About Silver Eagle Distributors

Silver Eagle is the largest distributor of Anheuser-Busch products by volume in the nation. The company uses AMCS Fleet Maintenance software and Pocket to maintain its warehouse equipment and an on-road fleet which delivers Budweiser and Bud Light, as well as many other Anheuser-Busch and import brands to the southeast.

An AMCS Fleet Maintenance user since 1995, Silver Eagle added 28 Pocket PCs. According to Ed Pritchard, Silver Eagle’s senior vice president of fleet management and purchasing, the increased efficiency in labor and productivity has been obvious.

Challenge

The Silver Eagle fleet consists of 320 tractors, 368 trailers, 278 vans, 30 pickups, 61 cars, along with various vehicles used to promote product sales and a very large off-road fleet of forklifts, sweepers, and scrubbers.

Before Pocket AMCS Fleet Maintenance, mechanics filled out paper forms. The information was then keyed into the AMCS Fleet Maintenance system, sometimes with copying errors. Some handwritten entries were illegible.

Solution

Pocket AMCS Fleet Maintenance links wirelessly to AMCS Fleet Maintenance software running on the company server.

“In the past, mechanics had to fill out a form and hand-write everything they did on a vehicle,” Pritchard said. “We have templates for Pocket AMCS Fleet Maintenance so when they’re reporting on routine jobs, they only need to press one button and all the information is right there at their fingertips.”

Templates apply to various state inspections and levels of preventative maintenance inspections. The company uses VMRS (Vehicle Maintenance Reporting Standards) for recording and benchmarking maintenance performance.
