Dossier Adds Features to Fleet Maintenance Software

Posted on April 26, 2017

BURLINGTON, N.J. — Dossier Systems, a supplier of fleet maintenance management software and solutions, released Dossier 6.6 last week at its annual user group conference.

In Dossier 6.6, the latest version of Dossier Systems’ flagship software, the supplier expanded the Dossier Active Alerts notification system. Dossier 6.6 also includes new inspection integration tools for business systems, as well as expanded telematics.

The integration tools include:
•    An automatic import for technician hours data from timekeeping systems such as Kronos.
•    A pre-packaged general accounting export, which groups maintenance cost into standard accounting GL buckets for easier import into business systems.
•    Support for additional Dossier onboard telematics/inspection partners.

“Since the value of the [standard repair time] SRT productivity metrics is the comparison of paid work time to wrench time, the next logical step was to provide a simple, error-free way to get technician paid time data from timekeeping systems in Dossier, so Dossier 6.6 has a new optional importer,” said Bob Hausler, vice president of marketing and technology for Dossier Systems. “We have also enhanced our existing fuel import option to include additional data, for better accountability and auditing.”

“Dossier’s new general accounting export allows Dossier 6.6 to deliver key financial data to business systems,” he added. “We developed a new set of tools to help deliver the right data for finance in a format that doesn’t require them to do a bunch of Excel gymnastics before it’s usable. The new general accounting export packages cost into the most commonly used GL buckets; of course, we can customize it if a client needs something slightly different.”
