Contract Hire and Leasing - The Continuous Evolution

on .

Contract Hire and Leasing

Contract hire and leasing companies need to constantly improve and widen their product and value added service portfolio to compete in the ever-evolving competitive industry in which they operate.

Previously, some leasing companies would spend vast amounts of time and financial resource developing in-house systems which would quickly become obsolete without continued investment.
An increasing number of contract hire and leasing companies across Britain and overseas are recognising that they need to take a different approach and obtain their software from a supplier that will support their evolving business to avoid them being left behind.

The decision of leasing companies to use the Key2 software platform underlines Jaama’s status as the number one provider of the most technologically advanced business solution for vehicle and asset leasing businesses. Key2 is both technologically advanced and very configurable which enables our customers to operate on a standard system which can be kept up to date with regular service packs.

Davies Crane Hire utilise Key2
Davies Crane Hire Ltd is expecting to scale new heights of business efficiency with the implementation of Jaama’s industry-leading management software system.
Key2 Hire Management, which will go live across all Davies Crane Hire depots early in 2018, will be used to manage:

•The hiring of mobile, all-terrain and crawler cranes, ranging from eight-ton to 400-ton capacity as well as scheduled and unscheduled maintenance requirements and regulated inspections.
•The company’s transport fleet including pick-up vehicles, lorry loaders, flat-bed and low loaders.
•All financials ranging from credit checks at the point of hire to generating invoices and creating contracts to detailing the unique crane number, start and end date of hire, hire rates, customer details and location of hire.
•Vehicle drivers and crane operators’ licences to ensure maximum compliance.
The one-stop shop, web-enabled Key2 solution replaces two separate IT systems - one used to manage crane hire and related financial reporting and a separate system to manage vehicle drivers and crane operators.

Jaamas new My Vehicle App, fleet management app

Fleet management app

Today’s fleet decision-makers are seeking smart “self-service” solutions focusing on intelligent process driven functionality that reduces the requirement for regular manual intervention from the fleet team.

Just launched is Jaama’s ‘My Vehicle App’, which is a genuine fleet industry game-changer delivering significant benefits to both drivers and fleet managers.

Unlike other apps, ‘My Vehicle App’ provide drivers with more than just ‘flat’ information.
The ‘My Vehicle App’ interactive functionality enables drivers to:
• Update odometer readings
• Undertake daily vehicle checks prior to any journey and flag any defects requiring rectification
• Record essential accident details along with related photographs at the scene

Crucially, information uploaded by drivers via the app automatically populates the associated records held within Key2. The incoming information then automatically triggers in-house rule sets and notifications such as defect rectification action required, accident alerts and service realignments if the vehicles mileage profile has changed.

‘My Vehicle App’ was designed following extensive customer, technological and usability research.

Jaama managing director Martin Evans said: “Auto triggering of processes streamlines operations, saves time, increases efficiency and reduces costs because fleet managers will receive real-time data. ‘My Vehicle App’ also improves audit trail accuracy to help meet duty of care regulations.”
