The New Wave

Your business will have to ride the wave of change coming in powertrain and mobility technology, and Chevin’s cutting edge FleetWave software solution will help you do it.

The new decade will bring changes to fleets, the like of which have never been seen. Moving to electric powertrains and associated networks, a shift in usership and the ability to manage your fleet in real time has the potential to be transformative, but also hugely disruptive if not implemented properly.

So how does a fleet ensure that the revolution is a smooth, ordered one, and not chaotic and costly?

“New technology needs proven technology such as FleetWave to ensure that when decisions are made, they are not plucked from thin air. Sifting, pinpointing and then analysing data means business can plan strategically and with real insight,” says Ashley Sowerby, managing director of Chevin Fleet Solutions.


In order to make the change to electric and other mobility solutions, a business must understand its current operational requirements and how EVs can be applied, or not, to those needs.

FleetWave offers complete analysis of every vehicle, allowing precise, targeted application of new technologies, identifying where they will work, or not. Analysing capability, wholelife costs, mileage profiles and utilisation for each vehicle, FleetWave’s fleet performance management systems and granular reporting will create compelling cases and accurate data to back up your planning and decision-making.


Managing driving and drivers is not getting easier. Increasing regulatory compliance, busier roads, more delays and fines, and increased administration as new initiatives such as clean air zones are rolled out, are all contributory factors.

Then there are alternative methods of travel, such as rental, public transport or even virtual journeys. How do you quantify what is the most efficient choice for your busines?

Fleets need to keep on top of this heavier burden and react to new developments. FleetWave helps manage this, offering customisable solutions which give you the ability to track and trace the myriad of disparate inbound and outbound costs and compliance procedures, providing simple, clear access to all data and records.

It allows you to see what’s happening to your vehicles and drivers, and the ability to tailor requirements to ever-changing conditions and new schemes impacting on operations.


The next few years will see technology radically alter the way vehicles are looked after. Connectivity means cars, vans and trucks will send huge amounts of data about their status, which means you will be able to schedule maintenance and predict when issues might occur – transforming the utilisation level of your fleet.

In order to enact this, you need a management platform to handle the flow of data, make sense of it and keep it secure. FleetWave is proven to do this already, with reporting, audit and scheduling software that can manage the increased demand.
