THE SME focused online fleet management platform ODO has just upgraded its services.
The Oracle Cloud-based SaaS (Software as a Service) has simplified many of the processes: sign up; workflow configuration; SMS support; and vehicle allocation/ deallocation.
General Manager of ODO, Gordon Lyster, commented:
“The simplified sign up process is exactly that. We asked ourselves, could this be made even easier? If someone has a headache with a small fleet and driver related admin, we think it is important for them to be able to get online and deal with that as quickly as possible.”
ODO was launched in January this year with a free first month provision, followed by £5 per month per car.
Although targeted at SME small fleets, ODO can be used by enterprises of all sizes.
The fleet management platform allows businesses to manage their company cars, cars used for business and their business drivers on the go, from any device.
ODO says that business owners and SME directors tasked with looking after the firm’s company cars can simply login, and start managing their vehicles and drivers.
Items that can be tracked include vehicle and driver data, fuel consumption, mileage, servicing and maintenance. Automatic alerts and reminders means small business owners can focus on getting on with day to day business, while covering off duty of care issues.
“Feedback from our users, especially around the use of employee’s own vehicles for business journeys, known as ‘Grey Fleet’, has told us that firms want to be able to react quickly to changes of circumstance.
“With Grey Fleet it is important to have an easy way for employees to notify that they’ve changed a car and for the fleet manager to be able to know that it is taxed, has an MOT and is insured for business use.
“With that in mind, our technical team have streamlined the Allocation/Deallocation process so that vehicles can be securely added and removed even more quickly than before.”
