Twelve new businesses have become part of the partner programme at FleetCheck so far in 2017.

It brings the total number of partners working with us to 37, including telematics providers, service and maintenance specialists, leasing companies and many others.

The new signees include leasing company Quorum, contract hire specialist Refleet, recruitment experts Clyde and Tay Group, and risk management advisers Turner Kenworthy.

Peter Golding, managing director at FleetCheck, said: “Since our very earliest days, we have sought out expert partners in the fleet sector with which to work.

“The purpose of these partnerships vary from company to company but essentially we help them complement and enhance the service they provide to their customers.

“For example, telematics companies partner with us because having our software in their portfolio enables them to offer a comprehensive fleet solution. Leasing companies and brokers partner with us because they can offer their customers complete fleet management rather than just funding. Risk management consultants partner with us so that they can offer tools to implement their solutions as well as advice. And so on.

“It’s always about using our software and expertise in order to strengthen their portfolio and offer additional services to existing customers.

“We also have some strategic partners who fall outside of the normal partner programme, with whom we work very closely, such as the Freight Transport Association, where – in addition to using our software – the arrangement is more about knowledge sharing and best practice. All of these relationships are very valuable.”

Peter said that interest in the partner programme had grown significantly during the last year or two.

 “It is definitely something that is thriving because, as a company, we put a lot of effort into creating productive relationships. We ensure than our partners are active and engaged, that they attend an induction, and that they work closely with us to ensure their marketing and general approach mirrors ours. Becoming a FleetCheck partner is a genuine commitment.”
