Greene King, the leading pub retailer and brewer, has awarded the management of its 300 company cars and 100 cash allowance drivers to Zenith Provecta.
Zenith Provecta will provide a fully outsourced fleet management and contract hire solution. The company has worked closely with Greene King in order to integrate its systems with the brewer’s flexible benefits portal. Zenith Provecta will also provide effective pool car management to reduce ancillary hire car spend.
To improve control over Greene King’s cash allowance drivers, they will be managed through Zenith Provecta’s on-line Cash Allowance Management System (CAMS) which manages the financial and Health and Safety considerations of drivers who are not in traditional company cars.
Zenith Provecta’s CAMS system presents a picture for every driver, including what car they are driving, what condition it is in, and whether it is correctly maintained and insured for business use. Each employee manages their own profile within the web-based system, which includes key information such as vehicle details, maintenance history, regular and compulsory policy checks including self certification questions relating to insurance and MOTs. It sends email prompts to the driver requesting information updates, conducting policy compliance checks and providing maintenance, service, VED, MOT and insurance reminders, as well as reminders to check tyres, water and oil. The system also automatically checks the driver’s license directly with the DVLA.
Amanda Brakels, head of group compensation and benefits for Greene King, comments: “We conducted a routine review of our fleet management systems and sought ways to improve the service delivery and reduce costs. We found in Zenith Provecta a partner with a proven track record in comprehensive fleet funding and management services that can deliver an all encompassing fleet solution with competitive, transparent and stable pricing.”
