Volvo enhances business driver support programme with new online tools
Dubbed Co-Pilot, the free service is offered to all SMEs that buy or lease a Volvo. Launched last year, the tailored package of services, information and resources has been designed to help SMEs minimise the risks – and costs – of business driving.
The new online tools will provide Co-Pilot members with a constantly updated resource for news, advice, case studies and content from experts including Fleet21, TfL, Romex and Driving for Better Business.
Under the changes the programme gains a new website, hosted at www.copilotuk.com, to act as a central online hub for a constantly updated archive of accessible, informative content.
Information will also be disseminated across Co-Pilot’s social channels, found by searching Co-Pilot Business on LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube, or by following @copilotbusiness on Twitter.
Materials will address Co-Pilot’s three main areas – legal compliance, safety and risk management and business optimisation – and are intended to enhance Volvo’s expertise in safety technology.
Selwyn Cooper, head of business sales at Volvo Car UK said: “We’ve always taken the approach that we’re here to help businesses as partners and not just to provide a fleet car. Co-Pilot and its new online presence are the logical evolution of this – giving SMEs the information and support they need in a way that works for them.
“The programme will help SMEs cut the cost of employees driving for business purposes, matching driver training, licence checking and risk profile tools with Volvo’s world-leading safety technologies. The result combines safe cars with higher standards of driving and enables businesses to reduce both the frequency and associated costs of road accidents by its drivers.”
