For over 50 years, Mike Albert has offered innovative and flexible fleet programs for fleet customers.

Mike Albert chose to represent Networkfleet after thoroughly evaluating ten competing solutions in the areas of strength and stability of the supplier, ease of product installation, application integration and overall value.
"An important factor in our selection of Networkfleet was the ability to capture data and easily integrate it into applications and generate additional reports for our customers. We also were impressed with Networkfleet's Web-based software and its remote smog check capabilities," said Sheri Hardesty, VP of sales administration for Mike Albert. "By adding Networkfleet to our offerings, we will expand our ability to provide comprehensive, customized fleet management services that allow businesses to optimize their fleet budgets and resources."

In addition, Networkfleet has partnerships with third-party software developers to integrate its technology with applications that add value for customers, such as field service optimization and maintenance management solutions.
