INVESTMENT KEY FOR FLEETS AND VEHICLE SUPPLIERS TO BOOST EFFICIENCY AND BATTLE THROUGH ECONOMIC CHALLENGE
Fleets, leasing and rental organisations must not shy away from investing to boost business and vehicle operating efficiency despite budgetary constraints and the challenging economic climate.
That’s the New Year message from Jason Francis, managing director of leading fleet management software specialist Jaama, who says public and private sector organisations should take a leaf out of the Government’s book and invest in infrastructure and capital projects.
He said: “Managing directors, financial directors and fleet operators must continue to plan for the long term. Although finances maybe tight with pressure on budgets, cancelling capital expenditure will ultimately prove short-sighted.”
JAAMA’S KEY2 VEHICLE MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE PUTS THE FOCUS ON CRITICAL FLEET FUNDING AND OPERATING COSTS
Cost management is critical for fleet operators, which is why Jaama’s multi award-winning Key2 Vehicle Management software has functionality that takes account of all transactions and identifies the optimum funding strategy for organisations on an individual basis.
Most fleet managers understand the value in using whole life cost as the basis for choosing the most cost-effective vehicles for company fleets – but, critically, market research suggests that not all decision-makers use total cost of ownership as their selection criteria.
Additionally, some fleet operators do not include all of the relevant data in their calculations so the real whole life cost picture is not fully transparent.
EUROPEAN ‘O’ LICENCE CHANGES SIGNIFY IMPORTANCE OF INSTALLING ONLINE FLEET MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
Tougher European legislation on operating licensing and transport management underlines the importance of ensuring that fleets have software systems in place to manage compliance, according to leading fleet, leasing and rental software specialist Jaama.
Legislative compliance and implementation of best practice policies and procedures by UK ‘O’ Licence holders are recognised as being at the cutting-edge and the new European Union regulation is designed to tackle inconsistencies across Europe.
Jaama sales director Martin Evans said: “The UK is widely recognised as setting the benchmark for professional competence and road safety. That, in part, is due to the fact that many organisations use sophisticated online fleet management systems to keep tabs on all aspects of their fleet operation to ensure ‘O’ Licence obligations are met.”

NEW JAAMA TECHNOLOGY HELPS COMPANY CAR DRIVERS TO CALCULATE TRUE COST OF EXPENSIVE ‘FREE’ FUEL PARK
