The AA attends more than 3.3 million breakdowns per year – that’s equivalent to one every 9 seconds. Our vans carry nearly 1800 parts, tools and consumables to help get customers on their way – all backed up by exclusive Bosch diagnostics technology. Our patrols fix 8 out of 10 vehicles at the roadside and complete all roadside repairs in just under half an hour, on average.
The AA’s award-winning business breakdown cover is available throughout the UK and in Europe and our commitment to customer service is well known. In August 2016, Which? re-awarded the AA ‘Recommended Provider’ status for breakdown cover, an accolade we have enjoyed for many years.
As a pre-eminent supplier to the industry for many years via our many and varied relationships within the Fleet and Manufacturer sectors, the AA has long been a proud supporter and champion of talented individuals in the field. And as a previous Fleet News Award winner many times over and current holder of the Fleet Supplier of the Year Award for the second consecutive year, we know how rewarding it is to be recognised and valued for commitment and hard work. We are therefore delighted once more to sponsor the prestigious Fleet News Hall of Fame award.
Appy Fleet is a free app-based telematics solution designed to help manage your workforce behind the wheel. Brought to you by experienced telematics solution provider Trak Global Group, it combines the best features of traditional, hardware-based fleet telematics with the latest smartphone app technology.
The Appy Fleet Manager Portal is configured to let users quickly and intuitively navigate their way around the information that identifies the greatest requirements for intervention, and includes live vehicle tracking, driver behaviour league tables and much more. The Appy Fleet Driver App turns each employee’s smartphone into an accurate GPS data-gathering device, which can be placed into private mode – ideal for those with permitted personal use of company vehicles, and vehicles within the grey fleet. By uniquely tethering the app via Bluetooth to each vehicle they jump in, the system provides driver ID, too.
Nick Corrie, Trak Global Group CEO, says: “The UK’s road safety record is among the best in the world, and Trak Global has played a part in making UK roads safer during the last few years. In our young driver insurance business, Carrot, we’ve taken the highest risk group of drivers on the UK’s roads – young, newly qualified drivers – and reduced accidents by 42% by placing meaningful driving feedback in their hands via a telematics app. With Appy Fleet we want to extend that success story and help make the rest of the world’s roads safer places, too. One in 3 RTA’s in the UK involves a vehicle being driven for work purposes, and the same problem echoes globally. That’s way too many - fleet operators know they need to get to grips with this problem, and we genuinely want to help them achieve that in the easiest way possible, with the fewest possible barriers to adoption.”

Companies operating a fleet of vehicles can find their cars and vans a time-consuming and costly distraction.
The constant demands of managing contract hire suppliers or overseeing a fleet of company-owned cars and vans can be stressful.
Driver queries, garage bills, expense claims, fuel cards, accidents, speeding fines, tax renewals, MOTs, driving licence checks. It can become a full time job – and one that many companies have little experience of.
Imagine handing everything over to a team of fleet management professionals, saving money and removing all the strain. And how easy it would be to have all vehicle and driver data at your fingertips through a web-based fleet management system?
Easi-fleet management from Grosvenor Leasing does just that.
With our fixed cost fleet management service there are no call centres, voice mail queues or impersonal service. Just a ready-made fleet department saving money and freeing up your time to focus on other things.
