Mycompanyfleet says grey fleet still near top of fleet concerns

Company fleet managers still have huge concerns about their grey fleet drivers and the risks they expose their companies to through having inadequate insurance, poorly serviced vehicles and too infrequent licence checks.

That’s the view from Mycompanyfleet, the automotive arm of HR software supplier NorthgateArinso, which says that the management of the grey fleet is still near the top of the list of major concerns for fleet managers, following feedback from fleet customers and prospects.

It cites the example of one major organisation with several thousand grey fleet drivers which it was managing through a complicated spreadsheet to ensure that they were properly insured, servicing their vehicles regularly and completing regular licence checks.

This required a huge amount of internal fleet administration in chasing up drivers to check they had followed company guidelines regarding their vehicles and that documentation was up to date.

That organisation has now switched to Mycompanyfleet’s grey fleet software solution, Driver Self-Serve, to manage its entire grey fleet and reduce the amount of administrative burden faced by its internal fleet management staff.

“In this case, our grey fleet solution has dramatically reduced the amount of internal fleet management time needed to validate that drivers have completed the documentation, updated their records and have the necessary authorisations,” said Mycompanyfleet business executive Luke Hicks.
