WAYNE, Pa., May 27, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AssetWorks, a leading provider of fleet management software, automated fuel management systems, motor pool systems, and operational asset management systems announced today that the City of Philadelphia, PA has selected AssetWorks integrated fleet management software to manage its large fleet.
The City of Philadelphia Office of Fleet Management (OFM) is responsible for 6,000 city-owned vehicles, as well as another 3,300 vehicles owned by agencies affiliated with the city. There are 16 maintenance facilities in various locations throughout the city that service a variety of vehicles including public health, public safety, departments of labor, recreation and administration. More than 300 people work in the fleet organization.
Looking to replace an in-house managed system, OFM sought an off-the-shelf system with sophisticated functionality to track all of its maintenance activities. Additionally, OFM maintains and operates a fleet of pool vehicles for loan. OFM provides information to third party collection agencies for accident reimbursement, as well as supplies information to user departments about vehicle utilization and availability. AssetWorks FleetFocus was selected to meet these currents needs, as well as its ability to accommodate future needs, such as providing public access to select fleet data.
FleetFocus offers robust work order functionality; complete warranty and claims tracking; flexible preventive maintenance scheduling; purchasing and parts inventory management; and motor pool management. FleetFocus can reduce vehicle ownership costs, extend the useful life of vehicles and increase equipment availability.
"One of the key reasons we selected AssetWorks fleet management software was their proven track record with large city fleets across the country," states Chris Cocci, City of Philadelphia Fleet Manager. "It was important for us to choose a software package that offered a great deal of functionality out of the box. We believe that FleetFocus can be a tool that helps us improve our fleet management operations."
AssetWorks' fleet management software is now used by 9 of the top 10 most populated US cities and 27 of the 50 US states.
