A new portal has been introduced to bring together the online fleet tools and driver resources offered by GE Capital’s Fleet Services division.
For fleet managers, iManage allows key aspects of policy to be managed online including fleet inventory, quoting, analysis and reporting. An important feature is an advanced seamless and paperless vehicle ordering and management process.
More than 40 standard fleet reports are available through the platform with many designed to highlight exceptions to normal fleet usage. Data is accessible dating back three years to easily monitor trends and allow easy benchmarking, with web dashboards providing comprehensive trend analysis.
New features include an in-built communications tool available for fleet managers to easily send reminders and news articles to their drivers directly from iManage either immediately or on a scheduled basis.
For drivers, iManage delivers access to an extensive range of new resources including fleet policies and processes, vehicle contract information, taxation details, mileage and other personal information, and contact details for suppliers covering accidents, breakdowns, tyres and glass replacement. These sit alongside established tools for online service booking, MoT and repair booking, , quotation and ordering, , and fuel tax calculation.
Both fleet managers and drivers can choose to receive regular updates from GE’s Focus newsletter via the site and can access more than 30 GE Capital guides and factsheets covering key fleet topics. Additionally, the platform has enhanced Europe-wide, multi-lingual, multi-currency capability, and views and functions are customisable for different levels of staff within an organisation.
Gary Killeen, Fleet Services commercial leader for GE Capital UK, said: “During the last decade, we have introduced a wide array of online management, reporting and information tools for fleets and they have become widely used and accessed by our customer base.
“With the introduction of the new iManage portal, we have very much brought these services right up to date, enabling everything to be delivered through a single point. The change makes our online offering easier to use and much more productive for fleet managers and their drivers.”
