Assets Management
Control and Visibility Assets

The TOTAMS Integrated Platform including the functional modules of TOTAMS (Assets, People, Operations, Logistics and Finance) enables total control and visibility of all Assets and People and related activities and transactions.

TOTAMS delivers integrated management information for real-time decision making, and Pro-active Management and the result is: Everything Simplified.

This is achieved on four functional levels

  1. Workflows and Business Rules

    Intelligent use of work flows and business rules is the foundation of integrating and sharing information between the TOTAMS modules.

    Real-time analysis and processing of transactional data input when entered ensures automated events, notifications and alerts which are escalated to the appropriate recipients for action.

  2. Dashboards

    The TOTAMS Home Screen is the management dashboard for any platform user. Here a user has the ability to take direct action for any required activities and/or drill-down into information as required. Events, notifications and alerts are generated and displayed here, and will remain on this screen unless appropriate action is taken by the relevant person, e.g. acknowledging an alert, executing a task related to an event or notification.

    TOTAMS also has several BI (business intelligence) reporting dashboards that can be configured according to specific user requirements Ė e.g. Budgets vs Actual Expenditure, Production performance, Operations, Financial etc.

  3. Reports

    The TOTAMS platform includes a range of ďstandardĒ reports for administrative, operations and management reporting across all platform modules in table and or graph format. Users are able to generate reports for a wide range of selection and/or filtering criteria, e.g. individual or groups of assets or persons, asset types, transaction types, user selected date ranges etc.

    The reports can be customised for specific user requirements and/or additional bespoke reports can be built and included for users of the TOTAMS platform.

  4. Third Party Interfacing

    TOTAMS was designed and developed with ďopen architectureĒ data structures, specifically to allow for easy 3rd party interfacing and bi-directional data sharing between TOTAMS and external applications and their data sources.

    This allows for integration between business functions, and examples include:

    • for Invoices and Purchase Orders generated in TOTAMS are shared with financial system (e.g. Sage Evolution) to generate official financial documents from the financial system.
    • Fleet statements from banks are received in electronic format (e.g. text or MS-Excel) and can be directly imported into TOTAMS.

    Although TOTAMS already boasts with interfacing to several applications and other data sources, we can interface with almost any ERP, WMS and Telematics or other 3rd party application that facilitates data sharing.
