About Us

Developed by RTA, Xerifleet is powered by the fleet management software company’s 40-years of experience.

RTA’s founder, Ron Turley, knew a thing or two about managing a fleet. He started as a UPS® driver in 1961 and worked his way up to managing their entire fleet in just a few years. Like you, it didn’t take long for him to realize that putting out the daily fires could consume all his time. So, he pioneered an approach that got him out of the weeds of the day-to-day and into proactive solutions, keeping more of his vehicles safely on the road, more of the time.

After saving UPS more than $100 million during his time there (today, this would be more like $300 million, with inflation), Ron took all that he learned and created a fleet management software that actually meets managers’ real needs. Forty years later, Ron’s business is still in the family, and our goal is the same: We help fleet managers run their fleets with more efficiency and less hassle at a cost their companies can’t afford to pass up. We help fleets succeed.

  • Time-saving solutions: Ditch the paper forms and chaos and see how our easy-to-use eDVIR app will save your drivers and technicians time.
  • Budget-friendly pricing: At $6/month per vehicle, stop wasting money on paper and get a complete solution.

Our founder’s story

RTA began serving fleet managers in 1979, but the company’s true beginning occurred years earlier when Ron Turley was a young father and Korean War veteran. Ron started at the bottom rung, as a driver for UPS® in 1961. Within five years, he worked his way up to become the Automotive and Building Maintenance Manager in the brand new Georgia District. While there, he ran the best-performing district throughout the entire company. They had the fewest road calls and lowest cost of all UPS’ fleet management districts in the U.S.

Fast forward to 1973. After several promotions and reassignments, Ron was given responsibility for the maintenance of all UPS vehicles in the U.S., Canada and Germany – more than 48,000 in all. In the next five years, Ron would help UPS save $100 million in shop operating costs, allowing UPS mechanics to take care of nearly 80 percent more vehicles per man-hour than they had been doing up to that point. He instituted time standards and innovative cost-saving measures throughout the company’s maintenance operations until 1978.

At this point, RTA’s story begins, quite by accident. Ron left UPS and moved his family back to Phoenix. He received numerous requests from fleet managers needing help to improve their operations. As Ron’s popularity grew, he began to regularly deliver seminars around the country, in addition to his consulting jobs. Ron published his first book to offer at these seminars. Managing Fleet Maintenance was published in 1979, and three other books followed: Time Management, Preventive Maintenance Inspections and Operations and Safety. Through his books, Ron established and demonstrated how key reports help maintenance managers control costs. These reports formed the backbone of what RTA would become.
