FleetTech - Merging Fleet With Technology

FleetTech Model

Every day at Merchants Fleet, we strive to provide the highest value possible to our clients.

We accomplish this through our FleetTech model that merges fleet with technology. We act not just as a fleet management company, but as a FleetTech partner – a strategic advisor and a curator of the growing mobility ecosystem within our industry. This approach ensures our clients get the best performance out of their fleets through a streamlined process, data-driven platforms, and unique opportunities to connect with new technologies, pilot programs, and business partners.

Our Process

Our FleetTech model is focused on effectively servicing our clients at every stage – from onboarding, through value-add, to turnover. We follow a thorough, six-step process that incorporates fleet integration, a superior client experience, acquisition of vehicles, fleet registration, customizing your suite of fleet products, and hassle-free remarketing.

Our Platforms

Merchants technology platforms are a cornerstone of our FleetTech model. We aim to provide unique value to our clients through data visibility via our fleet management platform, TotalView, and by facilitating easy mobility via our vehicle sharing platform FleetShare. This effective use of technology can drive operational efficiencies, manage costs, and keep drivers safe.

The LaunchPAD

It is our full-time job to stay informed about the latest technology and service options for our clients. Merchants has developed the FleetTech Launchpad, which facilitates fleet technology pilots so we can provide a broad range of services for our clients. We partner with companies to explore applications for their technology or service, develop a concept, find a sponsor among our clients, and ultimately launch a pilot with the technology or service to determine whether it is scalable.

Our Network

We have a network of strategic alliances that serves as an efficient way for our fleet clients to tap into the broader mobility ecosystem and access more options. From OEMs to financial partners to emerging technology firms, Merchants Fleet acts as a single point of connection to everything FleetTech.
