Public sector fleets look for software to maximise asset utilisation

Ashley Sowerby, Chevin

Chevin Fleet solutions has made several recent deals with public sector fleets looking for fleet management software.

Ashley Sowerby (pictured), Chevin managing director, said: “The most common question we are asked by public sector fleets is ‘we are being asked to achieve more with less resources – how can you help us?’

“Providing answers to this question has led us to sign a significant number of recent deals and this trend shows no signs of slowing, especially as there is no indication of a relaxation over public spending cuts.”

With fleet representing a major expense for public sector bodies, Sowerby said: "key areas where fleet software has helped public sector organisations drive improvements include cost control, compliance, vehicle availability and workshop management.

“Many public sector organisations such as councils and emergency services have in-house workshops, and it’s important for them to ensure maximum vehicle and plant uptime, as well as making scheduling as efficient as possible.

“Fleet management software can help these organisations measure and understand how their assets are being used, and streamline the processes surrounding them.

“It’s all about making sure that vehicles and plant, which are often highly specialised in the public sector, are available where and when needed.”
