Advertorial feature from Zenith: A bright spectrum of ideas to reduce costs, improve fleet performance and service levels

 

Vehicle leasing, company cars, commercial vehicles, fleet management and all employee benefits such as Salary Sacrifice - it’s about finding the right mix.

And we are good at it.

That’s one of the reasons why we are the Fleet News Leasing Company of the Year 2012 and 2013.

Zenith is a multi-award winning independent leasing, fleet management and vehicle outsourcing business.

Our customer base includes many household brands and some of the biggest organisations in the UK. We have a strong focus on high quality service delivery and continuous innovation.

Fleet News Awards judges’ comments 2013: “Last year’s winner takes the honours again thanks to showing continuous improvement. Customer service is key, but this is an all-round performer investing in technology that puts fleets in full control of their vehicles and their drivers. Zenith’s innovative solutions meet fleets’ needs.

High quality and cost effective? How do we do it...?

A bright spectrum of ideas and the right mix of intelligent solutions, innovative products and great people...

The process starts with optimising your vehicle funding and acquisition methods. Our fleet consultancy teams work hard to provide detailed and bespoke whole life cost analysis of your fleet. This will enable us to ascertain the best funding method, or often a mix of funding methods, across your whole fleet portfolio on a vehicle by vehicle basis. We will carry out detailed and impartial whole life cost analysis and then find the best solution on a vehicle by vehicle basis. More than 63% of our customers adopt a mixed funding approach which is well above industry averages. By finding exactly the right approach, we can significantly reduce your costs.

Then we continue to manage down expenditure throughout the vehicles’ life. There are thousands of transactions which take place through the cycle of a fleet and by closely controlling each step we provide cost effective and fully outsourced fleet management. Central to this is that we manage all of our core services in-house, which is unusual in our industry. This includes maintenance, accident management, vehicle hire, vehicle administration and disposals.

Examples of how we save costs include through closely managing maintenance spend, with our in-house experts checking and validating every area. We have saved an average of 23% per original invoice for maintenance spend in the last year.

Every single component of your fleet spend is monitored and reported on through our multi-award winning Pulse platform (winner of the Fleet News Award for Best Product and Service 2013, the Fleet World Honours ‘Internet Award’ 2012 and the BusinessCar Techies Award 2012 for ‘Best Fleet Management System’). This provides instant and real time analysis of all areas of your fleet. Any areas for cost reduction, such as through adapting fuel or hire policy, reducing downtime, risk, accidents or fines can be quickly identified and implemented.

Fleet News Awards Judges’ Comments 2013: “Pulse tells you everything you might ever want or need to know about running your fleet. Its very real and significant benefits include an opportunity to improve efficiency, save money and run a more professional fleet operation. No fleet can afford to live without these management information reports.

 

Building relationships

To deliver that extra special service it is all about relationships;
