Gasboy announced that James City County, Va., will install six of its 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 also have chosen the Islander Plus system, along with two Gasboy fuel dispensers, for one newly constructed refueling site.
The Islander Plus cardlock system is designed to limit access to fuel to authorized drivers and vehicles and is compatible with multiple access technologies, including contactless systems. According to Gasboy, it is an advanced Web-based site fuel controller and a sophisticated island fleet card reader designed for the unique requirements of unattended fueling. Gasboy says 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,” says William “Buddy” Stewart, fleet and equipment administrator for James City County. “The new technology helps us better manage our fuel, vehicles and equipment.”
The James City County General Services group is responsible for capital projects, grounds maintenance, solid waste/recycling, stormwater management, leaf collection and street lights, in addition to fleet and equipment maintenance and fueling.
