BC Ambulance Service gives Chevin blue light
Chevin’s web-based software, FleetWave, was chosen by BCAS to replace its existing fleet software, which was unable to support the changing demands of BCAS’ fleet of 575 plus ambulances and their 3,320 drivers and dispatchers.
BCAS serves approximately 4.3 million British Columbians across an expansive geographical area consisting of six regions, meaning its vital equipment is dispersed across 186 ambulance stations and maintained by more than 85 service centres, so the need to accurately equipment availability, performance and of course costs is paramount. With FleetWave in place, BCAS now has real-time visibility and management oversight of every element impacting its fleet operations.
‘Working with Chevin has been a very positive experience from our first demonstration, through the procurement phase through implementation, training and roll out,’ said Sonia Salkeld, director of IMB Client Services. ‘Chevin has provided us with a complete solution which we strongly believe will meet our future requirements as we look to potentially extend FleetWave’s use to manage our wide range of supplemental assets including radios, mobile CAD units, defibrillators, and station information.’
