Assess • Advise • Develop

Sometimes a business owner or a director can have more
questions than answers!

Managing any automotive fleet, a car rental company, purchasing department or fleet department can be as depreciating to management as the assets themselves.

Is the reporting system or software the problem? You don't even have software? Can't get from point "A" to point "B" even though you own 600 vehicles? Doing things the same old way even though you know they need to be refined and updated?

RentLite and RentLite Express

Lite on your resources, Lite on your staff and training, Lite on cost but fully functional.
