Wheels, Inc., a leader in the automotive fleet management and services industry, was named number 83 on the 2016 InformationWeek Elite 100 list of the top technology companies in the U.S.

The prestigious InformationWeek Elite 100 list is published annually and spotlights the power of innovative business technologies provided by some of the world's best-known companies.  Wheels has now been included on InformationWeek's rankings for 15 of the past 16 years.

Wheels' inclusion on this year's list was primarily based on the introduction of its newly redesigned online fleet management tool, FleetView.  The online portal and analytics dashboard offers predictive analysis capabilities, data visualization techniques, drilldown features and extensive reporting. Fleet data is presented in a way that can be digested and understood more easily and quickly, and information can be explored across strategic, tactical and transactional dimensions.

 "FleetView houses powerful, dynamic and intuitive tools and features that enable clients to easily judge their fleet's performance, identify opportunities for optimization and take effective action," said Tim O'Hara, chief information officer at Wheels. "Wheels has a long tradition of being recognized by InformationWeek and we are extremely honored that the publication has yet again recognized our commitment to providing innovative, value-add technologies for our clients."

This is InformationWeek's 28th year identifying and honoring the nation's most innovative users of information technology. The InformationWeek Elite 100 research tracks the technology-based investments, strategies, and results of some of the best-known organizations in the country. Unique among corporate rankings, the InformationWeek Elite 100 spotlights the power of business technology innovation.

"As business success becomes even more dependent on the ability to innovate in information technology, being represented on the InformationWeek Elite 100 list is one of the biggest honors a company can achieve," said Susan Nunziata, editorial director of InformationWeek. "It's a validation of efforts by the business to make IT a game changer."
