Capgemini has renewed its fleet management outsourcing contract with Leasedrive for another three years with the option to extend for a further two years.
Commercial director, Roddy Graham, at Leasedrive said: “We are delighted that one of the world’s leading providers of outsourcing services should continue to be delighted with the fleet management outsourcing services it receives from Leasedrive. Capgemini has been a client of ours for five years and has 1,050 current and 3,500 eligible company car drivers.
“We continue to receive excellent feedback from our annual driver surveys and have fine-tuned driver choice even further over the past 24 months. The number of manufacturers now totals 16 and comprises Audi, BMW, Citroën, Ford, Honda, Lexus, Mercedes, Mini, Renault, Seat, Skoda, Smart, Toyota, Vauxhall, Volvo and VW.
“In terms of greener vehicles, Capgemini is already running hybrid vehicles and is now evaluating electric vehicles to assess them for possible addition in the future.”
Ruth Makepeace, employee benefits manager at Capgemini, said “We are delighted to have extended our contract with Leasedrive. Their positive, pro-active and supportive approach to fleet management has enabled our relationship to go from strength to strength. In addition, during the last 18 months, we have seen a 30 per cent increase in company car scheme take up. This increase is testament to the collaborative work that has taken place between Capgemini, the driver helpdesk and our account manager.”
Capgemini is currently working with Leasedrive on achieving its sustainability targets, with resultant benefits to drivers in terms of improved fuel economy and to Capgemini in terms of a lower carbon footprint through reduced CO2 levels.
Capgemini’s car eligible employees have the opportunity to opt into the car scheme at any time during the year. By offering a salary sacrifice scheme the employee saves tax and National Insurance on the monthly lease charges making it a cost effective way of leasing a car.
