GREENSBORO, N. C. – September 6, 2011 – James City County, Virginia will install six Gasboy® Islander™ PLUS fleet management systems at their refueling sites for fire trucks, police vehicles, heavy equipment and mowers.
The five existing sites are upgrading from Gasboy Series 1000 systems to the new Islander PLUS. Administrators have also chosen the Islander PLUS system, along with two Gasboy fuel dispensers, for one newly constructed refueling site.
The Islander PLUS cardlock system limits access to fuel to authorized drivers and vehicles and is compatible with multiple access technologies, including contactless systems. It is an advanced web-based site fuel controller and a sophisticated island fleet card reader, designed for the unique requirements of unattended fueling. The Islander PLUS interfaces seamlessly with Fleet Head Office management software and other systems to proactively manage vehicle maintenance based on vehicle data.
“This has been a simple transition to a more modern and secure system that is monitored,” said William (Buddy) Stewart, Fleet and Equipment Administrator for James City County. “The new technology helps us better manage our fuel, vehicles and equipment.”
Based in Williamsburg, Va., James City County was the first permanent English settlement in America. It sponsored the first colonial government on the continent. The General Services group is responsible for capital projects, grounds maintenance, solid waste/recycling, storm water management, leaf collection, and street lights in addition to fleet and equipment maintenance and fueling.
Gasboy turnkey fleet fueling and management solutions will be on exhibit at the American Public Works Association (APWA) show, September 18-21, Colorado Convention Center, Denver and also at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show, October 2 - 4, McCormick Place, Chicago.
