Forbo Flooring strikes outsourcing deal with Ogilvie Fleet

Forbo Flooring UK has outsourced its company car and van fleet to expanding leasing provider Ogilvie Fleet.

Following a fleet funding review and competitive tender, Forbo Flooring UK has switched contract hire and fleet management supplier for the provision of its 75-strong company car fleet and four light commercial vehicles.

As well as supplying new vehicles, Ogilvie Fleet has taken over management of the legacy fleet of company cars and vans and is supplying a range of other solutions under a total outsourcing umbrella including: fleet and accident management, short-term hire, driver risk management including licence checking and driver support.

However, it was Ogilvie Fleet’s online solutions and its commitment to technology - as well as its focus on personal service - that was critical in securing the contract, it says.

For example, Online quotations empowers drivers to seek out their new company car reducing internal administrations for Forbo Flooring UK, while MiFleet Showroom delivers critical real-time fleet management information and a Driver Guide app gives fleet drivers access to a wide range of essential information on the move.

Rosemary Norman, Forbo Flooring UK’s purchasing category manager which includes responsibility for fleet contracts, said: “Throughout the tender process we felt a high degree of confidence among Ogilvie Fleet’s managers and back office support staff that they could be trusted to manage our vehicle fleet effectively, successfully and minimise problems.”

Ogilvie Fleet’s sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: “A combination of online solutions that reduced the fleet administration burden for Forbo Flooring UK Ltd while empowering drivers to self-help, and our long-established reputation for personal customer service were crucial in winning the contract. They are two of the major hallmarks of the business.”
