Dossier Systems integrates Zonar inspection system

ZonarDossier Systems, a provider of fleet maintenance management software, and Zonar Systems, a fleet telematics provider, announced the integration of Dossier maintenance management software with Zonar’s Electronic Vehicle Inspection Report (EVIR) system and telematics data.

The integration will provide bi-directional information transfer and workflows, eliminating paper forms and associated errors and delays, the company says. Users perform their inspections using Zonar’s electronic inspection system. If an inspection reveals a defect, that defect will automatically create Work Pending items in Dossier.

Once the work is complete or resolved, Dossier will automatically communicate the relevant information back to Zonar to close the loop. The Zonar defect ID is visible in Dossier, and the Dossier Repair Order ID and mechanic name are sent to Zonar.

“The functionality is both fantastic and intuitive in this integration,” said Bob Hausler, Dossier Systems’ vice president of marketing and technology. “You can really hit the ground running, without the need for a lot of special training or changes to workflows. It just works, and it cuts out manual process steps with associated opportunities for error between operations/dispatch and maintenance.”

The telematics integration can also deliver meter readings and Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) information directly to Dossier to drive preventive maintenance scheduling. Both the EVIR and telematics integrations are available as options in the newly released
Dossier version 6.4.
