Unisys' Fleet Management App for GSA Wins Award

June 9, 2015 - Press Release

A mobile application for fleet management developed by Unisys for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) was selected from a field of 40 contestants to win the American Council for Technology-Industry Advisory Council (ACT-IAC) Advanced Mobility Working Group Leadership Award at the organization's Annual Mobile Applications Fair in Washington, D.C., on May 27.

GSA's Fleet Management System to Go (FMS2Go), showcased by the GSA fleet management team at the ACT-IAC event, allows agency fleet services representatives and contractors to use their Android devices to maintain vehicle inventories onsite at vehicle delivery locations, according to the company.

FMS2Go has helped GSA make fleet management more efficient by eliminating cumbersome and time-consuming data transfer and batch processing procedures. It also improves data integrity and eliminates costs for the purchase of expensive barcode scanners, as the new app uses the built-in cameras on any Android tablet or phone. The solution also uses the Unisys ClearPath ePortal specialty engine to leverage real-time connectivity to GSA's back-end fleet management database, according to Unisys.

FMS2Go was selected for the award based on a number of factors, including its usefulness to GSA, its cost-cutting benefits and its innovative features.

Experts from the Unisys ClearPath Center of Excellence in Reston, Virginia, worked closely with the GSA fleet management team to successfully deliver this innovative mobile solution under the agency's Continuous Services Improvement and Innovations Program.

Unisys also leveraged global best practices from its Application Modernization Center of Excellence (AMCOE) in St. Louis to deliver innovative mobile application modernization services. AMCOE employs a team of highly-skilled experts focused on building, operating and maintaining innovative software applications for Unisys' government and commercial clients.
