SAN ANTONIO - E.J. Ward, Inc. (Ward), a developer of fleet asset management solutions was awarded the City of San Antonio automated fuel management contract.  Ward's Automated Fuel Management System (Ward AFMS) will provide fuel management technology and services for over 5,000 city vehicles and 11 City fueling sites.  The City of San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the United States and was the fourth-fastest-growing large city in the nation from 2000-2006.

"The Ward AFMS will provide the City with the latest fuel management technology resulting in many benefits that we were not getting with our previous system" says Florencio Pena, Director Fleet Services for the City of San Antonio.  "The Ward fuel system reduces manual entry, improves odometer reading controls, and will help reduce fuel costs."

The Ward AFMS will incorporate Ward's CANceiver vehicle diagnostic reporting technology.  The City will be able to combine fleet fueling and vehicle data retrieval into one operation enabling the City to optimize its fleet through accurate fuel usage reporting.  The City can also utilize Ward's suite of eco-friendly services and reports to improve the environmental performance of their fleet assets including reducing Green House Gas (GHG) emissions.

"We are elated the City has chosen the Ward AFMS to improve the performance of their vehicle fleet assets while ensuring accountability and control of their fleet fueling resources," said Ward COO Troy Goldhammer.  "The City will be able to collect vital vehicle data at every fueling which will provide critical information to improve the City's vehicle preventative maintenance program, while reducing fleet expenses and costs." 

Founded in 1974, Ward is headquartered in San Antonio and develops advanced technologies for fleet asset and fuel management systems and solutions including fuel management, AVL fleet tracking, and tire pressure management systems.  Ward is recognized throughout the United States for ensuring fleet assets are accounted for and fleet usage is optimized.  For more information, visit Ward's virtual pressroom at www.ejward.com.
