Having been used by many of Europe’s leading fleets and OEM networks over the last 10 years, Athoris from OEC has been developed to give fleet managers a wide choice of solutions, and subsequent pricing, to match their needs perfectly. It’s currently the software solution of choice of fleets from 50 vehicles through 500,000 vehicles or more.
‘Finding ways to cut vehicle downtime is the only way fleet and leasing companies can stay competitive’
As fleet operators and lease companies face pressure from all directions, a huge area for opportunity is the processing time of authorising the many jobs that keep a fleet on the road. Service, maintenance, repair, body, glass and MOT are all costly – both in time and money – for suppliers, fast fitters, fleets and lease companies.
Leading technology provider for the automotive industry, OEC, has found a way to do this with its innovative authorisation platform, Athoris – reducing vehicle downtime and saving millions in processing costs. This application transforms complex authorisations into a single click action, that is completed in seconds, reducing the number of manual administration processes required by technicians and leasing companies.
With access to original equipment (OE) approved data, pricing, labour and parts information, direct from the manufacturer, Athoris provides a line-by-line breakdown and automatic approval without the requirement for human interaction – reducing the number of processes and checks in the event of further approval or payment failure, and resulting in quicker integration of billings, invoicing and payments for fleet operators.
European OEMs have tried and tested Athoris, with one manufacturer saving over three million pounds per year, and eliminating an average of 80% of its authorisation time. Faster authorisation means faster completion of repairs, keeping fleets on the road as much as possible.
Also, by being a web-based service, Athoris is compatible with any third-party application. This, coupled with its e-invoicing and automatic approval for parts and accessories, with access to the OE databases, is a huge win for all companies working in the fleet sector.
