AssetWorks to equip Portland, Ore. regional fleet

Posted on October 19, 2010

AssetWorks, provider of fleet management software and automated fuel management systems, has signed a contract with Metro, an elected regional government in Portland, Ore.,to deploy AssetWorks fully integrated fleet management software, FleetFocus.

Managing over 13,000 acres of natural areas and serving a population of over 1.5 million residents in the Greater Portland area, Metro is responsible for regional growth management, transportation, environmental management, operation of the Oregon Zoo, regional parks and natural area acquisition.

Metro employs over 560 regular staff and manages a fleet of approximately 100 light- and medium-duty trucks, passenger cars, equipment and vans.

Metro sought a comprehensive fleet maintenance management solution that would automate the tracking, periodic maintenance/warranty maintenance, checkout of pool vehicles, budget expense tracking by vehicle and by user group, allotment of replacement costs for vehicles and equipment depreciation for their fleet.

Specifically they were looking for an easy-to-use and cost effective system that included these features:

• Motor pool management with online reservations.
• KPI’s and robust out-of-the box reports with the ability to customize when needed.
• Work order functionality including auto-notification features.
• Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Emissions testing and requirements tracking.
• Warranty tracking.
• Integration with Metro’s existing fuel system.

Based on AssetWorks’ ability to meet these objectives and proven track record serving city and county fleets, Metro selected FleetFocus fleet management software and services solution.

”The AssetWorks system will support Metro’s sustainable operations plan, allowing Metro to manage fleet vehicles more efficiently,” noted Metro fleet project manager Lydia Neill.
