Paperless Workshop for police

A NEW workshop management software system has been bought by one of Car Fleet Control's longest standing customers - furthering its already extensive use of the company's products. Central Scotland Police first bought Car Fleet Controls fleet management software in 1988, choosing System One, the company's first PC-based package. Over the years this has been upgraded to EuroFleet, the current market-leading system.

Now the 145-vehicle fleet plans to abandon its current paper workshop system and switch to Workshop Manager, Car Fleet Control's dedicated workshop management system. PC-based and designed to run in Windows 3.1 or 95, Workshop Manager offers full workshop management facilities including report writing and work tracking options.

Fleet manager Bill McCrae said: 'We were quite an early user of fleet management software because of my own interest in computers and have found that Car Fleet Control software has done a good job of providing pretty much everything that a police fleet requires. We were looking for the same gains from Workshop Manager as Eurofleet provides - to cut down on time-consuming administration in our centralised workshop and provide reports which will give accurate pictures of what is happening on the fleet.'
