“We needed a more streamlined and efficient way to manage our large bus fleet with multiple repair shops. From data management to reporting, we were looking for a solution that would help us optimize our resources, make sure repairs and PMs were managed and performed on time, and that we could better manage and track our inventoried parts.” – Paul Grosselfinger, MCPS Fleet Manager
Having used collectiveFleet in a previous role, Paul experienced the benefits of Collective Data’s fleet management system, he believed it would be a strong solution for Marion County Public Schools as well.
The ability for Collective Data’s fleet management system to adapt to their specific requirements and real-time reporting were key factors in Paul and the MCPS team’s decision to implement collectiveFleet. With the offered flexibility and customization options, Collective Data worked closely with MCPS to set up reporting formats tailored to their needs. The system was also configured to allow easy allocaiton of buses across different schools and to automatically alert drivers when preventative maintenance is coming due. By implementing collectiveFleet, MCPS has been able to streamline fleet processes, stay ahead of preventative maintenance, accurately track parts inventory and improve technician productivity with time tracking.
