— KONE International, a manufacturer of elevators, escalators, and automatic building doors, has selected Chevin Fleet Solutions’ FleetWave software to run its global fleet. KONE had sought a computer system capable of increasing the efficiency of its worldwide fleet operation. Because FleetWave is Web-based, it can be accessed from anywhere in the world – the only requirement is an Internet connection.FleetWave will help KONE manage a fleet of 12,000 vehicles across 18 countries. FleetWave can be translated into multiple languages — KONE has already translated the application into French.The system also allows the user to redesign screens, build queries, and generate reports.Although KONE’s main fleet operation is based in Belgium, all its sites throughout the world will now be able to view FleetWave in their own language and instantly pull off information they require, instead of waiting for it to be sent from head office. In addition FleetWave will be able to process invoices from external suppliers (leasing companies, fuel cards, repairers, tires, etc.), verify the amounts, and then export this data through for payment, thereby eliminating duplication of ef-fort throughout the company.
