WebFleetLog Combines Fuel and Fleet Management
April 2008, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
SCI Distribution announced the launch of WebFleetLog, a Web-based fuel and fleet management application.
This application allows fleet managers to monitor fuel usage, track vehicle locations, and view dozens of categories of vehicle and driver performance data in real time from any Web-connected computer or PDA device. The 24/7 fleet management system incorporates the company's FleetLog GPS offline/online vehicle tracking system and new 802.11g/WiFi-enabled RF Fuel wireless monitoring system designed to prevent unauthorized and inappropriate use of fuel at the company fuel pump.
In addition to providing 24/7 access to every phase of fleet activity, SCI's WebFleetLog fleet and fuel management system can also notify managers when driver performance, engine performance, and vehicle fuel efficiency fall away from predetermined parameters.
"As diesel prices soar, fleet vehicle monitoring and fuel control become even more important," said Tal Ezra, president of SCI Distribution. "Our WebFleetLog system not only stops fuel fraud and waste at the pump, but alerts managers to inefficient fuel consumption in their fleet vehicles across town or across country."
SCI introduced wireless fuel control and wireless pump-to-office data reporting to the fleet management industry in 2002 with the implementation of radio frequency (RF) control technology in its pump control units.
"Not only does the new wireless RF Fuel control system offer customers a very quick and economical alternative for retrofitting existing pumps, the 802.11g standard allows each pump control unit to be programmed and maintained online from SCI's service center," Ezra said. "In most cases system maintenance and repairs can be done by remote online access without sending a technician to the site, saving time and money."
