Pick n Mix fleet management the flavour of the day

Companies with vehicle fleets are increasingly adopting a ‘pick and mix’ approach when it comes to fleet management.

According to Shaun Redhead, fleet management specialist at Interactive Fleet Management, a rising number of businesses are tailoring their own package of services to address specific issues within their fleet operation.

“Many companies already have a fleet manager, and sometimes a fleet department, depending on the number of vehicles they own or lease.

“This means many aspects of their vehicle management are already under control yet they are talking to us because there are gaps to fill.

“These may be operational – in other words, a lack of internal resource to manage specific services. A good example being rental management, the administration of MOTs, fines, updates to the MIB (Motor insurance database), or the management of driving licence checks.

“They could be ‘skill-based’, for example needing outside expertise to handle areas such as maintenance management, accident management or developing low emission choice lists and policies.

“Or they can be financial - for example, utilising our skills to bring specific costs down that are becoming a problem to the business.”

“This results in a ‘pick and mix’ approach to fleet management whereby clients ask us to provide very precise services. As a result, we work hand in hand with them as an extension to their fleet team. It also means, if required, we can add all vehicle and driver data onto OSCAR, our web-based fleet management system, so that we have a common platform to make the entire process seamless.”

Interactive Fleet Management provides a complete range of fleet management services for cars and light commercial vehicles for some of the best-known companies in the UK as well as many businesses with smaller fleets.
