Associated Grocers Upgrades to Cadec's PowerVue Enterprise Fleet Management Solution

Wholesale Grocery Distributor Rolling Out Solution to Entire Fleet

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - Feb 12, 2013) -    Cadec Global, which provides enterprise-class fleet management solutions, announced today that Associated Grocers of New England, the largest retailer-owned, wholesale grocery Distribution Center in New England, has upgraded to Cadec's PowerVue Enterprise solution. Formerly a user of Cadec's Mobius product, Associated Grocers chose to upgrade to PowerVue primarily because of its unique ability to provide fleet managers with driver and fleet activity information, to ensure company-wide standards of excellence.

Cadec's PowerVue is the most modern and flexible SaaS-based fleet management solution, providing all the best-in-class, advanced fleet management features in a single, easy-to-use, secure and reliable SaaS platform with innovative in-cab hardware designed specifically for the enterprise-class customer.

Associated Grocers has implemented sophisticated processes for measuring driver performance and creating incentive programs to ensure drivers meet or exceed certain standards. The company has earned a reputation for operational excellence in part due to those incentives. Its system depends upon detailed information supplied by fleet management software and on-board computers. Associated Grocers evaluated other fleet management vendors, but found that only Cadec could provide the data it required.

"We were very impressed when Cadec showed us all of the capabilities of PowerVue, especially its integration of real-time data," said Kevin Murray, Director of Transportation at Associated Grocers of New England. "PowerVue gives us the visibility we need into driver activity, vehicle performance, and routing and delivery schedules to make dynamic decisions so we can ensure safety and make the most efficient use of our vehicles and drivers. Cadec has been a great partner to Associated Grocers over the years, and we're excited about this upgrade."

"We are extremely pleased to continue our relationship with Associated Grocers," said Pete Allen, CEO of Cadec. "Associated Grocers is a great example of a fleet that understands the value of monitoring and measuring fleet activity in order to improve safety and efficiency. We know that PowerVue will meet Associated Grocers' needs as an enterprise-class solution, and are looking forward to helping them roll it out across the entire fleet."
