Fleet Alliance has been chosen to manage Pinnacle Group’s fleet in order to streamline its fleet administration, reduce costs and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the fleet, the company said.
Pinnacle Group says they operate around 260 vans, largely within its specialist cleaning division – with a mix of Citroën Berlingo and For Transit Connect vans, plus a small number of larger tippers. In addition, the fleet comprises around 20 company cars on an open-choice policy, although these will be phased out and replaced by cash allowances.
Pinnacle Group Procurement Manager, Sarah Russell, said: “We decided to carry out an open market review and appoint an outsource specialist to improve the efficiency of our fleet management operations and administration, not least because we were being inundated with invoices on a daily basis due to the age, condition and number of suppliers within our fleet.”
Fleet Alliance has said it will use its e-Fleet cloud-based system, containing full details of all vehicles on the Pinnacle Group fleet.
The Glasgow-based firm added that the generation of more Management Information reports covering key areas including vehicle condition, mileage management, P46, P11D and MID reporting will now be possible, as well as 24/7 access to the information.
