New Chevin module solves pool key allocation problem
Already trialled by a customer in the US, the module is now being made available to all Chevin users, enabling drivers to book a car or van through an online portal.
Once the booking has been approved by a line manager, a six-figure code is automatically texted to the driver that will allow them to open a compartmentalised locker that stores the keys for their allocated vehicle. The system also allows keys to be returned.
The module is the latest to be designed for Chevin’s FleetWave fleet management system, which includes more than 50 different modules.
Managing director Ashley Sowerby said: ‘There remain a significant number of fleets that retain pool vehicles and the issue of key allocation is a difficult one, especially if a car or van is needed by an employee outside of normal office hours. The module offers a practical, cost-effective solution.’
