FITCHBURG, MA — National Linen announced that it choose Web-based FleetWave to help manage more than 21 maintenance facilities across the Southeastern United States. National Linen Service is one of North America’s largest linen service providers processing more than 1.3 billion linen items each year. Servicing their client base out of 8 plants and more than 30 distribution centers, National Linen needed enhanced visibility and improved cost controls over their growing fleet. Using the flexibility of FleetWave, National Linen will, for the first time, link all of their maintenance facilities together, allowing them to share resources, reduce on hand parts inventories and significantly improve maintenance practices and compliance. National Linen had extensive fleet management requirements, from complete asset and life cycle management, workshop, inventory, purchasing, warranty and campaign management, driver management (including DOT and hours of service compliance), accident and risk management and integrated fuel management. Now the fleet management team will be able to manage their diverse fleet using information rather than instinct, dramatically enhancing fleet oversight and savings. With FleetWave’s uniquely user definable capabilities, 100 percent of the National Linen’s specific requirements have been met, without the need for costly and time-consuming development. With deployment over the company’s Intranet, National Linen’s fleet management team are able to access FleetWave from anywhere at anytime, providing real-time reporting and query capabilities. They can also present remote and casual users with accurate and timely information regarding fleet conditions, scheduled maintenance and compliance statistics.
