The towFleet maintenance tracking tool is a basic record keeping application allowing towing companies to enter maintenance, mileage, fueling and equipment data using the internet and then report on that data from the internet at any time. towFleet is a free offering from towPartners and is available to all towPartners members. Using towFleet, towing companies can enter all maintenance performed on their fleet, store all data about fuel purchases and maintain truck equipment lists. This data can then be analyzed with a variety of reports that allow companies to review their costs associated with each truck in their fleet as well as downtime, miles per gallon, operating costs per mile, etc. This data can also be exported for use with a variety of programs. towFleet also provides notification when services are due, plates are expiring, etc. towFleet is specifically designed to support the towing industry and will help your towing operations to better track and report on fleet repair costs, downtime, frequency, etc.
The towFleet system includes a dashboard to keep users up to date on services that are coming due on their vehicles. Here users will find fleet alerts and reports and information at a glance. The dashboard is a quick way to see what needs to be done in any managed fleet. This dashboard area also allows users to quickly view information on costs, downtime and mileage without running complete reports.
