Welcome to DRIVE Software Solutions
The mobility landscape across Europe is changing, driven by a number of factors. Growing populations are increasing demands on an already constrained transport infrastructure that also has to cope with the changing needs of an ageing demographic. Old models of vehicle ownership and traditional travel habits cannot keep up with emerging requirements for seamless, integrated travel options. Individuals, funders, and organizations need to embrace the new concept of “total” or “intelligent” mobility, which involves making greater use of technology, and in particular data about travel patterns, to create a new approach offering more choice and greater flexibility about how people get around.
DRIVE is once again very proud to have been able to sponsor the International Auto Finance Network Spring and Awards, a high level business event put together by the International Auto Finance Network held at Canary Wharf in London's Docklands financial district.
The event draws top executives from UK and European finance and leasing companies and sets out to look at the key tasks that lie ahead for a market being transformed by technological change.
The vehicle leasing industry essentially owns the bulk of most businesses travel budgets via vehicle costs, so acquiring the rest of the transportation spend via technology delivered mobility services should be the logical move for a vehicle leasing company set on expanding the portfolio and the revenue generated by any given account.
That's the view of DRIVE's creator and Product Director Martin Drake.
Explaining why he thinks this, Drake says, "When it comes to recruiting the best people for any business, corporate HR departments are going to be looking at what they can offer their employees in terms of a package of a car, moving on to mobility, so the driver can not only fulfil the businesses requirements, but also their personal requirements."
DRIVE Direct is a new concept from Drive Software Solutions the creators of DRIVE, a hosted managed Service which for the first time enables mid-size leasing companies to
utilise the full power of the DRIVE system.
To date there have been two stumbling blocks for midsized leasing companies when it came to accessing DRIVE, namely cost and time to deploy. DRIVE is an end to end solution. With the creation of DRIVE Direct, those two issues are removed.
