Fleet Logistics, Europe’s largest independent fleet management provider, is launching a free driver app to provide fleet drivers with access to all their vehicle details, mileage data, support services and other key information.
The ‘Fleet Logistics Mobility Control App’ is now available for all users of Windows smart phones on Fleet Logistics’ fleet of around 130,000 vehicles across Europe. They are soon to be joined by users of all Android and Apple smart phones.
The app provides a platform through which the driver can communicate with Fleet Logistics, keep their mileage records up-to-date, access details about preferred suppliers and find answers to frequently asked questions at any time of the day or night.
One of Fleet Logistics’ objectives with the introduction of the app was to improve the quality of driver data that is entered into the system, as improved data quality leads to a reduction in costs, improvement in productivity and an acceleration in the speed to the market.
The app also allows Fleet Logistics to communicate directly with drivers via broadcast messaging and to push out important communications or hot topics to drivers, such as the need to switch to winter tires for example.
The app provides drivers with direct online access to data that is also held within the Fleet.Online driver portal, and they can see relevant details about themselves and their vehicles through either the app or the online portal.
Available is information about suppliers, including leasing company and other suppliers, vehicle costs, the tax situation for the vehicle and all company fleet policy information.
Drivers are also provided with details of what to do in the event of an emergency such as a breakdown, as well as holding all service provider and insurance company details, and provides clear, concise instructions on how to access these services.
