FITCHBURG, MA Intended to help fleets achieve the full potential of telematics technology, Chevin Fleet Solutions has recently launched a new product dubbed MilePost. This newly integrated capability marries Chevin's flexible Web-based enterprise fleet management information system, FleetWave, with any third-party telematics system.

The result of this integration provide in-depth real-time fleet operating data that can be leveraged to provide true insight into fleet operations, generating significant operational and financial benefits, according to the company. Fleet operators can save time and money by using imported vehicle tracking data from FleetWave to gain "live" vehicle mileage data for driver trip expenses and business mileage claims, the company said. Data can be instantly accessed by associated departments such as workshops, finance, or even payroll.

Additionally, MilePost provides fleets accurate monitoring of business mileage, fuel usage, and even individual MPG analysis. To further streamline the process and reduce costs, FleetWave also automates workflow and eliminates administrative time dedicated to tracking and recording vehicle usage.

"Chevin has developed MilePost in response to customer demand, allowing for any third-party vehicle tracking product to be easily interfaced with FleetWave," said Chevin's Vice President of North American Sales Ron Katz. "As increasing numbers of our clients are using telematics systems, they appreciate the benefits these products can have for their operation, but they also understand that to realize a telematics solutions full potential, these systems need to be integrated with an enterprise fleet solution such as FleetWave. This real-time data is now directly available within FleetWave, giving the fleet manager global visibility over every aspect of a diverse vehicle fleet, not just the GPS and location data currently available through conventional tracking systems."
