The latest upgrade enables Gregory to centrally manage stores and workshops across the UK, as well as managing fleet data for 750 vehicles and 1,000 trailers.
The operator also uses Freeway to handle fleet-related financial administration, as it integrates with the existing accounts system. The software automates internal invoicing from the centralised fleet services department, and integrates with parts suppliers to automate parts invoice processing. It also links to the Manpack fleet operations system showing vehicle availability, according to defect or routine maintenance requirements.
“The most beneficial feature is that we can centrally manage multiple stores and workshops,” says Nick Street, fleet services manager, Gregory Distribution. “This has allowed us to reduce our administration overhead; it also allows us to easily introduce standard process and procedure across all users.”
New reporting functionality development, he adds, has “enhanced our ability to analyse costs and trends within the fleet, allowing us to identify areas of high frequency and high cost, and act accordingly”.
Street concludes: “Freeway has developed and evolved into a powerful fleet/stock management tool... Freeway has always delivered the changes needed and, whenever we need a problem to be solved, the Freeway team are always there to help.”
