Oregon DOT Selects Fuel Management System

September 26, 2012

SALEM, OR - The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has contracted with AssetWorks to purchase the FuelFocus Fuel Management System for its 48 fuel sites across the state, according to a release from the company.

ODOT already uses AssetWorks Fleet Management Software to manage its fleet of 6,000 units across Oregon. By adding FuelFocus, ODOT will be able to manage all issues related to fuel dispensing and tracking within the same database as its fleet system.

The FuelFocus Island Controllers will be installed at ODOT’s fueling sites throughout the state and have the ability to monitor any fuel or product that can be metered and pulsed, such as diesel, unleaded gasoline, E-85, urea, compressed natural gas (CNG), liquefied natural gas (LNG), propane, and hydrogen. FuelFocus Island Controllers can also offer security by requiring drivers and vehicles be authorized via PIN numbers, key FOBs, or other configurations. Fuel information and meter readings can be taken at the pump and passed directly into the FleetFocus database in real time.

By improving accountability for consumable assets, the integrated FuelFocus and FleetFocus solution can help fleets reduce fuel consumption and reduce “shrinkage” by 10-20%, according to AssetWorks. Furthermore, the reduction of manual data entry can improve accuracy and save time.

“We are looking forward to having a comprehensive fuel management system that works in partnership with our fleet system. We expect that FuelFocus will help us better monitor our fuel costs, [and] improve our efficiency and asset accountability,” stated Bruce Erickson, fleet services manager. “With all our fleet data in a single database, which is updated in real time, we will be able to take advantage of this information to make fact-driven decisions.”

AssetWorks provides fleet management software, automated fuel management systems, and motor pool and car sharing management systems. ODOT joins a large number of state fleets that employ the integrated FleetFocus and FuelFocus solutions for comprehensive fleet management, including Washington, Indiana, and Minnesota.
