Tusker reappointed for NHS fleet deal
The salary sacrifice and contract hire provider was initially appointed to provide lease and salary sacrifice cars to NHS Trusts three years ago under a framework agreement by the NOE CPC. During that time, Tusker has supplied almost 4,000 cars through business lease and salary sacrifice schemes to NHS Trusts all over the UK.
Julian Clarke, head of fleet services at NOE CPC Drive said: ‘We went out to tender through the Official Journal of the European Union for Procurement and received applications from some of the UK’s leading leasing and fleet management providers.
‘We decided to re-appoint Tusker for many reasons, but principally because of the quality of the customer service they provide, and the simple but comprehensive functionality of the bespoke website they have created for us.’
The CPC Drive solution uses a single platform to provide a range of fleet services to any of the 400-plus NHS Trusts nationally. Under the terms of the new framework agreement, these can now be extended to any public sector body, including police forces, fire services, local authorities and councils.
Over 31 NHS Trusts signed up with CPC Drive via the previous agreement, offering more than 100,000 employees significant benefits and enhanced customer support.
Clarke continued: ‘We wanted to continue to provide an online all-embracing and cost-effective solution which covered lease cars, grey fleet, salary sacrifice cars and an electronic expenses system to NHS Trusts and other public sector bodies.
‘We wanted a service that was delivered through a single integrated portal, was delivered online, was easy to use, was cost effective and provided high levels of customer service. Tusker continues to be the ideal partner.’
Tusker, in conjunction with Software Europe, will again provide an electronic, web-based expenses system to CPC Drive to deliver reduced administration and processing costs and improve claims accuracy.
