DecisionPoint Systems Completes Deployment of Fleet Control at Warren Distributing
High Customer Satisfaction From Improved Service Levels and Increased Productivity
FOOTHILL RANCH, CA, May 29, 2012 — DecisionPoint Systems, Inc. DPSI 0.00% , a leading provider of Enterprise Mobility and RFID solutions, today announced that it has completed the deployment of its fleet control solution at Warren Distributing, a beer distributor serving New Jersey markets with an 100 truck fleet. Fleet Control is a long haul truck fleet management system that DecisionPoint developed and co-markets with Verizon.
Implementing Verizon Fleet Control
The Fleet Control integrated solution platform is designed to meet all of the core business requirements for fleet management. Fleet Control components include: DOT Electronic Hours-of-Service, Automatic Vehicle Location, IFTA and State Mileage reporting, Daily Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR), Comprehensive Proof-of-Delivery solution, DecisionPoint’s proprietary instant talk, always on, Grapevine(TM) Push-to-Talk, and DecisionPoint MobileCare(TM) services. The Verizon fleet control hours of service and vehicle management applications are provided by Xata Corporation.
“Fleet Control has transformed our operations,” said Michael Holden, Warren’s Director of Technology. “We now have complete real time visibility into our distribution and logistics operations which has allowed us to streamline our distribution operations. This has resulted in improved service levels to our customers and improved productivity throughout our delivery systems. DecisionPoint’s technicians supported and assisted in the training of over 100 drivers and managers. In addition, we are a multi-site company, and with DecisionPoint’s 24-hour support desk, we no longer need in-house technical support personnel at each of our sites. DecisionPoint deployed the new system flawlessly in approximately four weeks. I do not know how we could have done this without Fleet Control, DecisionPoint and our carrier Verizon.”
“We are delighted to have helped Warren Distributing realize the many benefits that have resulted from their early adoption of DecisionPoint’s powerful Fleet Control logistics management tool,” said Brent Felker, Vice President of DecisionPoint’s Field Mobility Practice.
Rob Pallante, Director, Business Development at Xata Corp., added, “Xata’s strategic alliance with Decision Point and Verizon continues to provide fleets with scalable mobile fleet optimization and compliance solutions that give our mutual clients like Warren Distribution a competitive advantage over their peers.”
