Your car policy is essential to control your fleet and your fleet related costs. We consider the car policy not as an isolated document : it is the main tool to steer behaviour, promote supply chain selections and emphasise your company’s concern for driver safety. Our services include document review, globalisation or regionalisation of the car policy and the roll out of larger policy related projects that include communication plans, stakeholder engagement and project management.
The need for savings projects can come from a company’s objectives or an excessive or uncontrolled spend in the past. OviDrive can help you design a savings program based on either policy, fleet management or sourcing. Our savings programs can have a high or low driver impact, depending on your preferences.
Our team of project and change Managers are available to execute any type of fleet related project. We can offer project design, stakeholder engagement sessions, project roll-out and integrated or separate change management solutions.
Fear of change often limits our willingness to integrate new suppliers, move from sole to dual supply or tender objectively. The quality of new supplier integration and the management of change defines the quality of your project. This is where our experts can step in and create success.
Technology evolves quickly, behaviour and preferences however may evolve slowly. We can assist you in the transition from a combustible program to a new and efficient mix of powertrains that is non-disruptive and suitable to your needs.
Selecting the right sourcing methodology is often reduced to its financial impact: the cost of leasing compared to the cost of purchase and the cheapest option selected. In our view, this is only true in some cases. In the less mature markets for example, a number of additional factors may need to be taken into account : availability of networks, increased administrative workload and invoices versus expense notes to name a few. Making the wrong sourcing choice may result in increased idle time for your vehicles and your employees. Our services on the ground are aware of the parameters that will help you make the right decision.
After the tendering, the contract needs to be vetted. OviDrive will assist your legal teams with the vetting process and identify the risks in your supplier contract. We offer the service of designing standard level agreements and key performance indicators that will guarantee optimum service once the contract is executed.
Putting the correct supply chain in place is a complex process where balancing will be crucial : Supply chain dynamics can't be neglected. Selecting an unsuitable supplier can offset the entire balance and add risk and cost to your fleet. Due to our global view of the fleet industry, OviDrive can help you assess the strengths and weaknesses of your setup and suggest change towards a healthier and more balanced supply chain.
Communication is only partially about language. A communication objective needs to be set in the correct cultural context, with the right tools. Because OviDrive works with people who are familiar with the local cultural context, we can help you sell your vision outside of your own environment.
Tendering in the fleet management discipline can't be compared to commodity tendering. It’s not about the price of the car, nor about the upfront monthly lease fee. Costs incur over the life cycle of a vehicle and can consist of many surprises. Tendering in fleet management is therefore more about future risk mitigation. We have the necessary expertise in house to assist you with issuing tender documents, establishing cost comparisons or even taking over the complete tendering process with a more comprehensive methodology than bidding tools can do.
Control is key in fleet management and rarely is full transparency available (especially in the less mature fleet markets). The fleet owner may to implement external solutions. Telematics is one of the technologies that can take care of these concerns : current mileage, driver behaviour, private vs business use and route planning are just a few examples. The reality is that telematics have an upfront cost, but reduce fuel cost, increase safety and have a positive impact on employee efficiency. OviDrive can assist you with the tendering of the supplier, the selection of the correct product and the roll out of the program, including user/stakeholder engagement.
Mobility has become the most fashionable word in the fleet world. Many suppliers can offer intermediate solutions, such as car sharing or flexible products where the employee can have one type of car for daily use and another type of car to go on holidays. However this doesn’t cover the true mobility needs of a business. As a customer, you need to puzzle together a number of solutions to obtain a true mobility package and bold transitions may tend not to work. Replacing the company car with a mobility budget might be attractive for millennials, but not for all employees. OviDrive experts can design a change program for you, that includes a communication and engagement strategy for your employees, help you to move to mobility in a controlled manner and integrate solutions as they are developed by the Industry.
