MedStar has integrated Fleet Genius into the company’s vehicle fleet to provide a new level of automated reporting of vehicle usage metrics and engine diagnostics to reduce the time and expense of collecting that information manually for the 75 vehicles in MedStar’s fleet. The data will be used to automate vehicle maintenance scheduling for all vehicles and will support maintenance metrics including odometer and vehicle mileage, idle time tracking, running time monitoring and reporting of DTCs and MIL status (check engine light).
“We run a 24x7 vehicle fleet with fast turn-around of ambulances when they come back to the service depot” explained James Cogdill, MedStar’s Fleet Manager. “Fleet Genius will help us optimize the time of our team when the vehicles are back at our locations and free them from having to inspect and collect vehicle maintenance information from the vehicle’s computers. This means we can update our maintenance schedules more frequently and detect and repair engine issues more quickly.”
MedStar has implemented the Fleet Genius PRO Export features which enable easy integration with a company’s existing fleet maintenance software systems and enables a higher level of automation of manual systems without requiring a full scale replacement of the existing maintenance software system. MedStar has installed Fleet Genius OBD2 wireless fleet vehicle monitors into each ambulance providing 24x7 visibility into vehicle operations and engine performance.
