An Efficient Solution to Calibrate Fleet Vehicles for Optimal Savings and Safety
SCT Fleet Solutions today announced it has changed its company name to Derive Efficiency. Derive Efficiency customizes the software of a fleet vehicle’s powertrain (engine and transmission) in order to operate the vehicle more efficiently and safely. Derive Efficiency’s software solution shifts the responsibility of fuel savings, safe driving, lower maintenance, and reduced emissions from the driver to the vehicle, making it the first and only active fleet solution in the industry.
“Our new company name and image reflect the evolution of our corporate fleet offering and our mission to customize a vehicle’s software for improved performance,” said Marissa Muller, VP of Marketing at Derive Systems. “We have designed our software so that within ten minutes a fleet vehicle’s powertrain can be customized for maximum savings and safety.”
Derive Efficiency calibrates a fleet vehicle’s powertrain by controlling fuel usage, reducing engine idle speed, optimizing torque and throttle parameters, and adjusting transmission shift points, among other adjustments. The vehicle calibration solution is customized to meet each fleet’s specific goals.
Customers include top-tier fleets ranging from a variety of industries, including: cable/telecom, home services, delivery services, retail, law enforcement, and government. These customers have realized a positive investment in fewer than six months and savings of up to 12% on fuel and 16% in carbon emissions—with no changes in driver behavior or hardware modifications required.
