The FEAi software is designed to allow fleets to extend automation into other areas of their operation. The system can be deployed over the Internet or over a fleet's own intranet network. It can be configured to run in a client/server computing environment or in a browser-based environment based on Microsoft Distributed Network Architecture (DNA) using XML-based technology and will work with Sequel Server, Oracle, and DB2 databases.
VehiCare, a provider of mobile fleet maintenance services, has committed to using FEAi in its operations. It will have 24-hour access to the system over a secure network and receive a flat monthly bill for hosting services. The company has a total fleet of over 24,000 units based out of 20 maintenance facilities and expects to cut communications costs by two thirds.
