Ericsson Gives Donlen Innovation Award

June 04, 2015 - Press Release

Donlen has received the Ericsson North America's 2015 Innovation Award, the fleet management company has announced.

Ericsson presented Donlen with the supplier award during its annual Ericsson Supplier Day event held May 19-20 in Plano, Texas. The award recognizes a supplier that embraces innovative thinking and actively challenges the status quo. It also acknowledges a commitment to process improvement and continued investments in the latest innovation and technologies that result in time and cost-saving solutions.

"Donlen Corporation partnered with Ericsson to develop a customized GPS/telematics fleet offering for the Ericsson North America fleet of vehicles," said Brad Bohnen, Ericsson's head of fleet management. "This customized program allowed Ericsson to reduce operating costs and increase the safety of our fleet operators."

Donlen also developed a new consultative service that provided Ericsson with the necessary administrative back-office support to effectively manage the day-to-day operational aspects of the program. This approach resulted in more efficient operations, reduced costs and lower accident rates, Bohnen said.

"Being awarded Ericsson's supplier award for Innovation was a significant accomplishment for Donlen," said Tom Callahan, Donlen's president. "When Ericsson, a high-tech world leader in communication technologies, recognizes Donlen's technology, it validates that our fleet innovation empowers customers to do more and reduce costs. We are honored to receive this recognition."
