JCT600 VLS ramps up risk management services for customers
JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions is continuing to drive its risk management services for leasing customers with the introduction of a bespoke incident reduction programme.
The fleet management and leasing specialist already runs a comprehensive risk programme for customers, backed by an ongoing collaboration with FMG.
The two firms have just signed a new three-year contract that will see FMG continue to provide an end-to-end incident management service to JCT600 VLS’s leasing customers while also introducing a new bespoke incident reduction programme.
This focuses upon preventing incidents from happening in the first place, with the implementation of FMG’s risk management solution together with dash cam technology.
The risk solution improves driver behaviour by monitoring the way in which a vehicle is being driven and motivates drivers to adopt safer driving techniques. All journey data is aggregated and translated into a simple dashboard which allows drivers and fleet managers to monitor vehicle and driver performance. Comprehensive post-incident analysis generates risk management recommendations tailored to prevent such incidents recurring, including on-road and online driver training modules.
And further enhancements to FMG’s risk solution will launch early in 2021.
Ben Creswick, managing director at JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions, said: “By adding this incident reduction programme we can help our customers to improve driver safety whilst reducing fleet costs in the best possible way, by preventing incidents from happening in the first place.”
The latest deal between JCT600 VLS and FMG also provides fleet managers with immediate access to FMG’s 24-hour driver and vehicle support services in the event of an incident, including 24/7/365 first notification of loss, repair and downtime management, third-party intervention and mitigation, and uninsured loss recovery. And FMG’s flexible repair network provides a full range of repair options in addition to traditional bodyshop repair, including SMART, mobile and midi repair through an express repair pod solution, which reduce vehicle downtime to an absolute minimum, often removing the need for a replacement vehicle.
Creswick added: “As a leading provider of fleet services, we know first-hand the impact even slight vehicle incidents can have on our customers’ drivers, business and productivity. Everything we do is geared towards helping our customers to run their company vehicles efficiently and by continuing our partnership with FMG we can ensure that the hassle, cost and downtime following an incident will be reduced to an absolute minimum.”
