key new features are Dossier Lite mobile tools for non-maintenance personnel (available on the web, and on IOS and Android), new Work Pending requests and workflow, integration with Zonar Systems, enhancements to Audit Trail and Reporting, and several features which make Dossier more enterprise and finance friendly.

“This release has something for all Dossier users, regardless of their industry,” said Bob Hausler, Dossier Systems’ vice president of marketing and technology. “Dossier 6.4 contains some major features that all current Dossier and Dossier On-Demand customers can begin using immediately.”

The new Work Pending workflow allows work to be requested by drivers, technicians and managers depending on their role and associated security/authority. The Work Pending request can be automatically approved, or require review and approval.

The “Dossier Lite” user function is available to all Dossier users for no additional cost. Dossier 6.4 also brings a new way to send Work Pending requests – via any web browser and with Dossier Mobile Lite for iOS and Android. These native apps make it quick and easy to send a Work Pending item, or update a unit’s meter reading(s) from anywhere, it says. The mobile tools are ideal for drivers who wouldn’t normally have or need a Dossier user license.

“We don’t normally talk about the technology under the hood,” continued Hausler, “but in this case it makes sense because it helps describe the value. In concert with Dossier 6.4, we’re introducing Dossier Cloud Services, or DCloud for short. DCloud manages all communications in and out of Dossier, with a new cloud-based set of services. This makes it easier for us to manage data flow from our partners, for example, telematics and parts providers, to our customers.”
