We spoke to Margret Davis, VP of Fleet Management at Beacon Mobility about her experience at the Chevin Customer Conference 2022 and using FleetWave to manage a fleet of over 12,000 vehicles and assets!
Beacon Mobility is a growing family of companies, who operate 19 brands in 22 states.

Beacon Mobility have been using FleetWave since 2022, and are currently in the process of implementing the system at all of their brands across the US. They are also utilising our FleetWave Technician app which allows technicians to quickly and easily manage maintenance tasks including workload, activity, stock management, compliance and more. It has already been rolled out across 70+ garages to over 400 technicians, fleet team members and various operations partners.
