FMS - Fleet Management System
- Fleet Management System
The Fleet Management System (FMS) is an integrated application that completely manages your company's fleet. FMS keeps track of both your vehicles and your equipment. The flow of FMS is as follows:
>When a vehicle needs service, a Work Order is created.
When work is performed, the time and materials used to service the vehicle are tracked within the work order. The FMS system has clocks that you can use to automatically track your service time.
When parts are used, they are automatically removed from the FMS inventory database. This database is monitored so you are automatically notified of what parts need to be ordered.
Part ordering, purchase order generation and parts receiving is all tracked within FMS.
Once work is finished, invoices can be generated for your customer. It also keeps track of outstanding invoices and account payables.
FMS also tracks vehicle fueling and fuel inventory.
FMS also contains a calendar that you can use to schedule upcoming and reccurring vehicle service.
Some of the key features of the FMS application are:
FMS utilizes a non-proprietary Microsoft Access database. Users will be able to create their own queries, forms and reports if desired. The system can also be integrated with a Microsoft SQL, Oracle or Sybase databases instead of Microsoft Access.
Commonly entered data are provided as defaults to minimize data entry.
Provides an easy to use Windows Interface.
Reports can be previewed to the screen before printed. They can also be filtered or sorted before printing.
Security is implemented throughout the FMS system. Only top level security personnel will be able to change existing transactions.
The FMS system is fast. It will take no longer than 5 seconds to pull up any record in the database, assuming the computer meets the minimum requirements. (See requirement listings under Technical Specifications below).
Technical SpecificationsThe FMS application was developed using Sybase PowerBuilder 10. PowerBuilder is the second leading development tool for Client-Server applications being developed today (Oracle is number one). PowerBuilder can interface with almost any database including Microsoft Access, Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server
The database was developed in Microsoft Access, but the FMS system is database independent. This means that if a City decides to migrate to Oracle or a different database, the application can be modified to the new database by changing just five lines of code.
The FMS application can run on any network that supports Microsoft Windows such as Microsoft 2003 Server or Microsoft 2008 Server. The number of concurrent users will be unlimited.
