POLICY: Bathstore opt for Pendragon
Bathstore are redefining their fleet policy with the assistance of Pendragon Contracts following their recent de-merger from Wolseley.
The new policy aims to introduce an effective vehicle replacement cycle and fleet management programme, as well as implement a vehicle choice list based on a whole life cost model.
Pendragon Contracts have already identified several manufacturer vehicles and models fitting the bill to suit eight employee grades from merchandising up to senior management.
They have also introduced their Driver and Vehicle Extranet (DAVE) to enable drivers to select and order vehicles aligned to Bathstore’s new car policy and whole life cost initiative.
Paul Broderick, Head of HR at Bathstore, said: “The novation and management of existing vehicles to achieve an effective vehicle replacement cycle was really important.
“With its total fleet management proposition and extensive knowledge, Pendragon Contracts reacted quickly and has been a valuable partner in the development of our new fleet policy.”
John Given, Sales and Marketing Director at Pendragon Contracts, added: “Because of the variety of grades and roles within the organisation our vehicle choice shortlist had to meet several criteria while providing critical whole life cost information to Bathstore.
“The exercise has been very effective in redefining and improving its car policy and documentation.”
