Samaritan’s Purse Deploys FleetWave

May 3, 2010- Press Release

FITCHBURG, MA - Samaritan's Purse has recently deployed Chevin Fleet Solutions' Web-based enterprise fleet management information system, FleetWave to gain control over their global fleet running costs while allowing real-time access of complete fleet operational and performance information across more than 20 countries around the world. 

For more than 35 years, Samaritan's Purse has provided emergency relief as well as community development and medical services in an effort to break the cycle of poverty for victims of war, famine, natural disasters and disease across the worlds' most troubled regions.

Using Chevin's web-based enterprise fleet management information system FleetWave, Samaritan's Purse is now reaping the benefits of the most sophisticated and flexible fleet management system available.  Samaritan's Purse maintains a diverse fleet of more than 350 vehicles in more than 20 countries using internal maintenance facilities while maintaining driver and accident management oversight made necessary by stringent governance requirements, all the while monitoring and managing fleet utilization and operational readiness in a multi-lingual and multi-currency environment.

FleetWave's unique asset-centric and completely flexible architecture supports these complex fleet management needs while allowing Samaritan's Purse to constantly view and administer comprehensive vehicle, assignment and preventive maintenance compliance.  Leveraging complete vehicle details from acquisition through disposal as well as statutory driver licensing details; FleetWave has replaced Samaritan's Purse disparate and non-integrated databases with a single integrated system that meets each offices "in country" requirements while providing consolidating visibility and fleet management oversight with a single application utilized across the world.  

As a true enterprise fleet management system, FleetWave provides Samaritan's Purse with harmonized control of all fleet operating details and as a result, has dramatically streamlined vehicle oversight across their global organization, allowing them to optimize vehicle inventory and support services resulting in continued fleet improvements and costs savings.  'Although their requirements were extremely diverse, Samaritan's Purse fleet management needs could be easily accommodated with our flexible web-based solution,' said Ron Katz, Senior Vice President of North American Sales for Chevin.  Additionally, 'with FleetWave's uniquely adaptable capabilities, Samaritan's Purse future needs and requirements have been seamlessly accommodated without the need for expensive and time consuming programming.'  As with many of Chevin's clients, 'Samaritan's Purse has realized a rapid return on their software investment and continues to reap tremendous fleet operating savings across their global fleet.'

Chevin Fleet Solutions is a global provider of dedicated fleet management solutions. Chevin developed the world's first true web-based fleet management system, FleetWave in 2000, as well as pioneering revolutionary data consolidation functionality to make fleet and workshop operations simpler and more controllable. Meanwhile the company continues to market its class-leading 'desk-top' RoadBASE fleet management system, aimed at small to mid-sized fleets.
