MONTREAL, CANADA – June 27, 2012 – FleetMind Solutions, Inc., the award-winning technology leader for fleet management solutions, announced the deployment of its solution at Ohio’s Kimble Recycling & Disposal (formerly J&J Refuse). Kimble delivers dependable, cost-effective and environmentally responsible waste management services to residential, commercial and industrial customers in 20 counties in eastern Ohio.
“As part of their ongoing drive for operational excellence, Kimble came to us for a fleet management solution that would help them improve their overall fleet operations,” said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. “Specifically, they wanted to ensure the highest levels of customer service, safety and route efficiencies. We are proud to work with them to realize their progressive vision of fleet operational excellence.”
FleetMind deployed a comprehensive fleet management solution that addressed the following Kimble criteria:
- Improved service verification – Kimble uses their FleetMind solution to verify each vehicle’s stops, its real-time location and progress, and whether or not the driver will need help to complete his route on a timely basis.
- Real-time visual tracking – The FleetMind system is connected from the vehicles to the Kimble back office systems where it enables the company capture everything that is happening with the truck – including driver behavior, truck diagnostics and service specifics – in real-time.
- Enhanced safety – By using the FleetMind system, Kimble managers now have a clear view into all driving activity to reinforce safe driving and to respond more effectively to inquiries from the general public.
- More sustainable and efficient operations – Real-time monitoring of driver behavior and driving patterns allows Kimble managers to influence and educate drivers on more fuel and emissions-friendly driving approaches.
