SERS Energy Solutions (SERS) has selected Fleet Alliance to professionalise the management of its mixed fleet of 140 cars and vans, following a tender exercise.

Caerphilly-based SERS, experts in the design, supply and installation of energy-saving solutions, has been one of the country’s leading specialists in external wall insulation for more than 20 years.

Nationally, the company operates around 35 leased cars for sales staff, management and directors, and 105 vans, primarily for site-based staff such as supervisors and site managers, which are purchased outright.

The company previously managed its fleet in-house but, as the business grew, so the complexity of managing the fleet grew with it. A board decision was taken to go out to tender to a number of leading fleet management suppliers, and Fleet Alliance was selected.

Following the appointment, the SERS fleet is now being managed online through Fleet Alliance’s state-of-the art, cloud-based fleet management system and reporting suite, e-Fleet, replacing the manual spreadsheet system that was previously relied on.

Fleet Alliance is also increasing support for all SERS drivers with the introduction of its award-winning e-Fleet Mobile app. The app allows drivers to update business and private mileage, electronically complete vehicle inspection reports and access key support services remotely through their smart phones and other mobile devices.

Key services include new tyres, glass replacement, service and MOT booking, maintenance booking, breakdown and recovery, accident management and insurance details, all available through the app.

Drivers can also use the app to book their next service directly with nominated dealerships and independent garages, thus speeding up the whole service delivery process.

SERS Group Director, Mike Roberts, commented: “As our business expanded so it became increasingly obvious that we needed a specialist provider to help manage our fleet more professionally.

“The appointment of Fleet Alliance will make our lives easier as well as providing us with detailed reporting of fleet costs, mileage returns and the condition of our vehicles.  It will also free up someone’s time internally and allow us to concentrate on our core business,” he said.

Fleet Alliance Corporate Sales Director, Rob Wentworth-James, added: “Naturally, we are delighted to have been selected by SERS to manage the company fleet more professionally and bring increased efficiency to the fleet.

“Our e-fleet platform will provide regular reporting on all aspects of the fleet which will enable the more accurate and error-free management of the SERS fleet.

”At the same time, we have increased support levels for SERS drivers through our e-fleet mobile app which provides them a whole raft of services which can all be accessed remotely at the touch of a button,” he said.
