Donlen and Ericsson Collaborate to Achieve Return on Investment

Northbrook, IL, February 06, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Donlen, the fleet industry's most comprehensive provider of integrated financing and asset management solutions, today released their case study of Ericsson’s six-month DriverPoint Telematics trial titled, "Return on Investment: Ericsson Sees Results with DriverPoint® Telematics."

Throughout the trial, there were widespread improvements in driver behavior, fuel economy, and safe driving patterns. This was due in large part to a new program developed between Donlen and Ericsson, DriverPoint Consultative Services.

According to Brad Bohnen, Ericsson Head of Fleet Management – North America, “DriverPoint Consultative Services, an extension of the consultation already provided to Ericsson for other aspects of our fleet, was a true collaboration between Donlen and Ericsson.”

Over a series of discovery meetings and discussions, Ericsson and the DriverPoint team determined the primary areas of focus and how to best meet the needs of the Ericsson fleet. Now, Donlen not only administers DriverPoint for Ericsson – a service that is standard with any DriverPoint implementation – but also manages the extraordinary amount of data provided and report back to Ericsson on a regular basis.

“Managing the data provided by such technology is key to a successful outcome. Not all data is equal; some data points require immediate action in order to satisfy our company’s progressive risk management concerns,” said Bohnen.

The case study is filled with informative graphics and analysis, including.

· Dealer delivery findings
· Alternative-fuel feasibility using driver geographic footprint
· Vendor efficiency and preventive maintenance downtime
· Driver behavior and idle times
· Accident versus non-accident analysis
· Return on Ericsson’s investment
· Future areas of concentration

“Using the massive amount of data that DriverPoint provides, we were able to quantify Ericsson’s return on their initial investment and project potential future savings,” said Tom Sloan, Director of Analytical Product Management. “One of the more interesting parts of the trial was the analysis of driver oil-change downtime by vendor. We were then able to present Ericsson with a cost versus time analysis, and they in turn can direct drivers appropriately. Armed with this type of data, Ericsson can continue to see great results using DriverPoint.”
