Pros: One really great service all together. I have worked with many fleet management products with many different clients and companies. For folks who which to cut out the middle man and be more incharge of there own fleet management software then this is a great product. This product has only a one time fee. You have the capability to use this product through the Cloud, as a SaaS, or on the Web, or have it installed in Windows. This gives you great capabilities. Plus you do have many of the great features that we all look for: Accident Tracking, GPS Integration, Driver Management, Fuel Management, Inspection Management, Inventory Management, Maintenance Scheduling, Maintenance Tracking, Vehicle Tracking, and so much more. I highly recommend this product for the folks that don't mind taking charge of there own software product and cutting out the middleman.

Cons: Like many great products that require you to cut out the middle man there will always be a few cons. But the only areas that I could find would be areas to store information such as pulling up vehicle by vin. #, license plate or registration #.
Would like to be able to toggle between screens without having to exit a particular section.

Comments: As with many products, there's pros and cons. The pros with RTA largely outweigh the cons. They have great customer support. Their turnover rate is low so you end up talking to the same people, and when you call you get a friendly voice not an automated system. Its not a one size fits all solution, they will fit it to your business. They will customize if you want. It doesn't come with a huge price tag that says "no changes allowed". Their 7.0 product will help them be a lot more competitive with the big players, it puts them right up to the top. Between the price and what you get, I would use and suggest RTA time and time again. They continually update, improve and expand their product. They listen to your suggestions. There were many times we asked for something and they ending up delivering those "wish list" items. With any large software system, there are screens and fields that some business' dont end up using, such is with software. I use about 25% of all the functions of Microsoft Word. Their reporting was/is outdated, but they are aggressively making changes to it and improving it. I remember the reason our company went with RTA was the customer support, the willingness of the management to meet and talk with us, and their flexibility to our requests of expanding their product to fit our needs.

Comments: Customer service is RTA┬┐s number one asset in my opinion. They listen to their users and customers to determine what it is they need, and then they incorporate those ideas into the RTA Fleet Management software.
We have been using the RTA Fleet Management software since 1991. We use the vehicle, parts, tires, purchase orders, and fuel module extensively and have dabbled with the motor pool and tool modules. We are on Paperless Shop and are also a "hosted" system. The software is very user friendly and customizable to fit our needs and there have been many success stories along the way about how the software has speeded up a process for us, provided reliable costs that were defendable, or kept the auditors at bay because the process was seamless.
I would recommend RTA to anyone that is interested in an excellent fleet management software.

Comments: We have used RTA over 8 years now, It has been one of the easiest Fleet Maintenance Programs that I have Used. We have used 3 others before RTA, and they were just hard to operate in. The simplicity of RTA is beyond compare, I have been in the Fleet Bus, for 14+ years, and have used the Mgr. functions and also the Parts and Tech functions many times, and it has been a very useful tool, for our Government fleet. Customer service, is the best I have ever seen, I have not had any issue with them fixing any problem I have had, the call back time is always very short, and always gets me up and running quickly. I also enjoy the training from RTA, at their facility, and the expertise is extremely well done. So if you are looking to upgrade to another Fleet Program, I would advise to use RTA Fleet Program, and use their expertise, as they always treat everybody like family, and will do everything they can to bring it all together.

Comments: I have only been using RTA for one year, there are a lot I like about RTA and of course I'm still learning the system and processes along with cleaning up a huge mess left behind by my predecessor where they had been using RTA since 2007. It's hard to list what I like about RTA because those areas work easy and I don't think about them, its the problem areas I find I remember of course. The main issues I have is I run a bus fleet and the main aspect of RTA is trucking so there are gaps in areas that just don't cover items that I have on the bus fleet and may items that deal with trucks and trucking that will never pertain to my fleet. I am constantly having to jump from screen to screens, looking for items and I have to close the area I was just in and when I come back to that area I have to start over from the beginning. I know some of this is me not knowing how to use what I have in RTA and some may not. I like RTA and hope the sometime in the near future with all your staffs help that I will have it all cleaned up and working the best it can be for my fleet.

Comments: Do wish it was more mobile, more compatible with other applications to cross data streams, for example: payroll, mileage, etc.

When numbers are transposed that it would automatically sync and flag, we have a lot of redundancy due to this?

Comments: Reports are cumbersome, I have a hard time finding the reports I need and without Crystal, some don't seem to be available at all. The relation ship between Paperless shop and full RTA is difficult they don't always behave in the same way and interfere with one another. The fact that 2 or more Techs can't be on the same job without opening a second line is also awkward.

Comments: First I would like to say that 4 years ago I did not like the system and was looking at others system out there. I went to a conference but in San Diego and learned a lot. Since then I have been working with the system and with the Tech. had on site training and it is looking great. The support I get when calling in is second to none and I do really feel the tight family bond that if formed with RTA and the users. I was told this at the conference when I had met the crew but as the years went buy you do feel it. Just wanted to say thanks for that and keep up the great work. Would like to see in the all the fields when a note is put into the system that the notes pad would turn a different color this would make it a lot easier to spot. Thanks again

Thanks Michael! You should be able to look up your vehicles using those fields. If you don't mind, I'll have one of our customer service fanatics give you a call to see if there is something we are missing. And keep an eye out for 7.0 next year, when the ability to have multiple screens up at once comes to the system!

Comments: We started with RTA in 2004/2005. Coming from a basic fleet software program into a manageable program with endless possibilities to expand was very exciting for us. RTA has grown with our fleet and allowed numerous avenues to captures saving and defaults within our own processes not previously recognized.
We continue to expand our fleet and RTA is able to offer technologies and opportunities that have made our fleet software provider choice a no brainier.

PROGRAM CAN BE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE AT TIMES. WISH THERE WAS A "BACK" BUTTON INSTEAD OF HAVING TO EXIT TO THE BEGINING AND START ALL OVER. THIS WOULD ESPECIALLY BE HELPFUL IN THE PARTS SCREEN.

Comments: I have been involved in various IT projects for fifteen years and this was by far the best. The team was personable, prepared, and intelligent about the product. Our RTA install was upgraded to the current version and moved to the cloud version so quickly that our users did not miss two hours of system availability! Your people all understood the working of your program; from Sales to Service. Everyone gave us tips on how to get more out of the system. Follow up calls were made to make sure everything was working. Not a single complaint on our side and frankly RTA exceeded every expectation!

Comments: We have been using the software for about 10 years. I put a lot of study in selecting a fleet software system before we made our commitment to RTA and I'm really glad that I did. RTA has been a vital and comprehensive tool in managing our fleet of about 250. Customer service and RTA training has been the biggest part of our success. The staff at RTA makes a good product great! We plan to expand the use of RTA to include facilities, properties and other assets. I am very happy to endorse this great product and the support team behind it.

Comments: I have used a number of Garage Operating Software systems and RTA is the best I have used.
We interface our fueling system and this gives us mileages for scheduling pm's and accurate tracking of fuel consumption.
Parts file is fantastic with many options on tracking parts usage, cost, cores, vendors.

Support is the best I have ever experienced. Normally problems are resolved same day, great support staff. If I have special needs they are great at solutions.
Highly recommend this system for Fleets.

Comments: RTA is a good garage product. We need a product that works in both the garage and warehouse maintenance areas. The fact that we have been told that version 7.0 would be ready in a few months, for the last three years, doesn't put a good face on your company. I look forward to seeing this in the spring.

Vendor Response

by Ron Turley Associates on November 04, 2014

Mike, as always, we appreciate your honesty. As you know, our 7.0 product has faced a lot of delays overwhelmingly due to us choosing to satisfy the demand for custom interfaces and projects. Thankfully many of these were able to be included in our general releases, but in March 2014 we made an unprecedented change in our focus in order to make 7.0 a priority this year. We look forward to shipping it to you this spring!

Comments: Our application runs on citrix with windows 2008R2 and sql server 2008.
We manage separate garage and warehouse environments.
Pro: The app provides all of the components we need related to maintenance and management of our fleet. The support we receive is excellent.
Con: The database indexes are difficult to manage since the are flat files outside of the database server. The reporting could be more robust in terms of formats and output.
The app environment itself could be more user friendly as it relates to navigation and quick-path options.

Comments: RTA has been valuable to Coborns Inc allowing us to track history of all shop and eqquipment movement. With this tool we have been able to track and trace any decreptencies for our fleet as well as our Technicians. Keeping these items in check have saved us money as well as time in the tracking of all associated shop and equipment activities. RTA has also been very responsive to our company needs as well as effective and timely with problems that may arise. RTA customer support is second to none compared to the other company that we have support with. GO RTA!!!!

Pros: The RTA team has been very responsive when we have had a problem with the system to make sure we understand any enhancements or work with our IT team to get any problems straightened out

Cons: The new modules are taking longer than expected. Once the modules are completed or loaded, we should be shown how to use them instead of asking to be trained.
Also some of the modules we have found there were some problems. Do not know if there is way to send the module to me to test before putting it into the program.
I get emails from MM's who see the new module and start asking why it does not work or what needs to be done before I have seen or trained on the module

Overall: Overall I think it has been a good partnership.

Again, we thought we would be alot further, plus we have alot of other ideas for 2013.

Thank You

Vendor Response

by Ron Turley Associates on October 15, 2013

The partnership has moved forward and the big projects have all been delivered. Many changes to the project while in development did require longer-than-normal turnaround. Training has been implemented as well so that users are trained immediately upon release of an enhancement or new feature.
