Online SMR platform ServicePoint has made a deal with fleet management company Rivus to include Rivus' 55 garages in the ServicePoint network.
ServicePoint offers businesses that maintain their own fleet a way to more easily manage SMR by offering a network of garages through an online portal.
Fleet management firm Rivus has a network of partner garages, as well as a number of in-house workshops. ServicePoint customers can now use Rivus' in-house garages.
Paul Holland, managing director of UK fuel, at Allstar Business Solutions, which operates ServicePoint, said: "Rivus has undoubted expertise and ability when it comes to fleet SMR, and we believe they will be an important addition to the overall network available through the platform, which now totals more than 4,600 franchise, independent and fast fit outlets.
"Of special interest to ServicePoint users at this moment in time, as we all deal with the coronavirus crisis, will be their 30 mobile technician units, which add important flexibility for our users."
Chris Billington, business development director at Rivus, added: "Our corporate history is based in BT Fleet's SMR operations, so we are very strong in the commercial vehicle arena but are also able to offer servicing for all makes of vehicle to a very high standard.
"At the moment, our customer base is centred around the mission critical and complex fleets operated by our corporate customers, providing essential services such as telecommunications, utilities and other core infrastructure sectors.
"However, we are very interested in expanding our footprint and joining the ServicePoint network provides access to a new pool of potential customers, ranging from SMEs to major corporates."
