Azuga, the cloud-based, rewards-driven, connected fleet and driver behavior solution, announced its 1,000-customer milestone during the NAFA Fleet Management Association Expo in Orlando.

Azuga began the first quarter of 2015 with several large fleet deployments, each with more than 2,000 vehicles.

“We set out to shake up the traditional fleet telematics and mobile resource management industries, and we’re beginning to see our vision come to life with swift adoption from companies across different vertical industries and fleet sizes,” said Ananth Rani, co-founder and president of Azuga. “We can attest our rapid growth to the results our customers are experiencing with Azuga’s super accurate vehicle data, a social approach to fleet telematics and breakthrough pricing. No other company is taking a driver-rewards centric approach to increase productivity.”

Unlike traditional fleet telematics solutions, Azuga Fleet’s 69-cent per day pricing has made ROI realization simple and immediate.

“Before utilizing Azuga Fleet, we struggled to leverage the data our previous GPS system was providing in order to realize ROI, not to mention the high price of installs and monthly fees,” said Patti Middleton, fleet manager at United Mechanical Inc. “Azuga Fleet allowed us to cut operating costs, reduce risky driving behavior and reward our drivers for their excellent performance. More significantly, our accident rate has gone down by over 70 percent in the first year of using Azuga.”

The 1,000-customer milestone is marked on the heels of its latest product launch, Azuga Fleet Mobile, the industry’s first-ever driver rewards and gamification program designed to benefit both the company and driver through rewards. Drivers can compete with one another and win cash-back rewards by being the safest or most efficient driver in the fleet. It improves company culture by effortlessly changing driving behavior, and offers instant savings on operational costs.
