Providing a Central Fleet Data Hub to One of the Largest Cities in Florida

About the Client

At the present time, the City of Fort Lauderdale’s population is 182,000 with the city’s fleet comprised of approximately 1,750 vehicles and equipment consisting of anything from automobiles, vans, pickups, bucket trucks, dump trucks, compressor trucks, backhoes, trenchers, loaders, cranes, etc. to Fire Department pumpers, Rescue and aerial ladders as well as Police Department marked and unmarked vehicles. The fleet has a current replacement cost of nearly $20 million dollars.

The Challenge

The City of Fort Lauderdale needed a flexible central data hub to provide fleet management that would work and integrate with their parts provider in order to streamline work orders, parts and labor all in one place.

The Solution

The ability for Collective Data’s fleet management system to be configured to their specific requirements, integrate with other systems and bring all their data to one place to provide real-time reporting were key factors in the City’s decision to implement collectiveFleet. With the flexibility and customization options offered, Collective Data worked closely with the City of Fort Lauderdale to set up dashboards, custom fields, billing reports and integrations. “The people at Collective Data and the way they had dedicated time to helping us has been a real high point during this process.” – Drew Newstrom, Fleet Manager, The City of Fort Lauderdale
