Chevin Fleet Solutions has signed an agreement with Northeast Utilities for the utility to use Chevin’s web-based fleet management software.

Northeast Utilities is New England’s largest electric and gas utility system. It will use Chevin’s FleetWave software to manage its fleet of more than 5,400 pieces of equipment across seven operating companies.

FleetWave will ultimately become Northeast Utilities enterprise fleet management information system, replacing two separate fleet systems and, as part of a sophisticated deployment strategy, will interface with more than a dozen disparate operating systems and service providers, Chevin said.

“We are very pleased to sign this agreement with Northeast Utilities. Over the last few years, we’ve dramatically expanded our client base in the utility sector and look forward to working with the Northeast Utility team to support their ongoing needs,” said Ron Katz, senior vice president-North American sales for Chevin. “The need to control costs and maximize equipment utilization in the utility sector are the key motivators behind Chevin’s growth in this area and FleetWave is proving to be highly effective in helping fleets to meet these important objectives.”
