Fleet+ with SAP integration for BVG business fleet

Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe streamline business fleet processes with Carano's comprehensive software solution, creating full transparency

Berlin, March 23rd, 2015 – Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG) have started the year by optimizing its business fleet processes with Carano's Fleet+ management software. The implementation supersedes Excel, and due to the SAP integration, all fleet staff now work within a single management system.

Each year, the BVG takes about 950 million commuters, locals and tourists safely to their destinations. The in-house business fleet, ensuring mobility of the BVG staff, consists of 400 vehicles, which are partly pooled.

Reliability and precision are core values for the transportation of our passengers, and the same counts for the internal BVG processes, says Heinrich Coenen, Head of Business Development with BVG. Fleet+ introduces full transparency and automation of all processes to the organization's fleet management, laying the foundation for future software supported streamlining.

All processes in Fleet+ from ordering and goods reception to repair clearance and invoice verification can be evaluated instantly due to interfaces connecting the software with BVG's SAP system, rendering double data administration obsolete. Fuel data as well as company pooling and long term rental data are also transfered to SAP.

The pool management functionality allows drivers to reserve vehicles online. Disposition and invoicing are organized automatically. As an innovative mobility service provider, BVG embraces efficient, ecological solutions, and therefore not only considers giving more attention to its existing car pool, but also contemplates the integration of electronic vehicles for their fleet.
