ACFO launches journey planning guide
That's the message of a new guide published by ACFO to help fleets look at how effective – and sustainable – their existing mobility options are.
The guide – 'From A to B: The ACFO Guide to Journey Planning' – is the second in a series of ACFO publications intended to help fleets, and was officially launched today (Tuesday 17 May) at the organisation's annual conference and AGM.
The 28-page guide suggests that using a "business mobility manager" could help firms implement positive changes that also lead to improved corporate efficiency.
Chairman Julie Jenner said: 'Almost certainly organisations will already be using many of the business mobility options outlined in this guide to a greater or lesser extent. However, it is almost certain that the options have been introduced in a fragmented way. That is not to say that business mobility is disorganised – simply that old habits die hard and neither employers nor employees may be too certain as to how the decision-making responsibilities should work in the new age of business mobility.
'It can be argued that there is no right or wrong. ACFO has compiled the guide to serve as a reminder of the key issues that need to be focused upon when implementing a true business mobility strategy that will cut costs and improve business efficiency and effectiveness.'
She added: 'The opportunities for employers to implement a diverse, multi-faceted, sustainable mobility and display corporate social responsibility have never been greater.'
The guide has been published 12 months after the launch of the "ACFO Best Practice Guide to Employee Driving Document Checking". It is currently available to ACFO members to download via the ACFO website and will eventually be made available to non-members too.
