Our Unique Approach
At Optimum Fleet we work with our customers to create efficient fleet operations which meet their specific requirements. As we are a truly independent fleet management company, we work with a range of suppliers to maximise value and minimise costs for our clients. This, coupled with our focus on operational excellence and outstanding customer service, forms the bedrock of our unique fleet management outsourcing service.
How we do it
We focus on four key areas:
We work with our clients to understand what it is they want from their fleet and align this to the overall objectives of the business. With consideration of external factors such as fiscal and legislative frameworks, we develop an effective fleet strategy and service delivery model.
2. Cost of Ownership
We work to a total cost of ownership model, giving our clients full insight into whole life vehicle costs, not just monthly rental figures. Our heritage in procurement outsourcing makes us experts in cost reduction and supply management - meaning we are well positioned to garner maximum value from the fleet supply chain.
When the strategy and service delivery model have been agreed, we work with our customers to manage the supply chain. Our extensive knowledge of the fleet supply chain allows us to quickly map the right providers in terms of cost and service delivery.
We leverage our large fleet buying power to secure beneficial commercial terms which would otherwise be unattainable for our individual clients.
Suppliers are monitored through service level agreements (SLAs) and key performance indicators (KPIs) which are agreed specifically with each client. Any change to the supplier base is always agreed with the customer to ensure they remain in control.
Our customers remain in control of their fleet through regular reviews and the provision of appropriate management information. Our services are also monitored through SLAs and KPIs specific to each client.
