Fleet Advantage, an innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and lifecycle cost management was named by Food Logistics as a Top 100 Software and Technology Provider in 2018, the fifth straight year the company has been included in the list. Each year, the FL100+ Top Software and Technology Providers list highlights the top technology companies for the global food and beverage supply chain.
The food and beverage supply chain is among the most competitive industries today, and providers must leverage technology resources to remain highly focused on optimum service and deliveries. Therefore, Food Logistics has recognized Fleet Advantage for its ATLAAS (Advanced Truck Lifecycle Administrative Analytics Software), the company’s innovative data analytics software.
ATLAAS offers comprehensive asset management solutions that include asset optimization, and complete lifecycle management offerings. The software’s recent enhancements – ATLAAS Unified, allow for even more features and functionality for food and beverage providers. ATLAAS Unified now enables private fleets and for-hire carriers to leverage intuitive dashboards instead of complicated spreadsheets and allows users to create their own custom view with the information that interests them most: financial data for CFOs, vehicle performance for fleet managers, and maintenance data for repair personnel.
Clients can now manage their entire fleet utilizing ATLAAS Unified, with views on everything from operational costs, maintenance and repair (M&R) data, replacement vehicle savings, vehicle servicing and histories; and the new platform is now mobile-responsive for on-the-go fleet management. ATLAAS Unified also offers visibility into a truck’s TIPPINGPOINT® – the point at which a truck reaches economic obsolescence, when it costs more to operate the current vehicle than to replace it with newer equipment. Clients can view a list of vehicles for which they would experience gains to their financial bottom line by disposing of an older truck and replacing with a newer unit. This data, combined with Fleet Advantage’s extensive experience in the used truck market, helps clients maximize the disposal value of the used vehicles.
“Technology resources have single-handedly reshaped the way food and beverage providers make deliveries to their customers in today’s ultra-competitive business landscape,” said Brian Holland, president and CFO of Fleet Advantage. “For years, our ATLAAS software has provided this competitive advantage to the supply chain, but with our recent enhancements, food and beverage providers can achieve a higher level of satisfaction from customers and realize even greater savings to their bottom line through stronger asset management of their trucks.”
Since inception, ATLAAS has helped customers save an estimated $75 million, and as a result Fleet Advantage now services 28 of the top 100 private fleets in the country. ATLAAS has over six billion miles of data as part of the company’s tracking and analysis and monitors over 40,000 vehicles offering advantages in benchmarking of operating costs and providing monthly, quarterly and annual fleet reporting for Total Cost of Ownership.
