Companies are always looking for opportunities to reduce their maintenance costs which led VIZIYA and National Express to collaborate on developing the Warranty Tracker solution. The solution allows you to track warranties and presents potential vendor claims for review and submission. A successful warranty claim is one of the easiest ways to contribute hard dollar savings directly to your company’s bottom line.

Enhances each step in the maintenance work process – presents claims for user review
Monitors maintenance work orders against warranty status
A successful warranty claim is one of the easiest ways to contribute hard dollar savings directly to your company’s bottom line and to ensure budget targets are achieved. Even better, companies can increase production uptime, improve equipment design, and strengthen their supplier relationships. WorkAlign Warranty Tracker, a purpose-built solution for Maintenance, flags work orders that are under warranty and presents claims for your review and submission. Fully integrated with all the major maintenance systems, Warranty Tracker tracks and identifies resources by item or asset level, then monitors activity through the warranty expiration date. This allows users to manage warranties for assets which have sub-assemblies covered under different warranty terms. Warranty claims represent between 3 and 5 percent of a typical company’s capital spending, on average. Improving warranty visibility and tracking can help you to achieve maintenance budget targets because the savings go right to your bottom line.
Warranty Tracker Benefits:
Improve asset performance since warranty claims often lead to re-designs or may prevent future warranty claims.
Recover or avoid maintenance costs by ensuring that in-warranty repairs are filed with the vendor for reimbursement. Record the financial transaction in your system to reflect actual spend and cost incurred as accurately as possible.
