Its premises at the Cotswold Business Park in Kemble, Gloucestershire now total 6,000 square feet, providing what managing director Peter Golding describes as “ample” space for future expansion as well as room for training and conference facilities.
He said: “It’s not quite the end of the year but we have signed 282 new clients who together operate 46,700 cars, vans and trucks. That means we have a total of more than 2,046 clients with 271,088 vehicle assets now using our software.
“Since the turn of the decade, we have seen probably a more than 15% increase every year in our customer base and that trend looks set to continue, so this seems like an ideal time to increase our footprint and ensure we have the right space for the future.”
The key factors driving expansion had been general business moves towards increased levels of digitalisation and a desire to move away from paper-based vehicle checks, Peter said.
“In businesses of all sizes, we are seeing a general push towards digitalisation applied across their activities and fleets are very much seen as a key element of these strategies. By doing this, companies are aiming to gain more control over vehicle expenditure, increase their operational insights, provide wider access to key data and drive compliance.”
During 2023, FleetCheck had also completely overhauled its core fleet management software, providing a more modern user interface, as well as further enhancing its driver compliance apps, he added.
“New products help to increase customer interest and many of the sales we have made during 2023 have been of our revised range, with a reasonable number to larger businesses than our historically typical user.
“The response from clients has been very positive and there has especially been much interest in our first applications of artificial intelligence to document handling, more of which will be announced next year.”
