The University system consists of numerous campuses and sites on the islands of Kauai, Oahu, Maui, Molokai, and Hawaii.
One of the University’s main goals with this new system is to increase the availability of information.
Some of the specific information that FleetFocus can help them track includes; equipment costs, utilization, fleet replacement, activity-based costs, employee performance and productivity, comeback rate by technician, and parent-child tracking of unit cost. FleetFocus also provides the ability to track accidents and insurance for fleet vehicles.
Other goals identified by the University include:
• Improve workload planning and scheduling.
• Improve the distribution of information about the fleet to University of Hawaii departments.
• Reduce dependency on paper forms.
• Simplify access to information about vehicles.
• Benchmark operational efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, and cost.
• Provide on-line Motor Pool and online customer information capabilities.
• Reduce vehicle fueling labor through automation.
After a competitive procurement process that included on-site demonstrations, client site visits and a full analysis of the leading fleet software applications for public sector fleets, the University of Hawaii selected AssetWorks’ FleetFocus browser-based enterprise asset management software fully-integrated with the FuelFocus Automated Fueling Solution. These integrated systems provide real-time data validation and update. Raymond Shito, Manager of Parking & Transportation Services, University of Hawaii, stated: "We are excited about taking our University's fleet and motor pool from a manual operation to a computermanaged system to help us improve our business efficiency.
