Northbrook, IL — Donlen, the fleet industry’s most comprehensive provider of integrated financing and asset management solutions, announced today that they have been named as recipient of the 2013 CIO 100 by IDG’s CIO magazine. The 26th annual award program recognizes organizations around the world that exemplify the highest level of operational and strategic excellence in information technology (IT).

“For 26 years now, the CIO 100 awards have honored the innovative use of technology to deliver genuine business value,” said Maryfran Johnson, Editor in Chief of CIO magazine & events. “Our 2013 winners are an outstanding example of the transformative power of IT to drive everything from revenue growth to competitive advantage.”

“Compliance is a moving target. The rules keep changing, it’s different across states, and the paperwork involved is enormous,” said Dennis Straight, Donlen SVP and CIO. “Working together with Hertz Equipment Rental operations, Donlen’s IT group streamlined a cumbersome process and developed Donlen Logistics. Giving fleets ways to streamline their processes is our main focus.”

Donlen is using their proprietary technology to greatly increase the productivity of their customers. Donlen Logistics will help customers meet US Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Record of Duty compliance and increase fleet safety and productivity with dispatching and routing capability. A key point is that it provides online access reducing the need for records storage.

The recipients of this year’s CIO 100 award were selected through a three-step process. First, companies filled out an online application form detailing their innovative IT and business initiatives. Next, a team of judges reviewed the applications in depth, looking for unique practices and substantial results. Finally, CIO editors reviewed the judges’ recommendations and voted on the final 100.

Complete coverage of the 2013 CIO 100 awards will be online at http://www.cio100.com on August 1, 2013 and in the August 1st issue of CIO magazine.
