FREEPORT, N.Y. — J&J Miles, a commercial truck and school bus inspection, repair, and service facility, has added wireless mobile columns from Stertil-Koni to its shop.
J&J Miles knows a thing or two about how to run a successful operation, particularly after more than nine decades in business. Topping the list is one major factor, said company President John (“JP”) Miles.
“We must deliver exceptional customer service efficiently and quickly — every time.”
That’s why Miles opted to outfit his shop with heavy duty mobile column lifting technology from Stertil-Koni, featuring the ebright Smart Control System.
“The Stertil-Koni mobile column lifts are rugged, dependable, and we can move them around the facility to wherever they are needed,” Miles said. “When we’re really busy, we use them outside and can even wash vehicles on them. Even better, they use wireless technology, which makes life a lot easier, safer, and quicker for our techs, and faster in terms of vehicle servicing.”
J&J Miles now has a staff of 15 technicians, and has grown from a commercial tire provider and truck repair shop to inspecting and servicing school buses. The company also recently became an official U.S. Department of Transportation inspection facility for “yellow dots” (school buses). As a result, it’s not unusual to see 15 to 20 vehicles ready for servicing on any given day.
The ebright Smart Control System “ … features a full-color, 7-inch, touch-screen control console, much like the latest tablet computers,” said Dr. Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni. “In that way, we are able to put all lifting controls directly at the fingertips of the person who needs the information most — the busy tech on [the] shop floor.”
The ebright Smart Control System in use at J&J Miles also features:
• Owner/user-configurable options, including choice of language and personalized ID key to protect against unauthorized use.
• Presentation of all relevant information at a glance.
• The ability to connect up to 32 mobile columns fully synchronized in a single set.
