JAAMA CELEBRATES RECORD YEAR

More than 1.2 million vehicles are now managed via Jaama’s multi award-winning Key2 asset management system.
 
The 1.2 million mark has been broken after Jaama reported that it had sold a record number of Key2 vehicle management systems to fleets, contract hire and leasing companies and rental specialists in 2017 up 84.5% on 2016.
 
What’s more, the company, which is moving into its 14th year as the provider of the UK’s most sophisticated and requested vehicle and driver management software system, is further expanding with a move into new offices scheduled in 2018.
 
Jaama, which now employs almost 100 people and saw headcount increase by 34 last year, will be moving into premises around three times the size of its current offices, which it moved into five years ago.
 
Jaama’s software development team which makes up half of its workforce has already relocated into the new offices, which are on the same Tamworth business park on which the company has been located for the past decade having previously expanded twice into larger premises.
 
Jaama’s policy of continually investing in its Key2 software to ensure that it remains in the vanguard of asset management solutions available to public and private sector fleets, contract hire and leasing companies and daily rental businesses has been critical in driving the volume of customers using the system to unprecedented levels.

 
During 2017 Key2 systems sold have been to a wide cross-section of organisations operating in numerous business sectors including local authorities, construction, facilities management and utilities, distribution, recruitment, healthcare, manufacturing, vehicle leasing and fleet management. 
 
Managing director Martin Evans said: “Many customers won in 2017 operate major fleets running, in some cases, several thousand vehicles, which means that implementation of Key2 is a major project. As a result, a number of fleets will be going live with Key2 in the first half of 2018.
 
“The UK fleet market is the most mature and forward thinking in the world and Jaama is not only the leading supplier in the sector, but is also the most recommended fleet management software solutions provider in the country. Jaama will remain fully focused on serving fleets in its core UK and Ireland markets as well as its increasing global presence, which alone saw a turnover increase of 5.5% in 2017.
 
“UK organisations collectively operating more than 1.2 million vehicles now rely on Key2 and they recognise its class-leading functionality enables them to deliver a wealth of benefits that drives fleet operating efficiency, management and control.”
 
During 2018 Key2 functionality will continue to evolve with changes being made to ensure that users remain compliant with the May 25 introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation; and developments will also be made in tandem with the continuing digitalisation of government vehicle and driver-related services. 
 
Additionally, new features will continue to be added to Jaama’s ‘My Vehicle App’, a genuine fleet industry game-changer delivering benefits to fleet managers thanks to ‘auto-triggering’ of Key2 as data/information is uploaded by drivers, as well as simplifying tasks for drivers.
