Tom Wisenall founded Current Software in 1986 following a 12-year career in public transit management and consulting that included both domestic and overseas assignments. His interest in maintenance management software solutions began in 1981 with work on a service island data collection system utilizing hand-held data collectors and an Apple II+ computer to calculate fuel and fluid consumption and schedule preventive maintenance inspections. Current Software launched its ExtraFleet line of maintenance management software in 1993. It was one of the first such applications developed for the
Windows operating system environment. The company's ExtraFleet.net broadens the software's accessibility via the Internet and automating data capture by utilizing widely available devices like the Smartphone.
