Ogilvie Fleet has launched a brand new online fleet manager portal that securely delivers live fleet operational data in real-time to the desktops of fleet chiefs.
Called MiFleet Showroom, the online facility has been launched to customers six months after Ogilvie Fleet unveiled its new fleet decision-maker and driver website designed to give users a complete overview of operating and tax costs alongside a raft of new informative features.
The unveiling of MiFleet Showroom follows real world testing with 50 clients and represents the culmination of over 12 months development work and a six-figure investment in online technology by Ogilvie Fleet.
The password protected, MiFleet Showroom section of the website - www.ogilvie-fleet.co.uk - is a full-data system that enables fleet decision-makers to manage their vehicles across a number of key areas including: vehicle orders, invoicing, vehicle service and MoT dates, fleet vehicle renewal dates and employee driver licence checks.
A traffic light red, amber and green live summary for each category instantly flags up to fleet decision-makers key issues that need attention. For example, an overdue vehicle service, forthcoming MoT or a driver close to losing their licence. Thus, once logged in, a fleet manager can immediately see any matters of attention by simply looking for the red or amber traffic lights.
Ogilvie Fleet sales and marketing director Nick Hardy said: “From the moment a vehicle joins the fleet to the day it is de-fleeted, every necessary action or touchpoint can be studied and investigated.
“We have made the process as simple and straight-forward as we possibly can by using traffic lights to flag up individual vehicle and driver issues. Fleet decision-makers need to be focused on the exceptionals to ensure fleet costs are kept under tight control and corporate health and safety best practice is being followed.
“The traffic light system identifies fleet ‘exceptions’ at a glance and means that managers can take immediate action by, for example texting or emailing drivers to have their vehicle serviced or MoT’d.”
He added: “Fleet management can be hugely time consuming, particularly if fleet managers are continuing to use excel spreadsheets. All data relating to every vehicle and driver is available at the click of a mouse without the need to drill down into many report layers.
“Fleet managers have the option of running standard reports from MiFleet Showroom or bespoking them to meet their own requirements. MiFleet Showroom functionality is designed to make the life of the fleet decision-maker easier so that administration is not a burden.
“I absolutely believe that our innovation with MiFleet Showroom puts clear blue sky between Ogilvie Fleet and our competition and that it will become yet another reason why fleets switch over to us. Our growth in the past two years has been astounding and comes from not only the great people that make the Ogilvie team, but also the vision and investment we have in our systems and online facilities.”
The technology has been developed in partnership with leading fleet management software house Jaama and digital design company IDAC Media.
