ARI to save customers time & money with pool fleet tool

The programme has already been taken up by a national utility company and a well-known charity, with ARI saying more significant business wins are on the way.

A major challenge with the utility company, which has a mixed fleet of 60% vans and 40% cars, is the reallocation of vehicles. The client imposes strict KPIs that must be met in order to reduce vehicle downtime and to get the right vehicle, to the right driver, in the right condition.

‘If we can get the vehicle straight to the driver and in great condition, then we have a happy driver from day one, which means they will be more likely to look after the vehicle while they have it,’ said Kelly Kalra, client account manager at the firm’s UK base in Chippenham.

‘The client also has peace-of-mind as vehicles being transferred from one driver to another are rigorously checked, including livery and overall corporate image.’

Another benefit is the reporting and fleet visibility that the CD Auction Group’s PFM home page provides. The ARI team describes it as ‘intuitive’ with only a short training session required to understand how to maximise its functionality.

Clients can see the status of their whole fleet on one screen before drilling down to the detail and running their own management reports.

The PFM programme is just the latest example of a strong working relationship between ARI and CD Auction Group.

Gary Dinsey, account manager at ARI, said: ‘CD Auction Group’s PFM programme works seamlessly with our overall fleet solution, providing a truly holistic offer.’
