THE broker fleet management tool, ODO, has been enhanced with a new EV transitioning tool.

The developer of ODO, DRIVE Software Solutions, has partnered with Masternaut, a Michelin owned fleet management service, to develop the functionality. 

DRIVE says it will enable brokers to successfully move businesses from traditional fuel strategies to electrified fleets.

Called EV Transition Planning, the software uses real fleet trip data to identify which vehicles are capable of transitioning to EV, and when to do so. The fleet management program will also offer a selection of appropriate EV models, depending on operational suitability for the business.

We’re extremely excited about this partnership with ODO. It will enable leasing brokers and their customers to accelerate their transition to greener fleets. The only way to transition effectively to electric is by using real fleet data and insights. This solution takes the guesswork out of transition planning for businesses. It provides them with the confidence that they are making the right decisions at the right time for the right vehicle.

Leasing brokers Rivervale Leasing and Synergy Car Leasing are users of ODO and both have recently transitioned fleets successfully; Rivervale helped ABP UK, while Synergy moved Xledger across to a greener propostion.

Robert Gorby, chief commercial officer for DRIVE Software Solutions, added: 

Businesses have been telling us that they need to prevent range anxiety amongst their drivers, get a better understanding of real EV performance and be able to see everything in one place. This partnership and proposition delivers on all counts and we are looking forward to enabling the industry to accelerate the transition to greener fleets.
