A healthy fleet of vehicles keeps your business running efficiently. Surprise maintenance can cost you in many ways, whether you need to purchase new parts or risk losing customers as a result of missing jobs. The key to avoiding these expensive problems is to be proactive with vehicle maintenance. Without the right fleet management software, this could be a tough hill to climb. 

 

With a GPS fleet tracking system like Zubie, you can focus your time and energy on more pressing issues, because Zubie Smart Maintenance is the integrated way to track, schedule, and pay for maintenance, saving you 26% on average at more than 25k+ trusted service shops nationwide. Let’s dive into the specifics of how Smart Maintenance saves you time and money. 



How Zubie Smart Maintenance Works

Maintenance Reminders

When you have multiple vehicles on different maintenance cycles, keeping track of repair or service schedules can be painful. With Zubie Smart Maintenance, you will receive OEM reminders to help you plan efficiently for maintenance. Reminders let you know when you need to: 

 

  • Rotate or replace the tires
  • Check or replace the brakes
  • Change the oil
  • Replace the fuel filter
  • Replace the battery

 

On the Spot Diagnostics

Even with scheduled, preventative maintenance, your vehicles may still have unexpected breakdowns or issues. Even more frustrating is not knowing the exact underlying reason for these breakdowns. Zubie Smart Maintenance gives you the answers you need. For example, if the check engine light turns on in one of your vehicles, Zubie Smart Maintenance will alert you via text and include what the code means based on engine diagnostics. This insight gives you the right information to schedule immediate service and get estimates for how long it will take for your vehicle to be fixed. 

 

Online Scheduling

A vehicle has suddenly broken down? You need to schedule a preventative maintenance appointment? Zubie makes scheduling appointments easy by being available online or having a mobile worker schedule for you through the app. You can also pre-set approvals, so if driver knows they need a certain service, you can automatically authorize that service so you don’t need to be bothered to mess with the smaller stuff.

 

Maintenance History and Fleet Health Accounting

Make budgeting and reporting easier with Zubie Smart Maintenance. You can monitor your vehicle’s health by checking reports regularly. These reports include complete fleet maintenance history based on actual invoices. Having a comprehensive look into your entire fleet’s health helps you be proactive and save time and money worrying about whether your vehicles can run efficiently and get to jobs on time.
