Chevin: Emissions Reduction Driving Fleet Software Buys

January 16, 2014 - Press Release

Environmental issues, especially overall carbon emissions, are becoming an ever more important motivator for adopting fleet management software in 2014, according to Chevin Fleet Solutions.

Chevin says that use of the extensive environmental reporting tools available in its fleet management software is spreading rapidly, especially among federal, municipal and large corporate fleets.

"More and more organizations are adopting alternative fuel targets and innovative transportation initiatives as part of wider environmental policies and vehicle operations strategies in an effort to meet sustainability goals," said Ron Katz, senior vice president of North American sales.

"We are seeing increasing numbers of clients making moves to switch from six to four cylinder selectors, or taking steps to ensure that bi-fuel vehicles are burning the correct fuel for the lowest possible emissions output," Katz said. "Some 'early adopter' fleets are even starting to operate electric vehicles in an effort to make their environmental impact as low as possible."

One of the difficulties for fleets with sustainability goals is tracking actual fuel usage in a credible way and producing compliance metrics that stand up to environmental auditing, according to the company.

"Producing figures that validate a fleets environmental performance is a complex task and one that many fleets are finding difficult to handle without help," Katz said.

"This is why we're seeing more and more interest in the alternative fuel management capabilities and environmental reporting analytics available using our FleetWave software," Katz added. "Detailed, accurate and timely fuel usage information is readily available by clicking a few buttons within the software."
