Comdata and Credera’s Business Intelligence Collaboration Receives TDWI 2014 Best Practices Award
Comdata has been recognized as a 2014 Best Practice Award Winner in the Right-Time Business Intelligence (BI) and Analytics category for its FleetAdvance solution by The Data Warehousing Institute (TDWI), the premier provider of in-depth, high-quality education and training BI and data warehousing.
Comdata built FleetAdvance to enable commercial transportation fleets to make smarter fueling decisions by analyzing the quality of a fueling transaction against other alternatives. FleetAdvance utilizes real-time transaction data to provide simple, actionable information the moment fuel purchases occur through real-time dashboards and scorecards, analytical views of historical performance, and route planning tools. The solution empowers fleet companies to optimize routes, better manage fuel costs, and make smarter purchasing decisions.
“FleetAdvance demonstrates our commitment to payment innovation in the fleet industry, providing additional value to what is already one of the most trusted fuel transaction,” says Randy Morgan, Executive Vice President – Managing Director, Fleet Commercial Payments for Comdata.
“We are thrilled the TDWI panel of judges recognized Comdata for setting a new standard in Right-Time BI and Analytics,” said Scott Covington, Partner and Vice President, Credera. “Credera is grateful for our partnership with Comdata and the collaborative efforts taken to build an industry-leading solution.”
Comdata recognized an opportunity to provide their customer competitive advantage through analytics. The FleetAdvance platform is encouraging a different way of thinking about fuel management and it changes the game for all types of fleet companies.
“Credera is grateful for our strategic partnership with Comdata,” said Covington. “Together, our teams are having fun building innovative industry-first business solutions that drive significant value for customers.”
