Life Without Barriers Streamlines Fleet Management
We’re helping not-for-profit organisation Life Without Barriers (LWB) manage its data more efficiently – and ultimately enhance service delivery.
As part of a move to improve control over all aspects of its fleet, Life Without Barriers decided to bring previously outsourced elements of its fleet in-house.
Life Without Barriers has expanded nationally over more than 21 years, building relationships and providing programs to support people with disabilities, children and young people in out of home care, older people, those with mental health issues, the homeless and new migrants including refugees and asylum seekers.
As part of this initiative to take more control of its growing fleet, the not-for-profit organisation’s Fleet Management Department would act, among many roles, as an internal fleet leasing agent – meaning they would manage the procurement process from end to end.
Taking control with a tailored software solution
“Achieving optimum efficiency over the fleet is an important way for LWB to reduce non-essential costs throughout its business,” explained Nathan Reynolds, Corporate Services Manager.
In order to do this, LWB recognised the need for a powerful fleet management system to support this development, which is where we came in.
We implemented our enterprise level fleet management system, FleetWave, to support LWB by aggregating data from a wealth of sources such as accident information, insurance, fuel, HR data, suppliers, vehicle manufacturers, repairers and GPS providers.
As a result, our system gives LWB complete visibility over its fleet of more than 1,130 vehicles, helping it manage associated business workflows and data more efficiently.
“Using FleetWave, we are enhancing our ability to understand and manage complex data associated with key fleet business management activities – from procurements to disposal, vehicle accidents and damage, contracts, cost centres, environmental performance and much more,” added Nathan.
By managing the fleet process from end to end, LWB gains complete control over all costs with a complete suite of reports and customisation available which is fantastic for improving our efficiencies and allowing us to understand our business in more detail.

Our practice lead, Vijay Surti, added: “Our uniquely configurable architecture will support LWB in seamlessly bringing its fleet management operations in-house. Using the software, the fleet management team will be able to improve preventive maintenance and compliance oversight, and achieve complete visibility and control over all elements of this large and diverse fleet.
“We’re delighted to be able to help LWB with their asset management needs and look forward to working with them to deliver great results.”
