Go Plant is a leading UK provider of operated, self-drive specialist and municipal vehicles and plant hire to the public and private sectors. Go Plant provides services to its customers in the following three trading divisions: Go Plant Sweepers - the UK market leader in operated road sweeping and gully emptying. GPL Hire - a market leader in providing specialist vehicles to the public and private sector on short term rental and contract hire. Plant, Telehandlers and Site Accommodation - a division offering the hire of Telehandlers and Site Accommodation to the housing and industrial sectors. With substantial investment in its fleet over the years, Go Plant has maintained a position at the forefront of its field.
To help sustain this strong performance and improve service delivery levels to its customers, Go Plant also decided to invest in a sophisticated new fleet management system. Go Plant?s requirement was for a multi-user, browser-based software system that could automate existing procedures and reduce the administrative burden that was needed to manage a substantial fleet, including sweepers, gully-emptiers, tippers and refuse vehicles. Patrick Tierney, Go Plant?s Managing Director, said: "From the outset of the project we realised that all of our businesses would benefit from fully automated vehicle hire systems, including purchase order and sales invoicing, which could automatically produce management information and KPIs. Our vision was to network every one of our depots and contracts to head office, thereby providing a complete Fleet Management System. The final stage of the implementation will include a requirement for PDA systems for our drivers, which will improve our communications and routing with them, as well as generating customer invoices more quickly. After a thorough review of all the software systems available, we decided to choose FleetWave from Chevin Fleet Solutions due to its flexibility, versatility and portability." FleetWave had to meet numerous key requirements for Go Plant, including the ability to manage the company's: Fleet data Vehicle maintenance process Ordering process Invoicing process Hire process Workshop process Parts process Customer Relationship Management process With the ability to streamline these business operations, increase efficiencies enterprise-wide and manage large, complex fleet operations, with the added benefit of remote access via PDA, FleetWave is the optimum solution to meet Go Plant?s exact specification.
Patrick Tierney, Go Plant?s Managing Director, added: "FleetWave is a multi-faceted solution, which has revolutionised many different aspects of the Go Plant business. All hires, purchase orders, invoices and job cards go through the system and it gives us vital business intelligence at our fingertips, with one-click availability of essential management reports and information. For example, one particular report which used to take hours to produce can now be done in seconds. And from a cost control perspective, the system puts a limit onto purchases made by employees based upon their access level, so it eliminates excessive or unauthorised expenditure. FleetWave is very user - friendly, gives us full visibility of the whole fleet operation and will assist us as we continue to set the service standard for our customers now and in the future."
