The Chevin Team are great to work with. We’ve never had any problems and there has always been a rapid response.
In January 2003, the governments of Louisville and Jefferson were combined into a single Metro County government.
The combined Metro Public Works would standardize maintenance and procurement practices, bringing together multiple maintenance facilities and a collective fleet of 2,600 licensed vehicles and 1,400 items of equipment.
The new governmental organization wanted the pooled fleet to be controlled under a single management system: a critical step in helping the body 'get its arms around its business'.
Implementing this fleet management system would lead to huge benefits, such as enterprise-wide, standardized fleet processes; full visibility of all operational costs and enhanced fleet utilization.
After an extensive selection process, the Metro Public Works chose Chevin's web-based FleetWave as the best business tool to replace the two previous systems.
The combined government entity would use FleetWave to implement lasting, quality fleet management processes.
FleetWave’s implementation meant that system administrators no longer needed to access data via the IT department, instead, all the required information was immediately available at the fleet manager’s fingertips.
Implementation of the easy-to-use system has led to progress in a number of areas - for example, the municipal organization has used the tool to eliminate redundant data entry, therefore eliminating unnecessary costs. In addition, asset utilization has been improved across the fleet since the management system was implemented.
The organization has also gained better accountability over part purchases, by simply integrating the system with the county’s legacy financial application and external parts suppliers’ point of sale systems.
Overall, the government says using FleetWave has greatly supported its overall aim of improving efficiency and effectiveness.
