Penske Truck Leasing in North America has implemented a new fully digital and voice-directed truck fleet preventive maintenance system for its fleet of more than 266,000 vehicles.

The truck leasing giants saying the move will improve accuracy and consistency while also reducing and eliminating paperwork, and ensuring documentation and compliance with regulations.

“Our approach uniquely positions Penske to care for and maintain the increasingly complex vehicles on the market today, and the emerging vehicle technologies that will be part of the trucking industry in only a few years,” said Gregg Mangione, senior vice president of maintenance at Penske Truck Leasing.

“We’re putting the technology our technicians need to work smarter and faster right at the point of repair to keep our customers and their businesses moving forward.”

The system in use across Penske’s network of truck fleet maintenance facilities in North America taps into a Wi-Fi network and uses mobile tablet devices for maintenance technicians that are guided by a voice-directed preventive maintenance system.

The system provides voice prompts via a headset to direct maintenance technicians through a preventive maintenance inspection.

“With this solution, workers make fewer errors, have higher job satisfaction rates and are more productive,” said Taylor Smith, president of Honeywell’s Workflow Solutions business.
