Fusion Integrations: 3 Ways to Go Beyond Karmak & Automate Your Business
A Look at How Weavik Has Helped Three Commercial Transport Businesses Solve Problems with Fusion Integrations
1. Job Code Standardization What happens when your biggest customer insists you use their non-standard job codes instead of VMRS? Since Fusion only speaks VMRS, you’ll have to translate and enter the non-standard codes manually. Manual entry leads to errors, of course.
One of the companies we’ve worked with nearly lost its biggest contract over this exact issue. This client, a repair shop, serviced a supermarket chain that used proprietary job codes instead of VMRS. After months of challenges, our client got an ultimatum: get Karmak Fusion working with the non-standard codes or get out. So, they called Weavik.
Solution: Automatic VMRS Integration for Karmak Fusion Weavik’s Fusion team built a custom integration that syncs the supermarket’s non-standard job codes with Karmak’s VMRS system. Now, Fusion accepts the non-standard job codes without any problems. It has allowed the shop to keep their best customer and extend the contract for another year. In fact, the supermarket customer was so happy with the results they sent their other suppliers to Weavik as well!
2. Predictive Maintenance
Let’s look at another Weavik client: a semi-trailer rental company drowning in maintenance costs. They needed to keep as much of the fleet on the road as possible while keeping repair costs low. Any change in price or performance can make a huge difference across an entire fleet. So, Weavik helped the client connect Fusion to the client’s maintenance intelligence system, allowing data to flow between the two systems.
Data on work orders, maintenance records, and parts inventory were compiled into an easy-to-read dashboard that updated in real-time. It enabled their team to predict breakdowns, production interruptions, and extra costs in advance, so they could repair units and buy parts ahead of time.
Solution: Predictive Maintenance Integration for Karmak Fusion Fleet maintenance costs dropped almost immediately after this solution was put in place. The team was able to predict breakdowns before they occurred, and they were well prepared to repair the equipment in a timely manner. Today, it’s amazing how much more profit they’re seeing just by reducing downtime and keeping trucks on the road.
The rental fleet is more reliable, which makes their customers happier, too. More and more of their business comes from referrals.
3. Parts and Yard Inventory
Don’t you hate it when OEMs don’t use VMRS on their packaging? You have to dig through VMRS databases to find the right number, then plug it into Fusion by hand. Mistakes happen, and next thing you know, someone’s pulling the wrong part off the shelf for a repair.
If you manage a fleet, you know how important it is to maximize every maintenance dollar spent. Without good data, it’s impossible to assess the performance of specific parts and components at scale. This is another case where Weavik’s Fusion integrations make a huge difference.
Solution: Parts and Yard Inventory Management
Weavik recently developed an integration for another commercial transportation customer to help with parts and inventory management. This integration aggregates data from Fusion and other databases for the purpose of providing performance statistics about specific parts in the client’s inventory.
Using this information, the client is making informed decisions about what components and parts to buy, reducing expenditures on fleet components, and improving fleet performance. Plus, when Fusion integrates seamlessly with inventory management software, tracking parts and yard stock is easy. No more incorrect parts pulled from shelves.
