SWACO has been using the Dossier System since early 2003; the depth of the system’s capabilities enables us to continuously find new ways to incorporate it into our constantly evolving business model. We are able to track so many different facets of our fleet maintenance system, fuel management system and inventory that we have been able to run a much leaner, more productive operation.
We are especially interested in the equipment tracking ability of Dossier. It allows us to see what units are in need of replacement by age, miles, excessive fuel consumption or life cost. This was instrumental in determining which of our trucks we were going to replace with new CNG powered vehicles. The oldest or one with the most miles is not always the right unit to replace and Dossier lets us see that.
