Fleet Advantage, the U.S. transportation fleet solution provider has unveiled new enhancements to their ATLAAS software, a solution that has helped fleets better manage their transportation assets and financing. ATLAAS has been in a constant state of flux over the last five years. “It was initially a platform that we put together for our personal needs, because we were looking to understand the performance of the assets while doing lifecycle management,” said Jim Griffin, COO and CTO of Fleet Advantage. “So we needed data to help us understand how those assets were performing, from the fuel economy perspective.
To understand costs better, the company has built integrations in its ATLAAS platform, helping put all the costs into one house. Customers can now operate out of the same data structures, allowing finance to get costs based on the true operational performance. This enhanced version of ATLAAS is now called ATLAAS Unified - symbolizing its extension from being about performance, to now adding costs to the mix.
“We bring costs to the unit level, and also break it down to the cost-per-mile level which you can then aggregate in a variety of different charts and dashboards. From a fleet perspective, that is the biggest functional enhancement we did to the platform - with the addition of all the new data from different sectors of operations and finance,” said Griffin.
Since inception, ATLAAS has helped clients save nearly $75 million, with the company servicing 28 of the top 100 private fleets in the U.S. “We have almost seven billion miles on our database. We are collecting data off 40,000 units a month, and are getting about an additional 100 million miles every month added to the database,” Griffin said. “This allows us to benchmark operating costs within industry verticals and use predictive models to locate the tipping points.”
