How Consumers Energy Leverages Utilimarc’s BI and Fleet Analytics Platform
3000+ Trailers and Equipment
Fleet Analytics, Benchmarking, Fleet Lifecyle
Vehicle Usage, Vehicle Availability, EV mileage
Based on the need for additional insights regarding fleet performance and vehicle usage metrics, as well as additional reporting on core KPIs for different user groups, our team helped Consumers Energy implement our BI Enterprise solution as well as installing GEOTAB telematics devices for their fleet. By leading the installation project, our team is able to ensure that the deployment of these devices and the data collected from them is as it should be – allowing for deeper reporting and insights for all levels of fleet management.
A main goal for Consumers was to get high quality GPS data into their GIS system to successfully and more efficiently service customers – not just from a response standpoint, but also to ensure the optimization of their existing fleet.
With the integration of Utilimarc’s Business Intelligence platform, Consumers Energy is able to get high quality data insights into a single platform – resulting in accurate, holistic meter information, mileage/engine hours, safety and usage metrics in dedicated KPI reports across all of their user groups. We are also able to integrate with their SAP system data to create custom reporting solutions – one of which being a cost-per-downtime metric, measuring just how much each unit down will cost based on the time and cost per hour. In addition, the Utilimarc platform provides Consumers Energy with electric vehicle data that helps them scale for the future with performance metrics for a fleet pursuing electrification.
