Advanced Life Cycle Analysis Tool Gives ARI insights Users More Power to Make Better Data-Based Decisions When Selecting Fleet Vehicles

Mount Laurel, NJ (August 29, 2013) – ARI®, a leading global fleet services provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, is pleased to announce the reintroduction of its Life Cycle Analysis tool within its award-winning ARI insights® web-based and mobile fleet management system.

The new tool allows for a side-by-side view of up to four vehicles, and fleet managers have the power to choose and compare among a multitude of different variables – including lease terms, miles driven, maintenance costs, fuel and depreciation – to help them determine total cost of ownership and vehicle cost per mile. Safety and environmental ratings give fleet managers additional information they can use when choosing among vehicles.

“ARI’s clients can use this pre-ordering tool to compare vehicles and gain a better understanding about what is the right vehicle for their fleet and what that vehicle should cost, both at the time of acquisition and over the life of that vehicle,” said Tony Candeloro, ARI’s vice president of product development.

Primarily, the ARI insights system collects and integrates critical vehicle and driver data from around the world. The newly reintroduced Life Cycle Analysis tool, as well as others that allow for selector building, vehicle ordering, and production tracking, supplement the system’s analysis and reporting tools to make it one of the most comprehensive and advanced fleet management systems in the industry.

System development efforts and the implementation of the SAP HANATM in-memory technology have garnered ARI recognition through Constellation Research’s 2012 SuperNova Awards – “Data to Decisions” category, a Bronze Stevie® Award in the Tech Innovation of the Year category at the 10th Annual American Business Awards, and a 2012 Fleet Europe Industry Award.
