An ongo­ing sur­vey by Arse­nault Asso­ciates indi­cates that 56% of fleets that employ main­te­nance soft­ware use it first and fore­most to auto­mate pre­ven­tive main­te­nance sched­ul­ing. The sur­vey also not­ed slight­ly few­er than 44% of all fleets use soft­ware specif­i­cal­ly designed for fleet main­te­nance, the only type of soft­ware capa­ble of ful­ly automat­ing com­pli­cat­ed pre­ven­tive main­te­nance ser­vice sched­ul­ing. 33% still use paper main­te­nance records if they keep records at all. More than 200 fleet exec­u­tives, man­agers, and line staff have tak­en part thus far.
