Prestige launches VehicleTrak to give fleets greater vehicle downtime control
Prestige Fleet Servicing has added a new VehicleTrak
function to its mainstream Unity operating platform to provide fleet managers
with greater transparency over the progress of work in the service maintenance
and repair (SMR) pipeline.
Using VehicleTrak, Prestige fleet clients can now view in
real time the progress of SMR work on all their vehicles on local bespoke
dashboards, allowing them to assess the rate of progress of jobs in the system.
As the new tool provides a clearer picture of the
whereabouts of their vehicles in the system, how long they will be off the road
and how soon before they will be operable again, vehicle downtime management is
Fleet managers can then plan contingencies, such as
replacement vehicles or short term rentals, if their vehicles are going to be
off-road for longer than first anticipated to ensure drivers are not left
stranded or work commitments unfulfilled.
The enhancement builds on the functionality of the Unity
platform which brings a number of benefits for service centres as well as fleet
users. The Unity platform is at the hub of the Prestige SMR network, and all
service centres within its network of around 340 outlets can access it as part
of their standard agreement.
Additionally, for fleet clients, an enhanced suite of
management information reports are now available to provide detailed analysis
of SMR work times and costs.
Fleet clients can now see overall average invoice values,
the average cost of invoices by manufacturer, model and derivative, tyre
condition and tyre costs, vehicle condition reports and online booking trends.
Prestige operations director Nick Hutton said:”
VehicleTrak will provide fleet managers with greater transparency over their
vehicles’ whereabouts in the pipeline and allow them to plan vehicle downtime
“This, along with our other enhancements to the Unity
platform, has helped deliver an assortment of real benefits to both fleet and
service centre managers.
“We are delivering on our commitment to provide service
centres with the capability to speed up the SMR process from authorisation to
completion, while at the same time providing our fleet customers with greater
transparency and more detailed analysis of all work our network carries out on
