Networkfleet, a leader in wireless fleet management, announced that it has signed a value added reseller (VAR) agreement with Cincinnati-based Mike Albert Vehicle Fleet Management, one of the top fleet leasing and management companies in the country. Under the VAR agreement, Mike Albert will offer the Networkfleet wireless fleet management system to small and mid-size fleets nationwide.

For more than 50 years, Mike Albert has offered innovative and flexible fleet programs for fleet customers. The company's experienced fleet consultants combine personalized customer service with vehicle knowledge to provide economical and efficient fleet programs. Mike Albert chose to represent Networkfleet after thoroughly evaluating 10 competing solutions in the areas of strength and stability of the supplier, ease of product installation, application integration and overall value.

"An important factor in our selection of Networkfleet was the ability to capture data and easily integrate it into applications and generate additional reports for our customers. We also were impressed with Networkfleet's Web-based software and its remote smog check capabilities," said Sheri Hardesty, VP of sales administration for Mike Albert. "By adding Networkfleet to our offerings, we will expand our ability to provide comprehensive, customized fleet management services that allow businesses to optimize their fleet budgets and resources."

Mike Albert Vehicle Fleet Management joins a list of prominent Networkfleet VARs that includes Wright Express, PHH Arval, Automotive Resources International (ARI), Emkay and Arsenault Associates. In addition, Networkfleet has partnerships with third-party software developers to integrate its technology with applications that add value for customers, such as field service optimization and maintenance management solutions.

"To be a Networkfleet VAR, a company must be an industry leader who demonstrates the resources and proficiency to resell the Networkfleet product line as part of a total customer solution," said Keith Schneider, president of Networkfleet. "We are excited to add Mike Albert Leasing to the list of respected and customer-focused companies representing Networkfleet products and services."
