Defining a new strategy, rolling out a tender and signing an international contract with a leasing company is one thing, making sure the contract is successfully implemented in each country is quite another. Here’s how Business Lease helps you make sure your strategy looks good on paper and in real life.
Proper preparation prevents poor performance
Making your implementation a success starts in the pre-tender phase. Business Lease helps you define targets that aren’t only clear and ambitious but also, and above all, realistic. As a family-owned company with an international presence, Business Lease has both the flexibility and the expertise required to take your strategy to the next level.
It is vital to involve all stakeholders in the implementation process to ensure your strategy won’t be a paper tiger. Our experts have the tools and expertise to communicate efficiently and convincingly with all stakeholders.
Better cost efficiency & process efficiency
Managing fleets on a higher, more international level can lead to improved cost efficiency, which can easily be compared between service providers. Adding PHEVs or limiting the number of OEMs on your vehicle list can also lead to a higher cost efficiency as such vehicles often have a lower TCO.
However, this higher cost efficiency can only be attained once the strategy has been implemented. The sooner you implement your international strategy, the sooner your savings start adding up.
Process efficiency is an advantage that is not to be overlooked even though it is much more difficult to benchmark and compare. If your drivers need to take vehicles that require maintenance to a dealership at half an hour’s drive, that entails considerable hidden costs. Even more so if another driver needs to pick them up and drive them to the office.
Imagine the savings you can achieve if your leasing company takes this care out of your hands and has the dealer pick up the vehicle at your office instead. This is another example of how your strategy, once successfully implemented, will help improve your bottom line.
Speeding up the implementation of your strategy can also be done through the legacy fleet. You may have an older fleet that used to be managed in-house, which is a labour-intensive job. Business Lease can take that out of your hands and ensure your fleet is maintained in good shape and advise you when it is best to replace vehicles.
Indeed, implementation isn’t only about the new vehicles you add to your fleet. It’s also about integrating your legacy fleets.
Time to turn your to-do list upside down
Never waste a good crisis! In a time when the economy and indeed the world are paralysed by the coronavirus, you shouldn’t sit back and wait for things to go back to normal. If you’re not able to receive or order new vehicles, turn your to-do list upside down! Now is the perfect opportunity to reflect whether your strategy is being implemented correctly – and perhaps to recalibrate it.
It is also in times like these that it is most useful to enter into talks with Business Lease – no strings attached. Let our consultants help you make sure you’ll be better prepared than ever once the coronavirus has been defeated and your business resumes its normal pace.
