MRO Software, a provider of strategic asset management solutions, announced
the availability of a focused solution for the transportation industry,
MAXIMO 5 Transportation.
According to the company, MAXIMO 5 Transportation is part of MRO Software's Industry Solution
program. As part of the program, MRO Software is delivering solutions that
address industry specific requirements for its key vertical markets. The
solutions consist of extensions to MAXIMO, integrations to key partner
solutions and licensed best practices.
The company says this tailored vertical solution addresses important requirements for the
transportation and fleet management markets, such as Industry Standard
Codes (VMRS), line code reporting, improved original, extended and
after-market equipment and parts warranty tracking and fuel management
interfaces. This focused offering is designed to provide a strategic asset
management solution that covers assets critical to transportation including
vehicles, rolling stock, infrastructure and facilities.
The new transportation solution is available on MRO Software's proven
MAXIMO 5 platform. The flexibility provided by MAXIMO's Web-based platform
provides a significant cost savings over older, capital-intensive,
client-sever systems and provides the flexibility, security and scalability
required in the transportation industry.
"We selected the MAXIMO Transportation solution as part of our
revolutionary life cycle costing and management program for Detroit's
nearly 500 school buses," said Dale Goby, executive director, office of
student transportation, Detroit Public Schools. "We've developed our own
specific requirements for our maintenance-driven program that will help to
prolong vehicle life cycles and improve safety and performance metrics. We
expect that MAXIMO will be an integral part of our new process to deliver
on our mission of safe, efficient and on-time delivery of eligible Detroit
Public School's students."
"By providing a single solution that covers multiple transportation asset
classes, we're offering a more complete solution that provides visibility
and control across a range of assets," said Johan Arts, director, industry
marketing, MRO Software. "At the same time, MAXIMO has unique capabilities
for specific market segments, such as its networked asset model, that are
key differentiators for transportation customers who need to model linear
assets like rail lines and roadways. With a solid transportation customer
base and a proven solution, we are focused on enhancing our Transportation
capabilities by working closely with our customers."
As part of the Industry Solutions Program for Transportation, MRO Software
is also announcing an expanded partnership with Optram, Inc. ORIM,
Optram's linear asset management system, is the solution of choice for many
MRO Software rail and infrastructure customers.
MRO Software currently provides asset management solutions for 250
transportation customers, including more than 120 fleet customers, and more
than 40 rail and transit customers. Transportation customers worldwide
have seen improved operational efficiency as a result of MAXIMO
implementations. These improvements include greater warranty claims, the
ability to manage more assets with less staff, reduced inventories and a
reduction in the number of capital assets required to meet operations
