LeasePlan USA Announces Enhancements to ePlan
LeasePlan USA announces application and administrative upgrades to ePlan, the company’s Internet-based fleet management solution that enables clients to access centrally managed data in real-time. Version 4.1 offers users enhanced functionalities such as the ability to view accident images, download stock reports, and replace vehicle management materials online. In addition, the company says ePlan 4.1 enables users to set-up multiple level assignments for level administrators. The new Accident Images function shows users photos of the vehicles involved in each incident along with copies of vendor invoices and all correspondence between LeasePlan and the insurance company on behalf of the client. Prior to ePlan 4.1, users tracked the collision repair process through “Collision Notes” that were entered by a representative in LeasePlan’s accident management department. LeasePlan was the first fleet management company to bring its clients document image retrieval via the Internet.With regard to reports, users now can download stock reports into spreadsheets, giving them the ability to edit the format as well as sort and manipulate the data to generate custom reports for internal audiences. Two new forms are available through ePlan 4.1, including a vehicle management materials form, through which users can order fuel cards, driver kits, coupon books and national account cards. In addition, a vehicle service termination form also is available in the instance that a user wants to discontinue service on a vehicle. Within 24 hours of LeasePlan receiving the completed form, service is discontinued. Not only have applications been enhanced in ePlan 4.1, but also administrative functions. As part of the enhanced administrative functions, users who have full administrative access can reset passwords and change e-mail addresses as well as assign multiple levels of access for level coordinators in various locations. LeasePlan USA, a subsidiary of ABN AMRO Lease Holding, is a vehicle leasing and fleet management solutions company. The company, which manages more than 1.3 million vehicles worldwide, offers clients customized plans for total fleet cost reduction through its products.
