Nexus Discuss the Benefits of Vehicle Management Software

What is a vehicle management system and how can vehicle management software help a business?


Vehicle management is the administration process enabling businesses to organise their company vehicles. It includes processes such as booking vehicles, billing data, real-time MI, customer service monitoring and fines and damage management. These processes assist in lowering costs and increasing business efficiencies.


Tusker, the most awarded Car Benefit Scheme provider in the UK, utilise Nexus’ multi award-winning vehicle management system. Their unique, cutting-edge software allows their customers to book vehicles, extend agreements and review their business requirements. Due to the white labelling of Nexus’ rental management suite, Tusker has been able to reallocate management resource within the company, saving the business around £50,000 per year.


Vehicle management systems should be utilised by a range of business types including building contractors, utility companies and fuel delivery companies. Using a vehicle management system has many benefits, such as:


  • Streamlining the process of renting and managing a fleet
  • Saving time and resource by searching multiple suppliers within one platform
  • Ensuring drivers use company vehicles safely and responsibly
  • Tracking costs and data on fuel, fines and damage
  • Cutting down on administration processes to improve efficiencies
  • Monitoring potential driver issues such as fines


The administrative process is often facilitated by vehicle management software. This computer software enables a company to track all of its vehicles from a central location. Software capabilities vary from one system to another, but will often include features such as booking vehicles and monitoring driver behaviour, vehicle usage, break times and safety.


Introducing IRIS


Nexus Vehicle Rental offer a unique vehicle management system called IRIS. The rental management and mobility system allows the user to book vehicles, extend agreements and review business requirements like never before. From full billing data and real-time MI to customer service, fines and damage management, IRIS provides everything a business needs to efficiently manage their rentals.


IRIS puts the user firmly in control. After entering rental requirements the system will scour an extensive supplier network to highlight the best possible mobility solution, taking location and delivery costs into account. As the system is directly connected to Nexus’ network, booking confirmation times are exceptionally fast – under 30 seconds for most cars. Users are also able to amend orders, regulate user permissions, and analyse real-time MI all through the simple and easy to use dashboard.


MI Suite


The IRIS software can benefit a business in many ways, such as automatically presenting the most cost-effective solutions. Nexus constantly audit and reassess their suppliers’ performance so customers are always assured of the very best service levels. The software brings exciting new perspectives to vehicle rental – its MI reporting suite provides all of the historical and real-time data a company needs at a glance, offering fresh insights and helping to identify trends and areas for improvement. All key mobility data and documentation can be cross-referenced, encouraging transparent, open relationships between themselves, their customer and the supplying branch. Underpinning this approach is their dedicated Account Management team who are always on hand to support business objectives.


A number of major companies effectively manage their fleets using IRIS. One such business, Rexel UK, is a leading supplier of electrical products and solutions operating through a national network of over 250 branches. Nexus provides technology to support Rexel’s fleet needs, enabling its 3,000 employees to self-serve within Nexus’ IRIS rental booking system. The smart technology automatically identifies the most cost-effective rental solutions, advising Rexel how it can reduce its rental spend.
