Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
Spireon, the leading M2M provider of mobile resource management (MRM) and business intelligence solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with National Purchasing Partners that will allow local and state government agencies to access the benefits of Spireon’s FleetLocate Local Fleet Management solution.
Through this partnership, public entities will now receive advantageous pricing on Spireon’s FleetLocate Local Fleet Management solution through membership with NPP Government (NPPGov).
NPPGov is a Cooperative Purchasing Organization that offers a portfolio of competitively bid, publicly awarded contracts to public entities, including government agencies. One of the nation’s largest purchasing organizations, NPPGov provides government agencies a cost- and time-saving vehicle for accessing products and services without having to go through a bid process.
FleetLocate Local Fleet Management is a powerfully simple vehicle tracking and fleet management system for owners and operators of locally concentrated fleets. FleetLocate connects fleet owners and operators to their vehicles in real-time, enabling faster and more efficient dispatch and routing decisions; increased driver safety; reduced vehicle misuse; improved on-time service; reduced fuel consumption and costs; and instant vehicle locates. Build on Spireon’s award-winning NSpire M2M Business Intelligence Platform, FleetLocate captures a rich level of real-time vehicle data served up as meaningful business intelligence via easy-to-use web-based tools, reports, alerts and analytics.
Local and state government agencies looking to improve fleet performance may utilize the existing publicly awarded contract through NPPGov to procure the FleetLocate solution. This competitive bid process was completed with a lead public agency and is consistent with AFG guidelines, and most state and local procurement statutes.
“The agreement with NPPGov provides an efficient means for government agencies that operate local fleets to benefit from increased efficiencies, productivity, and cost savings,” says Marc Brungger, CEO of Spireon. “Local and state agencies will know that Spireon complies with government purchasing practices and that our FleetLocate solution is competitively priced.”
