The City of Redmond, Washington Selects AssetWorks Fleet Management Software Solution

FleetFocus Offers a Browser Application for a Paperless Shop

WAYNE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- AssetWorks, a leading provider of fleet management software and automated fuel management systems, announced today that it has signed a contract with the City of Redmond, WA to deploy its fleet management software application FleetFocus.

The City of Redmond Washington s General Government Fleet Division and Fire Fleet Division provide centralized fleet management services for more than 300 rolling stock and 150 pieces of equipment, including fleet specification and acquisition assistance, fueling and maintenance. The city s rolling stock and apparatus range from heavy duty to light duty equipment, including sedans, public safety vehicles, Vactor trucks and large mowers. Additionally, the General Government Fleet manages an inventory of repair parts and supplies, and operates a motor pool service for the city.

As a growing city in a growing region, the City of Redmond s antiquated fleet maintenance software was no longer adequate for their fleet operations. In 2010, the city issued a request for proposal for the purchase and deployment of a new fleet management software application, to which six companies responded. Interviews were conducted with the top two companies, and AssetWorks was unanimously selected to deploy the FleetFocus fleet management solution.

Once implemented, AssetWorks FleetFocus can increase the capability of staff to track vehicle and equipment costs from purchasing to disposal, including all maintenance costs; record mechanics services in performing work and timeliness based on standard published repair times; identify lifecycle costs of vehicles/equipment; and track expenses to manage internal resource allocation and commercial charges.

Jim Schnepp, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for AssetWorks, commented: We look forward to a successful deployment of FleetFocus and a long-term partnership with the City of Redmond. The city s forward-looking vision of a real-time/paperless shop environment with a focus on solid data integrity and the use of the latest fleet Key Performance Indicators and Business Intelligence to better manage operations fits very well with our browser-based solution, FleetFocus. Redmond joins a strong public sector AssetWorks customer base in the Pacific Northwest including large state agencies, transit organizations, city and county governments.

AssetWorks is a leading supplier of fleet management software and implementation services and automated fuel management systems provider in North America, with more than 500 software customers and more than 85 Automated Fuel System Customers.
