Sanford, Fla. – Derive Systems’ fleet division Derive Efficiency, a leading developer of engine software to save fuel and increase safety, announced today it has chosen Meineke as its nationwide partner to install its efficiency and safety software for fleets across the U.S.
By installing Derive Efficiency’s software at any of its 900 service locations across the U.S., Meineke will provide a simple and cost-effective way for fleets to improve safety, save fuel, and reduce emissions. Derive Efficiency’s engine calibration technology can reduce fuel usage by 10 percent, while reducing carbon emissions by up to 16 percent.
“This partnership will help us better service our customers across the U.S., as well as help introduce us to fleets that have yet to experience the cost-saving capabilities of our software,” said Tom Kanewske, Senior Director for Business Development, Derive Systems. “Derive is enthusiastic about partnering with Meineke to provide fleets a simple and straightforward way to save money on fuel, getting the most value out of each vehicle.”
