City of Knoxville
Our FleetWave customer, the City of Knoxville ranked as number 51 in the program, and have been using our fleet software since 2006. The Fleet Services Department maintains the city’s fleet of more than 1,400 vehicles and equipment from squad cars to fire trucks and snow ploughs which city employees use to deliver many essential public services.
DC Water is a water and sewer utility company serving the residents of Washington DC and surrounding jurisdictions such as Maryland and Virginia. It has the largest waste water processing plant in the world and operates a rolling fleet of around 635 vehicles, with an additional 1,300 pieces of general assets.
DC Water was ranked as number 59 in NAFA’s ‘100 Best Fleets’ program, and they have been a FleetWave user for over a decade now after implementing our software back in 2011. Using FleetWave DC Water has improved the standard of employees’ driving, made numerous efficiencies to its fleet and enhanced many processes for looking after assets, right down to the security of laptops and keys.
The system has enabled us to create a way of not only analyzing and controlling all of our business performance but provides us with an environment where employees can be cultivated to understand processes and their value to the authority. Our team now champions improvements through use of the system and we are always discussing new ideas. This unique capability and the overall reach of the software across our organization is why internally we now call the system simply ‘Wave’. I tell my people that if the data isn’t in the system then the job hasn’t been completed.
