Press Release - January 2021
Leading fleet management company Total Motion has turned to technology used by “Uber” to create a ground-breaking client Communications Hub for vehicle fleet operators.
The Midlands-based business – the largest family run fleet management provider in the UK - has spent two years and more than £1m in developing the hi-tech software, offering fleet users a unique software system.
The new system - which will be free for all of its existing clients - will dispense with the need for emails and telephone calls, as all communication and reporting can be done via the new portal.
And thanks to the investment in this technology, it can also be accessed via a PWA app, which gives clients both online and offline reporting options, again something not offered by Total Motion competitors.
In addition to providing businesses with up-to-date information on their company vehicles, it will also be equally beneficial to those operating so called “grey fleets”, namely paying employees who use their own vehicles for company business an allowance.
Even though these vehicles are not company-owned, the company is still responsible for ensuring the vehicles are roadworthy and the driver has the correct licence, insurance and tax.
Other benefits of the Total Motion system are that it ensures compliance, permits tracking and tracing on request and the client gets backend access to the database.
It allows drivers to do live real time safety checks and report faults via the app and the app will also push notifications and messages to the user.
Simon Hill, Total Motion Managing Director, said:
“For the last 20 years, Total Motion has been leading the way within the vehicle leasing industry for innovation.
“We are very excited to announce the launch of our new customer Communications Hub, which we have been developing behind the scenes over the last two years.
“This ground-breaking new reporting system, which we have trialled with a number of clients, puts Total Motion in a different league to others in the fleet management industry.
“We looked at what our competitors were offering their customers and decided we wanted to offer ours something unique; a Communications Hub that will save them time, money and also protect them from potential legal action.
“For our clients, those operating company fleets and those with ‘grey fleets’, it means they will receive a much higher level of service from the Total Motion team. Our app uses PWA technology, which is used by the likes of Uber, and importantly can be used to input data on and offline.”
Simon Hill added:
“For the last 20 years Total Motion has been leading the way within the fleet management industry, and our Communications Hub is the latest addition to our ground-breaking innovations.”
