How does the fleet procurement process work these days?
What is multi-bidding?
Multi-bidding software compares individually requested parameters, such as vehicle type, features, mileage, leasing period, etc. with the pre-defined data and determines the most suitable offer on the spot. Therefore offers can be collected and compared more efficiently. Flottenmanagement Magazine points out that the competitive forces between the providers involved in such platforms can lead to lower leasing costs than with a manual request for quotes.

Vehicle procurement can be expanded with the comm.mobile web app for fleet users and lessees. This enables companies to provide their employees with a vehicle configurator that only lists vehicles and features which comply with their car policy. Both price and monthly rates can be calculated and shown immediately. Parameters such as mileage, leasing period, monetary value and much more can be adjusted and recalculated in seconds. This enables employees to work independently which not only saves time but also has an enormous motivating effect.
