What Is Heavy Equipment Maintenance Software?
Heavy equipment maintenance software is a place where you can log, track, and manage your equipment. Each bit of equipment will get a digital copy where you’ll be able to log maintenance information as well as the movements and usage data relating to an asset.
There will be an app linking to a web portal, and these two systems will interact with each other. Therefore, if you make a change onsite with your asset tracking app, this change will be reflected on the web portal.
You can then link your physical equipment to its digital profile using asset tags. Then, every time you scan the tag in your asset tracking app, the asset’s profile will open, ready for edits, and the last seen location will also update.
