Toronto | Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, today announced that Element Fleet Management has leveraged TCS’s experience in Digital ReimaginationTM to deliver Xcelerate™, Element’s next-generation fleet management system, for its 2,800+ customers in the US, Canada and Mexico.
“We are harnessing technology to help make our customers’ fleets safer, smarter and more productive,” said Kristi Webb, president and CEO, Element Fleet Management North America. “Our strategic partnership with Tata Consultancy Services furthers Element’s commitment to providing customers with a best-in-class user experience,” Ms Webb added.
Element’s vision for the Xcelerate customer portal is to make fleet management simpler and more scalable, with on-demand access to advanced fleet analytics. The Xcelerate customer portal lets fleet operators effectively manage vehicle ordering, inventory, operational efficiency, and fleet total cost of ownership using advanced analytics.

To create a best-in-class user experience, Element brought members of its Customer Advisory Board to TCS’s digital studio in Santa Clara, California, where they collaborated with TCS user experience (UX) experts who specialise in emerging techniques in the design and development of usable human-computer interaction.
“TCS’s design-based thinking and digital expertise has helped Element develop Xcelerate into a leading platform in the fleet management industry,” said Anupam Singhal, senior vice president, TCS. “This partnership is a great example of how companies can collaborate with TCS to deliver true value to customers,” he added.
