"It empowers management with the information needed to improve light vehicle operations to lower maintenance costs from damage, reduce unplanned maintenance and deliver an overall safer operation.

"Clients wanted more specific information about their machines and components in order to streamline efficiencies. Having all the machines operating at optimal performance ensures this is achieved. The Service Monitor is a game-changer. Instead of purchasing multiple meters to monitor specific component and machine hours, you can just buy the one to do the job."
