Using a fleet management service
No matter how many vehicles your company uses, keeping track of them all is essential, but it can also be extremely time consuming, and expensive. Using a fleet management service can help to cut down the amount of time you spend keeping tabs on your company vehicles and allows you to focus on what really matters: business.
In House Fleet Managers
Look at the facts, the Alphabet Fleet Management Report 2012 revealed that the number of companies using in-house fleet managers in 2011 was 66%, one year later that figure had fallen sharply to 37%. Why? Many companies claimed cost-cutting. And why not? 2012 was certainly not the strongest year for businesses and the company car tax certainly hasn’t helped anything. But don’t despair, while the past few years may not have been so positive for in-house fleet managers, this decline has allowed dedicated online fleet management companies to step in and help all kinds of businesses with their fleet management solutions.
