Pets At Home achieve Van Excellence with r2c Online
By: r2c Online
With nearly 450 stores nationwide and over 8,000 colleagues, Pets At Home are continuing their winning streak following their recent Van Excellence accreditation. The retail giants have signed their LCV fleet up to r2c Online's 'Core' fleet compliance management software and 'Driver' pre use check app for fast tracked best practice.
Campbell Baxter, Fleet and Compliance Manager at Pets At Home, said, "We're really happy that we've achieved Van Excellence, and joining r2c's digital compliance platform has certainly helped us with this. The maintenance and scheduling features on the platform are unparalleled, with all vehicle servicing files on one system. It's ideal and works really well for us as a business."
r2c's cloud-based technology and mobile-friendly features mean it can be used anywhere at any time. Campbell continued, "I have 24/7 access to all files from my phone, so any out of hours problems can be easily resolved whilst I'm out of office." The system also works in real-time, so users can collaborate and work productively.
Campbell explained the unexpected benefits he's found with the system so far, "Over and above the fantastic compliance and efficiency savings we've already seen, we've found additional benefits too. We're able to improve our wage system using r2c's 'Driver' app. As the pre-use and post-use checks are time and location stamped, we can use these digital documents to verify wages daily. This, instead of our manual weekly wage system, makes our processes much more efficient, incentivises completed driver checks and improves the visibility of our fleet too."
"I would certainly recommend r2c to others in the industry. We're also rolling out the software across our main HGV fleet in the near future as we've been very impressed so far."
Nick Walls, Managing Director at r2c Online, commented, "We're really looking forward to working with Pets At Home and congratulate them on their Van Excellence accreditation. Our digital solutions include full capabilities for Van Excellence, FORS and Earned Recognition for fleets wanting to be recognised for their best practice status."
