For 12-months from September 2016, we have confirmed 27% local business growth in our EMEA region. Attributed to a number of key activities and initiatives including significant product developments; prestigious award wins; world-class customer service; and local team expansion, this growth surpassed last year’s target and is forecast to continue into FY2018.

Year-end results also indicated a step-change in the evolution of selling for the region, revealing that new clients preferred to purchase software as a service (SAAS), reporting a four-fold revenue increase for this model compared to the previous year.

Over the course of the year, FleetWave has undergone a number of significant developments that have generated further interest in the product and greater awareness of its capabilities. Making the most of the latest generation of web-based technologies, FleetWave 2.28 – the latest version of our software – now delivers a host of new features to intelligently manage fleet and associated data. New enhancements include:

New specific maintenance planning tool for trucks & trailers, including integration with Transport Planning Software
New multi-currency and global features to for international organisations operating across borders
New reservation tool integrated with car sharing platforms
Customisable fuel economy labels that can be configured with region-specific values, colours and defaults
A standard API that allows users to extend their integration options by granting secure, external access
A new Events Engine tool that allows users to build rules that will automatically trigger and send messages

Paul Verkinderen, Vice President for EMEA Sales at Chevin Fleet Solutions, said:

“Chevin’s growing success is a reflection of our software’s evolution, and the ongoing enhancements, updates and improvements we are making that address new industry trends and evolving customer needs in fleet management and beyond.

“Among new and legacy clients, FleetWave is more than just a centralised system for managing entire fleet operations. It is now increasingly used as a business intelligence tool by entire organisations.”

Other, notable developments and achievements during 2017 include numerous prestigious award wins and recognitions – from ‘The Best Global Fleet Management Software Provider’ at the Software and Technology Awards to ‘Innovation in Risk Management’ at Fleet World Honours 2017 – and Chevin team expansion on both a local and global scale.
