STREAMLINE Fuel Bay Operations: AUTOMATED FUEL DISTRIBUTION MANAGEMENT

Operating your fuel bays does come with extra headaches: added maintenance, environmental compliance issues, concern for theft, and others. Still, when your public transit fleet consumes fuel by the millions of gallons, the savings accrued by purchasing fuel in bulk make it worth your while.

Whether you operate 1 or 100's of sites, SM2 unburdens you of associated management chores, putting you firmly in control of in-house fueling. And any of our clients will tell you it does this with high levels of automation and reliability.

  • Speed up operations with a fueling sequence precisely tailored to public transit fleets: a long-range reader automatically ID's the bus, at which point all compatible reels are unlocked—fuel, engine oil, windshield washer, etc.—SM2 records all quantities dispensed in a single transaction. Also, attendants can key-in inspection codes as the bus is being serviced.
  • Automatically capture error-free engine data: Say goodbye to data entry errors and missed maintenance work. SM2 automatically captures bus data—distance traveled, odometer, fault codes, etc.—and feeds them to your maintenance management system.
  • Reduce fuel costs: SM2 controls access to your dispensers 24/7. You get accountability for every drop dispensed with accurate records of where, when, and who dispenses fuel to which bus/vehicle. SM2 will even track fuel dispensed to jerrycans!
  • Never run out of fuel on the road: SM2 has a plethora of reports and notifications specifically designed to ensure that no bus goes out without a full tank. You thus avoid costly out-of-fuel events, improve service, and maintain your good reputation.

All fluids Accounted For: Automatic Service Bay Management

Tracking fuel consumption is important, but it's not the whole story. A fleet of buses consumes considerable quantities of other fluids: engine oil, antifreeze, windshield washer, etc. Do you record and control distribution of those consumables in your service bay(s), or is it an open bar scenario?

Beyond minimizing potential fraud, managing all those hose reels is important in order to assess the cost of ownership of each bus. Consumption tracking for each fluid can also help detect potential problems/defects with any given bus.

  • Plug a hole in your inventory reconciliation: products pumped in your service bays really add up. Track all of it and accurately attribute to each bus its own consumption with SM2's service bay transactions management.  
  • Create better maintenance plans: tracking  products consumed at service bays enables you to deeply optimize your maintenance plans, as you now have at your disposal previously  unavailable maintenance triggers.
  • Complete the cost picture: SM2's tracking of auxiliary fluids and labor at service bays complements the system's fuel and maintenance management modules. What you get is the complete picture of the cost of ownership for each bus. 

ACCOUNT FOR EVERY DROP: AUTOMATED Fluids INVENTORY MANAGEMENT

Any organization with in-house fueling must keep a close eye on their inventories. What sets the public transit sector apart is the large quantities of other fluids it consumes while operating its fleets. 

Leading edge fluids management technology is how we got our start 30 years ago in the public transit industry and we haven't stopped leading the way since.

Our highly automated fluids management system guarantees you can account for every drop with extreme precision and less time: finance people are happy, environmental compliance people are happy, and your ridership is happy.

  • Eliminate shrinkage: SM2's unique reconciliation technology captures all the data necessary to match inventories to deliveries and consumption with extreme accuracy. And it's fully automated so you can get daily reconciliation reports, catching shrinkage early and nipping it in the bud.
  • Never worry about environmental compliance: get the peace of mind that comes with accurate record keeping not reliant on human intervention. SM2 will even produce compliance reports in the exact format mandated by relevant agencies.
  • Save hundreds of thousands in potential cleanup and reputational costs: with your storage tanks monitored 24/7, any leak triggers instant notifications—or even action via web service execution. Fix small problems before they turn into big ones.
  • Order products at just the right time: SM2 will detect when a storage tank has reached the reorder level. It can then automatically notify the relevant people, including your suppliers, for timely delivery.

EXTEND YOUR VEHICLES' USEFUL LIFE THROUGH EXPERT FLEET MAINTENANCE MANAGEMENT

Frozen or stagnant budgets mean a scarcity of funds for bus replacement. Add to this the rising cost of operating any fleet, and we begin to grasp the challenges you face as a fleet manager in the public transit sector.

And yet, a smoothly running fleet is essential to road safety and to providing the services your ridership relies on day in, day out. It's thus more important than ever for you to execute a capable preventive fleet maintenance program as a means to extend your vehicles' useful life safely, and cost effectively.

Transit fleet managers use SM2 to streamline all aspects of maintenance management, achieving a finely tuned mass transit fleet, ever ready to serve.

  • Make smarter decisions. SM2 tracks all labor and material costs related to maintenance. This enables you to pinpoint the best time to replace a unit, and which makes & models you should purchase based on usage and cost of ownership.  
  • Avoid "junk in - junk out": SM2 can automatically capture engine data. Maintenance plan notifications are thus triggered automatically based on accurate and timely information. 
  • Put the brakes on costs: track parts and labor consumed with detailed work order management; maximize warranty recovery with traceable part numbers; tame the scourge of shrinkage by easily reconciling inventory to consumption.
  • Spend time on what matters. You have better things to do than wrestle with heavy, complicated software interfaces. Creating and managing work orders & maintenance plans in SM2 is as straightforward and user-friendly as it gets. 

Access Control and Time Tracking

You may not have personnel dedicated to controlling access to your yard(s) and assets. And even if you do, security staff cannot manage certain important elements. For instance whether or not a vehicle exiting the premises is due for critical maintenance work. 

Controlling the ins and outs of your facilities ensures that only authorized personnel can access your yard(s) and building(s). It also enables you to restrict access to different zones based on employee qualifications, security clearance, and preconfigured schedules and holidays.

As important: since SM2 fully and seamlessly integrates access control with fleet maintenance management, you can make sure vehicles with overdue critical maintenance stay off the road. This is crucial to ensuring your drivers' safety and others' on the road, and minimizing insurance costs and liability. 

  • Keep premises and specific zones secure: SM2 can be configured to restrict access to specific areas in order to protect valuable equipment, sensitive information, etc.
  • Minimize shrinkage and theft: restrict access to stock, parts, expensive tools, etc., thus tightening your inventory management.
  • Ensure the safety of employees and others on the road: with SM2, you can automatically control exits from the yard based each vehicle's maintenance status, driver qualification/authorization to operate the unit, whether the vehicle is scheduled for offsite work, and many other parameters.
  • Keep track of attendance and hours worked with SM2's electronic punch clock. Feed this data easily to your payroll system.
