Neal Francis, managing director of Pendragon Vehicle Management, said that the leasing division of the Pendragon Group, which has been around for nearly 30 years, has been rebranded to reflect the wider range of management services it offers fleets.
The firm has also put a ‘multi-million pound’ investment into a new online system which offers fleet managers and drivers access to a information through PCs, tablets and smartphones.
Francis said: “We changed the name because we are not just a provider of leases. Today’s fleet require the full range of management soltuoins and a first class service, as well we the ability to mine data wherever they are. Our new operating platform allows our customers to access to a huge level of detail about their fleet and we intend to bring even more functionality to them over the next few months.”
Clients can experience a more flexible and bespoke overview of their fleet, Francis claimed, with tools to generate customised reports, vehicle quotes and orders as well as vehicle comparisons, whole life costs and driver BIKs. Supported by extranet sites individually designed for corporate customers, fleet managers and drivers can access a variety of bespoke information specifically for their fleet such as vehicle reallocation lists, insurance certificates and fleet policy and more.
“We’ve been here nearly 30 years,” Francis added. “This rebranding and online launch sets us up for the next 30.”
