TravelCenters of America and Trimble announced a software integration for truck maintenance. Fleets tracking their needed repairs and maintenance in Trimble’s TMT Fleet Maintenance software will now be able to leverage an add-on module to connect and schedule their work order at a TA Truck Service center.
The new direct connection enables collaboration between fleets and the nearly 250 TA Truck Service Centers, allowing fleets to schedule maintenance, track and record service status, access parts and labor records, and create invoices.
Managing the connectivity through TMT Fleet Maintenance can also help eliminate duplicate data entry, result in fewer data entry errors, and provide a more accurate and complete track record of maintenance over the entire lifecycle of a fleet’s equipment. The module extends Trimble’s ability to manage outsourced repairs by facilitating communication between fleet maintenance personnel and TA service locations with respect to scheduling and approval of repair work.
“We’re committed to enhancing the entire travel center experience at TA and are taking steps to improve efficiencies and convenience in all we do. We’re listening to what our guests want, and this integration is a perfect example,” said Brian Lukavich, divisional vice president, TravelCenters of America. “We’ve provided superior service to major fleets for years in our TA Truck Service centers and we’re proud to make our expert technicians even easier to access through this technological advancement.”
The new TMT module with TravelCenters of America is available from Trimble as an add-on to TMT Fleet Maintenance.
