Epyx has added a new function to its 1link Hire Network e-commerce platform to enable fleets to manage down the number of damage, fuel and penalty charges incurred from short-term hire.
Hire providers that supply vehicles to fleets through the daily rental e-commerce platform will be able to use the new driver profile alerts functionality to highlight previous invoices that contained charges.
This alert recognises the driver and provides advice to the fleet making the booking at the time of placing a new request.
If more than a predefined number of previous hire invoices relating to a particular employee contained these charges, then a pop-up warning will appear when a new booking for that driver appears, allowing the fleet manager to actively tackle the problem.
David Wallace, sales and business development director at epyx, said: “This is the kind of issue that could easily slip under the radar but driver profile alerts allow hire providers to identify drivers who may not be aware of avoidable charges or clearly have an issue with treating hire vehicles appropriately.”
