When it comes to funding your vehicles, mixing methods can help save fleets money.
As a fleet management specialist, we are not under pressure to sell, nor promote, any particular form of funding or way of operating a vehicle fleet.
KINTO have been running our fleet for some time now and the service is one of excellent quality, tailored to our specific requirements. In addition, the customer service has been consistently reliable and friendly, all the team have a truly excellent focus on client care, and are willing to adapt to our requirements whenever possible.

We decided to implement KINTO Autobid due to the innovative nature of the product. It meets all the requirements of our business, ensuring continuous best value whilst offering all the benefits of a sole supply agreement. This innovative tendering solution has enabled us to save both time and costs, whilst offering our drivers an enjoyable, consistent ordering journey. KINTO is a valued partner, continuously looking for ways to improve our fleet operation – as demonstrated perfectly by Autobid!

We needed to move the contract from our incumbent fleet provider to KINTO within a short timeframe. The transfer was completed very quickly and efficiently by the KINTO project management team who also ensured that all legal issues were dealt with in a timely manner to ensure there was no delay in the mobilisation. We provided our requirements, policies and internal processes to the project management team who subsequently implemented our needs with minimal impact to the business. All cost of change was restricted to the fleet department, ensuring that there was no decline in productivity to the business as a whole. The KINTO price structure has also enabled us to make savings to our fleet operational costs. The service provided by the project management team, including taking responsibility for tasks outside of their normal day-to-day role, has been fantastic with all issues, risks and queries being resolved quickly and efficiently by the team.

At Incora, our green agenda is important to us so we look at ways of reducing our carbon footprint across our organisation. Having a green company car scheme supports this. We offer PHEV and EVs only to employees who are eligible for the scheme, we also help them get set up by installing charge points at their homes and as well as providing workplace charging. We work with KINTO, as it was clear that they shared our values and have the ability to support us as we continue to further improve upon our green agenda.

Since implementing KINTO Autobid, we have been able to save significant time when searching for contract hire quotes. The system’s user friendly interface has made it easy for us to obtain competitive quotations from a panel of funders. We have been particularly impressed by the speed of response and how easy this system is to use. It is early days for us, but we are optimistic that cost savings can be made on our vehicle acquisitions and we will work closely with KINTO to track and report these savings.

The on-boarding process was very good and I can’t fault the way it was project managed for us; the regular meetings and discussions were excellent and gave me great confidence that we would be able to achieve the switchover in a successful manner. The legal implications and contractual issues were also well controlled and communicated, leaving me in no doubt that everything would be covered off – which it was. In terms of timescales the on-boarding exercise is not particularly quick but I never expected it to be so. Any supplier claiming that the process will be completed very quickly will not be going about it properly and that’s where KINTO inspire a high level of confidence because the project is mapped out in detail and demonstrates that they know what they’re talking about. This is particularly true where we required bespoke consideration to our particular needs for which KINTO took the trouble to consider our requirements carefully. One key thing that KINTO do well is they keep the original Business Development Manager in the on-boarding process for a long period of time to ensure that the requirements discussed pre-tender and during the tender are kept in focus and fully understood. In terms of disruption to our day to day activities, switching from our old Fleet Management Company to KINTO has not really caused any problems.

As we use the Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Portal the pricing is always competitive but KINTO are always good on pricing. The customer service we received is outstanding and the order process seems to be quicker than most other companies. We receive constant updates throughout the order process and arranging delivery is always quick and simple. Our account manager is always on hand to help with general queries and questions and always replies quickly. They have far exceeded our expectation with the customer service they provide. This is the main reason I would recommend KINTO.
