SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - June 28, 2012) - Trapeze Group today announced that the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus (BBB) is extending its current Trapeze enterprise system to include a comprehensive transit asset management solution to better track and maintain its fleet.
BBB passengers and employees have been benefiting from Trapeze intelligent transportation systems and back office software solutions for several years. The Trapeze transit EAM solution tracks all functions related to the strategic management of BBB's vehicles and equipment, including preventive maintenance, inspection, and repairs scheduling and management, tracking and analysis of asset-based key performance indicators, and, capture and management of whole life cycle operating costs and statistics (e.g. fuel, oil, licensing, downtime analysis, failure analysis).
The equipment management module is a comprehensive, browser-based enterprise asset management solution capable of tracking an unlimited number of equipment units, components, and sub-components. The EAM module also tracks all of BBB's functions related to the management and maintenance of their transit infrastructure, including stops and stations, offices, maintenance facilities, revenue equipment, communications gear, stationary equipment and/or I.T. assets.

As part of Trapeze's 360 degree vision, the solution can also be integrated with BBB's other reporting applications and data sources.
