Fleetio adds VMRS coding to amplify maintenance categorization
We're excited to announce that Fleetio has introduced VMRS (Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards) coding to strengthen and standardize the way you categorize maintenance data. We have added five VMRS code keys to unlock deep insight into trends within your maintenance data, in an easily accessible way for any fleet.
You can now use VMRS codes to categorize your Work Orders and Service Entries on both web and Fleetio Go. Fleetio has preloaded VMRS categorization to all Standard Service Tasks, and now allows you to set default categorization for your Custom Service Tasks as well. Setting default VMRS codes for your Service Tasks will automatically apply that categorization to Work Order and Service Entry line items when used. You can also categorize your line items manually on the fly.
To ensure you can gain insight from categorizing your maintenance data, we’ve introduced two brand-new reports. The Line Item Summary by Vehicle System Report and Repair Priority Class Summary Report. These reports will help you identify the most costly and frequently repaired systems within your assets, as well as how often your services are scheduled vs. non-scheduled.
Let’s take a look at exactly how these VMRS categorization codes break down:
- Reason for Repair (Code Key 14): Reason for Repair describes the reasons why work was performed on an asset - such as Preventive Maintenance, a Breakdown, or an Accident. Apply a Reason for Repair code to Work Order and Service Entry line items for a more granular understanding of your maintenance spend.
- Repair Priority Class (Code Key 16): Repair Priority Class indicates whether a service was Scheduled, Non-Scheduled, or an Emergency repair. Apply a Repair Priority Class to your Work Orders and Service Entries to better understand what is driving costly non-scheduled repairs.
- System (Code Key 31): System codes identify the specific system involved in a repair. For example, the Brake System.
- Assembly (Code Key 32): Assembly codes further define System codes for another level of categorization. For example, Front Brakes.
- Component (Code Key 33): Component codes further define Assembly codes down to the individual part level. For example, the Front Brake Rotor.
With VMRS data categorization codes, you can now easily categorize and track your vehicle maintenance and repair data. This will help you stay organized and better track your fleet's maintenance needs.
