Donlen-FleetWeb-Performance-thumbNorthbrook, IL — Donlen, the fleet industry’s most comprehensive provider of integrated financing and asset management solutions, today announced enhancements to their award-winning FleetWeb® platform.

FleetWeb has undergone a major architecture implementation, with no downtime and seamless to customers. This enhancement works in the background to supercharge performance for users. FleetWeb’s overall performance, page load times, and report run times equal – or many times exceed – the world’s most efficiently run websites.

  • Uptime: 99.9% − world-class performance
  • Average page load time: 341 ms − about 1/3 of a second
  • Average report run time: 400 ms − 4/5 of a second

“We’re very pleased with the performance gains we’ve realized with this architecture,” said Dennis Straight, Donlen SVP and CIO. “However, we’re not stopping here. Despite these world-class numbers, we’re continuing to make infrastructure improvements. We’ll have additional updates early in Q1 of 2014 which will further improve uptime and performance.”

Users may notice a new “grid” technology interface in many areas within FleetWeb, including a new reporting tool which was launched earlier this month. The benefits of this are numerous, including:

  • Screens with large and/or complex grids will load up to 135x faster see the chart for our browser test results).
  • Screens will support larger data sets than before.
  • New grids have built-in sort, hide, and move column capabilities.
  • Grid column widths can be adjusted based on user preference.
  • User efficiency improvements such as the addition of a “check all” box on the grid.

“We’re rolling out this technology in a phased approach,” Straight went on to say. “The first areas were chosen because they gain the most efficiency due to the large amount of data they hold.”

Additional grids within FleetWeb will be converted in later phases and any new grid that is developed going forward will use this technology. This is an exciting user interface upgrade and performance efficiency that will boost both internal Donlen and external customer productivity.

“This is truly cutting edge technology,” said Straight. “The IT team is continually looking for ways to make FleetWeb better for customers. We built FleetWeb’s infrastructure in such a way that we can make enhancements in the background at any time without any downtime for customers.”
