Dawson Group rolls out FleetCheck software for van rental09 January 2019

Commercial vehicle rental business Dawson Group is rolling out fleet management software from FleetCheck to its van rental customers.

The implementation, says Dawson, is part of a “strategic shift” to broaden its product offering from rental to other methods of vehicle acquisition and a dedicated tracking solution.

FleetCheck’s product will be provided on a white label basis for vehicle maintenance and, with a walkaround driver check app, for driver compliance – within both Dawson’s customer base and its own maintenance team.

Chris Beeton, head of sales at Dawson Group, said: “We will be offering the software initially to our key accounts where we can examine the benefits for both ourselves and the customer. Once we have established the product, we will be rolling it out across our field sales team of 25 people covering the whole of the UK in early 2019.

“The software, we believe, will enable both our customers and ourselves to ensure routine maintenance checks are proactively scheduled and completed on time, as well as providing us with an accurate view of the vehicles they operate.”

Dawson Group evaluated several software providers before choosing FleetCheck, says Beeton: “The FleetCheck solution was the best fit for our business because we specialise in small fleet operators who are running fleets of one to 150 vehicles.

“We have over a thousand live trading customers with an average vehicle on hire number of just four vans, and the solution works very well for businesses that fall into this category.”
