SELECT Car Leasing is powering ahead with its fleet proposition following a major partnership with fleet management service provider ODO.
The Reading broker says the partnership will provides it with the ability to offer end-to-end fleet management in addition to its current personal leasing business.
Before agreeing the partnership, Select said it undertook extensive in-house testing to understand the platform’s benefits, identifying the following key benefits:
- Driver and fleet compliance – duty of care responsibilities (including things such as driver health/driver safety), identification of fraudulent activity
- Lowering of fleet costs – prevention of end of lease surprises, plus a reduction of fuel and maintenance costs
- Time saving driver app – allows users to self-serve and manage vehicles efficiently, with proactive prompts to identify and prioritise issues, key tasks and reporting
Commenting on the partnership, Select Car Leasing general manager Graham Conway (pictured above) said:
Expanding our proposition to include full fleet management services is mission critical to our future growth and to satisfy our evolving customer needs.
“We needed a partner and a platform that we could trust to deliver on our brand promise to our customers. We’ve been impressed with the ODO platform and are excited about the potential of this partnership. It provides us and our clients with a seamless, automated end-to-end fleet management solution which will help save time and reduce fleet costs.”
Robert Gorby, ODO’s chief commercial officer, added:
“Select is a widely known and well-respected business in the market and we look forward to working with them to enhance the company’s fleet offering and to providing the five-star fleet management solution its customers have come to expect.”
