BENEFIT: DAVE is saving fleets time
Fleets are benefitting from reduced administration time with Pendragon Contracts’ dedicated online Driver and Vehicle Extranet (DAVE) tool.
More than 30 companies are now using the system, which is helping to accelerate Pendragon’s fleet management service.
DAVE can be tailored to each organisation and branded with the company’s identity.
Typically, services include driver vehicle choice list, fleet policy, car tax calculator, advice on vehicle care and key contact details for drivers.
Optional functionality includes the ability for drivers to select and order vehicles that are aligned to a company’s car policy and whole life cost initiative.
This ensures full compliance across the business.
Hanson UK have been using DAVE for several months, and Androulla Sofroniou, Corporate Category Manager, said she has been impressed.
“DAVE has been hugely beneficial as part of our overall company car policy change.
“It allows us to set consistent standards and deliver fairness across the business.
“It’s streamlined and easy to use, and staff can make informed decisions about their vehicle choice that trades down and neutralises their personal tax liability.
“Our drivers have given DAVE a big thumbs-up which is great news for our business.”
Neal Francis, Managing Director of Pendragon Contracts, added: “Our online solution was designed to align with any corporate brand and be a user-friendly experience.
“DAVE is intuitive, responsive and very knowledgeable.
“Its introduction has certainly given us an edge in helping to develop relationships with existing clients and in securing new business.”
