Introduction

Crash Management provides independent accident management & collision repair services to fleets of all sizes. A small sample of references is provided on our Testimonials page. We work closely with a range of alliance partners in the car leasing, car manufacturing and insurance broker sectors.

Our value proposition is simple – professional fleet management saves clients time, resources and money, and protects driver safety. Accident response and collision repair administration is time-consuming and requires specialised expertise to ensure consistent technical and service quality. It is a non-core activity for most businesses that consumes non-productive time, so is an obvious out-sourcing opportunity for all fleets.

In addition to our core accident management offering, we also provide a range of service extension options and can fully customise a programme to suit your unique operational requirements. This will ensure the organisation is fleet fit and compliant  with the Health & Safety at Work Act legislation that applies to all aspects of business including driving risk. Standard Operating Procedures can be developed to suit the most demanding fleet requirements, ensure consistency and compliance throughout the country. Our bundled services can be delivered at very competitive rates.

Sophisticated incident data analysis is used to understand the profile of drivers, the fleet, and the operating environment.  The resulting intelligence supports targeted remedial actions that are proven to reduce cost in all aspects of the business.

Management Reports

A wide range of management reporting options is available and can be tailored to suit. This includes simple monthly activity summary and claim cycle-time reports. More complex options include incident data that analyses accident causes. This risk management tool identifies common incident causes including recidivist drivers, other factors and trends. This supports targeted remedial action that has been proven to reduce accident rates over time, resulting in insurance premium savings. Lower incident rates result in fewer driver injuries, less time off work and reduced business disruption. Information is power.

Health & Safety

A mobile workforce is the back-bone of the economy and must be protected. Any vehicle used for business purposes is deemed to be a place of work so fleet operations are subject to the H&S obligations imposed by the Act. In addition to identification of any hazard (a motor vehicle/driving) this includes a requirement to identify the probability of accident or harm, or “risk”, and develop appropriate responses. In order to comply any fleet operator must demonstrate best practice in fit-for-purpose vehicle selection and maintenance safety, and develop robust driver safety protocols. In addition to a tailored Vehicle Use Policy this can include a formal Driver Rescue & Repatriation Plan, and the resources to provide robust 24/7 response. A specialist accident management provider can deliver all this, instant injury notifications, comprehensive management reporting, targeted remedial action that is proven to reduce incidents, and more.

Case study

A case study focused on the fleet efficiencies delivered to a local Council client was published in Local Government Contact magazine. Prior to outsourcing to Crash Management the client had 2.5 FTE’s involved in managing the fleet of less than 150. This included organising accidents and repairs manually using a paper-based system with limited reporting. Crash Management was tasked with delivering a service that would provide instant 24/7 driver response in emergencies, and take full responsibility for the end-to-end accident process. This involved co-ordination of assessing, repairs and all logistics including guaranteed delivery of late-model courtesy cars.

The objective was to reduce the client’s over-all time and cost for management, staff and drivers. Another key requirement was an improvement in fleet utilisation while improving both technical and customer service standards. We achieved this by stream-lining processes and delivering service over our cloud-based portal. The client had secure log-in access and complete control with minimal input, and automated monthly summary reporting improved information flows. An improvement in driver responsibility and accountability was also achieved, along with a significant reduction in incident rates. This case study provides a clear example of how we can add value for any  organisation aspiring to be fully fleet fit.
