The Temeda App 2.2.0 release includes the following major upgrades:

  1. Maintenance 2.0
  2. Video Event Data Recorder 1.0

Maintenance 2.0 Release Notes:

The TeMeDa Maintenance module has been completely reworked to allow for a more flexible and powerful preventive maintenance and repair program. You will be able to create maintenance Plans, Schedules, and Checklists – and track maintenance, repairs, and costs throughout the life-cycle of their assets. The Maintenance 2.0 module will help you avoid unscheduled breakdowns, ensure your assets are always running at their peak performance, and extend the service life of each asset.

  • Schedules – At the highest level, a Maintenance Schedule is a collection of one or more Maintenance Plans. Schedules are not required to track the maintenance of your fleet, but they can simplify collections of complex plans and allow you to visualize the entire maintenance life cycle of your assets.
  • Plans – A maintenance plan is the core unit within the maintenance module. A Plan’s service intervals can be based upon distance traveled (Odometer), Time (days), and/or Engine Hours. A Plan can be configured to use fixed service intervals, which will force the asset to be due on the exact interval – or variable intervals, which will set the next service due at the current odometer/time/hours plus the plan interval. A plan consists of three main components:
    • Service Intervals: One time or recurring Service Intervals
    • Tasks: A checklist of Tasks to be performed at the service interval
    • Assets: A selection of individual assets, groups, or your entire fleet
  • Tasks – Tasks are the smallest unit of work to be performed by the service technician. A Plan can contain many Tasks. An example of a Plan with many tasks is an Oil Change Plan with the following tasks: Change Oil, Replace Oil Filter, Check Air Filter, Check Tire Pressure, Top-off all Fluids.
  • Logs – Maintenance Logs are the service history of your assets. When maintenance is due and a technician has serviced the vehicle and completed the associated Tasks, you can then log that maintenance which will reset the status back to Not Due. You may also Log any unscheduled repairs or services that are not associated with a Maintenance Plan.
  • Status – The Maintenance Status page shows the Due, Overdue, or Not Due status and percent due of each of your assets.
  • Help – The Maintenance Help page provides documentation and videos on how to best utilize the new Maintenance module.
  • Service Details – The Service Details page displays a print-ready PDF overview and checklist of tasks to be performed for a particular asset at a specified service interval.
  • Maintenance Alerts – Standard alerts can be triggered when maintenance is due/overdue for one or more assets. Alerts can trigger notifications via email and/or sms text message.
  • Asset Dashboard’s Maintenance Tab – A new tab is available on the Asset Dashboard to display the up-coming maintenance, service history, and total maintenance costs for an asset.
  • Maintenance Report – A new Maintenance Status Report was added to display the maintenance status of your selected assets. Reports can be run on-demand or scheduled to run on a particular interval.
  • Sharing Maintenance Plans – For customers with account hierarchies, Maintenance plans and schedules can be setup to be shared with their Dealerships and/or Customers.
  • Map/Accordion – The map and accordion has been modified to show a wrench icon when an assets is due or overdue for maintenance. Also, the accordion will display Notification badges when alerts and/or maintenance is triggered for an asset.
  • Accordion – The accordion has been modified to show two additional buttons: “Show on Map”, which will focus the asset on the map, and “History”, which will launch the History Trail page.
  • Existing Maintenance Plans – When Maintenance 2.0 is launched, all existing customer maintenance plans that are enabled will be converted to the new 2.0 format. No action will be required by existing users to enable Maintenance 2.0.

Video Event Data Recorder 1.0 Release Notes:

The TeMeDa App supports Video Event Data Recorder integration. This allows customers the ability to view online from within the TeMeDa App the high definition camera video footage and still images for automated events such as Shock, Harsh Acceleration, Harsh Braking, Harsh Maneuver, and Panic Button.

  • History Trail – When viewing the History Trail of an asset, if there is video footage of a particular event, such as an accident, you can now click a Camera icon to view the camera footage in a video player page. Also, the events filter now allows you to select just Camera events to display on the History Trail map.
  • Video Player – A new video player page will launch when a user requests to view video from a camera. Users may request video footage if only still images were captured for a particular event. Users may also save the .mp4 video or .jpg image files to the user’s local computer.
  • Asset Dashboard’s Camera Tab – For assets configured with cameras, there is a new tab on the Asset Dashboard page which shows all the camera footage over time for a particular asset.
  • Camera Event List – Admin users will now see a new option for “Camera Events” within the Admin menu that will list all camera events and video for your fleet. Camera footage can be filtered by Date/Time or Asset. Admins can add notes to camera events, and flag them using color-coded flags.
  • Request Camera Video – Users will have the ability to capture video from any camera for any timeframe – assuming that the camera has not already re-recorded over the requested timeframe. User requested video will automatically be added to the Camera List view and within the Asset Dashboard camera tab.
  • SmartWitness Camera Alerts – Alerts can now be triggered when a camera senses a Shock, Harsh Acceleration, Harsh Braking, Harsh Maneuver, and/or Panic Button event for one or more assets. Alerts can trigger notifications via email and/or sms text message.
