Go Plant Fleet Services has deployed Jaama’s Key2 fleet management system to support the management of its commercial vehicle contract hire and rental business.
The firm operates 3,100 commercial and specialist vehicles and 600 items of plant, and is using Key2 to replace a number of legacy systems and switch to a single consolidated platform, following the acquisition of Go Plant by Endless LLP in 2017.
Phase one of its implementation went live at Go Plant’s contract hire division and included Key2’s contract hire, vehicle management, quotes, workshop and stores, SMR, rental, customer dashboard and all financial modules.
The vehicle rental and operated plant hire business goes live in phase two later this year. It includes the driver management, full stock processing, accident management, driver management and plant modules, while there are also plans to roll out workshop touchscreens to technicians.
The solution enables Go Plant to streamline operations but also provides a full end-to-end solution which includes finance integration. This brings full cost transparency to every step of the business processes.
Health & Safety and compliance was also a key consideration when finding a new fleet management system.
Group IT manager Rhianna Greaves explained: “A major benefit of Key2 is that it gives us the ability to store electronic records on our vehicles, and track MOTs in real time across our fleet which has been key to delivering vehicle compliance, particularly during the pandemic. We can now also record warranty related claims and follow them up with dealers.
“The most powerful feature is the Key2 reporting tool. When customers request bespoke reports, these can be quickly and efficiently generated. Everybody has management information at their fingertips, and it is helping us learn more about key areas of our business such as vehicle lifetime operating costs. This will have a positive impact on our future procurement and pricing,” added Greaves.
