AFP launches business mobility guide

Date: 18 October 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

A new guide designed to help businesses develop a recognised mobility policy has been published by the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP).

Entitled 'How to deploy a mobility solution within your business', it has been created by the organisation's Future Mobility Steering Committee.

It is based around a three-step process, comprising research, internal engagement, and planning.

AFP chair Paul Hollick said: "Our view is that we are very much in a moment when many fleet managers are beginning to evolve into mobility managers but they don't yet have a formal strategy in place to support this transition.

"There is added impetus for this at the moment because, as we emerge from the pandemic, interest in mobility has been renewed. It was temporarily on hold because many mobility solutions rely on shared assets but that moment is now passing.

"The message we want to get across with this guide is that the move to mobility should not be a daunting one. There is a lot of data analysis, employee engagement and internal functional alignment needed, but thereafter it is relatively straightforward.

"The three steps we have outlined will take managers through this process in a simple and effective manner and, for AFP members, there is the option of talking to others who have made the same journey and can offer advice and support."

Hollick said the adoption of a mobility policy would be a different task for each business based on their individual aims and circumstances.

He said: "Mobility can mean anything from an alternative to an employee's car allowance to a full replacement of your current fleet and travel schemes, or anything in-between. It's all about identifying the right solution for you."

The new guide, which is being distributed to AFP members, follows on from an earlier AFP document, entitled 'What is mobility and mobility management?'.

Hollick said: "The two documents work well together. The first sets out a consensus view of what constitutes mobility management and the second provides a roadmap to adopting a mobility policy."
