USA: Propel IT has announced a new collaboration with Qualcomm, wherein People IT’s FuelOpps is integrated with Qualcomm’s Mobile Computing Platforms (MCPs) and leverages data from Qualcomm’s Performance Monitoring application to give fleet managers and drivers a more accurate and easy-to-use view of their fuel efficiency. FuelOpps also has an optional driver incentive system, which rewards drivers for improving their efficiency rating.
FuelOpps is made available to fleets using Qualcomm’s MCP50, MCP100, MCP110 and MCP200, each of which delivers Qualcomm’s industry-leading applications for fleet management. Fleets using Qualcomm’s Performance Monitoring application with Fuel Manager, as well as FuelOpps, can create driver performance incentive programs that can lower turnover. The integrated solution also offers additional views of driver performance based on engine specifications, load types, geography and climate. Trucking companies have to ability to use both the ratings and rewards system, or integrate the ratings systems into their own internal incentive plan.
Yunsu Park, Propel IT’s CTO, stated that, “FuelOpps rates drivers based on the key factors that affect efficiency. FuelOpps gives all drivers in a fleet the ability to improve their rating and earn rewards, regardless of the age of the vehicle, load or climate conditions.”
Norm Ellis, vice president of sales, services and marketing for Qualcomm Enterprise Services, stated that, “By collaborating with best-in-class third-party providers, such as Propel IT, we continue to expand our fleet management offerings to address emerging customer requests and needs. With fuel efficiency top of mind for fleet managers today, the availability of FuelOpps, as a complement to the fuel management benefits of our Performance Monitoring application, delivers helpful and actionable information to fleets to drive greater efficiency and streamline operations.”
