Hitachi Capital Vehicle Solutions (HCVS) is to offer its customers TMC’s mileage capture and audit services.
The two companies say this partnership will also help fleets to better understand journey data and identify which vehicles can be replaced with electric cars or vans.
Andy Fuller, head of corporate sales at HCVS, which was named as leasing company of the year - 20,000+ vehicles at this year's Fleet News Awards, said: “We’re pleased to offer greater value to our customers thanks to this partnership.
“We are committed to providing data-led solutions to help customers optimise their fleets.
“The partnership supports our unique offering to make electrification a reality for our customers; as journey data is key not only for expenses and time administration and management, but also understanding viability for electrification.
“This partnership is designed to deliver further cost savings, insight and added value to Hitachi’s customer base, areas that both HCVS and TMC are heavily focused on.”
TMC’s Mileage Track app can automatically capture business trips b linking to the vehicle’s Bluetooth technology, meaning every business trip is recorded.
This reduces admin for the drivers as well as enabling HCVS to identify where electric vehicles could be successfully deployed based on the journeys the vehicle makes.
TMC will also offer HCVS customers its iQ product range, which is designed to help deliver benefits to employees in the most cost-effective way whether that be fuel cards, company cars or cash allowances.
Paul Hollick, managing director of TMC, added: “We are delighted to have been selected as Hitachi’s chosen partner, and share the same mission to reduce fleet costs and emissions and improve driver safety and experience.
“From the recording of business mileage, payroll services for employee reimbursement or deduction for any personal use on fuel cards to the identification of vehicles that could be swapped for EVs, our range of data-led services will give Hitachi’s clients the information they need to optimise their fleets.”
