Prestige Fleet Servicing to expand network
Prestige Fleet Servicing is to expand its network of independent fleet service centres by a third in the first quarter of next year.
The East Midlands-based operation currently has a network of 315 independent outlets and is now looking to recruit a further 100 fleet service centres to complete its national coverage and meet increased customer demand, following organic growth and a number of new client wins in recent months.
Commercial director Joe Bhamra added that the Prestige network can bring significant benefits for fleet operators.
“We do not charge management fees, unlike some of our competitors, and can provide savings of up to 40% on all SMR work compared to franchised dealers. Meanwhile, our in-house validation team controls each element of any SMR transaction on behalf of a customer.
“Our fleet customers also have access to Unity, our state-of-the-art web-based fleet management tool, through which they can book and monitor the progress of all SMR work online, as well as downloading consolidated invoicing and management information reporting.
“Unity also provides a downtime management module which ensures that vehicle downtime is kept to a minimum, an especially vital benefit for LCV fleet operators and their drivers. Unity also provides embedded tyre tread depth and vehicle damage reporting for fleets to flag up any areas that require additional attention,” he said.
