Zipcar has launched Business Calculator; a tool enabling companies to better understand their current transport usage patterns, assess the costs involved and identify associated administrative time.
Working with thousands of businesses in the UK, Zipcar recognised the complex range of influences on transport options that make it hard for businesses to get a complete picture of their own transport costs. Zipcar’s Business Calculator collates a report demonstrating potential time and cost savings of switching to a ‘pay-as-you-drive’ solution, taking into account a business’ size, current transport mix, time spent travelling, along with time spent on transport administration – from insurance and road tax through to processing travel receipts. Working in real-time, it will also show businesses the locations of their closest five Zipcar vehicles.
Andrew Edgar, head of Zipcar for Business comments, “Zipcar works with businesses of all sizes across a wide range of industries, from accountants attending meetings, to florists delivering flowers. With its flexible and simple service, Zipcar allows these businesses to be more agile. By freeing businesses from the burden of fixed overheads, Zipcar brings down the costs of each company’s transport needs. Zipcar provides a smarter, greener and more cost effective option when it comes to business travel, which makes sense to innovative, progressive businesses looking to make 2013 their best year yet.”
