Barber National Institute launches Agile Fleet FMIS

System will track usage, pinpoint opportunities for cost reductions, and integrate with fuel system records

BNICHANTILLY, VA, October 24, 2019
-- The Barber National Institute of Erie, Pa. has launched a fleet efficiency project with a web-based solution that will enable the organization to improve vehicle maintenance scheduling and efficiency while reducing costs. The solution will automate vehicle maintenance activities, track all driver and vehicle data, and enable accurate reporting and analysis. The announcement was made today by Agile Fleet, creator of the FleetCommander fleet management information system that is being implemented at Barber National Institute.

The project will unburden staff who currently manage the organization’s vehicle data and preventative maintenance schedules manually. Going forward, the automated system will enable the organization to:

  • Eliminate arduous paper processes for tracking vehicle maintenance
  • Manage maintenance for vehicles, including setting up detailed preventative maintenance schedules for all vehicles, and tracking all vehicle maintenance and related costs
  • Collect vehicle usage data needed to identify underutilized vehicles and adjust vehicle types needed by drivers, and right-size the fleet
  • Rotate vehicles based on mileage to spread usage evenly among vehicles

The system will manage 300 vehicles that service 10 campus locations across Pennsylvania as well as nearly 100 residential group homes.

"Helping Barber National Institute efficiently manage their vehicles and reduce costs ultimately helps them achieve their mission," says Ed Smith, President of Agile Fleet. "It is gratifying to see our product contribute to the well-being of the citizens served by this remarkable organization."
