Wesleyan optimises pool fleet management under tailored Alphabet solution
Following the firm’s recent car policy review, Alphabet was selected to provide Wesleyan with an all-manufacturer, open-choice vehicle policy (capped at 130g/km) based on whole-life cost, allowing its 500 car-eligible employees to choose from a range of vehicles over a 36 or 48-month period.
Alphabet currently supplies Wesleyan with over 400 vehicles on a full-maintenance, contract-purchase basis. The tailored package also includes accident management, as well as AlphaRent and the AlphaRent+ solution, which enables drivers to be more specific about the make and model required and also brings flexibility and extended lengths of bookings as the fleet is owned and managed by Alphabet.
Wesleyan has also seen a significantly higher usage rate for its own pool fleet vehicles under Alphabet’s full legacy and pool fleet management, enabling the firm to make further savings in rental, storage and logistics.
Tony Fagan, facilities manager at Wesleyan, said: “Since working with Alphabet, we have seen a noticeable increase in the efficiency of our pool fleet and reduction in vehicles simply sitting around not being utilised. This has meant that we can utilise our resources in other areas of the business. Alphabet’s ability to tailor the fleet to our employees’ needs has led to further savings, financially and environmentally. Cutting our carbon footprint and operating an efficient fleet is key.”
Moving forward, Wesleyan is in discussions with Alphabet to implement its risk management solution across its company car population and grey fleet drivers by the end of this year.
