The Importance of an All-Inclusive Fleet Management Program
When it comes to managing a corporate fleet, it’s essential to consider the many moving pieces. Fleet management includes:
- Establishing procurement guidelines
- Tracking and completing administrative tasks for units in operation, such as registrations and insurance renewals
- Fielding driver questions and requests
- Managing your vehicle disposition cycle
Handling all of these tasks piecemeal can cause fleets to become operationally inefficient. A better solution? An all-inclusive fleet management program. At Motorlease, we significantly cut down your to-do list by providing you with a seamless operation in managing the day-to-day of your fleet.
The Problem with Piecemeal Fleet Management
We often speak with managers who believed they were getting an all-inclusive solution from their fleet management company, later learning of gaps in the offering. Often, customers are left to figure out solutions to fill the gaps in their fleet program, whether it’s finding insurance coverage or avoiding driver question fees. We see that some fixed-cost solutions sometimes come with a surprise bill down the road and a lack of a comprehensive solution.
Putting the Onus on Drivers Isn’t the Answer
To alleviate headaches with fragmented fleet management services, some turn to reimbursement or allowance programs to solve their fleet needs. On the surface, this method seems like the path of least resistance. Drivers use their own vehicles, handle their administrative tasks, and are compensated (either on a fixed or variable basis or a combination of the two) for the business use of the personal vehicle. However, a roadblock with reimbursement is that companies essentially give up control and leave themselves open to unsuspected liabilities. While it may seem like a simple fleet management method, the reality, is that it is far from optimal.
