Having previously worked with a more than one supplier, htec were keen to work with a sole provider, a partner who could provide a complete fleet management package.
The team at htec had a need to more effectively manage their fleet, including better supporting their drivers by taking away the administrative burden of running their vehicles, freeing up driver time to focus on their roles and, ultimately, their customers.
Gofor were selected as htec's partner of choice for fleet management for three key reasons. Firstly, the ability to provide htec a complete fleet package, connecting with the business across the entire lease cycle, was crucial in enabling htec to consolidate under one sole fleet management provider.
Secondly, Gofor's position as a broker, working with multiple funders across the leasing sector, was important, helping to ensure that the team at htec had the confidence they were accessing competitive rates at all times.

“The support from Gofor has allowed us to be more efficient and effective with our fleet management processes– saving us time and money!
For example, having access their driver technology has reduced the need for more administrative heavy spreadsheets and the time our team has to take in managing these.
Gofor are excellent to work with, explaining the process and tech along the way.”
