A new events engine tool in the latest update of Chevin’s fleet and asset management software, FleetWave, allows operations to rapidly design and automate alerts, reminders, and other messages that are sent to their workers.

FleetWave’s “events engine” helps streamline fleet communications by allowing users to build rules that will automatically trigger and send messages via e-mail or text to drivers, technicians, and the workforce.

These messages help regulate workflows and improve the visibility of information such as service reminders, medicals, regulatory compliance requirements, and much more. For example, fleet operators can use the events engine to automatically create and send invoices to customers, set alerts for when services are due, auto-generate orders when a part is “out of stock,” and even schedule a vehicle for repair and send an e-mail automatically from the system to relevant personnel.

The new enhancement makes it incredibly simple to design, style, and brand the messages triggered by user-created events. Users can now enhance message content with tables, images and font styles, colors, and more, without the need to learn any code. 

Ron Katz, senior vice president, North American Sales at Chevin, explains:

“FleetWave’s events engine allows users to automate alerts, reminders, and other processes as a very effective means to help reduce fleet administration and ensure organizations communicate information efficiently.

“Users can directly create, schedule, and send messages and e-mails directly from the software system and immediately set alerts and report findings. It helps reduce administrative time and the related costs, improve control and compliance, as well as reduce the risk of data entry errors and eliminate inefficient reporting.

“Now, with this new enhancement, organizations can further reduce workload by quickly creating messages that provides information visibly and more clearly but take less time to construct, even if they do not have any knowledge of coding.

“The latest enhancement is an example of how Chevin continually updates and improves its products to address industry trends and meet our clients’ needs.”

The new event engine tool will be made available to FleetWave users in mid-spring.
