Technology driving shift to fleet mobility
Fleets are increasingly turning to software to manage overall employee mobility as well as company vehicles in line with a growing industry shift to holistic mobility services, according to Chevin.
Managing director Ashley Sowerby highlighted how new technology provides companies with greater visibility of existing transportation costs associated with fleet, and can help managers to identify areas where more flexible and economical solutions might be possible, encouraging them to experiment with more flexible alternatives.
As such, Chevin said it’s seen increasing demand through new and existing customers for mobility features within its software, with existing services such as pool car planners, rental booking functions, journey planning and business trip expense submission tools all seeing a big increase in interest over the past 12 months.
“In response to this new industry trend, we are working to enhance knowledge of the features that are available within FleetWave, such as electronic key box systems for pool car systems and apps to capture information from mobile workers,” added Sowerby.
In early 2018, Chevin will be unveiling a new mobile application that will work specifically to manage field workforce, as a bolt on to its existing FleetWave product.
