Following on from the launch of their Policy Manager product earlier this year, FleetCheck have announced that they are to provide a new consultancy service to its more than 600 customers.

Fleet management comes with some unique challenges, from remarketing to getting the right company fleet insurance policy so the new service by FleetCheck will doubtless be welcomed by many of the fleet managers the company works with.

Speaking about the new service, managing director at FleetCheck, Peter Golding had the following to say –

“The fact is that the level of expertise held by the fleets with which we work varies very widely. Some already have a great deal of knowledge and just want to use our software to implement their existing policies.

“Others need help simply creating policies and Policy Manager is a highly effective tool for them. But there are a third group of businesses who want a more direct and interventionist approach, and the new consultancy service is designed for them.

“In the future, our experts will operate alongside these companies, working on everything from help with isolated issues through to building an entire fleet infrastructure.

“We foresee two major areas in which we will deliver benefits. One is in the creation of effective policies designed to cover all key aspects of a vehicle’s life, from setting replacement cycles and acquisition through to maintenance, safety and, finally, disposal.

“The other is to help fleets to draw maximum value from telematics technology, making sure they are getting the information they need to make effective decisions.”

Giving a specific example of how FleetCheck’s consultancy service can help fleet managers, he said –

“A good example is the annual investment allowance made available by the government. This can be used to apply to commercial vehicle acquisition if used correctly but few businesses take advantage of this opportunity. We can show them how to do so.”
