ECS Outsources Fleet Management
In order to improve efficiency and reduce internal workload we have outsourced our fleet management to CBVC Vehicle Management.
Gary Jordan said “We have an excellent qualified Fleet Manager in house, but wanted to use his talents elsewhere in the business. CBVC were introduced to us by a new senior employee whose previous employer company used their services for some years.
Our criteria in looking for an outsourced partner was a company who could deliver cost savings, but also maintain our strong Duty of Care and H&S disciplines, emphasised by our RoSPA Gold Award for Occupational Health & Safety. This is important for our own staff safety, and also provides a fully auditable H&S trail on vehicles demanded by our clients who include major utilities and the Environment Agency.
We found that CBVC has specialist teams in vehicle supply; vehicle finance; short term and flexible rental and full vehicle and driver operational management. Their service delivery is backed up by a 24 hour helpline and state of art online IT management system giving us access to live data on vehicles, fuel and employees 24/7, so no more spreadsheets. The system alone would have cost us in excess of CBVC’s annual fees yet alone a qualified management team behind it.
It therefore became an easy decision to appoint them as they manage the fleet for half the cost, strengthen our back office support with their specialist teams, and save us recruiting a new employee”.
Mike Manners, CBVC Director, commented:
“Our business model is ideally suited to a business like ECS. They have a valuable employee whose talents can be used elsewhere in the business and can outsource their fleet management for a fraction of the price of a qualified replacement.
We look forward to working for ECS, and delivering further cost savings over the coming years”.
