DUBLIN and BOSTON, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Fleetmatics Group PLC (NYSE: FLTX), a leading global provider of mobile workforce solutions for service-based businesses of all sizes delivered as software-as-a-service (SaaS), today announced it has partnered with Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) for the 2015 season. As part of this agreement, Fleetmatics will work with select MiLB teams across the U.S. to demonstrate to local small businesses and sponsors how the company's workforce management solution can be performance enhancing.
Throughout the season, Fleetmatics, which will also serve as the Official Fleet Tracking Software of Minor League Baseball, will host a Sponsor/Small Business Appreciation Day for local small businesses in 20 markets. Each event will provide these valued members of their communities a unique VIP ballpark experience. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with other local businesses, see Fleetmatics in action with a live demo, and create their own baseball card, among other engaging activities.
"MiLB is one of the most road-traveled sports and seeing as we are one of the most road-traveled brands, it's a home run for both parties," said Kathleen Finato, Chief Marketing Officer at Fleetmatics. "We look forward to meeting with other MiLB sponsors, many of which are in the distribution, delivery and service industries, and have fleets on the roads every day, to show how they can maximize their efficiencies and increase overall productivity."
"Minor League Baseball and its clubs are continuously looking for new ways to enhance relationships built with fans, as well as with local and national sponsors," said Michael Hand, Minor League Baseball CMO and President, MiLB Enterprises. "Fleetmatics shares a similar vision by offering solutions to businesses and helping to improve their productivity through their intuitive software. We look forward to seeing how their services can benefit our partners."
Fleetmatics will also use Excursions Trailways, a current customer and the official motorcoach company of the Fort Wayne TinCaps, to demonstrate how Fleetmatics' solutions can enhance performance. The SaaS platform will track the team's fuel usage, speed and mileage and other insights as it travels cross-country for the 2015 MiLB season.
