Faster & More Productive Equipment: New Equipment, Less Breakdowns, and Better Production Rates

Keeping track of important equipment information is critical to making sure your machines are running properly and efficiently at all times.  Warranty details as well as maintenance and repair history should be available at all times to ensure this.  Being able to service your equipment correctly and on time benefits your company by being able to maintain production rates.  Not only does this satisfy customers, but also gives you an advantage against the competition. 

Yet, it can sometimes be a challenge for employees to understand which information is important and when.  Training employees is not only time consuming, but expensive as well. The common way to store equipment information is in paper format in large (and often disorganized) filing systems.  If something goes wrong with a piece of equipment employees end up having to search through piles of papers for warranty details.  Plus, since it is time consuming to locate repair and maintenance information in a traditional paper filing system, technicians often have to guess when equipment is due for maintenance.  Not only does this create longer equipment downtimes, but it may also require emergency purchasing of parts and equipment- which can be costly.

Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all equipment information on your mobile device.  This app is easy to use and simplifies equipment management and organization.  It can store information such as maintenance history, repair history, and warranty information all in an electronic file format.  Having this information available at your fingertips benefits all aspects of your operations- managers, crews, and equipment.  It allows your employees to be more productive, and also holds them accountable.  Employees and technicians will have access to equipment history at all times.

Sigilo uses Nearfield Communication (NFC) technology to send data between a microchip on your equipment and the smartphone.  It does this completely wirelessly.  After placing a small chip onto equipment, the user simply waves the smartphone over the chip; from there the data is captured in the smartphone, and you are able to edit and save additional information directly in the app.

Having fleet information on a smartphone device has many benefits.  It requires minimal training due to the fact that many employees already know how to use smartphones and tablets.  Sigilo completely eliminates the need for paper equipment records, meaning employees will not have to waste time searching through files for equipment information.  When maintenance, repair, and warranty information is streamlined, then there will be less equipment downtime resulting in better production rates.

Sigilo Fleet Management will significantly change how your company operates- for the better.  Managers will be able to spend less time training employees, and employees will be able to spend more time working.  Diagnosing problems with equipment will no longer be left up to guesswork, and employees will not have to waste productivity by searching for equipment paperwork. Technicians will be able to fix equipment malfunctions quickly and correctly, getting your equipment back up and running sooner.  All of these actions will increase your profits; not only will there will be additional money available for you to be able to invest in new equipment, but it will keep your current equipment functioning at it’s maximum potential.

How does higher sales volume mean reduced costs?

Providing low prices for your customers is an important part of having a competitive pricing structure.  Having lower prices will draw in more customers, which in turn will increase your profits.   Being able to do this relies on your ability to reduce overhead, and increase employee productivity.  Spending less money on overhead means it costs less to do a job.  Increasing employee productivity will allow your crews to complete jobs more quickly; thus, allowing you to take on more jobs and increase your profits.

The cost to your company to complete a job significantly decreases with the use of ETS systems.  ETS provides you with equipment tracking software available on your smartphone.  This is technology that your employees already use and embrace in their personal lives, significantly reducing training costs; employee productivity is increased right from the start.

Forgotten equipment is a major cause for frustration in many companies.  Getting all the way to a job site before realizing you forgot something, and then needing to turn around is a waste of valuable time.  Productivity can be lost when there is not a good system in place to track equipment.  If important equipment goes missing then there is usually no choice but to have employees stop what they are doing to search for them.  It significantly reduces the output of crews, which in turn affects the quality of their work, and the satisfaction of your customers.  You will not be able to complete as many jobs if your employees need to waste time tracking equipment.

Invisi-Tag is an innovative system that provides your crews with an electronic checklist.  The electronic checklist is available on a smartphone or tablet, which many employees already know how to use. With our mobile app, the crew will be able to see all items on the truck before they leave, as well as items that are not there (or are there that aren’t supposed to be).   Senal Geo Tracking is a mobile GPS tracking system available on your smartphone.  It can be used to track any important tool or piece of equipment. Senal’s sensors are constantly working in the background, so you always know where your valuable equipment and machines are.  Crews will no longer lose time on a job from being unable to locate and track critical tools and equipment.

Having to worry about making emergency purchase decisions when your equipment breaks down can be frustrating, and an unnecessary waste of money. This can raise overhead prices, and decrease your output- both of which are events that eliminate your profits. Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all important equipment information that is critical to operations.  It is completely paperless, and allows you to have important information at your fingertips whenever you need it. Sigilo provides all maintenance and repair information, so you can know ahead of time when a piece of equipment is due for repairs.  Sigilo will also increase your employee’s productivity due to the fact that you will not have to spend hours searching for these papers when you need them.  You will no longer have to worry about wasting money on emergency purchase decisions due to lost or malfunctioning equipment.

With our systems in place, gross profit will eventually begin to increase in your company.  Less time is spent checking inventory, searching for equipment, or going back to pick up forgotten equipment.  This means that you save money by not having to pay your crews overtime.  If it costs less for you company to do a job, you can decrease the prices you charge customers.  Being able to offer your customers the lowest prices possible is a way to ensure sales in this economy.
