The subsidiary won the contract through the National Joint Powers Alliance, a 48,000-member group purchasing agency for the education, government and nonprofit space.
Networkfleet will implement a GPS tracking system to help the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department manage vehicles used for road construction and maintenance, law enforcement, transportation and administration.
“As the state looks to achieve accountability for fleet expenses, Networkfleet's comprehensive reporting capability will give the department the information it needs to understand how different vehicles in varying divisions and districts are being used, and how to apply that information to improve fleet efficiency,” said Keith Schneider, Networkfleet’s president and CEO.
The subsidiary will help the department evaluate vehicle usage and identify problems with maintenance, said Danny Keene, the department’s head of equipment and procurement.
Networkfleet said it won the contract because of its experience in engine diagnostics, installation, customer support, training and warranty.
