The Institute of Transport Management has named Drive Software Solutions as “UK Fleet Management and Leasing Solutions Company 2012”.
Making the award, the Institute observed, “Fleet operators of all levels are faced with an ongoing battle to suppress costs and improve efficiency. Managers must find the optimum means of minimising off-road time, maintaining contracts and building new business relationships, and thus maintain financial wellbeing.
A good fleet management solution that can streamline operations and ultimately improve the bottom line is a must and this is exactly what Drive does. The Institute would like to extend its congratulations to the company on its well-deserved accolade. We are sure we will be hearing even more from them in future.”
ITM award winners are chosen based on entries voluntarily submitted by members of the Institute and by readers of the Institute’s official publication the Transport Journal.
As part of the nomination process, the Institute employs a full time team of researchers who remain in constant contact with leading industry associations and bodies involved in each sector of the transport industry.
Talking about the award win, DRIVE’s Sales and Marketing Director, Simon West-Oliver, said: ‘This is the second time DRIVE has won an award from the Institute of Transport Management, we were awarded European Automotive Software Solutions Company 2003, so it is very gratifying to be recognised once again. We understand that the Institute looked at our financial performance, geographical reach and customer satisfaction to arrive at it’s decision.’
Patrick Sheedy, Director of Media & Corporate Affairs at the Institute of Transport Management said: “Drive Software Solutions faced extremely strong competition from other leading Fleet Software Providers, and we feel that this accreditation is one that will contribute to the final decision in Fleet Software selection for many companies. The true experts are the managers who do a day-to-day job that requires a level of knowledge that can only be gleaned from years of experience. We appreciate the contribution that our Fleet manager members have made to the Awards Programme and endorse their selection of Drive Software Solutions for this prestigious accolade.”
