Ankeny, IA – March 17, 2010 – Maintenance Book is a customizable maintenance tracking web application from KerberTech that gives fleet and equipment managers a comprehensive and economical way to record and retrieve service and repair information. A recent study shows that most organizations prefer Maintenance Book to their existing maintenance management systems.

Maintenance Book was created to provide businesses and agencies of all types and sizes an efficient way to keep their valuable inventory in peak condition and, as applicable, to realize a higher resale value when those capital items are retired. It provides the ability to log preventive maintenance and repair activities for an organization’s vehicles and other equipment. It indicates when a service is due (or past due) and can generate a comprehensive report detailing the entire maintenance history of a given piece of equipment.

The first public announcement of Maintenance Book came at the EntreFest! entrepreneurship conference in West Des Moines, IA on February 25th, 2010 where KerberTech’s owner and president, Jake Kerber, spoke about the new maintenance tracking application and the benefits of market research.
