Fleet Evolution launches stand-alone fleet management service
Fleet Evolution has branched into the fleet management sector with the launch of a comprehensive stand-alone service open to all fleets – not just salary sacrifice customers.
The new solution builds on the firm’s existing range of fleet management services for its salary sacrifice and car benefits, and has been developed to provide a flexible and tailored service.
Managing director Andrew Leech said: “We have seen the fleet management scene in this country move away from providing a top-quality, personalised service to one that is providing a service that is purely based on price – and that is not necessarily the best thing for the customer.
“What we are looking to be is different from the herd by providing a service that fleet customers actually want, that fully meets their every fleet need – rather than one that just puts a tick in the box,” he said.
Leech said the service was being provided after a number of the firm’s salary sacrifice customers asked for help with management of their company car fleet as well as the vehicles they provided under salary sacrifice.
“We know that, through the services we already provide to salary sacrifice customers, we have developed a track record of delivering up to a 30% reduction in fleet running costs whilst improving the service for the customer, employees, drivers and suppliers. We are now extending that approach to a wider audience,” he added.
The service is particularly targeted at small to medium sized businesses. In line with Fleet Evolution’s current work with SMEs on salary sacrifice, the firm thinks take-up for its fleet management services will come from fleets with on average from 5 to 100 vehicles.
“However, that doesn’t mean that we can’t cope with larger fleets of several hundred vehicles as we have the infrastructure in place to handle that size of fleet,” added Leech.
“The key to success isn’t the size of the fleet, however, it’s the level of personalised, flexible service that we can provide and that will always be our number one commitment,” he said.
