Keith Schneider, president and CEO of Networkfleet Inc., said: "As the state looks to achieve accountability for fleet expenses, Networkfleet's comprehensive reporting capability will give the department the information it needs to understand how different vehicles in varying divisions and districts are being used, and how to apply that information to improve fleet efficiency."
