Enterprise-level companies and government entities are under constant pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency. For businesses that rely heavily on transportation as an ancillary component to their core processes, outsourcing fleet management services can provide substantial cost reductions and improved efficiency. If you are considering acquiring a fleet management program, it is important to verify the provider incorporates essential provisions to ensure a smooth transition and avoid costly service disruptions in the future.
FOUR KEY ELEMENTS IN A COMPREHENSIVE FLEET MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
When evaluating services, the company you choose should address the critical components of fleet management in a way that will reduce associated costs and eliminate the need for your direct involvement. Some of the top key elements are:
- Executive Leases: Many companies include executive vehicles as an incentive for attracting new talent. Your provider should offer a full selection of late model luxury class vehicles for top executives.
- Vehicle Acquisition: A fully featured vehicle acquisition program relies on a network of nationwide dealers and manufacturers. Consultants work with the customer to locate the best vehicle for the intended use. Online ordering capability is essential for managers, administrators and drivers. Drawing on a large pool of available vehicles eliminates the need for out-of-stock purchases.
- Maintenance Management: A strong presence in the industry helps a professional fleet management company negotiate better repair prices and accelerate factory assistance claims. Repairs are always completed in a timely manner, and the quality of the repair is unsurpassed.
- Fleet Remarketing: The provider should have developed an extensive network of experts who can tap into a variety of channels in order to find the best resale opportunities for vehicles. This includes employee purchase programs, wholesale auctions and online auctions.
