New epyx module to take hassle out of driver fine recharges

By / 6 months ago / Latest News / No Comments

A new Fines Module that can recharge driver fines on short-term rental back to the fleet customer has been added to the epyx 1link Hire Network platform.

Debbie Fox, commercial director at epyx

It’s designed to help cut the pain for both rental firms and end-user fleets with the perennial industry issue of passing back driver fines.

Daily rental companies can create a new fine within 1link Hire Network, including relevant details and associated documents, and submit it directly to the fleet customer or any appropriate intermediary. It can then be approved manually or set up for automatic approval if it meets a series of pre-agreed rules.

An event history provides a clear audit trail for the entire process and fines invoices can also be extracted into sales and purchase exports for use in accounting systems.

Debbie Fox, commercial director at epyx, said: “Driver fines are perhaps the most contentious area of all for daily rental companies and their customers, taking up a disproportionate amount of time and effort.

“The Fines Module is designed to remove much of this pain for everyone involved in the process, creating an infrastructure through which fines can be handled quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

“This is something that has been created very much in response to demand from 1link Hire Network customers and will, we are sure, be widely adopted very quickly.”

Further updates to the module will include dedicated fines reports for hire suppliers and their customers, enhanced validation rules and automated email options.
