Hey Tim,

 

What I'm looking for is a free Maintenance Management Program for my buisness. I have Vehicles and Equipment to be set up on a regular maintenance scedule, as to predict and prevent vs. fix and replace. Everything I have found so far, is someone else, for money, will sell me a maintenance program. I want to develop my own Program!

 

Thanks, Jim
