Graco Pulse® Pro Fluid Management Delivers for the Trucking Industry

Service technicians dispense an immense amount of bulk and drum fluids, including petroleum and synthetic-based oils, coolants, gear lube, windshield wash and more. It’s one of the most frequent tasks your technicians perform. That’s why it’s important to keep it in check. After all, every drop matters – so does every dollar.

Graco Pulse Pro Fluid Management takes full control of your dealership’s bulk fluid inventory. By knowing what type and how much fluid is used, where it goes, when it’s dispensed, and ultimately, who’s performing the work, general managers, service managers, parts managers and others can make better informed decisions to simplify operations, capture previously lost or unassigned costs and uncover hidden profits.

Simplifying Bulk Fluid Management
Deploy Pulse Pro Fluid Management anywhere you need to monitor and measure fluid dispenses. Because it’s completely wireless, comprised of only two core component products, it can be installed quickly to simplify bulk fluid management and maximize profitability in almost any environment.

At a glance, Pulse Pro makes an immediate difference by enabling the following:

  • Know exactly how much fluid is dispensed, where, and by whom to improve inventory management
  • Fast, easy wireless configuration reduces installation costs and eliminates the need for PC connection
  • Generate customizable, automated reports to make better informed decisions
  • Pair every dispense directly with a work order for more accurate billing
  • Add new components seamlessly as your demands grow
  • Integrate seamlessly with Excede and share information throughout your organization

The versatility of Pulse Pro makes it the most comprehensive, convenient and easy-to-use fluid management system on the market.

Elevate Your Pulse with Excede
After Pulse has been configured to communicate with Excede’s API, all requested work order dispenses will automatically be validated against Excede’s repair order database. When the interface is enabled, a dispense will only be authorized if the requesting technician adds a repair order in Excede.

Once an authorized fluid dispense has been completed, the dispensed fluid amount will automatically be updated on the repair order in Excede. This ensures all dispensed fluid is accounted for in Excede with minimal user intervention.

With this tandem approval functionality, you can comfortably manage exact work orders and share accurate data with other stakeholders quickly to improve scheduling, inventory, procurement, pricing and more.

Advanced Technology for the Modern Dealership
Immediately put Pulse Pro to work with just a Graco Pulse HUB and Pulse dispense meter. Simply connect the Pulse HUB to a power source and access your local network to get started – without software or a PC. Access monitoring and reporting tools instantly from any network-connected, web-enabled device, including a PC, tablet or smartphone.

With the Pulse dispense meter, technicians can enter pin codes and other data quickly on the heavy-duty meter’s large, intuitive display. Or, they can flash an NFC tag to the screen to get started – and all data is tracked directly to the meter, technician and work order.
