Wireless fleet management services provider Networkfleet, Inc. today announced that it has become a corporate partner of the Alliance for Innovation to help local governments benefit from new technology. The Alliance for Innovation is an international network of progressive governments and partners committed to transforming local government by accelerating the development and dissemination of innovations.
Networkfleet and the Alliance for Innovation will offer a series of free workshops on ways local governments can exceed fleet optimization goals. The next workshop is scheduled for May 12, 2011, in Arvada, Colorado.
Networkfleet's wireless fleet management services are designed to improve fleet efficiency by reducing fuel use, emissions and maintenance expenses. The company's technology combines vehicle diagnostic monitoring with an online GPS fleet tracking system. Networkfleet is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hughes Telematics, Inc.
As an Alliance Corporate Member, Networkfleet will help to create opportunities for local governments to pursue innovative solutions that reduce costs and initiate greater effectiveness within organizations and communities. Corporate Members offer unique products, consulting and training specifically tailored to benefit Alliance members and provide solutions in a credible, non-commercial environment.
“The Alliance for Innovation works to transform local government and advance community excellence through the discovery and application of leading ideas and practices,” said Karen Thoreson, president of the Alliance for Innovation. “We are happy to partner with companies like Networkfleet to educate members on products and services that help them perform at their best.”
“Throughout our history, we have worked closely with the public sector to help governments reduce costs and improve fleet operations,” said Keith Schneider, president and CEO of Networkfleet. “The Alliance for Innovation is a great partner for Networkfleet, and we look forward to working with them to offer educational events and information that will benefit their members.”
The upcoming workshop in Arvada, Colorado will be held on May 12, 2011, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., and is open to all government fleet staff at no cost. It will provide an overview of how a telematics solution can improve overall fleet efficiency, a review of GPS and vehicle diagnostic return-on-investment (ROI) studies and a live demo of Networkfleet's fleet management system. Those attending will learn action steps to analyze fleet operations and reduce costs, including how to achieve an overall fleet-size reduction of five to ten percent.
