Fleet Assist is aiming to bring together its contract hire and leasing company customers with the franchise and independent garages servicing, maintaining and repairing their company cars and vans at a 'meet the fleet' open day on June 22.
The company was launched more than a decade ago and is now a leading supply chain management specialist to a significant number of the UK’s leading contract hire and leasing companies collectively operating more than 700,000 vehicles.
Fleet Assist delivers to contract hire and leasing companies a national network of more than 8,000 service outlets without the cost and challenges of setting up and managing such an operation themselves.
Management level attendance at the Cambridgeshire-based company’s open day will come from the UK’s largest vehicle leasing company, Lex Autolease, as well as a wide range of other leading providers such as: Alphabet, Days Fleet, Fleet Hire, Grosvenor Leasing, JCT600 Vehicle Leasing Solutions and Tusker.
Fleet Assist also expects more than 150 garage representatives to attend the open day where they will:
- Participate in group question and answer sessions with leasing company representatives and discuss key trends and operational issues
- Be able to have one-to-one discussions with individual leasing companies
- Meet the Fleet Assist team and receive demonstrations of the company’s systems and processes during an office guided tour.
Vincent St Claire, commercial director of Fleet Assist, said: “The fleet market is all about partnerships and companies and their suppliers working hand-in-hand with each other to deliver an even better mutually beneficial service.
"Bringing together the two sides of the Fleet Assist business - our leasing company customers and our garage network - will deliver further benefits to end-user fleets nationwide.
“Ultimately everyone is striving to deliver customer service excellence and maximise vehicle uptime.
"Vehicle leasing companies and our service agencies not only need each other, but they must work together to deliver a first class service to their mutual companies - company car and van drivers and fleet decision-makers.
“We are focusing on the “meet the fleet” element, as feedback from our garages highlights a strong desire to have increased interaction with our leasing company customers. By working in partnership, an even better service will be delivered to end-user fleets and drivers.”
