Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 15, 2014
thingtech (http://www.thingtech.com) – an Atlanta, GA based fleet and mobile asset tracking firm - has been selected by Soldier On to implement a real time GPS fleet and mobile asset management platform to improve fleet utilization, visibility, case worker productivity, and, ultimately, drive operational efficiencies. The scalable and integrated platform streamlines processes, automates fleet maintenance workflows, and provides real time alerting and visibility into the Solider On mobile workforce and service delivery programs.
The thingtech platform allows Soldier On to manage their fleet in real time and capture events associated with speeding, idling, geo-fence violations, erratic driving, and engine diagnostics. More importantly the data is converted to actionable management data to assist staff in vehicle assignments, preventive maintenance, vehicle rotation, and overall fleet financial data management. Fuel card and EZ Pass toll data is integrated for a holistic view into the total operating costs for the fleet. “We are proud to work with Soldier On and help support their mission. Our integrated enterprise fleet and asset management solution will help them provide more efficient services to our nations veterans and improve fleet management workflows and utilization. Integration of fuel cards, toll devices, and financial data will provide a 360 degree view of their transportation and fleet program,” stated Tim Quinn, CEO of thingtech.
Soldier On is a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to ending veteran homelessness. They work in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies to provide veterans with shelter and support in an environment that offers dignity, integrity, and, most importantly, hope. Their mission is to offer a continuum of care that includes immediate and long-term housing with services delivered where they live. Soldier On’s ultimate goal is to provide formerly homeless veterans with permanent, supportive, sustainable housing – assisting them in their transition from homelessness to homeownership.
Soldier On has experienced substantial growth in their transportation and case management services. They operate and manage a substantial fleet of vehicles, mobile assets, and mobile workforce. As the size and complexity of their fleet continues to grow, Soldier On leadership recognized the need to implement a scalable enterprise fleet and asset management system to better manage their fleet costs and help minimize challenges that often come with growth. Jack Downing, CEO of Soldier On, says “Our fleet has reached a size and budget where we cannot properly manage and maintain it without the scalable and flexible solutions that thingtech provides. We are excited about the partnership we have developed and look forward to improving and extending our fleet management program so that we can better assist the veterans in our care and throughout the communities serve.”
