Charthire chooses RAM...

Jan 23 2015

Vehicle rental business Charthire has recently chosen our Asset 200 solution to help streamline its asset management process and more efficiently manage its large vehicle fleet. We spoke with Robert Pick, Finance Director at Charthire about the benefits the company has seen since implementing the solution.

‘’As a company, we have grown rapidly and our asset management processes were not reflecting this. Before approaching RAM, we managed all of our assets on a 21 page spreadsheet, which was at risk of human error and it was taking staff between two weeks and a month to prepare the end of month reports.’’

‘’We knew that we needed to invest in a system that could not only help us to better manage the fleet we currently have, but also one that could grow with us as we expand. In RAM’s Asset 200 software we found a system that was all of this as well as being simple to use.’’

‘’As a leasing organisation, RAM’s reporting functionality provides us with the ability to interrogate our data and gain business intelligence to forecast performance. The system allows us to do more than just manage our assets; it is enabling us to start undertaking data analysis and gain valuable business insight that will help us to identify trends, highlight opportunities and plan for growth.’’

‘’Since implementing Asset 200, we have seen significant time savings and have established a more streamlined process for the team managing the asset records. We were already using Sage 200 and our Sage business partner, Solutions for Accounting, already worked closely with RAM and recommended Asset 200 as a suitable and integrated solution. As part of the implementation process, we also went through a data cleanse, which has helped us ensure that all records are up to date and accessible to the appropriate teams. ‘’

‘’RAM has been extremely attentive to our needs as a business and I have to say that the support and assistance from its team has been second to none. They are really accommodating and will always do their best to answer any of our questions comprehensively and quickly. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them and expanding our integrations in the future.’’
