USIC decreasing fuel costs, mitigating accidents, and improving driver safety with Derive’s auto technology
Derive Systems, a leading B2B and B2C automotive technology provider with over two million software installations on the road, announces its successful installation of customized vehicle software upgrades for USIC’s North American fleet. USIC is the most trusted name in underground utility damage prevention with over 75 million locates annually.
With over 9,000 utility vehicles in operation, USIC desired to decrease costs associated with fuel use, establish improved accident prevention measures to mitigate accident costs, improve productivity, and improve overall driver safety. Additionally, as a business that typically experiences high fleet driver turnover, USIC wanted to find a solution that would meet its goals without requiring extensive training to shift driver behavior.
“As part of the proactive approach USIC was looking for, we customized their fleet vehicle settings related to both forward and reverse speed and fuel consumption with a single ‘install-it-and-forget-it' solution,” Erica Fine, Senior Director Enterprise Sales at Derive explained. “Now, our client can experience guaranteed fuel savings and improved fleet safety and sustainability with one solution.”
“Our senior leadership couldn’t be more pleased with Derive’s technology and customer service and are glad to have chosen them to optimize our fleet operations,” said Phil Samuelson, USIC’s Fleet Leader and the 2018 Edward J. Bobit Professional Fleet Manager of the Year.
Derive provided a dedicated high-quality project team that, along with the client’s dedicated project team, enabled USIC to successfully install Derive calibration software on over 8,000 in-field and upfitter vehicles over a four-month period.
