Priscilla ValdezMay 12, 2021

This week, Utilimarc announced the signing on of new customer, Avista Corp. to their Business Intelligence Platform for fleets. Avista was interested in creating a business case as well as being able to scale for electric vehicle data, a key aspect was to focus on integrating all of their organization’s fleet data systems into a single analytical platform and to ensure accurate meter insights in order to create a more effective fleet management process.

“We have struggled in the past with collecting data that wasn’t simply anecdotal when it came to planning our long-term electric vehicle acquisition and implementation strategy. We needed not only someone that was experienced in new technologies, but also that came with years of experience working with telematics and FMIS data sources. Utilimarc took our various data sources and incorporated. Them into a singe central reporting platform, which for us, helped drastically in terms of enhancing productivity and report accuracy. We’ve really enjoyed working with their team to strengthen every aspect of our fleet management strategy.”
– Greg Loew, Fleet Manager, Avista Corp.

The Results

Based on their need to make a business case for and need to scale for electric vehicle data, Avista was in search of a company with vast experience in telematics and FMIS data to help integrate all of their reporting into a single analytical environment. They chose Utilimarc based on the long-term expertise the company has with telematics and FMIS data sources.

A main goal for Avista was to be able to combine FMIS and telematics data to allow for proper maintenance scheduling and meter reads, allowing for a more effective fleet management process, as well as the reduction of wasted monetary resources.

With the integration of Utilimarc’s Business Intelligence platform, Avista is able to integrate all of their data sources into our BI platform – creating a central reporting system of trusted dashboards that all levels of fleet management can access and understand. We were also able to help implement a meter-based maintenance cycle, rather than time-based (when warranties expire), allowing for Avista to save money on necessary maintenance. Their meter data, now in a single analytical environment also allowed for their fleet management team to see exactly when and where booms were activated, just in case there should be any issues with equipment that were in need of a fast remedy.
