Klein Steel Service Inc. Selects Vnomics as Intelligent Telematics Partner

Installs Vnomics' FleetKnowSys Solution on Fleet of Tractor Trailer Trucks

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Vnomics, Inc.®, a leading provider of Intelligent Telematics software that delivers real-time driver performance and truck diagnostic information for rapid ROI, announced today that Klein Steel Service Inc. has installed Vnomics' FleetKnowSys™ Intelligent Telematics solution on its fleet of trucks.

Klein Steel Service Inc., headquartered in Rochester, NY, is the region's premier steel service center with locations throughout New York State. The company is using FleetKnowSys to identify operational efficiencies and reduce maintenance costs, as well as to improve driver performance using the FleetKnowSys In-Cab Advisor™ system.

"We reviewed about a half a dozen fleet Telematics providers before deciding on the Vnomics solution," said David Feinstein, chief risk officer at Klein Steel. "We were impressed by the company's sophisticated technology, real-time response abilities and the opportunity that FleetKnowSys gives us to meet regulatory compliance, reduce paperwork, and better control our operating costs. As Intelligent Telematics evolves, Vnomics is well-positioned to be an industry leader and thus a significant partner in our future growth."

Klein Steel also noted, "The rapid ROI generated from the FleetKnowSys solution was beyond our expectations," said Joe Rodibaugh, logistics manager at Klein Steel. "Within a couple of weeks after driver training, we experienced a significant fuel cost savings return -- not to mention ongoing maintenance related savings. We expect full ROI from the system within a matter of months which will recoup our entire investment in FleetKnowSys."

A key feature of the FleetKnowSys solution is the In-Cab Advisor. With its real-time functionality and robust features, Klein indicated that the In-Cab Advisor was quickly embraced by their drivers who, by improving their overall performance, have generated significant fuel savings as well as gained confidence in receiving real-time information and advice if a maintenance issue arises.

Klein Steel's Customer Service and Sale Departments have also found value in using FleetKnowSys. A large LCD screen located in the sales and customer service area can display real-time views of truck locations. The sales team now has the real-time information to commit to a delivery based on truck location, which has increased overall customer satisfaction and revenue growth. In addition, customer service can see in real-time where a truck is located so that they can more accurately inform the customer of delivery time based on exact proximity to the drop-off location.

"Vnomics is viewed as an integral partner to Klein Steel that is vested in helping us achieve our goals -- it is really refreshing to have such a partner on our side. They really do go above and beyond to ensure their technology adds tangible value to our business," added Feinstein.
