Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Vehicle Management Selects Chevin FleetWave

March 18, 2010 - Press Release

FITCHBURG, MA - The Commonwealth of Massachusetts Office of Vehicle Management chose Chevin's web-based fleet management information system, FleetWave to manage the acquisition and management of its diverse fleet of more than 11,000 vehicles. The Office of Vehicle Management (OVM) is mandated by the State legislature to provide vehicles and related services to all departments and agencies across the State and provides comprehensive services that include:

  • Vehicle Procurement
  • Acquisition of Alternative Fuel Vehicles
  • Maintenance of Fleet Repair Services
  • Fuel Card Program and Services
  • 1-800 "How am I Driving" Program
  • Accident and Subrogation Services
  • Tire and Glass Replacement
  • Reservations and Daily Rentals

FleetWave's uniquely flexible capabilities allow OVM to meet all these diverse requirements by replacing an inflexible and non-integrated system with a single "enterprise-wide" fleet management information system.  With extensive experience working with and implementing flexible fleet management solutions for Federal and State agencies, Chevin and FleetWave were a natural choice for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as they look to enhance their fleet management and oversight capabilities.

As FleetWave delivers completely definable capabilities throughout, all of the OVM's specific requirements were able to be met without the need for costly and time consuming development.   With its industry leading web-based architecture, FleetWave can be easily deployed to remote agencies and departments around the State and can be quickly accessed by casual users with Internet Explorer from anytime or anywhere.  Using FleetWave's integrated functionality, state-wide communications for all fleet related policies and procedures can be easily accommodated, tracked and seamlessly consolidated on a monthly basis: dramatically streamlining labor intensive process.

"Public organizations like the Office of Vehicle Management face significant and constantly evolving challenges today.  They need to maintain and offer a broad array of services while constantly improving oversight and cost control across an expansive geography," said Ron Katz, Senior Vice President of North American Sales for Chevin.  "FleetWave is an ideal solution for dynamic public sector organizations looking to enhance management oversight and improve customer service.  FleetWave's web-based architecture provides a centralized solution with extremely comprehensive, yet flexible capabilities for efficiently managing fleet assets."

Chevin Fleet Solutions is a global provider of dedicated fleet management solutions. Chevin developed the world's first true web-based fleet management system, FleetWave in 2000, as well as pioneering revolutionary touch screen, bar-coding and remote data entry systems to make fleet and workshop operations simpler and more controllable.  Meanwhile the Chevin continues to market its class-leading 'desk-top' RoadBASE software, aimed at small to mid-sized fleets.  Further information about Chevin Fleet Solutions uniquely flexible solutions can be found at
