Ogilvie Fleet clients to gain from cutting-edge online quote system
Developed by Jaama, the vehicle quotation and ordering system uses real-time vehicle information sourced via Jaama’s online link with CAP. This allows fleet managers and company car and van drivers to "slice and dice" data to compile their optimum vehicle solutions within pre-set grades and company specified requirements.
Using Jaama’s Microsoft .NET2 technology platform, the system allows Ogilvie Fleet, which manages a UK-wide fleet of almost 10,000 cars and light commercial vehicles for the sub-250 sector, to replicate individual customers’ fleet policies online.
As a result, drivers can only obtain quotes within the parameters of their respective grades and taking account of specific information, for example, in relation to vehicle manufacturers, models, equipment levels, emission standards, engine size, list price, P11d values, fuel type, fuel consumption, accessories and loading weight. The system also enables drivers to upgrade and downgrade their model choice and takes into account any cash contributions they make.
Following two years of development process, Ogilvie Fleet has piloted the quotation system with one of its clients and is now rolling it out to its entire sole supply customer base.
Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: 'In partnership with Jaama, we are taking online functionality to the fleet masses. Launch of the vehicle quotation system is step one on a journey that will ultimately see Ogilvie Fleet offer the "gold standard" to all our customers.
'We are now looking to go live with other online functionality including comprehensive live vehicle reporting for fleet managers, online driver licence checking and a web information portal for drivers. Ultimately fleet decision-makers and drivers will be able to manage their entire vehicle and fleet-related requirements online, view their individual history and track vehicle orders.'
