Indiana, Maine, Minnesota and Washington have all announced contracts with Maximus Inc. to deploy software for managing their vehicle fleets.
Maximus of Reston, Va., will earn $1.7 million from the four contracts combined, a company spokesperson said.
In Indiana, Maximus' FleetFocus software will help the state manage its fleet of more than 10,000 vehicles and 50 maintenance facilities. The company's software will convert fleet management from three legacy systems into one common database with standardized, statewide coding.
Three agencies ' the Natural Resources Department, Transportation Department and Minnesota Travel Management Services ' will implement FleetFocus in Minnesota. Together, the three agencies have a fleet of more than 16,000 vehicles. The Transportation Department also implemented a Maximus fuel management system, which is fully integrated in its fleet management software.
Maine's Transportation Department, which had sought a scalable solution to manage its central fleet and remote locations, will implement both FleetFocus and Maximus' enterprise asset management software. The statewide implementation will track more than 5,000 vehicles.
Washington's General Administration Department's Motor Pool program also will implement Maximus' fleet management software. Motor Pool provides daily rental and assigned vehicles to other state agencies. Motor Pool manages 1,400 vehicles, but expects that number to double in the next four years, according to Maximus.Ethan Butterfield is a staff writer for
