Garage Management System™ (GMS)

Now you can consolidate data and monitor costs in one system.

With the ARI Garage Management System™ (GMS), we help customers make internal and external maintenance events seem like one.

Multi-faceted Solution

Integrated with ARI’s Web-based fleet management system, ARI insights®, GMS manages technicians, vehicle preventive maintenance (PM) schedules, unscheduled repairs and parts inventories, while simultaneously consolidating all vendor-in/vendor-out data. By using GMS as part of a multi-faceted maintenance strategy, fleets can track vehicle inventory, view vehicle maintenance histories, manage mechanic and shop time, manage parts inventories, effectively schedule bay time for preventative maintenance, log equipment hours and chassis odometer readings, maintain compliance with inspections and regulatory requirements, measure mechanic productivity and more. ARI hosts the GMS application on our clients’ behalf, performing all upgrades and modifications. ARI’s technology call centre staff provides no-cost customer training and technical help for all ARI systems.

Total Data Integration

Our ARI insights® system integrates all in-house maintenance data with vendor-out information to ensure the lowest possible total cost of ownership. By tracking data from internal and external sources, GMS can better control the overall total cost of ownership. This provides better control over labour allocation needs – both immediate and long-term.

Better Control Over Inventory

GMS contains a parts inventory system that adjusts inventory levels as parts are applied to work orders. The system prevents work orders from closing without parts being assigned, ensuring a more accurate accounting for parts usage. When inventory reaches a preset reorder point, GMS automatically pushes parts orders to preferred parts vendors. Scanning and barcode readers ensure enhanced accuracy.

Improved Scheduling

GMS provides high-level summaries and detailed reports on all mechanics’ hours and tasks. Labour efficiency is improved through features such as barcoding of parts and repairs, ATA code look up, quick access to all vehicle repair history (whether service is performed in-house or by an outside vendor), automatic routing of repair approvals, web access, and system help guides.

Productivity & Savings

GMS not only simplifies fleet maintenance, it also allows customers to track all vehicle activity – including new vehicle delivery, licensing renewal, IFTA/IRP, inspections, accident repairs, vehicle replacement and remarketing. As part of a multi-faceted maintenance strategy, GMS will help drive cost savings through a more efficient repair process.

Here’s a few key ways GMS will improve your productivity and lower operating costs:

  • A consolidated, comprehensive vehicle maintenance history eliminates unnecessary repairs and assists in identifying repairs under warranty.
  • Customized reporting allows for proactive identification of cost reduction opportunities and repair trends.
  • Blending multiple systems into GMS eliminates task duplication.
  • Barcode scanning allows technicians to enter parts and labor data into the system quickly and effortlessly.
  • Customized preventive maintenance notification lowers repair costs and increases compliance.
  • Productivity measures offer better time management and control.
  • Benchmarking capabilities allow clients to analyze performance and results both internally and externally.
