EMDECS overview

What is EMDECS?

EMDECS is a cloud-based fleet maintenance software offered by Perfit Computer Systems Group and is targeted at small, mid-size and large enterprises in a wide range of industry segments.

The software offers features such as preventative maintenance (PM) scheduling, inventory tracking, warranty management and reporting. The product monitors the models that require maximum maintenance, ensures PM jobs are completed on time and helps businesses to get their vehicles on the road faster. EMDECS uses industry standards such as VMRS (Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards) codes from the American Trucking Association for helping technicians to recognize and enter data on repair orders. The product enables the creation of work orders, the assignation of these to technicians and their tracking in real-time using both desktop and mobile devices. The tool also categorizes warranty parts, tracks and sends alerts if a part needs to be replaced and matches invoices to warranty claims. The software can be used for heavy-duty equipment repair and maintenance tracking, rental & leasing tracking, accounting and inventory parts tracking. The product offers reporting capabilities, identifies operational inefficiencies, calculates costs & helps to save money and time.

EMDECS integrates with third-party applications such as QuickBooks and supports multi-location enterprises, counter sales, tire management and purchasing. The software can also be installed on-premises and be can accessed from mobile devices using web apps. Glasvan Great Dane, Turbo Truck Center and BenLea Group are some of EMDECS' listed customers.

Pros
All of the tracking features are amazing! From cost, to maintenance history, to repairs, this software makes it very easy rather than our old paper system.

Cons
The overall performance could be upgraded but from what I have been told, this is currently in the works.

I am very happy with this software. My shop has always been and pen and paper shop, but I needed to get with the times. We chose this product for its easy of use and how quickly my entire shop employees learned how to use the product. Would like to see it have standard repair times in the system already, but as I have been told they are in the middle of getting this done.

There's no real procedure for transitioning into this program, and the program is incomplete with several options that I would have considered basic still missing, these are being added as far as I know but it was pitched to us as a fully functioning system, not a work in progress.

Pros
It seems to be on its way to being a high quality program, but its not there yet and service outages are an all to common occourance

Cons
Transitioning from paper/spreadsheet has been horrific, customer service is nice and they do what they can, but they are kind of clueless, it seems like they weren't given any training and are expected to learn it all on the job, from an outside point of view anyway

This system goes down so often, you never know when you’re not going to be able to access your information.

Their system goes down constantly once for three days with no access to any of our information. This system constantly gets very very slow where you’re unable to work on it because it takes minutes for one page to load. The worst part we specifically asked if it was QuickBooks compatible but we were told it was. You can only merge a very small portion of the information to QuickBooks. We wasted thousands of dollars In labor to get this set up and to use it to find out it has many flaws.

Pros
This system goes down so often, you never know when you’re not going to be able to access your information.

Cons
Very difficult to use. Not QuickBooks compatible as they will tell you it is. Their system goes down constantly once for three days with no access to any of our information
