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

So far, I am just gathering info on what I can about my goal, which is have the knowledge to set up a quality maintenance program.

Hello Randy,

 

Thanks for hanging on to this one for me. I have managed to find on line, a Goverment form for Vehicle Inspection Report, that will at least give me a current status of my Assets. I'm still wading my way through a sea of information. Need help in steering of this boat! Take Care.
