WILLOW is aimed at medium to large fleets, providing a back-office vehicle and lease management support tool.

The system is modular and can be purchased either as a packaged full service leasing and fleet management application or as individual modules assembled to match specific fleet/lease management needs.

Fleets are able to control the wholelife cycle of a vehicle from quote to order, through purchasing, direct and indirect in-life cost and contact management to end-of-contract used vehicle decommissioning, cost recoveries and sale.

Willow uses Oracle database management, workflow and browser technologies to provide the fleet management modules.

LEASELINK enables leasing fleets to simplify the enquiry, ordering, tracking and delivery of lease vehicles.

The software links the leasing company, fleet operator and driver. When an order is placed it enables the driver or fleet manager to track the vehicle through to delivery. Users have integrated views of Leaselink into their driver portals to provide up to date vehicle progress. Access is controlled through individual passwords and the volume of vehicles that can be stored is unlimited.

Key performance indicators can be set up alongside reporting tools to show dealer discounts, manufacturer bonus, dealer rebate and product discounts. Company performance and trends can also be analysed.
