Bulk upload functionality for parts within Inventory module

We have introduced a brand new bulk upload functionality within our inventory module so that customers can add/edit their parts effortlessly.

This will save customers time and they can leverage the power of AI which recognizes and organizes the information from parts. This will ensure accuracy and reliability within bulk upload process to ensure data upload is without any errors.

Along with this now we allow to add multiple vendors and locations for a single part to avoid duplicates within inventory.

New Fuel module

We have added a new fuel tracking module enables customers to track fuel usage and costs for your assets, as well as monitor fuel efficiency and identify areas for improvement. This module will help customers to optimize fuel usage and reduce costs while improving overall asset performance.

Customers can bulk upload their fuel transactions using our brand new bulk upload process and view these transactions and critical fuel metrics within Whip Around.

These transactions and fuel metrics can be viewed for the total fleet as well as on an individual asset.

Amount of fuel consumed.

Fuel cost ($)
