A new White Paper authored by the team at Asset Finance International and sponsored by technology leaders Drive Software Solutions has identified key areas of opportunity for companies in the fleet leasing sector to significantly grow their businesses by utilising new mobility related services.

The White Paper contains case studies and real world examples of innovation around fleet mobility including initiatives by Sixt Rent a Car, Keyzee, Daimler Mobility Services, Leaseplan, Uber and Zipcar.

Whether it is the prospect of driverless cars, smart telematics or GPS enabled Apps appearing on driver’s smart-phones, fleet operators are seeing an explosion of new vehicle related technologies bringing with them potential to change the way fleets are managed.

For fleet operators, the fact that most of these new technologies stand alone and do not integrate with the enterprise systems that are used to manage drivers expenses, logistics or vehicles creates scope for additional administrative burden.

Capitalising on these opportunities will require leasing companies to develop new business models so they can combine different transport modes into a single, simple-to-use mobility solution. Getting that seamless service right will require using technology to build efficient, customer-focused systems.

Talking about the White Paper, Simon West-Oliver, Drive Software Solutions Sales and Marketing Director said: “As business travellers we all want to be able to take advantage of the latest technologies around mobility. Business people need to be able to switch between planes, trains and automobiles whether it is for reasons of speed, convenience or to manage costs and technology is now making that possible in a way that would have been impossible even 2 or 3 years ago.”

West Oliver continues: “This is both exciting and a potential nightmare for corporates who have large numbers of drivers and business travellers to administer. As such it presents a huge opportunity for the fleet leasing industry who through the management of company vehicle fleets are uniquely placed to bring the latest crop of mobility services to their corporate customers.”
