Atlanta, GA; Valencia, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2008
Discrete Wireless, Inc and Link It Software Corporation announced today their strategic partnership designed to offer vehicle and fleet owners a Web- based software tool to reduce fuel consumption by 15% or more.
Discrete Wireless, Inc. and Link It Software Corporation have been in business 8 and 10 years respectively. Both firms are the de facto leaders in their specific areas with both Fortune 500 and thousands of small fleet customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Discrete Wireless's GPS vehicle tracking application, MARCUS®, is the leading web hosted GPS Fleet Management solution; and with Link It's EZ Maintenance Web (EZM Web) being the industry standard for Web-based Fleet Maintenance Tracking and Control applications, a combined solution has significant impact.
"As it relates to fuel savings, fleet management solutions like MARCUS®, just based upon tracking mileage, side jobs, speeding and idle, have historically saved a fleet almost 10% on fuel costs, and that added up when it was $3.00 a gallon," explained Jeffery Thacher, Discrete Wireless Chairman & President. "With fuel prices today, I believe our MARCUS® GPS Fleet Management solution combined with Link It's phenomenally strong Maintenance offering; EZM Web, will generate a return on fuel savings higher than 15%. We certainly will publish the results as we progress."
Some of the benefits of the combined Web-based software offering include - seamless feed vehicle mileage data via web services, hours of use, automatic updates of maintenance schedules, real-time maintenance alert generation, and more.
"Study after study has shown that timely vehicle maintenance reduces fuel use by at least 4% to 5%," explained Link It's CEO, Wayne McFarland. "Furthermore, EZM Web users can enter expected miles per gallon for each vehicle. If the miles per gallon fall below this setting, EZM Web immediately flags the user to check the vehicle. This is critical, a problem as simple as a clogged air filter can reduce mileage by up to 40%."
"In addition, customers who use the combination of EZM Web and Discrete Wireless GPS services know instantly when maintenance is due or if any of their vehicles need to be looked at because the mileage of the vehicle is far past the recommended maintenance period," McFarland continued. "This translates into ongoing reduction of fuel consumption, increased operating efficiencies, and longevity of vehicle life."
Customers taking advantage of Discrete Wireless's MARCUS® solution and EZM Web combination will gain all the benefits of years of customer driven product development and the expertise developed by both firms.
McFarland emphasized that the Discrete Wireless - EZM Web software combination is very economical. "Both Companies have clearly demonstrated their business models where both firms market products that have a low cost to deploy and have a quick return on investment. Companies of virtually any size can immediately deploy and participate in the benefits of this combined solution."
