Chevin Fleet Solutions, a global provider of web-based, enterprise-level fleet and asset management software, has announced that Wake County, N.C., has implemented its FleetWave solution to manage a fleet of 1,300 assets, including about 200 pieces of equipment used by municipal departments.

Centrally located in the Triangle area of North Carolina, Wake County is second most populous county in the state with approximately 1 million residents. Covering approximately 860 square miles, the county encompasses 12 municipalities including the state capitol in Raleigh. Wake County’s Fleet Services Division – part of its General Services Administration – provides asset management, fleet service, and fuel management services in support of vehicles and equipment used by county employees.

To more effectively manage its fleet operation, Wake County is converting to FleetWave from a legacy system. The Chevin software will be used to manage maintenance, pool vehicles, keys, fuel dispensing and usage and invoicing, and to track vehicle and driver violations as well as staff training and certification. FleetWave will also be integrated with a number of third-party systems, including vehicle telematics solutions and the NAPA IBS parts procurement system. Access to the software is provided via a secure log-in so remote users can view information using a customer portal.

On signing the new contract, Ron Katz, senior vice president, North American sales at Chevin, said:

“Wake County was looking for a solution to more effectively manage its fleet and improve its ability to track key process indicators. Using FleetWave’s comprehensive reporting capability, the operation will access detailed analyses and real-time KPI reports, and create trend charts and metrics. FleetWave’s integrated Query Builder tool will also allow them to access complex queries, and easily export them to Excel or Word files for further analysis. 

“With FleetWave, Wake County is consolidating disparate fleet operating data into a single centralized repository for real-time oversight and management of any vehicle or performance related metric. The flexible enterprise fleet management software system will enable visibility into all of its equipment and maintenance operations so it can better serve its communities.”
