Service, maintenance and repair (SMR) for fleets is coming under pressure on three fronts, according to Epyx.
But Epyx warns fleets to ‘take care' as evidence emerges of "serious" component failures, alongside flat tyres and batteries, after vehicles have stood idle.
Fleets should not overlook the SMR advantages mobile mechanics can offer during the coronavirus pandemic, says Epyx.
Increasing connectivity means it’s imperative that the right information is delivered to fleets at the right time, says Epyx.
Epyx extends its 1link Service Network reach in Denmark.
Epyx’s 1link Service Network service, maintenance and repair platform has recorded its 100 millionth fleet transaction today.
The introduction of clean air zones (CAZs) could signal a significant rise in the number of penalty charge notices generated by fleets, warns Epyx.
A free online service, maintenance and repair (SMR) portal is being offered by Fuel Card Services to its 55,000 customer organisations plus all businesses across the UK.
An increase in the number of company cars fitted with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) means fleets need to reassess repair strategies, says Epyx.
Epyx has created a used car engagement team as the number of dealers utilising its 1link Disposal Network platform to acquire stock continues to grow.
An increasing number of ex-lease vehicles are being repatriated back into franchise dealer networks by manufacturers as demand for used stock increases, says Epyx.
Large fleets disposing of thousands of cars and vans every year are becoming more trusting of automated methods of disposal and cascades are becoming much more widely used, according to epyx.
Epyx will host a 1link Disposal Network Christmas online car and van auction that will run from Friday December 21 to Thursday December 27.
Epyx says it is seeing evidence of a return to more regional-based remarketing in recent months.
PCH vehicles in corporate circles could be neglected due to a lack of inclusive maintenance packages, warns epyx.
Rapidly growing use of a tool that automatically prices used cars for online trade sales is prompting Epyx to develop an enhanced version.
Epyx has become the latest company to sign-up to ICFM’s rapidly expanding Corporate Investor Programme.
Fleets and dealers are starting to develop a modern, online version of the traditional motor trade knowledge to buy and sell vehicles, claims Epyx.
A lack of clarity over future company car tax rates, thanks to the introduction of WLTP, is leading to a rise in daily rental bookings, says Epyx.
New tool designed to make car and van damage easier to manage for both fleets using daily rental and their suppliers.
