HxGN EAM Version

Vehicles is a new screen that was created specifically for the Hospitality Edition and is also available in HxGN EAM Enterprise Edition. The purpose of this screen is to create and maintain hotel property vehicles. This could be airport shuttle vans, town cars, or any other type of vehicle the hotel wants to track.

Since Vehicles are considered equipment records in EAM (i.e., system equipment type = Asset) it is like the Asset screen. However, much of the asset related data, including tab information, has been removed because it is not applicable to vehicles. Additional fields that are not available for assets have been added to the Vehicle screen.

Vehicle Statuses are still maintained using the equipment status entity (OBST) and status authorizations. The system status description for Installed has been updated to Active while system status description for Withdrawn was updated to Inactive. These equipment statuses are more typically encountered in the hospitality industry and exist in Infor HMS.

The Facility field in the hierarchy section should be used to enter the hotel Building (system equipment type = Position) for which the vehicle is assigned. The system will retrieve and display the first parent position of the Facility. This could be helpful if the hotel property contains multiple Buildings.

  • Vehicles are not shared with HMS in an integrated environment. They are created and maintained within EAM.

  • The tabs displayed are the tabs certified for use with the Vehicle screen in the Hospitality Edition. Other equipment tabs can be made available but HxGN cannot guarantee system behavior.

  • The user equipment type = Vehicle has been created and associated to the system type = Asset. The Screen Setup screen was used to filter out all equipment types <> Vehicle from this screen’s list view.

  • The Type field is hidden and defaulted to Vehicle when new records are created on this screen.

  • The Department field is not part of this screen. When Vehicles are created the system uses Department = * when storing the record in R5OBJECTS since Department is required in the backend.
