Cadec Global announced that long-time customer Pilgrim’s Pride Corporation (NYSE: PPC), the world’s second-largest chicken producer and a subsidiary of JBS USA, has upgraded to Cadec’s new PowerVue Enterprise system.
Formerly a user of Cadec’s Mobius product, Pilgrim’s elected to upgrade to PowerVue mainly to take advantage of its electronic Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (eDVIR) system, workflow and enhanced enterprise-wide integration, and reporting capabilities.
Pilgrim’s did evaluate other market offerings before deciding, according to James Bliss, IT analyst for Pilgrim’s.
“We looked at the usual suspects in fleet management,” said Bliss, “and came away even more impressed with PowerVue. In my opinion, no one can match Cadec’s architecture prowess and ease of use—for both drivers and operations staff.”
Bliss added that although it was not the primary driver in Pilgrim’s decision, the fact that the team could use the Cadec hardware currently installed in its vehicles allowed it to leverage previous investments, lowering cost of ownership.
PowerVue, an SaaS-based fleet management system, provides advanced fleet management features in a single, easy-to-use, secure SaaS platform with in-cab hardware designed specifically for the enterprise-class customer. Pilgrim’s has also subscribed to eDVIR, which enables drivers to complete paperless inspection reports compliant with FMCSA regulations; and SpeedTracker, which provides speed-by-road trip data to track driver behavior against established speed limits.
Pilgrim’s will begin deployment of all three systems in early 2013, including integration with SAP and Comdata’s Inter-Tax system for fuel tax filing.
