Vehicle Ordering Software

 

Vehicle Ordering Software

 

Hello All,

 

SCE is gathering information regarding a Vehicle Ordering Software.  We'd like to know if other organizations are utilizing a vehicle ordering software to manage their fleet.  Please respond if any of the topics listed are applicable.

 

·    Is the software customized, provided as a service, or from a canned program? 

·    If purchased ‘off the shelf’, what is the name of the application, and where is it available? vendor, online, etc.

·    Do vendors collaborate in the software in relation to change orders and delivery dates?

·    Is it linked to ERP applications, specifically SAP, in the Enterprise Asset Management(EAM) module?

 

Thanks for taking the time provide your input.  Your feedback is greatly appreciated!!

"We do use a special ordering system. We call it EOS or Engineering Ordering System. It has interfaces to several other systems including SAP. We would be happy to share more info if needed."

"We attempted to build and on-line ordering system within Oracle. However, the system was too cumbersome and the project fell through. We are still ordering fleet with paper generated specifications."

Entergy has a fleet asset automated request and approval process called FAARS.  It is a custom system that was developed in house and is not linked to SAP.  It is linked to our Fleet Management pedigree and maintenance management system.
