Motiva says major IT investment will take it into big league
Implemented ahead of a major project to develop Motiva’s Stoke-on-Trent headquarters this summer, the software was provided by automotive management specialists Bynx and went live last week.
Sales director Peter Wright believes the technology can help drive the company to the next level.
He said: “Our new contract management system will help us compete with the biggest firms in the country.
“It’s a major investment, but one we think will pay big long-term dividends.
“It will give us the ability to provide several services we were unable to offer before. It will lift us ahead of our immediate rivals and takes us into the big league.”
The new web-based system replaces Motiva’s current CFC CM3 platform, which has been in place since 2001 and also provides the company with a new vehicle rental and finance accounting systems.
The software enables customers to maximise the lifetime value of vehicle assets, reduce costs and manage their entire contract hire or rental fleet using one unified leasing application.
It creates an advanced online facility for customers offering lease quoting, short-term vehicle rental reservation, portal access enabling end customers to retrieve contracts and ‘in-life’ vehicle information.
The system also offers exception reporting (important for security, data accuracy and compliance) and a comprehensive portfolio of reporting capability.
Larger customers will be able to build their own reports from functional productivity dashboards contained within the system, which will also be used for the Motiva’s own reporting needs.
Wright added: “This will help us to become much more efficient, it will open new doors and can help us to evolve as a company.
“It provides a flexible, secure and robust solution that puts customers in full control of their fleet and, importantly, it’s scalable so no matter how fast we grow, the system can grow with us.
“It’s the perfect tool for a company with big plans for expansion.”
The new technology goes live as work on a £400,000 project to develop Motiva’s Stoke-on-Trent headquarters is scheduled to start in the summer.
It’s the final part of the company’s move to consolidate its operations at a single site in the city and Wright foresees exciting times ahead.
Wright said: “This technology will play an integral role in our future and means we’re fully geared up for the next stage of our development as a company.
“We’ve made great strides in the last couple of years and have no intention of taking our foot off the gas.
“We have several other big plans in the pipeline and bynxFLEET will provide us with a helping hand along the way.”
