EXPANSION: Days roll out Jaama technology
Days Contract Hire are hoping for further expansion after implementing new internet-based technology from Jaama aimed at boosting efficiencies.
Jaama’s Key2 leasing and vehicle management system has been introduced by Days, who are hoping to improve their efficiency and increase management reporting capability for clients.
Days claim they turned to Jaama after surveying the marketplace for a technologically-advanced system that would underpin their growth aspirations.
Neil Williams, Group IT Manager of Days Contract Hire, said: “Our previous system provider was not able to invest in the technology and the functionality we required to enable us to grow our business.
“Therefore, we surveyed the market and were resolute that Jaama’s Key2 system offered immediate benefits and critically, the company’s policy of continued investment in technology meant that it would support the development and launch of new products and services in the future that will help the business expand.”
Days Contract Hire’s relationship with Jaama began in 2009 when they introduced the driver licence validation service.
However, the introduction of Key2 has seen Days introduce a wide range of additional services, including vehicle quotations, vehicle ordering and management, driver management, accounts and client billing.
“Until the introduction of Key2, our fleet clients had to request management information from ourselves,” added Mr Williams.
“We would produce those reports manually but the data was not ‘live’ nor in such detail as now.
“Clients, via their own ‘Dashboard’, now have direct online access to a suite of reports which provide, in real-time, comprehensive information on every conceivable issue relating to their vehicles and drivers.
“The quality and quantity of data that Days Contract Hire can now provide is market-leading thus delivering significant benefits to clients.
“Key2 also delivers major administrative efficiencies internally and improved visibility of the wide range of assets that we own.
“Implementation of Key2 has given Days Contract Hire an industry-leading platform through which we can introduce exciting new products and services, further drive cost-saving efficiencies and compliance for our clients.”
Martin Evans, Managing Director of Jaama, added: “Key2 is unquestionably the system of choice for small and medium-sized vehicle contract hire and leasing companies and places them on a level playing field with the industry’s largest organisations.
“An increasing number of smaller vehicle leasing and fleet management companies, such as Days Contract Hire, are finding that they can compete with larger competitors by forming business technology partnerships with Jaama, which understands their individual business requirements and provides appropriate solutions.
“As Jaama’s Key2 system is so technically advanced and configurable it negates the requirement to spend vast amounts of time and financial resource developing in-house systems.”
