TTC Group win Lex Autolease contract to improve fleet safety

TTC Group has secured a new contract to help manage the risk of fleet customers at the UK’s biggest leasing company, Lex Autolease.

The Telford-based company has become a preferred provider to Lex Autolease, potentially supporting 130 companies to use Continuum, its online driver management solution.

The platform has the potential to support the efficient management of more than 50,000 drivers initially, ensuring compliance through licence checking, grey fleet document checks and pre-road vehicle condition checks.

A driver app utilises smartphone telematics solutions that captures all work-based journeys and gives drivers flexibility to use any number of vehicles, while connected data provides automated mileage expense claims.

Importantly, says the TTC Group, it will also help to create a driver risk profile for each staff member, with managers alerted to key changes in profile and short continuous training modules in place to improve performance.

“We are helping Lex Autolease’s clients manage their entire driving community from one online platform, providing an effective service to complete the lifecycle of compliance, administration and driver risk management,” explained Oliver Raisbeck, commercial director at TTC Group.

“Continuum has been developed to bring the benefits of technology and telematics to the front line and will help companies operating fleets to achieve improved performance, better reporting, cost savings through preventative maintenance and, most importantly, safer drivers through access to e-learning and practical training sessions.”

TTC Group, a specialist in improving road safety by empowering people through education, is expanding rapidly into fleet and driver risk management, securing a host of new contracts with Greenhous Group, Centre Parcs and Sainsburys.

The latest partnership with Lex Autolease will initially last for three years and is the largest yet, secured followed a stringent industry tender.

TTC Group’s recent acquisition of Licence Bureau, means it now oversees compliance for 70% of the UK’s top 10 vehicle leasing operations.

The company, which completed the bolt on acquisition of Licence Bureau in early March, now has a relationship with six of the UK’s largest vehicle leasing operators representing just under a million vehicles on its compliance portal.

Service provision is either via direct relationships or via a third party.

Steve Pinchen, sales director at Licence Bureau, said: “Individually, both TTC Group and Licence Bureau have always had a strong presence within compliance across the vehicle leasing sector.

“Now combined, the umbrella of that compliance service provision sees us cover 70% of the vehicles operated by the UK’s largest leasing operators. It’s evidence that our service provision is now a true end-to-end solution.”
