New iCraneTrax Features Simplify Fleet Dispatch and Management

Florida based A1A Software, which develops software and interfaces for the heavy construction industry continues to expand features of iCraneTrax, making the fleet and personnel management software more robust for the needs of equipment rental companies. “iCraneTrax combines sales, dispatch, and fleet maintenance with telematics into one application to more efficiently manage rental company daily operations and increase revenue,” said company president Tawnia Weiss.  iCraneTrax captures complex data from the most sophisticated crane and lifting equipment, then combines various business communications into one tool to improve coordination and communication between sales people, dispatchers, operators, managers, and mechanics.

Quote proposals, service agreements, and dispatch tickets can now be customised, giving users control over which fields to display in the job information, job description, and header sections of printouts. For example, terms and conditions can now be added to the service agreement.  Weiss added that “Two new reports will make life easier for sales people and project managers. The new job pipeline report displays all upcoming jobs and their quote amounts, while the new map report displays appointment, customer, and job locations on a map.” The name of the person who scheduled an appointment can now be added to customer calls reports as well.

The time block feature, which allows users to assign equipment and personnel for a designated time period, assists with payroll and provides more accurate availability of equipment that can be called out on rent. Now default time blocks can be created for standard uses such as labour or equipment runtime, making data entry more efficient. Likewise, it is now possible to specify typical workdays on crane utilization reports. Time blocks can also be displayed in job notification emails and can be optionally added to dispatch tickets.

“iCraneTrax is entirely customisable” said Weiss, “which increases operational efficiencies, productivity, and profits for equipment rental companies. Because it’s web-based, the application is accessible from multiple branches and mobile devices.  Subscriptions for iCraneTrax start at $1250 for five users.
