When PHH Arval first introduced our PHH Onboard fleet telematics program in 2005, not many fleet managers had heard of the technology or its applications for their businesses. That landscape has changed dramatically, with more and more companies now implementing telematics programs for their fleets. As you think about whether the technology is right for you, we thought it would be useful to share the Top 5 reasons our clients are using fleet telematics:

One of the most critical tasks in fleet management is preparing your vehicle selector. How do you know if the vehicles are right for the job? What options are out there? What factors other than acquisition costs do you need to think about?
Whether you're new to the process or already experienced in the science of creating fleet vehicle selectors, it's always good to take a fresh look at the things you should consider.

Chocolate and peanut butter. Bert and Ernie. There are some pairings that bring two great elements together into a whole that is even better in combination. I’m going to add a new pairing to the record: Fleet Management and Procurement. I had the pleasure of hosting a panel and discussion at the #NAFA2013 Conference in Atlantic City last week which brought together professionals from both domains.

Fleet accidents are costly. Reducing these costs is a priority for any fleet. One effective way to reduce collision costs is through subrogation – the process of seeking reimbursement from the responsible party for an accident claim.
PHH recently conducted a webinar, “Recovering Accident Costs Through Subrogation,” which focused on enhancing reimbursement collection from at-fault parties after a fleet vehicle collision. We found that quite often fleets overlook costs that can be recovered in areas beyond physical damage to the vehicle.

All of us on PHH’s Vehicle Accident Services team work every day with companies that want to reduce their fleet accident costs. One important way is through subrogation – that is, recovering costs when your fleet drivers are involved in collisions and they’re not at fault. Most companies try to get reimbursed for the physical damage to the vehicle – but we wanted to let you know there is much more you can do.

The business world is filled with buzzwords that suddenly appear, grow in popularity, get used ad nauseam by every company and then just as suddenly disappear. A few that come to mind: “Thinking outside the box,” “paradigm shift,” “granularity” and “pushing the envelope.”
