Gregory Distribution has implemented the latest software from Freeway Fleet Systems to centrally manage stores and workshops across the UK.
With a fleet of 750 vehicles and 1,000 trailers, the Freeway system is used at seven locations. It has significantly reduced administration and allowed standard processes and procedures to be implemented across the fleet opertation.
Freeway has worked with Gregory Distribution for over a decade, continually enhancing the software to meet changing, sometimes complex requirements. Freeway provides useful Key Performance Indicator data on the fleet and as well as Freeway generated reports, the software integrates with Gregory’s IT platform for additional KPI reporting.
“The most beneficial feature for our business model is that we can centrally manage multiple stores and workshops, this has allowed us to reduce our administration overhead and easily introduce standard procedure across all users,” said Nick Street, Fleet Services Manager at Gregory Distribution. “Freeway has enhanced our ability to analyse costs and trends within the fleet, this allows us to identify areas of high frequency and high cost and act accordingly.”
Freeway handles fleet-related financial administration and integrates with Gregory’s accounts system. The software automates internal invoicing from the centralised Fleet Services Department, ensuring cost transparency for a range of business units within the group. There is also integration with parts suppliers to automate parts invoice processing, and links to the Manpack fleet operations system show vehicle availability – according to defect or routine maintenance requirements.
