Bruckner Leasing Company is driving a reduction in downtime and lowering costs with Decisiv Service Relationship Management (SRM)

CHALLENGES

To manage 200 to 250 new cases per day for 900 trucks – at 24 locations, in six states

To improve their ability to manage routine service and repairs without taking significant amounts of time using phones, voicemail, faxes, and email, Bruckner Leasing needed a means of communicating more effectively and efficiently that would help reduce downtime for customers and enhance shop productivity.

Bruckner Leasing viewed constant communication with service locations and customers as the key to a proactive, successful leasing operation. That capability was seen as a way to set its service management approach apart from its competition, ensuring that service events are managed efficiently so customer trucks are up and running as quickly as possible and are ready to drive the asset performance necessary for their success.

SOLUTIONS

Bruckner Leasing Company is using the Decisiv Service Relationship Management (SRM) solution to revolutionize the way it manages service events for all of its leased assets, some 900 trucks across locations in six states.

The Decisiv platform streamlines communication between Bruckner Leasing and the fleets, service locations, and OEMs, and pulls together repair and service information to improve uptime, lower operating costs, and enhance business processes and customer satisfaction.

Bruckner Leasing is using the ASIST™ version of the Decisiv solution, the web-based service management platform developed for Mack Trucks and Volvo Trucks North America, to clearly, accurately, and efficiently communicate and collaborate during service events. Integrated as well are the Mack OneCall™ and Volvo Action Service (VAS) roadside assistance networks.

The Decisiv SRM solution unifies the service supply chain to improve uptime, ensure consistent network-wide service
delivery, create and strengthen customer relationships, reduce warranty and support costs, and lower goodwill expenses. The platform helps address effective service event management by focusing on the four Cs: connectivity, communication, control, and consistency.

“One of the advantages of utilizing the Decisiv platform is that we are more proactive. When we see potential for additional downtime, for example, we’re able to work with the customer and make arrangements for them to be up and running so they can continue to be successful.

For any leasing company, communication is the key; with Decisiv, it is where we see the biggest improvement in our operation, and it’s what really sets us apart from the competition.”

“The upstream and downstream effects that Decisiv has had on our business and our customers’ operations have been beneficial
to everyone. The SRM gives us visibility into our entire fleet. We can look at any event and easily extract data to answer a question that’s being asked. The possibilities with Decisiv are endless.” -Bruckner Leasing

RESULTS

Managing service events more efficiently leads to savings for providers and fleets

Without the Decisiv Service Relationship Management platform, the Bruckner Leasing team could not manage between 200 and 250 new service cases that are opened across its six-state network on a daily basis. Managing service events more efficiently with SRM technology leads to downtime savings for the leasing company’s customers and lower costs for the service provider.

While Bruckner Leasing previously required significant amounts of time to manage a service event using phones, faxes, and email, using Decisiv SRM has led to advantages from a customer and internal communications standpoint.

Here’s another alternative – Bruckner Leasing has seen clear evidence of measurable improvements in its ability to:

  • Boost customer satisfaction and retention
  • Reduce substitute and rental costs
  • Lower operating costs
  • Deliver real-time customer information and data analytics
  • Employ consistent, repeatable, and measurable processes and practices across its entire network

 

The Decisiv SRM solution also benefits Bruckner Leasing by serving as a single source of all maintenance and repair records for its fleet of 900 trucks. The data repository helps prove that the trucks were maintained properly and on time, leading to a higher resale or buy-out value at the end of the lease.
