Los Alamos County Implements New Fleet Tracking Solution

March 18, 2010

LOS ALAMOS, NM - The County of Los Alamos has contracted AssetWorks for fleet management software, implementation, and hosting services deployment. With a new fleet maintenance facility coming on line this spring, the Fleet Division wanted user-friendly tools to better maintain its fleet, including real-time labor capture, robust reporting capabilities, and complete vehicle equipment lifecycle management.

"Los Alamos County is excited to implement AssetWorks FleetFocus which will allow us to improve our reporting capabilities, increase and track productivity, and track life-cycle maintenance costs," said Marina Wells, fleet division manager for the county.

The County of Los Alamos Fleet Management Division is responsible for purchasing and maintenance of all county equipment, the county's Radio Communication system, maintaining the fueling system, and providing fuel for Los Alamos County and Los Alamos Public Schools. Additionally, the Fleet Division maintains the fleet for Atomic City Transit buses and para-transit units which serve the towns of Los Alamos and White Rock with a downtown trolley and neighborhood routes.

FleetFocus tracks all functions related to the maintenance of equipment, including repair and preventive maintenance (PM) work orders, operating expenses (e.g., fuel, oil, and licensing), and billing for equipment usage. FleetFocus also supports shop scheduling, replacement analysis, equipment and replacement planning, and full parts inventory functionality.

The county chose a hosted solution whereby AssetWorks manages the servers, database, and software application at its hosting services center. The company provides hosted services for more than 40 of its over 450 fleet maintenance software customers, including the ICE/U.S. Border Patrol, the County of San Diego, Greyhound Bus, and many other fleet operations in North America.
