Fuel, fluid management

Multi-Pump allows management to precisely track and document the usage of every fluid, including fuel, engine oil, transmission fluid and hydraulic fluid, for each individual vehicle and equipment unit in the fleet. A wireless, paperless, "hands-free" technology that IDs each vehicle, its location, and the fluids dispensed to it, Multi-Pump has a GPS antenna and a radio antenna. GPS coordinates are stamped into the record as hour data is collected. Information is gathered passively, within a range of 300 ft. line-of-sight, and transmitted via secure radio link. After dispensing, an OEM DD "GoPOD" unit, captures equipment hours, mileage and gallons dispensed. Captured information can then be accessed via email or password-protected web reports. Data can also be integrated into all major back office management systems through OEM Data Delivery's Integrator Middleware.

Multi-Pump also allows both job estimating and job costing, making it far more accurate, thanks to precise operations data. It is a valuable tool for monitoring the health and performance of equipment, since consumption spikes when maintenance attention is needed. It will also generate custom service alerts, so maintenance can be scheduled when it’s most advantageous and over-servicing can be avoided. Multi-Pump maintains individual vehicle histories and facilitates important calculations and analyses.

Multi-Pump installs on any fuel, lube or pickup truck, or on fuel stations or remote bulk tanks. There are security options for employee and/or equipment approval. This system is the newest addition to OEM DD Telematics, a comprehensive suite of jobsite management products. — OEM Data Delivery, www.oemdd.com
