Interview with Tim Ruhoff in IHK magazine | fleetster
3 July 2015
The term “share economy” is all around – as more and more products and services are shared. Drilling machines, private cars, apartments and in case of fleetster – pool vehicles. Because of the recent buzz around the sharing-idea, our CEO Tim Ruhoff, was invited to share his thoughts on that topic in IHK magazine. As explained by Tim, the concept of Corporate Carsharing is simple – a company owns pool cars which are shared among employees. Employees are encouraged to use the cars during daytime for business trips, and after work or on weekends for private trips. For the private trips employees pay a small amount, which not only enables the company to save money, but also keeps the staff happy and increases the utilization of vehicles. Therefore, with a use of fleetster software, the companies have a complete transparency in terms of pool cars management. By analyzing usage patterns, fleet managers have an accurate overview of how many cars are actually needed, and thus can abolish redundant vehicles and reduce costs.
