FleetWave proves valuable for utility fleets across North America

A growing number of utility fleet operations across North America are using FleetWave – and BC Hydro is the newest client to make use of the fleet management software.

BC Hydro – one of Canada’s largest utilities that delivers electricity to 95% of British Columbia’s population – is now using FleetWave, which reflects an increasing trend amongst utility fleets.

Using our software, BC Hydro can now streamline work management mobile mechanics and in garages, and successfully meets a number of key fleet management criteria. Such objectives include flexible reporting capabilities; quick and effective analytics; and access to key performance indicators over the complete lifecycle of vehicles.

Additionally, the utility is also using FleetWave to enable integrations with third-party suppliers and other internal management solutions.

Explaining that utility fleets can realize significant cost and productivity advantages with FleetWave, Ron Katz, Senior Vice President for North American Sales, said:

“We are very pleased to welcome BC Hydro as our newest client. A continually expanding number of utility fleets are turning to Chevin to manage assets, workshops, parts, fuel purchases, and drivers. The steady increase in FleetWave’s popularity within this market segment is because the software’s modules are matched very well to their requirements.”

Chevin has already signed a number of large-scale utility fleet clients in North America, including Hydro Ottawa in Canada; the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority; Washington Gas; Central Hudson Gas & Electric; and Eversource, New England’s largest energy provider.

Universally, these utility operations selected FleetWave for its flexibility, ease of use, comprehensive reporting capabilities and its ability to integrate with outside service providers and internal enterprise information management systems.

Katz said that Chevin’s value is increasingly being validated by its growing success in many fleet markets in North America. In 2016, the company realized growth of more than 35% and is on track to surpass that accomplishment in 2017.

“Among new and legacy clients, FleetWave is proving to be a highly effective centralized system for managing entire fleet operations. As a management solution and a central repository of fleet information it provides the ability to gain complete oversight of a fleet’s operations and its performance.”
