Chevin: Improving a winning formula

Date: 23 January 2015   |   Author:

Chevin's Fleetwave fleet management system is still developing and improving, despite scooping 2014 BusinessCar Techie Award, as managing director Ashley Sowerby explains to Paul Barker.

Last year's improvements to Chevin's Fleetwave system saw it, after two years of being Highly Commended, make the step up to win the 2014 BusinessCar Techie Award in the fleet management category.

The Derbyshire-based company, formed in 1990, first launched Fleetwave in 2001, and won the 2014 Techie for version 2.2, which has recently been superseded by 2.3, with 2.4 coming during 2015.

"What we've done with Fleetwave in the last 12-18 months is write a lot - work on the foundations rather than the front end," Chevin managing director Ashley Sowerby tells BusinessCar. "A lot [has happened] behind the scenes to provide a stronger base for what we're building; now we're focusing on the front end and offering much more information at the appropriate level."

Sowerby emphasises the flexibility of the Fleetwave system, although he says that means there isn't a straightforward standard client base.

"We don't have a typical client. It would be good if we did because then we could focus on that," he says. "If you look at our projects - public, private, law enforcement, non-government organisation fleets - there isn't a conventional group."
