Cascadia supported one of Metro Vancouver’s cities to implement a GPS & Telematics solution to optimize vehicle fleet operations. The Cascadia team worked closely with multiple vendors on customizations to the program while developing a transition and sustainment plan to move into operation.
Cascadia completed the following activities during the engagement:
•Worked closely with City staff to complete the retrofitting of over 1,100 vehicles in total, across multiple departments
•Managed two vendors and worked closely with key City resources and shared services in developing a custom tablet-based driver display for employee sanitation department use
•Completed a 4-month pilot program of in-vehicle alerts and the subsequent next phase of implementation following the successful pilot
•Developed a Sustainment Plan to support the transition to operations with Program Governance, supporting templates, and documentation to assist with knowledge transfer and training
As a result of the program, the City experienced a reduction in emissions, fuel usage, speeding and seat belt infractions. The City further enhanced their reporting capabilities, optimized work planning in sanitation collections and supported a reduction in annual insurance-related claims by hundreds of thousands of dollars. The City continues to find new opportunities to use the data, driver displays, and in-vehicle alerts to enhance the efficiency of their fleet and operations.
