What are Meters?


Certain types of equipment and assets demand meticulous monitoring of metrics such as PSI, gallons, miles, and more to ensure their optimal functioning. This is where Meters come into play. Meters can be established and associated with Work Orders, enabling workers to regularly update readings, thereby maintaining accurate records of equipment performance. πŸ“ŠπŸ”§πŸššπŸ­

An Example

The admin or technician will create a fuel meter for a truck to track fuel levels for refueling. They will set a Meter Trigger to create a Work Order when the fuel falls below a specified level. A Preventive Maintenance Trigger can be set to manually check the fuel tank and update the meter. This ensures fuel levels are monitored directly from the Upkeep account.
