HCSS Partners with Diesel Laptops to Improve Productivity in the Shop and Decrease Equipment Downtime

<strong>HCSS Partners with Diesel Laptops to Improve Productivity in the Shop and Decrease Equipment Downtime</strong>

HCSS, an innovative software provider for heavy-civil construction businesses looking to streamline their operations, announces integration with Diesel Laptops, an industry leader in vehicle and equipment efficiency solutions for diesel service facilities. HCSS Telematics and Equipment360 will combine with Diesel Laptops’ proprietary software to decrease equipment downtime and increase productivity for mechanics.

“We’re always looking for high-quality companies to partner with that complement HCSS products and elevate the customer experience,” says Phillip Robinson, Product Manager, Fleet Solutions at HCSS. “Diesel Laptops’ shop efficiency solutions offer additional tools for companies and people that use our fleet systems. This partnership is a great value-add for ownership, shop management, mechanics, and project managers who rely on equipment availability to stay on schedule.”

“Diesel Laptops’ wide range of repair resources, training, and reference tools make it easier for everyone to make repairs faster and more efficient,” says Andy Turnbull, Chief Revenue Officer at Diesel Laptops. “With a labor shortage in nearly every industry, it’s more important than ever to get the job done right and get trucks back on the road. Joining forces with HCSS helps us to better address this disparity so our mutual customers can get greater results from less labor.”

HCSS Equipment360 and HCSS Telematics are tightly integrated. The telematics hardware connects with construction equipment to measure engine health. Fault codes are then sent to Equipment360, which generates repair work orders. With the Diesel Laptops integration, users will now be able to identify an equipment issue, get instructions on how to fix that issue, and instantly access lists of which parts they will need to fix the problem. The HCSS/Diesel Laptops coupling allows mechanics to work faster, finish repairs sooner, and keep projects in projected timetables.

“A mutual customer introduced the two companies,” added Turnbull. “He thought an integration between the solutions would work well. Our customers know what they need.”
