Established in 1903, Columbus Water Works, a combined utility company that provides drinking water and wastewater services as well as CSO services, has a large fleet of vehicles throughout various departments. Columbus Water Works needed to be able to track and manage their vehicles that provide service to more than 230,000 residents in a 250 square mile area, including the nearby Ft. Benning military base.
Columbus Water Works selected the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform after looking at several solutions due to its ease of use and robust functionality. Joey Murphy, Vice President of Finance and Customer Service for Columbus Water Works, said, "The NexTraq platform was very intuitive and provided all the ‘bells and whistles' we were looking for in a solution. Additionally, we really liked the idling and routing functionality available." Columbus Water Works proceeded with a pilot program and now has the NexTraq Fleet Tracking platform on all 133 vehicles in its fleet.
