Greene King upgrades company car scheme

Greene King, pub retailer and brewer, has launched a new fleet of 300 company cars and 100 cash allowance options, provided by Zenith Provecta.

Zenith Provecta will provide a fully outsourced fleet management and contract hire solution. The company has worked closely with Greene King in order to integrate its systems with the brewer's flexible benefits portal. Zenith Provecta will also provide pool car management to reduce ancillary hire car spend.

To improve control over Greene King's cash allowance drivers, they will be managed through Zenith Provecta's on-line cash allowance management system (CAMS), which manages the financial, and Health and Safety considerations of drivers who are not in traditional company cars.

This will allow each employee to manage his or her own profile within the web-based system, which includes key information such as vehicle details, maintenance history, regular and compulsory policy checks including self certification questions relating to insurance and MOTs.

It sends email prompts to the driver requesting information updates, conducting policy compliance checks and providing maintenance, service, VED, MOT and insurance reminders, as well as reminders to check tyres, water and oil. The system also automatically checks the driver's license directly with the DVLA.
