Fleet Management

ODO launch puts small businesses in the driving seat when looking after their company vehicles

ODO, the latest innovation in fleet management, officially launched its unique brand of SaaS software yesterday at a glittering event in Searceys at the Gherkin in the heart of the City of London.

ODO has been created by established British automotive technology company Drive Software Solutions Limited (DSSL) and is designed for use not just by expert fleet managers but also by HR managers, financial managers, business owners and SME business drivers on the go.

ODO leverages DSSL’s DRIVE software platform combined with the Software as a Service (SaaS) technology of the Oracle Cloud, to create the world’s first fleet management offering designed specifically for small and medium sized businesses.

ODO’s approach to software provision means that there are no up-front cost barriers and companies only pay for the service they actually need via a monthly subscription. With ODO there is no large scale desktop implementations or user training required. It is easy to use and deliberately built for non-technical users across the organisation – whether they are checking all company vehicles have up-to-date MOTs, insurance and service records, inputting a company car driver’s latest journey details, or just trying to work out when a specific vehicle is due for change.

Talking about the innovative new product, ODO’s General Manager Gordon Lyster said, “ODO addresses the issues of managing fleets which many small businesses struggle with day to day. It helps managers track costs, vehicle usage levels, maintenance and servicing records, run driver licence checks and more. The intelligence that ODO provides helps fleets stay the right side of the law when it comes to compliance and crucially for firm’s bottom lines it will mean that at last they have a way to keep costs down.”

 

ODO will offer full telematics integration as early as next month and access and input via an easy to use mobile app for iOS and Android devices by June 2018.

Gordon Lyster, General Manager, ODO, adds “It’s great to be able to welcome so many from the fleet management world to tonight’s launch in addition to our honoured guest Oracle’s Head of Technology and Cloud, John Abel. We are very proud to be the first fleet management application to go operational on the Oracle Cloud.”
