PHH Arval has made enhancements to its Preventive Maintenance program, which automatically sends e-mail notifications to fleet drivers when it's time to get work done on their vehicles.

Under the new version, customers can customize e-mail notification intervals, according to their business. For those whose business is seasonal, they can suppress certain preventive maintenance service during the down months.

The company has also updated its reports, which are now more detailed. New reports provide insight into overdue notifications, DOT compliance and overdue preventive maintenance services.

PHH Arval has also made improvements to its Odometer Warehouse capability, which draws information from every transaction that tracks odometers. Now, the capability uses business intelligence that factors in seasonal usage and enables better validation of odometer readings for more accurate forecasts on when preventive maintenance work is due.

For fleets that operate onsite fuel or maintenance facilities, PHH now has the ability to upload odometer readings from these outside sources in bulk.

"These enhancements add even more value to a program that is helping fleets reduce maintenance costs and keep their drivers productively on the road," said Pam Walinski, vice president of customer and vehicle services for PHH Arval.
