A new car-share platform hits the market

Toyota Fleet Management (TFM) has launched a new car-share platform in Australia to help businesses manage their fleet.

Titled ForceField Share, the platform is designed to monitor, organise, and control a shared vehicle fleet.

ForceField Share uses a centralised web-based scheduling, booking, and reporting system to manage shared vehicles and other assets. The platform aims to give fleet managers a complete overview over fleets starting from 5 cars to 5000 in any number of locations across Australia.

“ForceField Share has been clearly designed and developed with not only drivers in mind, but also fleet managers who will benefit from productivity and workflow improvements within their fleet,” TFM’s head of product and strategy, James Bridekirk said.

“Right from the beginning, we wanted to ensure it not only offers a very cost-effective solution, but also a very user-friendly one.

“Fleet managers can effectively identify and keep up to date with reassigning underutilised assets, stay on top of maintenance requirements and manage any damage and repairs.

“Users can quickly make and manage their bookings using a web browser on their desktop, or through the native iOS and Android mobile apps.

“The intuitive interface, extensive functionality and centralised cloud-based system enables fleets to optimise their vehicle usage, improve efficiency and help reduce fleet costs.”
