Norse switches to Jaama for administration savings
Administration savings and in-depth performance monitoring are among the anticipated benefits identified by the Norse Group in selecting Jaama's cutting-edge online Key2 Vehicle Management system to manage its vehicles and workshops.
The Norwich-based Norse Group is a dynamic holding company, bringing together facilities management provider Norse, property consultancy NPS Property Consultants and waste processing and management operator NEWS, creating a group-combined turnover in excess of £150 million pounds and providing employment for over 5,000 people.
The company specialises in local authority partnerships, particularly in relation to facilities management on behalf of NHS Trusts, Fire and Rescue services and local authorities.
The Norse Group operates a fleet of about 1,000 vehicles including company cars, car derived vans as well as other vehicles and was looking for a new system to replace its outdated fleet management system.
A key requirement of the new software system was for it to be a multi-user facility and for it to interface with other existing Norse Group systems including that operated by the finance department.
Additionally, data from external fleet and driver information providers, such as the Group's fuel card supplier, will be able to deliver information directly into the Key2 system.
'The introduction of Jaama's Key2 system will avoid significant duplication of processes and data entry across all departments. We will have all our fleet data in one central repository which is easily accessible across departments by all system users.'
Assistant manager fleet Tina Higlett said: 'The system's ability to highlight key issues by exception and the automatic analysing of data will save vast amounts of time in terms of interpreting information and deciding what action to take.
'Also Key2 uses Microsoft's .NET windows technology which is very familiar to staff so the system will be easier for them to use in terms of navigation.'
