Commonwealth of Kentucky reduces motor pool by 28%
Kentucky Cabinets for Energy, Environment & Public Protection surpass efficiency goals
CHANTILLY, VA, October 17, 2012 -- The Kentucky Cabinets for Energy, Environment and Public Protection (EEC PPC) has reduced their two original motor pools by 28% through the use of FleetCommander fleet and motor pool software solutions. The announcement was made today by Agile Access Control, Inc., (Agile) creator of FleetCommander.
The Kentucky General Administration and Program Support (GAPS) sought to implement fleet management technology because it was looking for an efficient way to manage the approximately 1,400 vehicle assets used by the EEC PPC. In the past, the organization used white boards and paper forms to keep track of fuel purchases, work orders, vehicle reservations, policy enforcement, and other information. Since implementing FleetCommander fleet and motor pool software in 2010, the EECPPC has made significant strides in efficiency, including:
- Reducing their two original pools by 28%
- Balancing pools by moving underutilized vehicles from one site to another
- Eliminating vehicles from sitting for long periods
- Evening out utilization across the pools
- Eliminating double booking
- Eliminating mileage reimbursement for personal vehicles due to availability of pooled vehicles
- Automating reporting processes
- Collecting accurate odometers to trigger preventive maintenance
- Reducing the workload on administrators
The EECPPC drastically cut down on the staff hours needed to track the activities of the more than 1,000 assigned vehicles, as well as the more than 110 vehicles in their motor pool. In addition, the organization needed to track vehicle usage on a daily basis in order to trigger maintenance reminders. "The EECPPC required its drivers to account for vehicle usage on a daily basis, including fuel transactions, odometers, vehicle usage type, and more. Our team created a custom mileage and daily use form that collects the information and provides a Mileage Transaction Summary report that offers a look at the cost of ownership of these vehicles," says Ed Smith, President of Agile. "When maintenance and depreciation costs can total $5,000 a year per vehicle, it's pretty important to know that the Commonwealth has the correct number of vehicles and costs for fuel fall within expected ranges. We are pleased that FleetCommander can offer the EECPPC a way to manage that information in such a way that helps reduce their costs," he says. Kentucky EEC PPC's Ken Joyce says, "FleetCommander has been a dream for us. And we get top quality service from Agile's customer support."
"Right-sizing their fleet, reducing staff workload, and managing their fleet more efficiently were goals the EEC PPC set when originally launching FleetCommander; it's very gratifying to see them come to fruition and exceeded. We are proud to be a part of their success," says Smith.
