Donlen-Presented-Ericsson-Supplier-AwardNorthbrook, IL — Donlen, the fleet industry’s most customer-centric and technically integrated provider of financing and fleet management solutions, received the 2015 Ericsson “Innovation Award.” Ericsson in North America presented Donlen with a supplier award for Innovation during its annual Ericsson Supplier Day event held May 19-20 in Plano, Texas. The supplier award in the category of Innovation is targeted to recognize a supplier that embraces innovative thinking and actively challenges the status quo. The award acknowledges a commitment to process improvement and continued investments in the latest innovation and technologies that result in time and cost-saving solutions.

Brad Bohnen Head of Fleet Management, Ericsson said “Donlen partnered with Ericsson to develop a customized GPS/telematics fleet offering for the Ericsson Region North America fleet of vehicles. This customized program allowed Ericsson to reduce operating costs and increase the safety of our fleet operators. In addition, after listening to Ericsson’s desired service requirements, Donlen developed a new Consultative Service offering, which provided Ericsson with the necessary administrative back-office support to effectively manage the day-to-day operational aspects of the program. This consultative approach resulted in more efficient operations, reduced costs and lower accident rates.”

“Being awarded Ericsson’s supplier award for Innovation was a significant accomplishment for Donlen,” Tom Callahan, Donlen president, said. “When Ericsson, a high-tech world leader in communication technologies, recognizes Donlen’s technology, it validates that our fleet innovation empowers customers to do more and reduce costs. We are honored to receive this recognition.”

“Donlen works hard to help each of our customers work more efficiently,” Todd Welle, Donlen’s regional vice president of client relations, said. “We listen, and through our flexible technology platforms, we can deliver a personalized approach to help Ericsson achieve its corporate goals.”
