San Diego, June 8, 2011 — Wireless fleet management firm Networkfleet announced that Baltimore Gas and Electric has chosen Networkfleet's telematics solution integrated with AssetWorks FleetFocus asset management software to track GPS location and report on maintenance issues for 400 utility service vehicles.
BGE intends to use the joint technology solution to streamline maintenance scheduling and reduce vehicle downtime.
BGE serves more than 1.2 million electric customers and more than 640,000 gas customers in the Baltimore-Metro area, including all or part of ten Central Maryland counties.
BGE will install Networkfleet with AssetWorks FleetFocus integration primarily on heavy-duty vehicles. The integration of Networkfleet's telematics technology with FleetFocus gives BGE quick and easy access to vehicle location, engine diagnostics and vehicle maintenance alerts without having to switch to another application.
Additionally, real-time odometer readings are sent directly from the vehicle to FleetFocus, which saves time, increases accuracy and allows for timely scheduling of preventative maintenance.
