Jaama celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2014 and is recognised as the most recommended provider of fleet and asset management software in the UK.
The best fleet software - for the sixth successive year in 2014 Jaama achieved Fleet News Reader Recommended status - can only be judged on innovation, technology platform, investment, ease of use and ultimately success and customer recommendation.
In each area Jaama wins with a programme of innovative fleet management and compliance solutions along with a record of continuous investment in technology that to date averages around £1 million per year across the company’s history.
Key2 technology is at the core of Jaama’s online software solutions for fleet operators and rental and leasing companies and critically this technology has the capability to interface with existing software systems used by finance, HR and procurement departments as well as systems operated by third parties including the DVLA and HM Revenue and Customs.
Continuing demand for cutting-edge fleet management software solutions has fuelled further expansion with an anticipated 10% minimum increase in employees during 2014.
Indeed, last year Jaama expanded its customer portfolio by 18% further boosted by the decision of small and medium-sized contract hire and leasing companies to utilise Key2 technology to deliver comprehensive cradle to grave management service improvements to customers.
It is this confidence that is one of the key reasons why the organisation has achieved Fleet News Reader Recommended status for the sixth consecutive year.
Continual advancements in functionality of the core web-based Key2 software system ensures excellent customer retention; however the company is not resting on its laurels and continues to invest to ensure delivery of cutting-edge asset and driver management solutions to businesses.
Managing director Martin Evans said: “Our continued hard work and commitment to supply class-leading products and services has resulted in a fantastic first decade providing fleet and asset management solutions to a wide range of organisations, including many blue chip companies.
“Growth has been fuelled by a combination of the capability of our software, a dynamic approach and the service we provide to customers.”
Looking forward Mr Evans said: “Jaama’s long-term commitment to the industry and our appetite for further expansion remains strong.
“Now more than ever, fleets need cutting-edge software systems to drive improvements and efficiencies across their operations as well as ensuring legislative compliance.
“Fleet operators must address how they collate, measure and manage information and the answer is to use leading edge technology. This enables management reports to be compiled and critical data to be presented to executive boards in a format that is straight-forward and easily understood.”
“Our single platform approach means that Key2 users operate at the forefront of fleet management best practice. It also ensures fantastic customer retention as our policy of continuous software evolvement means our technology never becomes outdated.”
Major Jaama customers include: Amey, British Transport Police, BCA, Days Contract Hire, DHL Express, DHL International, Fleet Hire, Hertfordshire County Council, Interserve, JCT 600 Contracts, Luton Borough Council, Manheim, MITIE, Ogilvie Fleet, Prohire, Sheffield Insulation Group, and Serco.
Pertemps, the largest privately owned recruitment company in the UK, was one of the first organisations to implement Jaama’s Key2 Vehicle Management system.
Ten years later and Key2 remains at the heart of Pertemps’ fleet operation providing fully integrated cradle to grave vehicle management, compliance - including employee and agency driver licence validation checking - and recharging functionality across the business.
Pertemps’ group fleet manager Adrian Harris said: “We were seeking a fleet software system with greater functionality and had faith in the Jaama management team to deliver.
“Key2 provides Pertemps with a wide range of fully integrated modules to meet our asset and driver management requirements. The system enables Pertemps to optimise fleet performance, maximise efficiencies, control costs and reduce risk. It is a proven paperless system.”
Mr Harris added: “The service support and back-up we receive is second to none, which is why we have continued our business partnership with Jaama for a decade. Jaama has the technology know-how within its workforce to continually update the system to ensure we maintain management best practice.”
