The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department in California is moving from a home-grown fleet management information system to Chevin’s FleetWave software, the company announced. The web-based software will be used to manage entire vehicle lifecycles of 2,200 vehicles and 16,000 pieces of equipment, including light bars, cages used in patrol cars, and weapons.
The Sheriff’s Department purchased the system through Sourcewell (formerly the National Joint Powers Alliance).
The previous system did not offer the capabilities or data structure needed to establish and implement best practices across its large-scale operation. The new software will allow the agency to save time and money by eliminating unnecessary data inputs on focusing more on individual needs, according to Chevin. FleetWave will, for example, be used to manage fuel usage and purchasing, along with tracking and managing preventive maintenance using customized work orders.
