For far too long, fleet managers have accepted less than optimal solutions when facilitating their organization’s vehicle pool. At Merchants Fleet, we challenge the status quo by using innovative technology to eliminate common fleet management pitfalls such as under-utilization inefficiency, lost keys, and time-consuming logistics. We solve the issues that others do not. The result is a fleet that is more nimble, cost-effective, and easy to access by drivers across your organization, while fleet managers are able spend less time on pool management due to self-service technology.
Transform Your Fleet
By incorporating big data, vehicle telematics, and mobility technology, we have achieved a new standard in pool management: true fleet optimization. Our software-based platform, FleetShare, is built with the latest pool technology capacities and is backed by the brightest minds in the fleet industry. While its online reservation and wireless vehicle access alone would be a tremendous improvement over the existing infrastructure, the real benefit lies in having the right vehicles at the right time, and up-to-the-minute data so you know how to reduce inefficiencies and better meet your demands.
