After just 21 days of operation, we saw a significant improvement in fleet performance, driver behavior and savings. This prompted our decision to install FleetLocate on all 4,500 vehicles in our fleet, across all 50 states.
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Diebold, Incorporated, a global leader in financial self-service and integrated security systems and services, is extending its implementation of FleetLocate GPS Fleet Management System across the company’s nationwide fleet.
Diebold based the decision to expand its contract with FleetLocate on impressive performance improvements and savings resulting from an initial, localized launch of the FleetLocate information platform. Developed by Spireon, a leading innovator of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions, FleetLocate is a highly scalable GPS fleet monitoring solution that connects companies with large, geographically dispersed fleets to real-time visibility of all their vehicles.
“We initially installed FleetLocate GPS on more than 300 vehicles in North Carolina, South Carolina, the Midwest territory and Texas,” explains Ron Shepard, Diebold Vice President of Services for North America. “After just 21 days of operation, we saw a significant improvement in fleet performance, driver behavior and savings. This prompted our decision to install FleetLocate on all 4,500 vehicles in our fleet, across all 50 states.”
Performance evaluation of the initial limited FleetLocate launch generated the following improvements in Diebold’s fleet operations:
- Approximately 5 percent reduction in fuel usage
- About 3 percent reduction greenhouse gas emission
- Nearly 60 percent improvement in idle time
In addition, Diebold expects to generate more than one millions dollars in annual savings related to:
- Reduced idle time
- Lower insurance premiums
- Improved driver safety and awareness
- More effective vehicle maintenance
- Lower fuel consumption
“With FleetLocate, we expect a marked improvement in driver and public safety, while extending the useful life of our vehicles and hard assets,” Shepard added. “Diebold should see solid return on investment by the end of our first year using FleetLocate, and that ROI will improve demonstrably over the years.”
“Diebold is an excellent example of a company with the initiative and vision to see the opportunities in their fleet for improved bottom-line performance,” says Steve Blair, Vice President and General Manager of FleetLocate. “We closely engaged with Diebold fleet managers and leadership to understand their fleet challenges and requirements, identify areas for improvement and savings through ROI modeling, execute a proof-of-concept and demonstrate the ROI for each of those areas in quantifiable terms. We look forward to partnering with Diebold as we extend FleetLocate across their entire fleet, and maximize the return on their investment.”
