Sweeping Corp of America (SCA), the largest power sweeping company in the U.S., has been ramping up growth and streamlining operations over the last few years. SCA knew they needed a fleet management solution that could help them meet their key business goals that included streamlining driver communications and workflow management, increasing compliance with DOT requirements, and creating a customized maintenance program for its complex assets. They chose Silent Passenger’s data intelligence platform to meet their business operation’s needs.
With 36 facilities strategically located throughout the eastern and south-eastern U.S., SCA has become a reputable industry powerhouse responsible for maintaining more than 25,000 miles of roadways and thousands of parking lots for state, municipal, and private clients. The company employs over 900 associates and utilizes 964 assets in its fleet, including sweepers, sewer cleaners, dump trucks, and other support equipment that are utilized daily across the country.
“The most powerful part of the Silent Passenger solution is that it’s a highly tailored reporting solution. It can uncover costly expenses while identifying opportunities for improvement, productivity, and efficiency,” says Jake Rubin, SCA’s Director of Fleet and Procurement.
Silent Passenger helps SCA’s business operations teams reduce costs by providing the data and intelligence needed to:
- Lower fuel costs

- Increase mobile workforce productivity
- Optimize dispatching and route planning
- Monitor unauthorized use of vehicle downtime

“This technology allows us to know which driver is in each vehicle at any time and move our daily vehicle inspection process, [required by DOT] from paper to electronic which increases our ability to be DOT compliant and improves the safety of our fleet,” says Rubin.
