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.

We have built a strong partnership between KINTO and Molson Coors CTS over many years. KINTO fully understand the demands of our commercial fleet and we both share a common goal of reducing our vehicles off road. With a fleet of 200+ mobile engineers we are always looking for ways of reducing unnecessary downtime in our fleet. Our vans are mobile workshops, if they are off the road, it’s hard for our engineers to carry out their day job. KINTO and their supply partners are working with us to explore new opportunities to keep us moving, we are currently looking into the possibility of using mobile maintenance and servicing for our fleet, this will reduce the need to take our vans off the road. KINTO has a wealth of knowledge and expertise to advise us of all the changes in the Commercial vehicle market, we have called upon this knowledge to carry out some major projects. We have recently re branded all our fleet and currently looking to make some improvements in the manual handling devices in the vans. KINTO has been key to delivering these projects successfully.
Mark Griffiths, Service Provider & Commercial Fleet Contracts Manager at Molson Coors
“The approach KINTO delivered was true collaboration. The knowledge and support provided by Paul Moon and his wider team was outstanding and their proposal demonstrated value for money which resulted in a compliant GFSL contract being awarded. GFSL are very much looking forward to working with KINTO to roll out the new fleet and developing our relationship”.
Stephen Carter, Commercial Manager at GFSL
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.
Transport Manager, Vivid
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.
Contract Manager, Affinity Water Limited
KINTO first came to us with a very clear and concise presentation of what they had to offer us as a Fleet Management provider. The comprehensive solution presented to us was subsequently followed up by further presentations outlining all related costs together with details of how they could help us achieve our fleet objectives. With the help of a very committed KINTO team, we were able to complete the whole implementation journey, from concept right through to going live, within 3 months. We were very impressed with the professionalism shown to us throughout the whole process; in particular the capability of KINTO to implement plans effectively to solve any issues identified along the way. 11 months on they continue to provide us with a very professional service 24/7 and I have no hesitations in recommending KINTO to any other business.

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!
