FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (September 5, 2018) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and lifecycle cost management announced today its COO and CTO, James Griffin, has been selected as a finalist for the South Florida Business Journal’s 2018 Technology Awards, honoring chief information officers who lead their organizations in delivering business value and innovative use of IT. He is one of three finalists in the category of private companies over $50 million in revenue.
Griffin joined Fleet Advantage as CTO in 2014 and was also appointed COO in 2016. He has built a successful career providing technology leadership development and strategic planning for large-scale technology and informational architectures. Over the last two years Griffin’s efforts have resulted in industry-leading platforms that have enhanced customer value, data security and overall company performance.
Under Griffin’s leadership, Fleet Advantage introduced an award-winning software called ATLAAS, a one-stop resource transportation executives leverage to manage their entire fleet of trucks. ATLAAS is engineered with advanced algorithms that identify each truck’s optimum economic lifecycle – the TIPPINGPOINT®, which is the point at which it costs more to operate an existing asset compared with replacing it with newer, more efficient equipment and determine an optimum replacement point. As a result, Fleet Advantage is able to provide cutting-edge technology tools to its clients allow them to improve productivity, be more environmentally responsible, and save millions in operating costs.
“Our entire transportation industry today is operated by technology, data and business intelligence,” said Brian Holland, President and CFO at Fleet Advantage. “More importantly, it is critical for transportation providers to properly analyze and interpret this data so they can make the right decisions that provide a competitive advantage.

We congratulate Jim and our entire technology team on their recognition and achievement.”
