Holman knows downtime costs you money, and with a myriad of contributing variables, you need a strategy to bring them all together. We’ll work with you to understand your specific challenges in controlling fuel costs, managing maintenance and repairs, and keeping your vehicles inspected, licensed, and compliant. Our vehicle management services help you manage all aspects of your fleet in a way that saves time, controls costs, and prevents downtime.
Preventative maintenance can help you avoid vehicle downtime, and prevent more costly repairs down the road; but it requires strategic planning and coordination with a holistic, data-driven approach. Far from the traditional “break and fix” model of vehicle maintenance, Holman deploys a “predict and prevent” approach, bringing the industry’s best talent and technology together. We identify and act on root maintenance causes and failure trends so your vehicles stay in optimal operating condition at the optimal cost. When significant repairs are needed, we examine any trends in component failures to help predict and prevent potential issues across similar vehicles.
Some unexpected repairs are, of course, inevitable, and when vehicles do require significant repairs, Holman can get your drivers back on the road faster. We alleviate the stresses that can come along with handling fleet maintenance and repair. Having to micromanage multiple vendors prolongs downtime and impacts your business’s overall efficiency. With Holman as your sole maintenance provider, the process of fleet repair is streamlined. Our maintenance call centres boast more than 100,000 vendors across North America, including over 22,000 across Canada, so we can match your driver with the most-qualified experts to repair their vehicle any time, anywhere. Our large parts and vendor network saves time and costs on every repair, leveraging financial models that support your fleet’s operational decisions.
If your vehicle can’t make it to the repair centre, your drivers can feel confident our roadside assistance is with them every kilometer of the road. In the event of a breakdown, lock-out, flat tire, or other incident, we can confirm the driver is safe, coordinate roadside service or towing logistics, and route the vehicle to a convenient repair facility.
While you can rarely control what happens before an accident, Holman can help you to manage what happens after, with safety and downtime in mind. Once your drivers are out of harm’s way, we start working to get them right back on the road. You can rely on our technicians to arrange towing, schedule repairs at a convenient, quality repair facility, acquire a temporary vehicle, and monitor all repairs through to completion to ensure costs are within budget.
When your driver makes an accident report with one of our technicians, you, your risk department, your liability carrier, and anyone else you designate will receive a notification within one hour of taking the call. You can then access all accident-related data and reports through Insights, including claim and driver details, purchase orders, third-party information, images, police reports, and subrogation status. If your driver is considered not at-fault, we’ll launch a subrogation investigation to pursue recovery of costs related to collision repair, rental bills, loss of use, and a diminished value assessment if applicable.
Fuel is a major recurring cost for any fleet, but those costs can be monitored and controlled to keep your fleet running efficiently. We start with well communicated fuel management policies that ensure fuel card users understand the guidelines around fuel purchasing, speeding, idling, and fuel conservation can all have a major impact on your overall fuel costs.
Then, we gather data from every vehicle to identify trends and areas for improvement, like driver safety training that can reduce fuel wasting habits like hard braking and aggressive acceleration, possible fraud indicators like changes in kilometers-per-litre and cost per litre, tank capacity violations, fuel type mismatch, and non-fuel purchases.
Finally, by managing an industry-leading fuel card program in-house as well as partnering with MasterCard™, we ensure you have the best opportunities for cost reduction and data gathering, whether you fuel at a retail pump, a private site or through a mobile provider. All your transactions are included in our consolidated billing, making it easy to manage your expenses.
Getting your vehicles fully licensed, registered, and ready to work requires time and the right expertise. Holman’s licensing compliance professionals manage all of the regulations and paperwork so you can focus on your core business, and your vehicles can stay on the road generating revenue for your company.
We manage your initial documentation and process your licensing and compliance needs so your vehicles are fully licensed, registered, and ready to work on day one. Then we guarantee your renewals are done right by automatically tracking all expiration dates for your vehicles, while our licensing professionals work in accordance with specific provincial guidelines. Even if your vehicles aren’t leased through Holman, your titles can be stored in our secure, fireproof vault, with every title accounted for and accessible, ensuring 100 percent clean title audits.
You can be confident your fleet is properly licensed through our comprehensive reporting and telematics integration, an all-inclusive international fuel tax agreement (IFTA) and an international registration plan (IRP) program ensures compliance for both leased and owned fleets.
Vehicles today generate terabytes of data that can help you optimize your day-to-day fleet operations and plan for big decisions and major changes. However, data is only useful when it’s collected and reported in a way that helps you cut through the noise and can glean true insights about your vehicle performance and opportunities for improvement. Our web-based tools and consulting collect every piece of data generated by every vehicle throughout its lifecycle and allow you to drill down into any or all fleet activities to expose the vehicles with the greatest costs, risks and time drains that affect your fleet’s overall performance. In this way, you can manage a vehicle’s cost throughout its lifecycle and align your fleet needs with your financial strategy
