Advertorial – One-stop fleet management solutions

??????????Sofico, global software provider to the asset finance, leasing, fleet and mobility industry, reached a series of new milestones, with the number of vehicle contracts managed by Miles topping the 1.5m mark for the first time. Following the latest of a series of system implementations for the Miles software, Sofico is now present at 31 different sites in 20 countries around the world.

The company first launched Miles with Auto-Interleasing AG in Switzerland in 2005 and has just seen the latest series of system implementations go live throughout Europe and Asia with major leasing company customers, both independents and captives. In addition, there are another 10 implementation projects currently ongoing with clients in Asia, Europe, Australia and Latin America.

The scope of Miles has broadened from leasing and fleet management, in response to a changing corporate automotive market, to now include retail, wholesale and mobility management. These latest developments make Miles the first hybrid fleet/retail contract management software system that is able to meet the needs of captives and leasing companies, in a market where the traditional boundaries between retail and fleet areblurring.

One reason behind its phenomenal success rate is the solid implementation methodology used to implement Miles. Based on the experience gained from the numerous implementation projects over the last 28 years, Sofico has honed and refined its implementation process to establish a custom methodology, tailored to the implementation of Miles. This allows Sofico’s experts to reduce the overall implementation time frame.

The company recently announced that its turnover has grown by 125% in the last five years while the number of people it employs has increased by more than 80% over the same period.

At the same time, the Ghent, Belgium-based business revealed that it has had its Investors in People certification renewed, confirming the success of the restructuring process it has been going through over the last two years.

Huis-vd-StijlKoenraad Van Grimbergen, CEO Asia Pacific said: “Obviously, we are delighted to hit some of these latest milestones in our ongoing development.”

“We believe Miles offers a unique proposition as a hybrid fleet and retail management system, perfected to meet the needs of our customers and their own customers’ expectations as the automotive market continues to grow and develop.”
